The Hand of God 30 years on was shown last night on ITV. 

 

Butcher, Sansom, Hoddle, Shilton, Hodge and Lineker on it. Hoddle and Lineker were ok and have let it go but the other three are still bitter as fuck about it, Hodge was ok. They also come across as proper Ingerland fans. Lineker asked if anyone watched the final and Butcher said "West Germany V the Argies, that's as bad as it can get for an Englishman". Butcher also mentioned the drugs test after the game saying he made sure Maradona admitted to the handball because he would have killed him otherwise. 

 

Shilton moaning that Steve Hodge swooped shirts with him and should have punched him instead. Gabriel Clarke said "That shirt is worth 300 grand you know" and Shilton had a face on. 

 

Probably be a lot more now!

Danny Kelly was saying he hosted a nightly 2002 World Cup show on the BBC, and Hodge was a guest. Hodge turned up with the shirt in a Tesco carrier bag, apparently having no clue of its value. Kelly sent someone out to buy a flight case for it.

Maradona’s every touch in the 1986 World Cup. It’s remarkable stuff.

This is the clip. Any young lads who didn't see him watch this. 

 

Total warrior. Only way to stop him was to go through him.

Another thing I love about Diego he has literally no affiliation with Barcelona even though he was there for two seasons. I’ve not heard a peep from those more than a club cunts. 

In his book he said he was more Real Madrid. Definitely going out of his way to stick it to them!

 

One of the great German players (Breitner?) invited him and Schuster to his testimonial and Barca wouldn't let them go ao they smashed up the boardroom. 

 

Think he hates the fuckers.

he had absolutely everything, pace, skill, intelligence, could track back ride a challenge and just got on with it despite getting thr shit kicked out of him. All while been on it as well. 

 

Simply the hreatest player to ever live. Imagine how good he would be today with thr sports science and the way players are looked after these days.

Why do people make shit up?

 

No one has died (yet anyway). The main worker has been fired is all that’s happened.

It's like he's playing a different sport to everybody else. Just magnificent.

A lot of collective amnesia around England's braveheart cloggers booting Maradona around the place during the first half of that quarter final. 

Watched a video the other day of all the snide challenges England's players did on Maradona in that game. "Booting" is generous. Elbows, shoulders and knees were used too. But, it's not cheating to try and physically diminish your opponents star player by way of thuggery...

Wow what a video. I found myself getting angry at them no mark cunts from Korea. They could have ended everything before it happened and they had more right being on the pitch as him.

Watched the documentary again just then on Ch4. It really is fantastic.

 

Just feel really sad now though. He was no angel like, but some of the shit he had to deal with when he was in Italy is like nothing any footballer before or since ever had to endure.

Ah, the old “no angel” chestnut, the go to euphemism used  throughout the ages for people trying to justify the actions of  a steaming psycho, see also “he had his problems”

    • It was the gimp, I think. 
    • They’re really milking this deal. 
    • I know there’s no time for two club cunts on here but Sporting just need 4 points to clinch the Premeira. Three years ago they were known as the worst run club in world football, when their president paid supporters to attack players at the training ground. Just goes to show anything is possible and you are never as far away as you think. All done on a shoestring budget, with a rookie manager and a bunch of punk kids. Big Seb Coates finally came good.
    • The irony is that almost every other club would kill to be in the position that City and Chelsea are in.
      Everton would be top of that list, yet proudly spout about how they “called out” the breakaway six and spoke for every other club when they called for sanctions against them. The purpose of those sanctions were to allow themselves to be bumped into a position where they could “qualify” for a European place that they hadn’t actually earned as much as anything else and to claim differently is basically a lie.
      West Ham, Brighton and Crystal Palace, with rent-a-quote chairman Steve Parrish, again pontificating about how these teams should be brought to book, yet wanting to null and void last season to protect themselves against possible relegation whilst saying it was morally wrong to play on given lives were being lost. They refuse to see that in applauding City and Chelsea for breaking away, and back into the Premier League, all that is guaranteeing is they strengthen those clubs with Oligarchs or Oil States as owners to continue dominating every competition they are in, effectively taking the competitiveness away from those very same competitions!
      The ESL wasn’t handled very well in its timing or proposed implementation, but the general idea that it would possibly limit the massive money teams and allow others to challenge them was a sound one, but the blinkers were on from the time the announcement was made and the “little 14”, as opposed to the “big 6”, basically decided to hold onto what they had rather than what they might have had. It won’t go away though and they must know that, even if the current voting regulations in the Premier League give them the whip hand, and effectively a veto, for anything the top teams might want to bring in. A quick look at who has won the major prizes in European competition and domestic leagues over the past few seasons will show them why the current system needs changes to be made. They’re all hypocrites though, and will bury their collective heads in the sand while the really big boys dry bum them.
