  1. He scored in my first match at Filbert St a 4 - 2 victory over Stoke Dec 2nd 1966.....Sadly I canโ€™t recall it and have never been able to find footage on the web....One fact about this match is that our 4 goals were scored by different nationalities.....Dougan the Irishman ( Northern Irish to be exact) , Rodriguez the Welshman, Sinclair the Scotsman and Nish the Englishman...
  2. Love the guy and watching the part 1 and 2 of all his premier league goals has been great. Two things Iโ€™ve noticed and love are 1/ the number of fantastic goals he gets with what is his first touch....eg lob home to Spurs, similar Bournemouth at home this year, volley against Liverpool and West Brom away that won him goal of the season...honestly canโ€™t think of another striker who score as many one touch worldlys 2/ As discussed in previos threads his goal celebrations and goading of opposition fans are a joy to watch with Palace away this season my favorite ....will miss that when games are behind closed doors ๐Ÿ˜ก
  3. Yes me my daughter and 3 other friends from Ireland were amongst them . Managed to get reasonable spot in the pub at back of hotel right outside the ground to watch it. Loads of Italians in there and yes it got dangerously overcrowded in there when the torrential downpour started and loads who were happy drinking outside earlier tried to get in.....we went to the Away fans turnstiles at end of match hoping to get in to see presentation and lap of honor but some very forceful stewards and Members of Leicestershire constabulary put and end to that ...still a great day that will last long in the memory ...
  4. Four years ago the city of Leicester was invaded...thousands of Italians, Thais, and many other nationalities including a fair few Irish descended on the city to be there for coronation day. One Italian in particular mesmerised us all as he took on over 30,000 chanting singing fans and beat them hands down with his wonderful singing.....the whole world watched in awe as we put on the classiest and best party ever seen for a sporting occasion........what a day of great memories.....Only downside was couldnโ€™t get tickets for the match so had to join thousand of others watching it in local pubs ....๐ŸฆŠ๐ŸฆŠ๐ŸฆŠ๐ŸฆŠ๐ŸฆŠ Oh and we absolutely spanked Everton ๐Ÿ‘
  5. Exactly what I was going to say....Fantastic player but also a really nice easy going guy....As discussed in previous threads he was so willing to chat and pose for photos with kids and adults alike many years ago when the team visited Dublin during the Oโ€™Neill days ...easilly the most approachable and likeable guy in that squad with Elliott,Walshie and Guppy not far behind
  6. Spurs could get well and truly hammered here
  7. Half dozen Spurs defenders standing like statues.....no reaction when first shot wa blocked by Dier.....no desire at all
  8. OMG Sterling really has turned into a terrible player
  9. The whole left hand side of Man City is garbage. Otamendi,Zinchenko and Sterling doing nothing but losing possession. we have to win tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
  10. What a terrible penalty from godson....as bad as Kermos at Cardiff all those years ago ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
  11. Stones Looked Stoned there ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
  12. Was never a corner but crap marking by Villa ....Expect Man City to go into cruise control now
  13. Players are humans not characters in some computer game. Loss of form and confidence snowballs and itโ€™s hard to stop.(20)
  14. Great day ...donโ€™t know how I got thru it though as had virtually no sleep previous 2 nights...Fri night overnight flight from USA to Dublin so grabbed bout 1 hours kip....Sat was my Mum and Dads 50th wedding anniversary so full on all day and party on Sat night...Got to bed at 4.00am Sun up at 6.30 am to get early flight to London......Adrenaline and excitement kept me going for the day....no Red Bull in those days ๐Ÿ˜€ Watching John Aldridge leading Tranmere out reminded me of a charity gig we had in my local golf club couple of years ago .Aldridge was one of the main guests and had agreed to do half hour question and answer session. I met him before it started and told him I was lifelong Leicester fan.....During Q&A session someone asked what wa# his most disappointing moment of his career....his answer was he had to thank someone in the audience who is a Leicester fan for reminding him how devastating it was to lose as a manager in a Cup final...It surpassed all his disappointments as a player ๐ŸฆŠ๐ŸฆŠ
