    If you could add 1 bees player ....

    Johnny Brooks. Even more skill than Bowles or Benrahma.

    Jimmy Greaves RIP

    RIP the great Jimmy Greaves, a master goalscorer. I think that one the secrets of his great success was that he always was able to compute how much time he had in which to score. If he had plenty of time, he would take it and not rush, and if he had little time he would be alive to that too...

    Daniel James - which Brentford speed merchant in the past would have caught him up?

    I think Eric 'Rabbit' Parsons would have caught anyone I can think of. Greased lightning with the ball at his feet even. Trouble is, very few of us still remember him. :malcontentoldgitsmiley:

    Losing a THREE Goal lead with 10 minutes to go. A new world record?

    21st December 1957 Old Div 2, Huddersfield were leading Charlton 5-1 at The Valley against 10 men (no subs allowed at that time), with 27 minutes left. Charlton went on to win 7-6 with Johnny Summers scoring five. Only professional team in England to score six and lose. let alone against ten men.

    England - The Ashes 2017/18

    I'm fairly surprised that Anderson didn't punch the sh*t out of Duckett for that liberty. HTF can a fringe player get away with that? The whole thing appears to be a shambles - a bunch of self-entitled pricks doing as they please. Perhaps we should go back to the days of the really tough...

    His brother is supposed to be the quick bowler. I brought up the incident because a **** is a **** is a **** . There is no statute of limitations my mind.

    Quite agree with you Ed, but this bloke has previous for this and other stuff. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2015/dec/10/ecb-disciplinary-craig-overton-abusive-language-somerset-ashar-zaidi-sussex My feeling is that the ECB is pretty tolerant of all sorts of poor behaviour - particularly...

    England - The Ashes 2017/18

    Great to have Overton in the side as he will keep the arsehole ratio up in the absence of Stokes. Has he told Khawaja to go back to "his own f*cking country" yet? Won't be long.

    Funniest goal

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18QsjFUquD8 Mellberg/Enkelman There was another wonderful own goal by a non-league player in the FA Cup a few years ago whilst trying to slash a ball to safety behind his own goal. Seem to remember Hansen and rest nearly pissing themselves. .

    Dennis Hunt

    Too right! Dennis was a really tough defender. Typical full back of his time - none shall pass! Happy birthday to him.
