Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

An excellent keeper but not him. He was also capped by the Czech Rep and my man never capped at full international level.

Let's go for a wild punt on the infamous Dick Beattie and his role in the 1964 betting scandal that rocked the game in both Scotland and England?

GOAL!!! Where did that come from? It is indeed Charles "Chic" Brodie who's professional career was cut short during a league game at Colchester in 1970 when a dog ran on to the pitch, damaging ligaments in his knee. After recovery he signed for Margate and was in goal when Ted McDougall scored 9 (Nine) goals in Bournemouth's 11-0 FA Cup win 12 months later. Over to you Ropemaker.

Bit lucky. I just pondered if our man might be known for getting injured in some way.

Goalkeeper. Injured. Who else but ...
