Was talking with a passionate Wr**h*m fan in work today about the definition of a Legend.

Its not easy to explain to someone who's never had one play for their club. biggrin.gif

Simple answer.....

GRAHAM BARROW bowdown.gif

Not only Sir Harrys onfield general he was a briliant manager for us.That tit Wright tried to sully his name but no chance in my book.Absolute nailed on legend at this club and gave us our LEAGUE promotion....Thompson and Pugh on the wings.

Just class.

ANDY MILNER I SALUTE YOU


LONG LIVE THE SEALS

Here comes the wise man
And there goes the fool
You see that burnt out world that he is living in
I don't need to look for the rules
Here comes the donkey
Chained to a ten ton plough
He'll never make that hill in a million years
Whip crack beating down

Absolutely. Yes, KKK won us a proper big trophy as champions, and getting promoted from the Conference is arguably a more difficult task than getting promoted from Division Four, but we really were a big fish in a small pond in 03/04, and anyone could've got that side promoted. Barrow's team punched above its weight, and one of the biggest shames of the Deva era must be that he didn't get to stick around to continue the job. Who knows how we'd have got on the next year had things not been so shambolic? Never really had a fair crack of it when he's been employed here since then, either, so it's in no way affected his reputation for me.

Just disappointing that promotion under Barrow is one of my first memories watching Chester, really - I might've expected good times on a regular basis after that, but it's been mostly crap since then!

Graham barrow did it not only as a player but a manager as well also a top bloke to chat to bowdown.gif

Cant disagree CB. The football played the season we got promoted under Barrow was the best I have ever seen a Chester team play.

Someone asked me my favourite ever Chester game at the Legends Night, and I picked the 3-2 win over Preston at the Deva that year. What a game, what an atmos.

For some reason I've never seen the goals on telly, but they live in my head

I remember hearing an interview with Harry Mac on the radio before a game when Barrow was suspended for the match.
Asked how he would cope without his midfield general he replied "he is irreplacable"
Said it all for me
Great player
Great manager

A lot of ex-players are "legends" in at least one Blues fan's mind, but GB is legendary as a player and manager in so many Blues fans' minds - and that's what makes a real LEGEND.

It's a real shame he was unable to attend last Thursday - but I'm sure he can be persuaded to attend an event in the future. It would be great to hear him talk again about his heydays at City

Can still see Graham Lancashire superbly knocking the winner in now. Great game, great goals, great side. Now THOSE were the days!!
