Best player you've seen play against your club?


Recommended Posts

Wayne Rooney. Hat-trick in a pre-season game not long before he scored his big breakthrough goal against Arsenal.

Mad to think of a top flight English side sending practically a first team up to play against a fourth tier Scottish side now.

Stan Bowles for Carlisle United in a pre-season friendly against Sons at Boghead in 1972. He just strolled through the midfield and nobody could get the ball off him.

(That was also the game in which Kenny Wilson scored what I called forever after the £10,000 goal. He had apparently been on Carlisle's radar at a price of £10,000 and was sold to them later in the week for £20,000. Despite 20 appearances for them I think he managed to net  only once.)

Yes, and if I remember he was only 16 at the time, and the reason they played us, was because our ex-player, Alan Irvine was at that time, the Everton assistant manager.

Sergio Ramos!!! I am glad I have found your post. I came here to read more about other players because I love football and I always gather information on football. I was searching about https://writinguniverse.com/free-essay-examples/law-enforcement/ website online and when I was searching for it online, I have found your post. I came here because I love to gather information online regarding football.
