porterfield 73

Ian Porterfield has died today. He scored the stunning goal for Sunderland against Leeds in the 1973 F.A. Cup final. It was a beaut. Me and Geoff also named the studio where we recorded all the Kosmonaut songs after him. When I was younger and enjoyed football I scored quite a few goals as Ian Porterfield then as Gary Rowell, then I started collecting records and wearing glasses full time and my football career and interest in it came to an end. I think I'll watch the final again on Saturday though.
