An Antiques Collector Pablo Perez from Valencia came across this Barca pennant from 1937.
It's from a Mediterranean League game from 1937 during the SCW against Levante which Barca won 2-1.
Patrick and Barca won the league which Barca see as a La Liga title.

The pennant was presented to FC Barcelona recently and now sits in the Camp Nou museum.
It's the oldest pennant on display in the Camp Nou museum now.

At ease gentlemen... a little bit of light reading...                            
The story of Isidro Lángara signed by Patrick while at Oviedo as an 18 year old..went on to win the Pichichi award three years in a row and broke all sorts of La Liga records.

Wrote this for the Guardian's BTLM today link below... the greatest striker you never heard of.

Thanks for posting - I love reading that kind of thing.

Meanwhile, veering away from PO'C, but staying on the theme of "the greatest striker you never heard of", I was in Cadiz last year and had to take a look at Cadiz CF's stadium (no game on). The club shop window was full of stuff on their greatest ever player, Jorge "El Magico" Gonzales:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%C3%A1gico_Gonz%C3%A1lez

It seems that when you add his lifestyle choices to his outrageous skill, you could call him "The Salvadorean George Best"!

And Maradona says he was one of the top ten players he's ever seen, who could do things even he (DM) couldn't do.

Cheers.

Yeah there seems to be a lot of forgotten heroes, look at Charlie O'Hagan from Donegal who was around at the start for Sevilla CF.

Was talking to a chap from United yesterday while writing this piece https://thefootballfaithful.com/jack-charltons-last-days-of-champagne-supernova/
and he mentioned Adrian Doherty from Strabane apparently as good as 'Best' they reckoned when he was at United.

Cadiz BTW is a lovely part of Spain... God help them at the moment in Spain.

I really enjoyed that, thanks. Just one query about Di Stefano; I am fairly certain he only played in Argentina, Colombia and Spain and therefore could only have achieved a goalscoring title on two continents.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Doherty came through the same time as Giggs and by all accounts every bit as good if not better. Injuries ended him. A bit of an eccentric character by all accounts not your typical footballer. Think it was Oliver Kay done a book about him 'Forever Young', definitely worth a read.

Yeah, the book has been pretty well received.

Is Doherty the guy that drowned in a Dutch canal or something like that? 
It would damage this forums' reputation
