A thread that pays tribute to all of the best brawls the beautiful game has ever witnessed.
Bunch of fannies.
You want to see a football fight?
Can’t remember where I read it but apparently Gary sprake was the boy too sort em out
He chinned Bobby Gould, Leeds v Arsenal
Not so much a fight to one sided ,but l remember being a young kid watching a City V Jacks Welsh Cup game when the legend Don Murray sparked out one of the Jacks sadly we were 3 up at the time but finally lost 5-3.Would love to know what triggered Don to react like that after all he was such a gentle soul on the pitch
Yes he had a reputation as did Johnny Giles infact Leeds as a team could handle themselves
As l say l was a kid at the time and l would love to hear from someone who remembers the incident in more detail than me
Bobby Gould got booked as well
Gary Sprake just a booking
Modern footballers don't know they're born
Sprake was a loony, when we played Leeds in the cup in 1972 someone threw a pasty at him, he picked it up, took a bite, and threw it back in the Grange end.
Probably one of @Mrs Steve R vegan monstrosities, no wonder he chucked it back
The consensus amongst players is that Billy Whitehurst was the toughest, most feared player. A bricklayer who had the odd bare knuckle fight for money was not to be messed with.
I'm not a vegan I'm not even a good veggie atm, had a ham & egg salad for lunch
Maybe not, but you are responsible for flogging the things
Sorry, didn't realize I OWNED Greggs
Ark at Sprake “I’ll just sit down here and pretend that I have cramp”
Cracking left hook that fair play
I’ve been thinking about it and it may have been in Jack Charltons autobiography where he said along the line of “ whenever we was in a pub and it got a little too heavy we’d just give Gary a shout and he’d go and sort em out”
Filth that but something that would be expected of a jack bastard
Wasn’t scoular an hard fucker? Was it true he had clough by the throat?
Scoular was a hard bloke, the city player who chinned Clough was Danny Malloy, another headcase.
Duncan Ferguson is a hard fucker from the modern ish era
