As I remember the white kit was used during the FA Cup run. I agree we did ware the white kit at Orient.
The Millwall fans tried to get the game abandoned towards the end and the Blues fans surrounded the pitch to stop them getting on the pitch.

I think one of the best scenes was thousands of Blues fans coming out of Piccadilly station and filling the whole of the road, pavements the load, down to the bottom of the hill. God we were run back to the station after the 3-1 defeat.

We'd played in all white up at Hillsborough just before , Des

I guess the club felt like using it again as a lucky omen

It was a night game too.....maybe it was to take the p*** out of Millwall as their first choice kit was all white as well...LOL

I'd swear there were actually more Millwall fans than Orient that night …..Chaotic night.....the pre match hoax bomb scare even made News At Ten …..Trevor Macdonald, the butt of many a Lenny Henry gag

One thing that always sticks in my mind ...….we just made the last regular train out of Euston back to New St with seconds to spare....think it was 1115 or 1125 pm

Agreed, never really recovereld from that. I don’t know if it’s anecdotal or not but Bob Latchford was said to be so bitter about the sale he disowned Blues and never attended any reunions although he was/is a regular at Everton events.

Spion, he certainly took to life at Everton where they have him down as a lege!
Sadly for us he scored more goals for them than for us.
Here’s a fact! Between 72 & 81 he scored more top division goals than ANYONE ELSE!

Pat Phelan on Corrie has mentioned Bob Latchford more than once ...
Southside Blue , not only keeping the blues alive but also singlehandedly saving the British Manufacturing Industry .

May be true, but scoring 30 league goals for the toffees, and playing for England can't have made him too unhappy...

Also, there was a photo of Bob, Bob the Hat & TF carrying out a breaking of the ground ceremony when building of the new Tilton & KOP stands commenced.

Nah, I don't believe that's true.

First time Latchford came back after joining Everton he made a big deal of standing in the centre-circle and applauding all four sides of the ground...though I think he went on to score two goals once the match started...

I've read his book and I've spoken to him about it personally.

Blues wanted the money and he was fine with leaving, there was no bitterness.

Spike, yes I spoke to him when he came back to launch his autobiography. He definitely thought a hell of a lot about Everton, wasn’t anti Blues but not as euphoric about them as I thought he would be.

That German kit v qpr? In the cup? Bloody hell Iwas at that match we lost 2.0 but sprake had one of his better games!

I stand corrected. I was certain they worn hooped socks, however I have found a black and white image that shows Bob Hatton against West Brom in the mainly yellow and black band socks (or light and black).
As you get older the mind starts to go.
