Re: Diego Maradona

Does Thierry Henry come into the same category as Diego? He also tainted his reputation by deliberately cheating against Ireland Ah :D The Terry Enry question. Obviously his one off multiple handball was a very devious offence but I think he did it kind of "off the cuff" so to speak. Maradona on th...

Re: Diego Maradona

As brilliant a footballer as Maradona was, I was actually more saddened by the news about Papa Bouba Diop to be honest. 42's no age (I'm not far off that myself) and, I mean, the name and nickname alone are superb, but throw in that goal against France in 2002 and some classic Kammy and that's a pro...

Re: Away to Bristol rovers

Missed out on a home tie against Sheffield United. Marine v Spurs. Romance of the cup, jumpers for goalposts, John Motson's sheepskin coat, Ronnie Radford - shirt too small. Isn't it? Marvellous. Small boys sat on a wall, a couple of chairs pulled up by the side of the pitch, a header, a dive, an o...

They missed a trick not roping in James Alexander Gordon to go through them.
I'm not sure they did to be fair - I don't think he gets much work these days.

Re: Team v BPA

I'd love us to sign a left-footed winger in the Richard Hodgson mould or a right-footed one who's comfortable going down the outside (like a Neil Heaney or Franz Burgmeier) as another option for when we're struggling to break down teams. Players who are neither tricky nor pacy, don't like to hug the...

Re: Team v BPA

Personally, I don't see why we can't go full tilt in both games and I've no doubts that Alun will have that mindset too. How many times have we seen managers trying to be too clever/preemptive in the league game before a big cup tie and end up losing both? I think it would be counterproductive to re...

Billy Heath's still foaming at the mouth at the way they lost to Leamington 4-3 after being 3-0 up at half-time.

Re: Guiseley v Darlington

So Guiseley will either be refreshed or ring rusty as it will be 3 weeks since their last game. They were really ring-rusty as it turned out, whereas we looked properly match sharp. No Kaine Felix was a bonus too. I thought their pitch looked very bobbly considering how little football's been playe...

Re: Has anyone played for DFC and scored for England?

There seem to have been a lot of one-cap wonders like Nick Pickering down the years, but 'uddersfield legend, George 'Bomber' Brown scored 5 in 9 for England before eventually finishing his career as player-manager at Darlo.

He's the only one I've been able to find though.
