  • Got to agree about not seeing certain names at WHL yesterday. I can’t help but think inviting Gazza in particular would’ve been a massive boost to the much troubled one time genius. I think it was a bit of a slap in the face for Gazza, to be honest. I loved Berbatov as a player, but he went on strike, refused to put on a shirt & sulked his way to Man Utd, leaving us with Frazier fecking Campbell, yet was called onto the pitch to stand shoulder to shoulder with true THFC legends. Sorry but that just doesn’t sit right with me.

  • Gazza was invited but he declined, don’t think it would have been good for his rehabilitation, there was a piece on him and his memories on the official website instead. Shame but understandable.

  • I too was startled to see Berbatov. Glad to see Crouchie, who was able to come because he played on Saturday.

  • Berbatov? Might as well have invited the little Modder Focker who’s playing with Bale at Francisco Franco’s team in Madrid. At least when Berbatov went on strike he was a striker. But MoFo?

  • There was some strange ones there. Vinny Samways, Steven Carr, Simon Davies, David Howells, Nielsen, Stewart, as least Edinburgh gave a testicle for the club. Yes, they may be good players and scored important goals but they are not legends. How does Michael Dawson not get a mention, when you look at those above. I was waiting for Nayim to walk on, would have got the biggest cheer.

  • I expected Tim Sherwood, AVB, Arry Redknapp, and the last trophy winner Juande Ramos!

  • I loved watching Berbatov. He did things with a ball that nobody else would think of trying. He looked after his own career, just like we all do … that’s no reason to belittle him, imo. Ditto, Modric. I’m sure none of them would be upset by the way we organise our lives.
