Ahhh - so that article also explains part of the reason for there being a massive breakdown between the Italian team and the Italian press during the 82 WC. Cheers.

Funnily enough, he was under serious consideration for time's-up (but like I always do, I forgot when it came to actually doing the entry).

He was on my list, but I took him off at the last minute in favour of Michael Parkinson. Not sure why.

The Doc gave me £1 for winning the keepy uppy out of a 100 odd kids, back in 79/80, when my club was invited to a football school day.

He also praised me for scoring a 30 yarder in a match.

See? Not all Scots are as tight as gnats chuffs or miserable cunts.:D

I knew there would be a big death on the last day of the year.In fact there have been at least 2 . Ronald Atkins and now Tommy Docherty. 2020 just keeps taking, or giving, depending  on your point of view..And there are still 7 hours of it to go ! (if you live in the UK like me ) So many legends going ...:(
