Daines was great as an under study as well.He still had his moments when he got the job,but wasn't a suitable replacement for big pat.He was bad. We're really spoilt for choice at keeper, Kendall, Keller, Sullivan, Gomes. Even Barry Daines who was meant to be great as a youth but when he finally got in the team after Jennings left was pretty poor.
Yeah he had gone stale waiting for his chance for so long. Impossible to follow Jennings as you say.Daines was great as an under study as well.He still had his moments when he got the job,but wasn't a suitable replacement for big pat.
No shame in that though,to be fair.
I was at this game. People also tend to forget that we had three great chances to score, before their first goal. Not saying we would have won, but it might have put a slightly different slant on proceedings.An old scouse mate of mate of mine, always said he was MOTM when we lost to them 7-0 in 78/79 season.
He wasn't taking the piss either
