    Hello. I was just wondering, here in self isolation land, and I thought, if I could send a team out to play Burnley and give Pep and the boys a game off. You know - the sort of Hough End super sunday league team - non of the passing stuff (which I enjoy), a sort of guilty pleasure.
    Obviously it's 5-3-2 playing Burnley

    GK
    Eric Nixon

    Defence
    Thatcher
    Ewing
    Morrison
    Doyle
    Tiato

    Midfield
    Barton
    De Jong
    The god - Gerry Gow

    Forwards
    Bob Taylor
    Franny Lee

    Subs
    Dickov
    Bellamy
    Vonk
    Roy Paul

    Any suggestions?

    Christ I forgot Negouai - did he finish a game for us?

    Dave Watson might be a good call , in case it gets messy.

    No place for Bradbury? Or Buster Phillips?

    I seem to remember Dennis loved a little bit of physical contact. I watched a bit of the Cup Winners Cup final the other day, on the italian football site that was recommended by a poster. Franny wasn't bothered wether the ball was paricularly near, to start something.

    Yeah. Both lovely blokes, but you didn't take liberties with either. I was told a story about Asa and Malcom that happened in the dressing room, just before Asa left.

    I was struggling for some madmen out on the wing. I could only think of Bellamy. I seem to remember Coleman had an atitude at least.

    Remember Tueart debut v rags 13/03/74. He fucking clattered Alex Forsyth in front of the dug outs in first few minutes. Everyone knew he was going to be money well spent. Went on to headbutt Hartlepool captain in a feisty cup game too.

    I used to work with a Burnley fan many moons back when Gow signed for them . I told him they were getting a great little combative player who would do well for them . I’m sure he got sent off early on in his career for them for a two footed waist high challenge that put the opposition player into the hoardings . I don’t think he ever became a Burnley fans favourite after that .
    As for ASA , I bumped into him in the Mal at the beginning of the year . He looked like he could still last 90 minutes .
    A proper hero of mine .
