    I think between 1969 and 1971 we handed out a few aggregate thrashings in Europe.
    IF Mjondalen 12-2
    PO Larnaca 8-0
    FC Nantes 7-1

    I was there for that game, first time watching ice hockey, thought we had a world beating team after that match :hehe: didn't really understand the game at the time, we were very impressed with our Canadians Lawless, Olivier and especially big Bill Taylor.

    Those early days of the Devils were great fun, the ongoing battles of Chuck Taylor of Telford and Lawless were great fun.

    I remember Telford had some right handfuls playing for them, one bloke called Kel Land looked mad as fuck, no front teeth and he was so big he didn't need protective padding.

    Found a picture of Telford's Kel Land, he looks handy.

    My first game was the return fixture against Telford after the devils walked off at their place due to telford’s dirty tactics.
    I went basically because a colleague told me it would kick off. It didn’t but I remember a bucket collection to pay the fine and wondering where everyone was going after the third period because I thought it was four quarters like American football!

    I can remember Liverpool putting 9 past Crystal Palace in a league game.

    That was painful to watch, Wales had reached their lowest point so I think this was the catalyst to get Graham Henry (the great redeemer) in to sort it out, and he did.
