Not a player and only a tenuous connection with Town but anyway... Roger Malone is still alive and now lives in Florida (for half of the year).  In the photo (from 2017), he appears to be standing next to the deceased Charlton Heston

"Legendary" and "famous".  Huh? And still alive, which is disappointing.

Flashbacks to HTV, Bruce Hockin and the Roger Malone chant by the Town End.

We did rule the West Country and probably not even Reg contemplated that we would one day be visiting former non-league clubs on a regular basis for the main local derbies.

I was interviewed by Roger Malone 3 times for HTV back in the 80s and TBF he was a really nice bloke, he just loved Bristol though!

His commentary on the 1990 Play Final is a thing of cringe worthy beauty.

A couple of the Sunderland squad had played for Bristol City, which he was pretty excited about, and the looming decision about the Financial Irregularities was a great source of material for him.  He does get rather swept along by just how good we were that day though.

A fantastic piece   of commentating even got a self congratulatory style smirk in the voice when he comes up with "Owers before Foley, seconds before Foley".

Having him do commentary/analysis on a game with the Bristol ref Roger Milford in charge was always fun.

Can someone remind me again what a dof does? I forget.  And in the case of Morecambe, what would he do that Jim Bentley doesn't already?

In charge of scouting, transfers, player contracts. Basically just taking work off the manager and giving it to someone else.

Usually a DoF is a direct connection between Manager and Chairman, the manager speaks to the DoF about what type of player he wants and the DoF finds and scouts the players also usually dealing with all contracts, but that can vary from club to club. Also the DoF has an input in tactics and is there for advice if the manager needs it letting the manager to get on with coaching.

Director of football basically does all the ‘non-coaching’ stuff a typical British manager would have done about 20 years ago

Thinking back to the early 90's my view was always that the issue with English football was not enough of our players going abroad, not a worry about too many coming to our leagues.  The money in the Premier League has complicated that a little since, but I still feel we'd do better with more exposure to foreign leagues.
