|Fratton Park re-development|
at 12:16 14 Jun 2021
News just in. The great unwashed have announced a £10 million 're-development' of the old dump, including what is described in The News as a 'longer-term decoration programme’. Ten million quid?!!! Who the hell's doing the decorating... Carrie Symonds?!!

Geoff Hurst v West Germany, 1966
Hurst left totally unmarked. The German defenders all over the place. Easiest hat trick in a World Cup final he'll ever get. This simply wouldn't have happened with Van Dijk and Fonte at the back. West Germany had three and a half years to sort out their defence but it's the same old story.
Diego Maradona v England, 1986
Dreadful defending. No organisation whatsoever at the back. Allowed the little Argentinian chap to simply stroll through to the goal unchallenged. England had three and a half years to sort out the central defence. No way this would have happened if Van Dijk and Fonte had been playing.
Marco Van Basten v USSR, 1988
Once again a forward left totally unmarked. No communication, no leadership. Wouldn't have happened with Van Dijk and Fonte at the back. The USSR had three and a half years to sort out their defence but it's the same old story.
Mick Channon v Liverpool, 1982
Sometimes you just have to hold your hands up and admit that there is absolutely no blame whatsoever attached to the Liverpool central defenders. However, take a closer look at the goal. Seven Southampton players involved in the move, but there are two notable absentees from that list. Yes, you've guessed... the two centre backs! Ball watching, yet again. I'm sorry, but this just wouldn't have happened with Van Dijk and Fonte at the back. We had three and a half years to sort out the centre of defence, yet it's the same old story again and again and again and again.....
