Yeah but just to point out, it wasn't the guy that stamped on Scifo who got sent off, was it? It was just some defender instead, for mouthing off at the ref by the looks of it, ha
I stand corrected !
poor Iraqi guy - Ray Wilkins must know how he felt.
Uday Hussein was heavily involved in the Iraq football team.
he forced one player to shave his Kevin Keegan permed hair off.

just watched Devil's Double trailer and read Uday's Wiki.
Uday had Ahmed Radhi beaten up and sent death threats when he refused change clubs.
torturing athletes who lost was the norm.
Lance must be jealous he never thought of that...



Pierino Prati (1946 - 22 June 2020)
a prolific striker with AC Milan in his early career, there he won a string
of major trophies including the 1969 European Cup where Prati scored a hat trick
in a 4-1 win over Ajax in the Final - something no one has done in since.
Prati won 14 caps (7 goals) and played in the 1968 European Champs Final
win over Yugoslavia. he also was in the 1970 World Cup squad but didn't play.

Serie A top scorer 1967-68 (3:40)
why do people insist on putting (appalling) music on football videos ?
turn sound off before you watch

You ever see The Devil's Double about him, it's a fuckin mental film, great watch
My missus used to mind that guys' kids. He was going out with one of the daughters of a Dublin criminal family. Lots of drama. I met him once and he had a gash in his head. He said the woman had slashed him with a knife. Turned out she'd just thrown a plate at him. He was known for being a bit economical with the truth.

Theo Foley (1937 - 26 June 2020)

Former Ireland international and Arsenal assistant manager Theo Foley dies aged 83

Obituary: Theo Foley, the proud Dubliner who dared to dream big (nice Indo tribute)

Inchicore born full back who captained Northampton Town during their unlikely
rise from 4th to 1st Division the 1960's and won 9 caps.

but it's as a coach Theo will be best remembered. he worked with George Graham
at several clubs and was his assistant at Arsenal from 1986-1990 when the club
won a League Cup and 1989 1st Division title at Anfield in the most dramatic finish
to a season ever seen in England
"It's Up For Grabs Now !"
recently a documentary feature film tells the story.

at the time I thought Theo looked like an auld lad but
he looks like a fit middle aged guy in retrospect.
