    • ...and how could anyone forget 'mock, flock and two mouldering brain cells' 'star' Vinnie 'what's football? I just kick people' Jones and his team of 'd' listers.

      Maybe there's another thread in that:
      Players you wouldn't want to meet down a dark alley
      or to rephrase that, players that should never have donned a pair of boots.......

      • i try to have an appreciation of players over teams......its not easy when your appreciations tend to leave and play for other clubs on a regular basis........such is the curse of being a west ham supporter.........hohum.............................................................

        what about Billy Bremner.....that man wouldnt even be allowed in the crowd nowdays.................

        all the best

    • A gentleman footballer is a guy confident of his ability at any level. Who knows what he can or can't do, and doesn't need to resort to underhand tactics to establish himself.
      Many so called famous players come and go, Ronaldo, Rooney, people like that. But the class acts stand alone, over the waters a good example Maldini.
      Back on home ground I always smile when thinking of my personal role model--Mr Bobby Moore.

      • Perhaps what this thread highlights is the fact that 30 years ago any top team probably had 10 players that knew how to be a Gentleman and one maverick (Bremner, Hunter, Tommy Smith etc) whilst now its the other way around.

        Go back further than that and the players wouldn't let one team member be out of order. It was about sportmanship and not about winning at all costs or money.

        Greed, over-paid, over-rated, low intelligence and poor education are all to blame. Such a shame isn't it!
