Obscure Football Reference of the Day

During last night's episode Less was trying to suck up to Chesney and get him to kick the football around with him and Kirkeh. When the lads agree Less gets excited and announces 'I'll be Zinedine Zidane!' In case anyone has been in a coma moon for the last decade and doesn't recognize the name, Zidane is a French footballer of some fame who retired after an infamous end to his career at the 2006 World Cup. In spite of that moment of madness in the Final against Italy, and the fact that he is a surrender prone Frenchie, (although of Algerian origins) the smurfman has to say that Zidane is one of the 5 best footballers of the modern era, in the same category as George Best, Franz Beckenbauer, Maradona, and Pele.

The only thing he and Less have in common is a short temper.

Like that list, I was on side until Maradona popped up. ;-p

This will be my distraction come Christmas time, pub quizzes always include obscure footy players. (he says to stay on topic, heheh)
