At least you confirm that game took place! I won't argue about your memory of the score even though I was there.
Gordon probably didn't even try and save the shots! Iirc he was one of the 3 that QPR were going to retain. Nelson, Phillip's & Hawely?

Live in Malpas, Cheshire. Work in Chester. My hear
I too was at Lincoln with Aberdeen Flyer we did loose 2-0,it was baking hot and as the flyer stated the match was suspended for ages whist Lincoln got another set of goal posts from behind their main stand.
Chic stood in the goal and held his hands aloft to show to the referee that the goal was actually much bigger than the one at the other end.He was sheer CLASS.
I was there with my Dad for that Lincoln game. We went up and back on the supporters coach. Remember them bringing the new goal posts on from other side of pitch. It took ages.

One of my great heroes, tarnished somewhat when I overheard a conversation between him and Brian Turner . Brian"A pity we did not win tonight we would have been top of the league " Chic "would we? where are we anyway"

Hi Eric. I haven't read all the replies on this post so apologies if I am repeating anything that has already been said.. I have supported Brentford fc since September 1963 and Chic Brodie is my absolute favourite keeper of all time.. I was about 10 years old when he was in his prime at Griffin Park and I remember playing in goal down the park or in the school playground being 'Chic Brodie'.. It was a real shame how his career ended with 'dog gate'.. Interestingly my son in law, who is from Margate, put a post on Facebook last month that showed the line ups from the Margate versus Tottenham hotspur roundabout 1972/3...and who was in goal for the Margate?.. None other than Chic Brodie 👍.. One of my all time heroes 👌

His trademark as I always used to remember was his going for and catching of crosses and corners such a safe pair of hands and never wore gloves. I remember a picture of him on a programme once (in the days when the only picture appeared on the front cover) taking a cross safely with the caption "Chic Brodie in characteristic style".
