Winston Biscuit the person you definitely want in your squad when you are facing a really tough season, where you could be right up against it and may well lose more games than you win is Ravel Morrison


They may as well go the whole hog and sign Nile Ranger too.

He was released after 7 years of his 22-year sentence and said

What happened, happened. I made a mistake, a serious one, but mistakes happens in life -- I'm not a bad guy. People tried to bury my dreams because of one mistake, but I asked God for forgiveness, so I'm carrying on with my career, dude. :lol: :shock:

Something really screams pyschopath about not understanding the gravity of what he did.
He's back in prison now after it was revealed that his defence team had interfered in the delayed appeals process, that delay being what saw him released in the first place.

Probably a whole bunch of south american footballers that could make up a wrong un XI. Different world of wrongness down there

Wasn't it Adriano that left his girlfriend tied to a tree in the woods overnight after he suspecting her of being up to summat?

Renen Higuita was mates with Pablo Escobar and went to prison for helping kidnap someone. On the other hand he once did a 'scorpion kick' and the balance of play seems to be in favour of the latter so we remember him fondly

Sorry to be the ultimate party pooper, but the scorpion kick was great but futile - the whistle had already gone and the ball wasn't in play.

Real aside, but for some reason you mentioning the flamboyant Higuita has reminded me of Jorge Campos - the 5ft 6ins Mexican goalkeeper who designed his own kits and sometimes played up front.



This is the 'Rest of the World' team at his farewell friendly. And yes, he's stood on the ball at the back so you can see him. :lol:

Not quite true on the kidnapping either. He acted as a go-between between Pablo Escobar and another crime family who's daughter Escobar had kidknapped. He delivered the ransom money, the family paid him for doing so and he got arrested for benefiltting financially from a kidnap. There was no suggestion he was involvedvin the actual kidnap He spent time inside but was released without charge. This being Colombia, he was probably just happy to get out of prison alive.
