    George Best: All by Himself

    Probably the most talented player ever produced in the British Isles. Sad to see the cheeky smiling young lad from Belfast end up the way he did. Like Maradona unable to cope with the enormous pressure of stardom, lacking family close to him and at a young age having achieved all he wanted to do. Staggeringly skilled. Just a pity his career was so curtailed and what he might have achieved had he stayed on the straight and narrow but just could not.

    Two football related series on Netflix that are brilliant watches are 'The English Game' and 'Sunderland 'Til I Die'. Both come with a lot of perspective about the game.

    Aidy inspiring the team to unimagined heights. Three hours of memories. :)

    05/06 was one of my favourite seasons. I think more so as we were tipped for relegation having only just avoided it in 04/05. The trip to Cardiff was one of my all time top matches that I've been to.

    There's so much in this. Boothroyd's first fans forum which I'd never seen before is about half way through.

    Do you know what, I was delighted to hear Georgie Best full of praise for Watford, the fact he know Jenkins and Blisset makes me happy, and he was fully behind the way we were playing at the time

  21. Just finished watching the full 3hrs over the last 3 days. Great season. What a player Marlon King was at his best.

    Started doing the same yesterday. Some excellent memories and with the turgid turn our form eventually took under Boothroyd, I’d forgotten how excellent some of the stuff we played under him that first season really was. Multiple times I’ve seen goals on there where we work the ball from one side of the park to the other, with multiple passes, before a dangerous cross is swung in for the winger who started the move on the opposite side sneaking in for the finish.

    Or you’ve got the targeted long ball forward for Henderson to flick on for King, or the one where King just takes it down himself, uses his strength and speed to blow past his marker and create havoc by himself.

    As for the man himself, I’d equally forgotten how Aidy didn’t start out as a walking rent-a-quote, but as a passionate, enthusiastic young coach who had that squad energized to achieve well beyond their means.

    Halfway through it at the moment. That team was great, very much better than the sum of its parts.

    Ashley Young was so, so good at 18, hardly surprising he's gone on to have the career he has. His set pieces were phenomenal and really put our current shambolic efforts in context. Ben Foster was terrible for the first few games, conceded lots of poor goals. McNamee was one of my favourite players and this season reminds me why.

    And how many of our goals came from crosses? I miss that kind of football, load up the box full of players and get some people that can deliver a really good ball in. Part of the same issue but I wish there were more strike partnerships in modern football, there was something great about watching King and Henderson strike the fear of god into the centre backs.

    Promotion to the top tier for the first time in the club's history. God giving a forthright, robust defence of the style of play. It is a simple game decrying Motty. GT was too much of a gentleman to savage Motty as Cloughie once did. Both made the same pertinent points.

    Ours probably won't get picked then as all the top teams will have more votes.

    They should show the last 20 minutes and extra time ?

    They only add games like ours to make it seem 'fair', no chance our total 25k worldwide supporters will make a dent in the voting. Was Deulofeu's goal even goal of the season last season?

    I can honestly say I don't remember any of the other games listed. I can just about remember a goal in the Chelsea Spurs one but that is all.

    There were better ones in the 90s.

    Palace v Liverpool and Chesterfield v Middlesbrough.

    It won with 25% of the vote. I hope its some build up, half time and post match rather than just 120 minutes of football.
