    Worse than that, according to Aldridge - https://www.independent.ie/sport/soc...-36702053.html

    Annoyingly, the goal was later taken off me and put down as an own goal from their keeper, but I still had my moment and Couto was suitably annoyed.

    Not Good from Couto

    As an Aside; He had a great head of hair. I wonder did he get it from the mother or elsewhere ! !

    Its a pity his knee was shot. I think one of the signs of how good a player Brady was that when he went to Italy that different Italian Clubs bought him. This was when Italy was the place for the best Players in the World. You would see a top player go there and if the Italians did not rate him they they would be back after a year or so. Had Brady gone a year or two earlier he could have had an even bigger impact ! ! !
