about

Two fine footballers from the same era. They both played for Charlton Athletic and they were both midfielders, but that's where the similarities ended.

Mix up, what mix up?

Oh well, we can always blame the students.

RIP Graham

lyrics

Those boys called the tune, they were the engine room
For the team of sixty-nine
Graham had class, played it slow, played it fast
And Alan he was sublime

Scotland was where Alan came from there
While Graham grew up in Wales
Both full of running, both Celtic cousins
And Graham was hard as nails

Graham he had flair with his neat blond hair
But Alan’s was long and dark
Graham was here, he was there, and he was every friggin where
And he’d kick ‘em off the park

He could tackle, he could shoot
With either boot
But Alan he was the star
That’s Alan, Alan Campbell la la la la la la la
Alan, Alan Campbell la la la la la la la

Graham Moore and Alan Campbell
They entertained us and they made us cheer
Graham Moore and Alan Campbell
They were sharp they were keen, the opposing teams
Found them too much of a handful

It was a winters day, and the skies were grey
When I heard about Graham’s demise
All the tackles he made and the games he’d played
That I still memorised

A tribute was arranged for the next home game
Against his local boyhood team,
But some began to laugh at the giant photograph
Of his face upon the screen
It wasn’t Graham Moore, it was Alan Campbell
I’d recognise those features anywhere
Not Graham Moore, it was Alan Campbell
Serves to represent shoddy management
Oh what a shambles

Graham Moore and Alan Campbell
They entertained us and they made us cheer
Graham Moore and Alan Campbell
They were sharp they were keen, the opposing teams
Found them too much of a handful
