    One of the few names I can remember while I was a youngin' growing up:

    Karl-Heinz Granitza.

    For whatever reason him and Willy Roy are the only two names that have stuck in my head.

    Mike was Tim's younger brother. Played a couple seasons, he was a pretty good indoor defender. He was one of my buddies' favorite player.

    Hey, how about that Franz Mathieu? Didn't der Shting also have a English goalkeeper? Then there was that Argentenian guy, what was his name?

    Man, this brings back memories of being a kid and turning on network TV (ABC) for the NASL game of the week! I'm trying to remember now, how did the matches manage to have commercials???

    The English guy was Phil Parkes, he was let go during the 81 season and replaced by Dieter Ferner.

    The Argentenian guy was Pato Margetic.

    How can you guys forget Derek Spaulding? He was my favorite and my first soccer crush!

    Actually he was a Croatian who was born in Argentina. I had the pleasure of playing on a outdoor soccer team when I was 19 for a Croatian team which consisted of Pato Margetic as our midfielder. It was so cool. he was only 32 then so he was still a playa playa.
