Unfortunately, I don't have access to much football on the box, I don't pay for live sports channels. I had to look up several of the matches mentioned above. Quite some legendary stuff, some of which I remember.

Though I must have watched hundreds of matches live, few spring to mind as great. EURO 2004 Netherlands 2 - 3 Republic Czech I remember vividly. And of course EURO 1988 West Germany 1 – 2 Netherlands: great match, wonderful Van Basten clincher, old scores settled...

I've watched several great Feyenoord matches in De Kuip, but I plead guilty to partiality.

Hein

Spain vs Yugoslavia in Euro 2000 was incredible, probably the best international match I've seen and may ever see


To tie it back into current affairs, Mr Guardiola played that day. Looks as if he'll be taking some time off after this season

Oh, and of course: Feyenoord 2 – 1 (a.e.t.) Celtic, 1970 European Cup, their finest hour. First final I was allowed to watch on TV.

Given the way John Terry thinks all the teams WAGs are fair game, there's a chance we only need him to get it for it to become a Chelsea epidemic....... not sure how Ashley Cole will get it, so let's hope he gets a ripped sphincter.
I'm sure I could pick 10 names for 2013:

Maggie Thatcher, Hugo Chavez, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Prince Philip, George Bush Sr, Wilfred Benitez, Blake Fielder-Civil, Steve Gleason, Kirk Douglas, Nelson Mandela.

Meanwhile, Carlisle's marginal play-off hopes crashed and burned in a lacklustre game at Oldham whilst Stevenage cruised to victory and the final play-off place. All of which means with the addition of Portsmouth, Crawley and Swindon to League One next year and the possible addition of Southend or Cheltenham once the League Two play-offs are finished, and the certain failure of at least one of MK Dons or Stevenage to escape League One that still holds Leyton Orient, Brentford and Bournemouth.....anyway the increased bill for overnight stays and coach miles might blunt another promotion push.

Not that the exiled supporters in the London Branch will be complaining! Carlisle should consider negotiating an away supporters season ticket with southern clubs.

Speaking as a Torquay fan, hopefully we can add to that, although with our form of late and Swindon helpfully tapping up our key player in public, I very much doubt it

Exit Alex McLeish, who's next to lose their manager? Could it be Carlisle, not sacked but possibly poached by Hull City.

Stevenage Borough duly dumped from the League One play-offs and MK Dons needing a miracle to over-turn Huddersfield's two goal lead (earned at MK Dons' ground) in the other semi-final. I predict next season will be a busy one for Cumbrian coach companies at exiled Carlisle supporters in the south.

MK Dons stuck in the third tier for another term, very southern league in prospect, doubtless the thought of the travel bills facing the losing team will spur on Huddersfield and Sheffield United at Wembley in a few days time.

Apparently Manchester United have had the worst season in their entire history with regard to injuries.

I think 1958 might have been their worst.

Almost certainly Blackburn. In fact, there's talk it may have already happened. And let's face it, that's not particularly surprising, is it?

Stolen from another website I frequent

80's group The Buggles have revealed that they will re-release their hit, but it will have a new title of BDO KILLED THE RANGERS FIVE STARS! I've managed to obtain a copy of the lyrics...


I heard it on the wireless
back in February...
Gers in administration,
Dearie, dearie me..
they even asked their fans
to lend them 50p!!..

Oh-ah, oh!!

They've still to find out if they used an EBT.
They owe their creditors
from the west coast to Dundee
They even made the news upon the BBC

Oh-ah, oh-ah!!

More than once,
we tried to tell them..
now they're shitting bricks,
now you can smell them!!

BDO killed the rangers 5 stars!!..
BDO killed the rangers 5 stars!!

Hector came and kicked their arse!!
Duff and Phelps - oh, what a farce!!
Maybe there's a league on Mars!!

Oh,oh!!..
Nae merr 5 stars!!
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.
