Tony Currie Career


Currie, a gifted schoolboy footballer who appeared for Hendon Boys before joining Queens Park Rangers as an amateur, while working for a building company, was a natural schoolboy footballer. He joined Chelsea as an apprentice but was let go and complete his apprenticeship at Watford, receiving England Youth Award recognition for the process. He made his league debut in May 1967 and made his league debut the following season.

On February 1, 1968, he was transferred to Sheffield United for £26,500. On February 26, he scored on his debut against Tottenham Hotspur with a header, but he missed the next game on March 2nd because it was his wedding day. In his time at Bramall Lane, the 'TC' or 'Top Cat,' as he was referred to by Sheffield United supporters, was idolized. ges him to score 54 goals in 313 appearances and was also named captain by Ken Furphy in March 1974. He was named Sheffield United's Best Ever Player in September 2014 as part of the club's 125th Anniversary celebrations.

In June 1976, he joined Leeds United for £250,000, making his Leeds debut in a 2–2 draw with West Bromwich Albion. He was a definite favorite at Leeds, where he played in 124 games and scored 16 goals. During United's 4–0 home win over Southampton F.C. in November 1978, his curling shot was fired during the United States' 5–0 victory. This year, ITV's The Big Match Goal of the Season took first place. In 1978 and 1979, Currie's form helped Leeds reach the League Cup semi-finals, and in the 1978-79 season, Leeds finished fifth to qualify for the UEFA Cup for the third time. In August 1979, his wife became homesick for London, resulting in his sale to Queens Park Rangers.

Currie captained Rangers in the 1982 FA Cup Final replay, though he forfeited the penalty from which Glenn Hoddle scored the winning goal. His career was hampered by injuries, and after five goals in 81 games, he dropped out of league football and into semi-retirement from the game. On his return to the United Kingdom, he travelled to Canada and spent two months with the Toronto Nationals. He continued his football career with Southend United on non-contractual terms until being asked by David Webb to join Torquay United in February 1984. In 16 games for the Gulls, he scored once.

In October 1984, he joined Tranmere Rovers but was left without a single appearance in the team's first team, leaving him with 81 goals in 528 league games. He began playing for Dunstable Town, Hendon, and Goole Town before being appointed Football in the Community co-ordinator at Sheffield United in February 1988, a position he still holds today.

He broke into the England squad during his time at Sheffield United, winning the first of his 17 caps in 1972. When he was at Leeds, he was capped 11 times.

In 1973, he appeared in a World Cup qualifier against Poland, which was played at Wembley Stadium. England dominated the match, but unfortunately, she was only able to draw 1–1 and failed to qualify.


Farewell Stan the Man! Bowles, the greatest maverick No. 2 in QPR, was the ultimate maverick No. 1. It's sad that ten out of his high-end old life was stifled by Alzheimer's curse, February 24, 2024
JEFF POWELL: In the days of yore, young football reporters would gather for a beer before Saturday's matches at QPR's Loftus Road ground. After popping into the corner store to buy a packet of fags, Stan The Man would briskly into the King's Tavern in South Africa Road about half an hour before the game's 3 p.m. He'll try luck down his pint, and then stop at the nearby betting store to place his bets for the day's races. He'll make it to the home dressing room too late for the manager's team's discussion, but he's got to take off his boots and run last out of the tunnel just in time. The crowd erupted in applause as the crowd erupted in raucous of applause.

MATT BARLOW: Rotherham's memory club is a ray of sunshine for ex-players with dementia like Dave Watson; the club is a shining example of why it's not impossible for football's officials to support aging, August 20, 2023
MATT BARLOW: Dave Watson's time at Rotherham United is not well known. He rose to fame as a fearless centre half, winning the FA Cup with Sunderland and the League Cup with Manchester City, and winning the England Cup with Manchester City, and collecting 65 England caps in eight years. Oricum, Rotherham also rate him as one of the best players to ever play. They signed him for next to nothing from Notts County in 1967, a time when he appeared occasionally as a striker, sold him three years later for £100,000 and have re-embraced him during his years of illness. Watson, who is 76, is a regular at the Millers Memory Club, a monthly gathering for ex-players organized and hosted by John Breckin, a club legend and honorary life president, and a member of the United Kingdom's.

On the day of Diana's death, Richard Branson made sure rugby league was the only sport played in the United Kingdom, August 31, 2022
Princess Diana's (right) tragic death in 1997 brought the entire nation Kingdom into mourning, and only one sporting match was allowed to be played in the aftermath: a Super League game (inset) starring Australian NRL stars organised by Sir Richard Branson (pictured left with Diana). Her death stunned the world when the beloved Royal figure died in a car crash in Paris on August 31, 1997; one of the first British government's first moves was to call off all sporting clashes that day.
