That would be my guess....
...or Oddbod Jnr off ‘Carry On Screaming”.
That’s him, not a looker. I saw him in the same midfield as Francis and Venables at the beginning of the 72/73 promotion season and he was comfortably as impressive as them. My Dad thought he was going to be a fixture for England for years. Then he got his leg smashed at Fulham. He got more game time in a second stint with the club in the late seventies, but it was quite sad, he really was a shadow of the glimpses we had seen.
One of my greatest Rs memories - as a kid my parents took me to a Rangers pre-season open day, pretty sure it was Gunnersbury Park but can't quite remember. I was never a great footballer, but after being pushed into line by my dad, I queued up to take penalties against the great man. I scored two out of three, and was overjoyed as he gave me a hug. Looking back, I'm sure he let them in but I still don't care!
I was at the game at Fulham when Paul Went broke Busby's leg.
(so much so that I passed out)
Yeah I was there as well........awful injury, the Fulham keeper was there helping him and shouting at the ref to stop the game........unfortunately he was never the same player after that.....
Sì, è vero, è Samuel Di Carmine!
Anyone know who this player is?

He came on as a substitute in our 1982 FA Cup Final replay.
Without Googling it i haven't a clue.....
He was with us from 1979 - 1986 but only made 67 appearances, scoring 5 goals. Mainly as a sub.
I looked him up and even then didn’t remember him.
Maybe it's just me. Living so close to the ground I would often be hanging around collecting autographs etc. He was really a really nice man and always had time for the fans. I was only thirteen at the time, he must've left a good impression on me regardless of performances.
Perhaps that's why I remember him and not more prominent players. Memory can be a selective funny old thing and you can recall odd things just by experiencing something good and others that are more worthy but you just didn't pick up on them. I think?
This! Webb and McLintock were brilliant for us on the pitch, Great skill and experience but also huge characters for the team and fans. Hollins was also out of that same unique mould. I don’t think you see players like that any more - probably due to the increase in professionalism and players are (required/made to be) more robotic these days.
