James was on their books at the time, but I've got a feeling that Grobbelaar played that match. He was getting more and more erratic towards the end of his career and I think that that match was just about the final straw (if indeed it was him ... I'm not 100% sure)
I'm pretty sure it was James. He and Flowers were considered two of the best keepers in the country at the time and to see them gift goals to Oldham was sickening.
