Can anyone find me a copy of the infamous Sun mockup of Graham Taylor as a turnip? I find loads of references to it on Google but not the actual picture.
(By way of explanation, Graham Taylor was the England football manager in the early 90’s. They lost a crucial game to Sweden and the headline in the Sun newspaper was “Swedes 2 - England 1” with a mock-up of Taylor’s head as a turnip. This was the beginning of the end of Taylor’s career as England manager.
Oh, and in the UK “swede” is a root vegetable similar to a turnip.)
Welcome to the boards! Hope you stick around. In terms of this thread, unfortunately it’s over 18 years old, and the user who posted it hasn’t been active here since 2013, so it’s unlikely they’ll see your reply.
Damn not me, I wish. I couldn’t tell you mich else that happened in 1992-3 (I think I did my GCSEs?) But there is apparently a special section of my brain for international England football failures, including names of salient players, managers and years.
