    He lived in my hometown and used to get chased by schoolgirls. Think he went to Athletico Madrid - he was certainly there when I was managing them.

    I think he cried off about 90% of his loan spell to go shopping. Superb when he showed up though.

    Jason McAteer is apparently incredibly stupid. So much so that Neil Ruddock has virtually built his after dinner speaking career on anecdotes about his former team-mate, who is nicknamed Trigger after the Only Fools & Horses character.

    Like the one about when McAteer bumped into snooker legend Jimmy White, and greeted him by yelling "Oi hundred and eighty!!!".

    Yes, one of the stories I heard about McAteer was that he was applying for a mortgage with a form that had "Employment position:" and he wanted to know from his fellows whether he should put "defender" or "midfielder".

    I would have put defensive midfielder if I was him.

    What about Southgate? Started as a midfielder, ended up a defender. Same with Rio.

    Must be tricky.

    I thought that Rio started as a goalie when he was a nipper? where did i get that from.

    The one I heard about McAteer was when he had locked himself out of his car

    A passing copper said he could break into the car with a coat-hanger

    He went and got him a wooden one

    Phenotypic Dai The girdle of Venus

    Zaire v Brazil in the 1974 world cup. Free kick to Brazil, the ref blows his whistle and a Zaire defender comes steaming out of the wall and boots the ball straight up the pitch, later claiming that he thought he was allowed to do that. Video linky
  16. Refused as fuck

    Refused as fuck "ethnic pakistani tosser"

    During a pre-season friendly, then Newcastle United manager Sam Allardyce sent on goalkeeper Steven Harper to replace a striker and play up front. Although Harper had started his schoolboy career as a striker he looked extremely awkward running up and down the pitch and trying to put tackles in.
  17. 1927

    1927 Funnier than he thinks he is.

    Chris Balderstone once played a game for Chesterfield during an innings in which he scored a century for Derbyshire!

    Phenotypic Dai The girdle of Venus

    David Platt's subtle and witty best man's speech, at a close friend's wedding, where he trotted out the names of the groom's ex partners, his favoured method of contraception and rounded it off by suggesting that the groom still suffered from a lingering STD.
