Nice One Cyril

I still enjoy the song "Nice One Cyril" which is a song dedicated to the English footballer Cyril Knowles, who was the left back played Tottenham Football Club. The single performed by Cockerel Chorus written by Harold Spiro and Helen Clarke. The song was released before the 1973 Football League Cup Final where Tottenham played Norwich City. where it reached No. 14 on the British single chart after Tottenham's victory. The song writers received an Ivor Novello Award, named after the famous Welsh composer and actor, for Best Novel or Unusual Song in 1974.
Here, listen the song...

I am currently working on a few projects on religious terrorism and the law enforcement strategies. Which includes developing a manual for hostage negotiators in dealing with religious terrorists, which not only encompass barricaded situations and crisis intervention but post crisis management too.
