    I am not sure why we keep banging on about someone's colour, but if you are segregating footballers by colour, Mike Small was head and shoulder above Connor IMO.
    And there lies the problem. As mentioned previously it’s an interview for black history month.

      Hull City v Brighton and Hove Albion, 25 January 1986
      2 - 3

      Terry Connor scored the winner.

      Easily one of my all time Top 5 Albion goals.

      Loved that game.

      Took about ten hours to get home though - train broke down in the freezing weather on the way back.
      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

      Awesome away day and we bathed in hot sunlight, our coats stacked. Whilst they shivered in the ice cold shade, with snow stacked against their hordings. Then came Peterborough away!

      His goal against Liverpool in the FA Cup was pretty special too.

      WE are not doing anything. The club are publishing an article during Black History Month about one of our early black players and the issues he suffered.

      Please forgive me I missed that it was being linked in that way.

      I suppose it was like my quote of Small being head and shoulder above Connor, you guys missed that one.
      Reality had hit hard

      NSC needed levelling up.

      The task was huge, but someone had to do it.

      He was our striker when I first stated going, him and Danny Wilson were my favourite players.

      I make on apology of retelling this for the bazillionth time with the bazillionth embellishment.


      I forget how it got too 2-2, but we spent the entire second half defending, down t'other end.
      I think they had 326 consecutive corners.

      Finally we popped out, down their left.
      The tension was releasing.
      I was stood at the back of our small terrace behind the far post.
      ? is now in the Hull half of the pitch, for the first time in 32 minutes.
      TC was busting to the near post.

      We surged forward.
      The cross came in.
      I fell over.
      TC rose like a majestic salmon.
      Hands came down and grabbed at me.
      The ball glanced off TC's forehead.
      Every part of me that had be grabbed was thrown into the air.
      The ball hit the bag of the net right in front of us.
      Just as my entire body is about 2 foot above the rest of us.



      Oh what a game.

      My Terry Connor story is not so embellished but still as enjoyable.... I was only able to get tickets for the SW stand instead of the north or NW where I would usually go..., Myself and the 1,000 or do other fans knew about a second before the rest of the fans that we were 2-0 up because Connor was set away and ran on to a fantastic ball... we were in a straight line between Connor, Grobbelar and the goal... Grobbelar tried to make himself big but Terry curled it round him perfectly.... we were celebrating before the ball hit the back of the net.... marvellous days, I was 24 and this was the first ever live televised FA Cup game on a Sunday...

      . at the final whistle we all danced a jig of joy and after a short celebration tuned back to give the liverpool fans in the NE away section the bird but... they had all gone ! I have never seen a terrace empty faster than that away section at the Goldstone that day .

      TC was one of our fave players mid 80's.

      Didn't he play for England U21's and score . . . (at the Goldstone? Seem to remember a U21 game there )
