I'm ex campion as well and looking at Danny Cowley's birthday then he should have been in the same year as me but I don't remember him at all. He would certainly have played football with many of my year mates as there were some fantastic players playing for teams all around havering.

Also a Campion lad

Played football with Danny & Nicks Dad back in the 80s. They used to come and watch, remember they were not always allowed in the bar due to their age.

Remember seeing the Danny(maybe Nick as well) coaching younger kids who were not much younger than themselves, that was over Raphael Park.

The whole family are really nice, a few years ago Danny spotted me at an athletics meeting in Milton Keynes and made a point of talking to me, cant believe how he remembered me.

Would be great if they could one day be in charge.

Let's see how they cope with setting up to play Everton. Not too shabby so far!

They're doing ok and the goal was excellent speed movement and composure, I just hope they can pull off the win as they will be under the cosh from this very strong Everton team. :scarfer:

Lincoln, I did my secondary school years in Dunholme attending William Farr and watched Lincoln City a lot as a teen. But my first love (as yours) has always been West Ham United, even though I came from South of the river (Battersea).

Six games in Lincoln are 2nd, really think he'd be better off staying and finishing the amazing job him and his brother are doing. Sheff Weds although historially a major draw are a very unstable club to be joining with the owner currently trying to sell, Cowley could quickly become the next Nathan Jones.

I think he'll stay, personally. Doesn't seem the sort to walk away during the season.

If he carries on the way he's going there will be bigger better clubs knocking on his door.

Sheffield Wednesday have called a press conference for this afternoon, could it be the Cowley brothers?

Bad loss to top of the league, Wycombe at the weekend for the imps.

Cowley brothers set to join Huddersfield too. Sad to see them go, but excited to see what they produce with Huddersfield in the Championship.

Rumours are strange if to be believed, choosing Huddersfield over S Weds and WBA.

Fresh developments... not great news for Lincoln, if correct.

Good luck to him/them.

Hopefully turn their season around and have a good push at promotion.

Couple of seasons of top flight management, before joining us when Pellers retires, after leading us to cup glory.

I have been wanting to tell this story for over a year, but felt the timing wasn't right.

I can totally relate to this story growing in Stafford during the 80's. I had no reason to pick WHU but saw highlights of a game on TV and that was it (always said it could have been worse as we were playing Grimsby that day). With local teams Stoke and Wolves enduring periods of decline most of my mates supported Liverpool and Man Utd so I did suffer. Bizarrely a few switched back to Wolves at the end of the decade when Steve Bull came om the scene.

I was aware that Danny Cowley and his brother were big hammers fans and agree that he could well be a future manager especially if he can turn Huddersfield around.

Local teams
