  2. qwerty says:

    George best kinda looks like berbatov here

  3. Chris says:

    And Denis Law looks disconcertingly like Liberace in the first photo!

  4. Lloyd says:

    Why the fuck is Clough holding a Badminton racket?

  5. Jack says:

    Clough didn’t want Francis getting a big head about being such a star signing, so he quickly wrapped up the signing and then went off to play a game or two of Badminton.

  6. Trololololo says:

    There’s something very wrong about the Keegan photo… it looks as if each of their heads is about to fall off
