Default Re: Giggs and Dean - joint inventors of a new approach to football

Last nights game i thoroughly enjoyed, they ran there goolies off pressing all over the pitch against a horrible team that was very street wise. I thought our local lad Nico Williams was class. Giggs had to give youth a chance last night with all the withdrawals and boy did they come up trumps.
Like Bigdave said previously, all the past heartaches. I was at every one of those games with the Joe Jordan hand ball. Drowned our sorrows in a pub on the outskirts of Cardiff full of Scotch.

Maybe he's thinking of the Dave Phillips handball against Scotland at Ninian Park in 1985. The night Jock Stein tragically died of a heart attack.

I think we were 1-0 up and heading to Mexico 1986 until that penalty incident with around 10 minutes left.

Sorry, i put it wrong, yes the faithful hand ball was Anfield. But the Scotch game was the night Jock Stein died and a party of us when down on a minibus. Very early start, refreshments on the bus a few stops on the way down, parked up about a mile from the ground another watering hole. Then another disappointing result, got to this pub on the outskirts after. As soon as we were on our second drink all these jocks piled in.
These people have no excuses to fight, they will fight amongst them selves,so, when one of our party made a not to clever remark about Stein, the place went ballistic.
But i'm here to tell the tail ha.

I was on the kop with three mates and we were surrounded by drunk jocks.
One of my mates was a rugby player and it was his first football match. We did not see any trouble but he said "tonight i have witnessed the depths of human depravity." I do also remember that Leighton James was injured and so Micky Thomas played and he had a blinder. All we got from the jocks around us was "who the f**k is he!!! BTW Dennis Law said that the best team on the night lost. As has been said it is no good playing good football and losing. It is all about winning.
