Good morning from Greece lads!

On my opinion, the best team of Melchester Rovers 1968-76 is:
Charlie "the cat" Carter-Noel Baxter-Duncan McKay-Goeff Giles-Jimmy Slade-Lofty Peak-Mervyn Wallace-"Blackie" Gray-Roy Race-"Jumbo" Tradgeon-Vernon Elliot.

I agree.
I think there is a misunderstandind about those two players . The right must be Ken Millar and Derek Cooper.
They left Melchester in summer 1971, replaced by Noel Baxter and Ralph Derry, remember?
I beleive that gooner x and me are fans of the same period of the comic!!!
I was reading the story through the pages of two Greek Magazines, durind the seventies...

It is difficult to choose, but perhaps I would include the following:

Assistant Manager: Geoff Giles

Keeper: Andy Styles
Defenders: Duncan Mackay, Steve Nobby Wootten, Johnny Dexter, Noel Baxter
Midfielders: Blackie Gray, Vernon Elliot, Olly Olson
Forwards: Roy Race, Roy Race Jnr, Mervyn Wallace

Subs: Charlie Carter, Pak Soon, Bruce Miller, Jumbo Trudgeon, Bruno Johnson.

What do other readers think??

Perhaps on reflection Andy Maclaren and Karl Bruckner do deserve to be in the team! Although maybe only as substitutes!

The problem is that there are so many good players in the history of ROTR, and so few places in the All Star Team.

So far no-one has mentioned any of the players who emerged post-93 (apart from RR Jnr). Do any readers think Paul (Delroy of the Rovers) Ntende should be in the all-time team?

How about this as a team with "attitude"

Rapper Hardisty
Nobby Wootten
Duncan McKay
Geoff Giles
Jimmy Slade
Johnny Dexter
Mozzie Mostin
Terry Spring
Rocky Race
Matt Croker
Chancer Clark

Does anybody know where any of the Rovers are now playing/coaching? (ie where are Jamie Nash, Delroy Ntende, Dazza Chapman, Springo, Rapper, Mozzie etc).

Was the Gosden character in Hammersmith (England U21 coach/Danefield assistant I think) the same Nat Gosden of Rovers or a relative of him?

Keep chatting guys. It's very quiet over here in Oz regarding ROTR.
