Very good Brian I recognised him instantly

Oh my goodness, Brian, that background! How did you manage that? Perfect tho', around Sir Bobby.

Thank you very much Denis and Marjorie. Very pleased you recognised him, Denis. He was one of my footballing heroes. Patience was the key to the background, Marjorie, and I wasn't really patient enough. Thanks to both for the comments. Appreciated. Brian
