Hate to say it.... but that moment started the ball rolling.... we haven't quite been the same since!Not so much brain fart more absolute fucking melt down. Maybe brainshart?
I'm glad I'm not Brazilian too!Jesus. I remember Gomes being terrible. But watching that, he was even worse than I remember
How good was Waddle in 88-89 ? The man in no way looked healthy, ran like he couldn’t run, had a hair cut to shame his parents and yet that season & generally he was absolutely brilliant.All the above, plus selling Waddle just after signing Lineker - like buying the best snooker cue, then selling the table!!
So typical of us - sometimes a player takes a while to settle then when he comes good, he's off!How good was Waddle in 87-88 ? The man in no way looked healthy, ran like he couldn’t run, had a hair cut to shame his parents and yet that season & generally he was absolutely brilliant.
A few of us were so upset he was sold that we crowded around our home phone and rang the club up. I remember saying “we are calling to discuss the Waddle transfer” and some Secretary transferred us through to some fella ! As soon as he said “hello, so and so speaking” the phone went crashing down in panic.
