I was always amazed that Ledley King was only ever booked 8 times in 299 appearances for Spurs.

Most CBs clock that up in a season

Gary Lineker never picked up a single booking in his entire career. Unbelievable that stat.

He's also lucky he played back in the days before shirt sponsors made it illegal to rip your shirt off when celebrating a goal.

He is also lucky that shiiiting yourself in a World Cup Semi Final and wiping your 'arris on the pitch isn't a yellow card offence.

Lineker invented diving.
That is a huge stane on his legacy imo.

Still can't quite get my head round (even though I was there for one of the games) that Chelsea once beat a team from Luxembourg called Jeunesse Hautcharage in a two legged European tie 21-0. Apparently it's a record and I guess it won't now be beaten in European competition.

It's an even more odd story when find out a bit more about the team that they played against. A village football team featuring four brothers, a one-armed striker, a bespectacled midfielder, two players over the age of 40 and a 15-year-old on the bench, who had enjoyed a fantastic run to a cup final, win it against the odds and earn a dream European tie against the competition holders.

If a team like that was playing today I reckon West Ham would send a couple of scouts to run the rule over them.
