Gone for a seven. He was terrifyingly good at his peak in a way that only a very elite few players ever reached. Fell off a cliff more than any player I can remember though tbh. Just utterly finished overnight. Very odd.
Would enjoy a forthcoming series of
’ Strikers oilball Chelsea ruined’ (or came to the club already knacked)
Mutu and kezman too maybe, but dunno if they were ever any good
Crespo wasn’t that bad for us tbf iirc
Ruining Tories is a community service

love how much puyol used to shake his head when he ran
The David Gray of football.
