    Video - Andy Rollings v Justin Fashanu (Brighton v Norwich 1979/80)


    0 Not allowed!
    After trying to get hold of this for many years, I've finally tracked down footage of Rollings' sending off against Fashanu. It was to be Rollo's last game at the Goldstone Ground.

    It is towards the end of this match. The goals have previously been posted.

      just missed out on this era,so always a pleasure to watch.
      In Deo Fidemus we know our history,yet we embrace change-Hello from the real Brighton

      Posh? i'd say a non clock watcher,an early riser,creator of ones own fortune,a grafter,a clever dick,an inheritor,a late home type,one that makes sacrifice,gifted maybe.

      I was at that game, what you don't see in the video is the fact that all through the game Fashanu had been using his elbows and Rollo had taken several thumps in and around the face before the sending off incident.
      The ref had let Fash get away with loads and I think Rollo blew up when he really got lamped because he was not getting any protection from the ref.
      I had run 17 miles from Grayshades before the school leopard caught me.....

      thing that occurs to me is that after watching MOD this morning if that game had happened now the ref would have never had the whistle out of his mouth = now its a bit of a girls game

      good game though

      My thoughts exactly. Brought a big smile to my face hearing the commentator sticking up for Rollings after he absolutely lamped Fash. Compare that to the pundits on MOTD last night describing those two WBA penalties as "stonewall" - the game has indeed changed, for the worse.
