Moments of sporting excellence from bad/mediocre sportspeople

Enjoy this so much more than when a world class athlete does something world class - yeah well done mate that’s your job.

My pick:

(Rocky’s freekick specifically but arguably the entire game could qualify)

The story behind that game is really interesting. Without wanting to take anything away from Boro, the City players lost heavily on purpose in protest against the owner for sacking the manager.

Always liked this one

Not as good as I’d remembered

Yeah youre right actually

some great commentary in just a short clip too

“the man they call the Scottish Cafu - and that’s exactly why”
“well he’s an unsung hero, but today I’m going to tell you loud and clear - he’s a hero”

Birmingham vs Villa games are always entertaining. The Enckleman thing, Geoff Horsfield going in net, Dublin and Joey Gudjonsson both getting sent off for trying to do Savage, the Hutton goal, the Grealish incident, JT letting some guy get himself sent off, Cahill’s scissor kick. Great stuff

I think there must (rightly) have been a press embargo in Teesside preventing the publication of that context because I don’t think I’ve ever heard that before. is there an article or something about it?
