Only just got around to watching 'Diego Maradona'. Absolutely brilliant. Love seeing old footage, especially simple things like him in personal training, stuff we probably wouldn't ordinarily see.
His life in Naples must have been crazy from the moment he stepped off the plane.
I think he's my favourite player of all time.
It’s brilliant - loved it - thought I was.quite clued up on wor Diego but this added a few extra details to my memory bank - shame they turned on him after 1990
They way they turned on him after 1990 was ridiculous. He was playing for his country FFS. What's he meant to do, miss on purpose? :lol:

I thought the way they framed that was strange.  Fair enough if that's really the reason he was turned on, however it seemed to me his main crime was trying to convince Napoli fans to support Argentina in the run-up to the match :lol:

Yeah didn’t understand that - especially from the city of Napoli - let’s just forget what he did in the previous 5 years or so for you - you were a nothing club before he arrived

Thought Ciro Ferrara came out of it well - really liked him when he was at Juve

Neapolitans did not turn on him - I think that bit was badly portrayed in the documentary. He's obviously still deified to this day.
Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.
God man replacement's don't have to 100% of best to 100% of a replacement.
The are both white, both intellects, both middle class, both the typical 'people who would have thought could never do such a thing ', all traits of a Psychopath.

I recall at the time they turned on him.

Gary Lineker presents highlights from three classic Premier League matches, as chosen by some of the regular expert analysts that appear on the show. This week's selection includes the memorable encounter from April 1996 between Liverpool and Newcastle United at Anfield, as chosen by Alan Shearer

Shame Shearer couldn't pick a game we didn't lose

Did Linekar say he thought that was Aprilla's last goal for us in the first Liverpool 4-3, or did I mishear?

On the BBC Iplayer is a MOTD World Cup rewind.5 cracking games from the past with the added bonus of David Coleman commentary on the Scotland vs Holland 78 game. And David Icke commentating on the last game.
RIP gejon/cajun/ Jon Lockwood.

Proud to have made your acquaintance Sir.

Also on the Iplayer is the Bill Shankly documentary. KK is on it quite often, and it's obvious where Kevin got his manager skills from. Shankly was a genius.
