The Son Of Pele

Post by Quakerz » Fri Nov 16, 2012 9:29 pm

Tell you what, we've had some brilliant players - came across this video on Twitter earlier on, Martin "Son Of Pele" Smith...

The Lewes and Mansfield goals are just unbelievable. What a bloody player. The Stockport one's not half decent either.

Now, who has all Hignett's goals to hand, as he was a bloody star and all.

Wasn't too struck on Petta mind even with his hat.

Compiled by Neil Wainwright I believe?

There's something great about a video collection of goals set to music. Even if it's Snow Patrol.

Martin Smith was a class act. That goal at Lewes was ridiculous. The best thing about it is how nonchalant he is about the whole thing, even though taking the ball down like that and spanking it in the top corner all in one motion is something most players on the pitch that day could only dream about.

I was going to say 'the good old days', but they weren't really.

I do miss it though!!

As I said on Twitter at the time, if only we'd got him a couple of seasons earlier. Fantastic talent.

I was recalling the other day that time SoP and Josh Law destroyed us at The Arena whilst with Northampton.

We will be playing at the arena again next season - fact.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

Just has nothing to do with the club today. We need to be moving forward not looking back at the time.

I agree, we need to be looking forward, but the memories and past are the history of this club and part of why wei follow this team. If we'd wanted to forget the past we could have formed a pheonix club!

But time is a man-made concept. There is no past, no future, just one eternal now.
Nothing is off topic if it relates to DFC.
