  1. That’s a fascinating interview, Michael! Hearing Herb talk about keeping Coleman to a single goal and stopping the 100 goals for the season is amazing. I could listen to Herb for hours.

  2. Terrific stuff! Not too many of the boys of ’54 still with us. And doesn’t Herb come across as a bloke you could sit with all afternoon with a cup of tea just listening to his recollections. Go the Tricolours.
