Hi gang, i was showing my son the leaked unconfirmed list of 60+ icons and I was impressed that he knew them all. He was talking to his friends on chat and most of them had never heard of Cruyff or Seddorf and they're only interested in the new Gerrard and Lampard icons.
As a dad, as soon as my son opened his eyes, he was subjected to football, football and more football (and Star Wars *cough)
and he's had a great education in football players from Bobby Charlton, to Gazza to Voller.
I find it a bit sad that a lot of kids/ young adults think football started when Messi and Ronaldo started playing and not knowing Rivaldo or Best surly means they're missing out on watching some great players.
Maybe I'm an old fool and think everyone who loves football should know about the oldies, but my son thinks I'm being unfair as not knowing about these players doesn't hurt anyone. True I suppose.
At least we watch Escape to Victory twice a year as every football fan should
So do you know or heard about every icon?
