Well here's a heartwarming and inspirational football story. Just about a year ago, the   Mexican footballer Raúl Jiménez, who played as Wolves' star striker, was so badly injured after a collision of heads that it seemed he would die.

There's a lovely 30-minute documentary on the Beeb that follows his route to recovery from that awful incident. It's taken many months for his rehabilitation, but as from the start of this season he's fully recovered and is, by now, back to his menacing best for Wolves (he scored an amazing goal yesterday) and is going from strength to strength.

He's a lovely, smiley man with a lovely family, all featured in the programme, as is his erstwhile Wolves manager, Nuno Espiritosanto, another wonderful human being. I thought it was a great watch. It's called Code Red and it's on iPlayer.

I've posted this on another thread (the pet peeves job), but it definitely belongs here too. Liverpool had just slaughtered Man Ure 5-0 at Old Trafford this afternoon (sorry, Raggytash, this isn't intended as a gloat, though, naturally, I'm lying...). This is what I posted:

Following on from that, at the end of the match the BBC radio commentator said "In the first half, United had their trousers pulled down by Liverpool. In the second half, they just toyed with 'em..."

Yet another scintillating, thrilling game, Atletico Madrid v. Liverpool in the Champions League. We won dirty, as they say, in a tight and open game. Edge of seat, which is how I like it. Atleti, as expected, play-acted their way through the match and their manager Diego Simeone did his primadonna bit on the touchline as ever. So we top the group, max points, and two more goals for Mo. Brilliant!

A stellar football match at Anfield. A draw, but who cares. Pep and Jurgen have a huge amount of respect for each other. The second half especially was a footballing spectacle you will rarely see. The icing on the cake was Mo Salah's goal. You won't see a better one this season. What I love is that these guys are producing the kind of football that football fans love. No parking of the bus, no defensive negativity. Brilliant stuff.

I really miss Mike's input to this thread. I've PMd him but got no response.

Dig this piece of writing from Barney Ronay in the Guardian about last night's match:

At moments like these Chelsea seem to have a wealth of everything, and somehow not quite enough of some things: a brilliantly powerful squad that still has the sense somehow of too much hole and not enough doughnut.

"Too much hole and not enough doughnut." God, I love that! I've used it four times this morning already (once about Keir Starmer...)

Tuff titty, Chelski! They were mugged by a canny Juve team (I watched the match). Juventus always seemed to have nine or ten men behind the ball, shades of Mourinho when he was at the helm at Chelsea. I still expect Chelsea to get through from the group they're in. They should smash Juve at the Bridge (which I lived literally next door to for two years in the early 70s, where I first met the eventually-to-be Mrs Steve in 1974). I see that Man U scraped a victory. Actually, I'm a massive admirer of Cristiano, and I treasure a photo of Mrs Steve standing next to his statue in Funchal, Madeira, the place of his upbringing. Just down from that statue is a coffee bar that sells the best bloody pastel de nata on the planet. Yes!!

Sir Roger headed the rebound from Geoff Hurst's "controversial" goal-line goal in the World Cup Final over the bar. He could have headed it into the net instead, but Roger KNEW that the ball had crossed the line and felt he didn't need to. What class! What honesty! What a man!   What a Liverpool legend!

Just watched the first part of Fever Pitch on BBC2:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p09mqv7k/episodes/guide

The story of how football's Premier League was formed, told by its stars. What began in 1992 as a controversial breakaway has become the most watched sporting competition in the world.
I'm not a football fan (my wife is, she went to Old Trafford with her Dad as a girl) but I found it very interesting. How Murdoch's gamble in creating Sky TV paid off, and created football as a business rather than a sport.

I've seen more of Cantona in films than on the pitch. Ken Loach's Looking for Eric is good.
