    I don't believe Len was ever thrown at Sam Bartram!

    Sam (allegedly) had his goal set on fire by Pompey fans.

    My grandad spoke of Sams goal net being set alight by opposing fans, the conversation came up in 1983/4? when we were dishing out some stick to a bloke called Nigel Batch who was keeper for Grimsby, he also mentioned going to the Den between the wars when they played Spurs once and seeing dockers sorting out labour disputes with those big steeverdore hooks on the terraces, he never went back!

    You may mock, but I've heard that Len Glover was a bit of a tasty geezer back in the day - he could regularly be seen slapping northerners at Charlton station and leading the charge at away games.

    He's mellowed now, of course, but the "old" Len still comes out occasionally for the big games. For example, I saw him going crackers at Operation Ewood when he thought someone had nicked his sudoku book. Blood was very nearly spilt, until he found it again under his blanket.

    Trifle with the LG at your peril.
