If so, please let us know and we will be happy to share them with the world!
I was staying in a hotel in Gibraltar when the Fulham side who had just lost the final turned up. Viv was a nice man and had a lot of time for a 14 year old me.
My dad, Ronald Turner (now deceased) used to take us to watch Wycombe Wanders and personally knew Viv Busby and Martin Busby. I remember Viv babysitting us when we were very young. I believe he brought a girlfriend with him, but cannot quite remember.
I'm trying to find out if any other people recall Viv's solo goal against Cardiff in August 1974. I still regard this as the best goal I've ever seen and just wonder what others may think and especially Viv if anyone is contact with him.
Was delighted to have a few drinks with Viv in Mojaca Sept. 2019. He was in fine spirits and tells a good tale.
Viv or Buzzer as we called him was an inspiration to me, christened me H which has stuck and he coached our adult team and took trading at Elstow school, I went on thru him to get all my coaching badges, a true gentleman, liked a beer and was a good singer too! Oh and he wasnâ€™t bad at football but he was a top class athlete!
Viv is 70 years old today and retired to Spain 6 years ago with his partner Barb Wilde, happy 70th birthday Viv x
Used flip an old penny in the air and catch it on his foot, flip it again and catch it on his knee. Flip it again and catch it on the back of his neck. Finally flip it again and catch it in the top pocket of his jacket.
Viv lived in the same village as me, Wilstead in Bedforshire, while he was at Luton. He used to help train our village team and youth teams, giving up his own free time to do so. I remember him being really encouraging and totally down to earth. I also remember my little sister being very taken with his apparently â€˜sexy smileâ€™. I now live in the States, so have no idea how heâ€™s doing. Hopefully living happily in retirement!
Played with Viv for High Wycombe Polish Club in 1967 before he turned pro. Was also at the same school as Viv and played against him when he was in Wycombe Wanderers reserves. Lovely guy and very brave with what he has had to fight. Hope you are enjoying life in the sun.
