Remembering Robin Friday, by Guy Fletcher

A body was discovered in a lonely flat, the victim of a drug overdose at the age of only 39. But rewind the film of time: a new Cardiff City player is arrested by the Transport Police for not purchasing a ticket.

Robin was a Hammersmith boy … wild eyes, flowing hair. They don’t make them like that any more!

Although possessing silky skills he is immortalised by a photograph showing him giving a goalkeeper a two-fingered salute after scoring, decades ago.

But he was a “party animal” and his magic sadly declined, the demons came … and unfortunately ruined the show.
