SAFC have only has one full English international goallkeeper/


Albert McInroy who sadly died on this day in 1985...

Albert started as a left winger, but later turned g/k..

He played 215 times for us between 1923-1929, then we sold him to.............yep the mags.

His only cap came in 1926 in a 3-3 with Northern Ireland...

Mapson played in a war time International against Wales, but seemingly that doesn't count ...

He was a member of the 1937 cup winning team, and played some games in the 1936 league winning side

Just looked, was at SAFC for 18 years.....must have been good.

Was the last surviving member of the 37 cup team, till he died in 99..

How about this then.

You probably knew that when we won the cup in 1973, Don Revie was the Leeds United Manager.

There was some talk in the early 70s of him comng to Roker as Manager, as he had a great admiration for the club and the fans. But it never happened.

Don Revie came to fame as a player with Manchester City.

These days, 'tactics' are part and parcel of the modern game, but back then they were new fangled.

Revie was not the archetypal big bustling centre forward, he was more of a 'ball playing deep lying centre forward, spraying passes around.
It was known as the Revie Plan.

Revie came to Sunderland of course... spent two years here, 1956 - 1958 before moving onto Leeds Utd.
Saw him once in the relegation season.
We played Chelsea at Roker Park , 2-2 in the fog/sea fret under the Roker Lights for the second half... magical for a 10 yera old !

Revie Plan







From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia







Jump to: navigation, search



The Revie Plan was a tactical system in association football used by Manchester City in the 1950s. The system was named after Manchester City player Don Revie, who had the most important role in it.

In 1953, English football was astounded by the Hungarian team which beat England 6–3 at Wembley Stadium.
The Revie plan was a variation on the tactics used by the Hungarians,
involving Don Revie playing as a deep lying centre forward. Revie
started attacks by coming into the centre of the field to receive the
ball, drawing the opposing centre-half out of position.

The system was first implemented by the Manchester City reserve team,
who using the system went unbeaten for the last 26 games of the 1953–54 season. Before the start of the 1954–55 season, Manchester City manager Les McDowall
called his team into pre-season training two weeks early to try the new
tactic. Manchester City lost their first game using the system 5–0, but
as the players became more used to the system it started to become more
successful. Using the system Manchester City reached the 1955 FA Cup Final, but lost to Newcastle United 3-1. The following year City again reached the final where they played Birmingham City and won.[1]

Depend which part of the MON theory we look at.

If we want a 'finisher' in the middle, it would have to be Cloughie..

If we want two effective flyers on the wing, it would be Hooper on the right, and Mulhall on the left.
Incidently, Mulhall had a reputation for hitting the ball 'hard'
I think he was timed at about 68 mph

So push comes to shove..

Clough for Fletcher
Hooper for Johnson
Mulhall for McClean...

Who'd have the most impact? (nowt like being put on the spot)

Nice story for you. About 3 years ago, Fiona McDonald was setting up a Falkirk internet board. I provided the first page of the first issue for her with an article about Alex Parker, arguably Falkirk's greatest ever player. Out of the blue, I get a message from a young fella in his teens. He said : "My great-uncle played for Sunderland. George Mulhall". I got back to him "I remember George. Good left winger who scored quite a few goals, fast, direct, hard shot a bit like Willie Ormond. If I remember rightly, we signed him from Aberdeen." He came back : "Cutey, you're spot on. He still lives in a village just outside of Aberdeen. I had dinner with him the weekend before last." I replied : "Well next time you see your great-uncle George, please tell him there are guys at Sunderland who still remember him well." I never heard any more, but it was good to know that George is still alive and well. He was a good player.

I was roughing it in Cyprus during 61-64 but religiously every week the match report pages from  the Pink and Sunday Sun arrived on Thursdays. My old man and others always reckoned that had Alan Brown stayed we would have ruled for years.

Mind you he still blamed him for our relegation in 1958 as he replaced the pros with kids too quickly thinking we were safe to do so.
