Jimmy Greaves is about to be awarded an MBE apparently   ;D

"Ian St John has led the acclaim for Jimmy Greaves after it emerged that his great friend, former opponent and on-screen partner is finally set to receive a British honour. . . . I am delighted - it would be so much deserved and couldn’t happen to a nicer fella,” said St John, who is now 82 and won five major trophies with Liverpool in the 1960s. “Jimmy gave wonderful enjoyment to football fans and was then on the television for years giving entertainment and fun to people. He is quite simply one of the greatest players to have ever kicked a football."

Greaves scored 357 goals in 516 league matches between 1957 and 1972 for Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United, which remains the all-time English top-flight record. It is also 74 more goals in 43 fewer games than Alan Shearer, who is the record goalscorer since the old First Division was rebranded the Premier League in 1992

The Man City and England 'bad boy' is in the spotlight again - putting the Premier League in jeopardy ? Walker was the first Player I saw spitting this season - makes no sense to me   ::)  And goal celebrations - some social distancing please   :o

"The club announced on Christmas Day that Gabriel Jesus, Kyle Walker and two staff members had contracted the virus but, after the squad were tested again on Sunday, three more positive tests were confirmed, taking the total in the space of just five days to seven. Telegraph Sport knows the identity of the latest three players to be affected but cannot reveal their names on grounds of medical confidentiality. The trio - who it is thought have yet to show any symptoms - will have to self-isolate for at least 10 days. City fear their squad could have been exposed to the highly contagious new variant of the virus . . "

One that Walker cooked up earlier - "On 5 April 2020, the club began a disciplinary procedure against Walker after it was reported that he had broken national lockdown rules and invited two sex workers to his home amid the global coronavirus pandemic." (WikiP).

Joey Barton always in trouble - who can forget him stubbing a cigarette in a trainee's eye at Man City   >:( 

"The incident with (Ched) Evans was more high-profile than other spats with first-team players, but not isolated. It is believed a bad atmosphere had festered among sections of the squad" - no surprise there then   ::)
