Old Has-Beens,        
                we get better every year
'Is football playing
Along the river shore,
With lads to chase the leather,
Now I stand up no more?'
Ay, the ball is flying,
The lads play heart and soul ...

From: "Is my team ploughing..."
A. E. Housman (1859-1936)

The original cast of many of the 1961 team. Reading the names, looking long at the picture, the backdrop of the stadium wall, sunshine on the bright young faces - what comes to mind is: "yours is the earth and everything that's in it."

Has-Beens.com is devoted to the preservation of old team* images and the oft told tall tales so frequently repeated by team members and friends. Visitors to these pages are invited to contribute pictures and text of their own. It is hoped that the site will serve to connect and re-connect people associated with teams from past decades. We welcome all contributions in keeping with the theme of teams or groups of yesteryear, i.e. "has-beens"**.

* any type of group is acceptable, as "team" is loosly defined.       ** Really, it's a term of endearment!
