There is a new documentary about Bobby Moore on Sky.

Incredibly, he was diagnosed with testicular cancer in late 1964 and appeared in the Cup Winners Cup final less than six months after surgery to remove one testicle. I didn't know that.

Interestingly, footage shows that a German player handled the ball in the box when they equalised in the last minute of the World Cup final. If they had had VAR in those days it is almost certain that it would have been disallowed and we would have been denied the most iconic piece of commentary of all time.

What a fantastic player he was. We see some of his amazing tackles against Brasil in 1970. Unbelievable stuff.  Also, in the last minute of the 66 final, he calmly chests the ball down in his own box, takes the ball out and then delivers an inch perfect long pass to Hurst for the fourth goal.

A true footballing legend.

VAR? Russian linesmen are much more reliable.

One story was that Bobby used to love a night out but only ever used to drink halves as he didn’t want to be labelled as a drinker.

I can remember him playing at Blundell Park in the League Cup with Peters and Hurst. Matt Tees rose head and shoulders above him to head it into the net.
Saw him play a few times, he was a magnet for the ball. So elegant you never saw him panic.  A modern day defender playing 50 years ahead of his time.

Yeah it was the “down the local ad” with Hurst & Peter’s if I recall right.

If they did the same now it could feature the deep fried burger menu, Sunday lunch with frozen Yorkshire puddings, sh1tty over priced lager, badly pulled Guineas and the opportunity to buy Charlie & knock off steak.

Which pub would this be exactly?

Asking for a friend 😉


The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'
