Six decades of Cardiff City v Southampton games.

CoymaySix questions on Southampton v City games, answers tomorrow.

Southampton 3

70’s. Name this player who was with Southampton for a little over a decade and left the club in 1972 – rumours that his surname was the source for the name by which spectacular and ambitious long passes, which usually fail, are often described these days are, I think, wide of the mark.
