A Long Un A Week !

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Lets make our way to the Cottage
To see that Johnny Haynes
Jimmy Hill say he’s worth a long un a week *
That’s an awful lot of change !



Here he is folks the first hundred pound a week footballer in England and he got the same money in the close season as well if my memory serves me well ! Good old Jimmy Hill sanctioned the pay rise as I recall.

2 tickets in the away end at the Bridge will now cost you the same !

A long un !

A long un is cockney slang for a hundred of something.
