I was just reading......
"Norman Wisdom was a lifelong supporter and a former board member of football team Brighton and Hove Albion. He also liked Everton and Newcastle United".....
A quote from Norman Wisdom himself, a few years ago...
"I like Everton because they're a big club and over the years have usually done well in both the cup and the league. Over the past six seasons they've struggled, but made sure they've not been relegated. The fans are so passionate, it's like they will the players to stay in the Premiership. I'm also a Newcastle fan and, although I was upset when Duncan Ferguson left Everton, at least he went to another great team".....

Yep !!!! A typical 'Weed' fan.

I can confirm that Norman Wisdom was a fan of Brighton & it was his team & yes there was a time when he was on the board. His son & grandsons didn't see the light & sadly are also very very big fans of Brighton & attend matches regularly.

Didn't Peter Taylor (player version), who managed both us and the 'weeds, do a very good impersonation of him?

Kenny Sansom did too.

I seem to remember Norman Wisdom being introduced at half-time at a Man City v Palace match in the late 80's or possibly later -anyone remember?

Sad thread.

Furk, the increasing tetchiness of your posts reminds me of the marked change in the Bottster before his full mental breakdown. Friendly warning.

Whatever happened to Botty? Was it a full gender realignment?

Remember him coming on at halftime in the FA cup semi-final with Liverpool, did some silly routine and ended with a shout into the microphone of "come on the reds"
Hated him ever since

Did he really?

I've always disliked Norman Wisdom but always felt it was slightly irrational. I should trust my instincts more.
