On This Day



On This Day… A Broken Record

Written by: George Chittenden : 01 Jul 2019

It was on this day, 9th February, back in 1979 when the football club Nottingham Forest set a new record with Britain's first £1m transfer deal. Manager Brian Clough signed England forward Trevor Francis after eight seasons with Birmingham City.

The total cost to Forest, whose average League gate was 30,000 people totalled £1,180, 000 after the addition of VAT and other sundries. It was a fair bit of dosh back then folks, but we all know that compared to today's records, a million is peanuts.

Manchester United paid an eye-watering £93.25m to Juventus for Paul Pogba.

We promote history by...

offering free articles and videos, providing free history experiences for children in schools and on weekends. Next year we will be visiting hospitals and providing unforgettable experiences to children who really need it and give them a chance to forget their condition, their treatment and their reality. Please join others who support our free projects by giving a small donation. We can only continue our great work with your help.
