    Who's the most over-rated player to have played for SUFC?

    I remember Alf Smirk once telling me that he couln't understand how Bobby Kellard or Ray Smith had ever made the grade as professional footballers. So who's your choice?

"When I were a lad, me mother would send me down to t'corner shop wi' a shilling, and I'd come back wi' five pounds o' potatoes, two loaves o' bread, three pints o' milk, a pound o' cheese, a packet o' tea, an' 'alf a dozen eggs. Yer can't do...

    Statue of Ramsey to be unveiled at Wembley

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/internationals/8347830.stm Actually on closer inspection, I think it might be supposed to be the World Cup winning manager, Sir Alf, rather than statuesque "defender" Chris. Apologies for any confusion.

    Newcastle United have no manager, an owner that doesn't want them, a vastly inflated wage bill and a squad on the verge of mutiny, yet that was all put into perspective this morning with the news that Sir Bobby Robson passed away. He was 76. A true icon of the game, his playing success was...
