    Happy 80th birthday Pele

    The Worlds greatest Footballer.
    Was lucky to see him play at villa park for Santos, in the 3 day week with 3 floodlights

    Yea, I was lucky enough to attend that game. Remember some thick tw8t of a Vile fan shouting '' Who needs F***ing Pele when we've got Andy Lockhead'' and he was not joking around either. He bloody meant it. They were tw*ts then as well as now.

    villa also had a young scotsman called jimmy brown ( i never use capitals when i mention villa) who tried kick Pele of the park.
    After one foul he put his hands up turned to all 4 stands, as if to say you have all come to see me and this pr@t is trying to cripple me.
