    Nominate (last nomination): Gazza - who can forget those tears in 1990.

    Would nominate a couple of West Germans from that era, but I'm out of luck now.
    Nah, sorry, it's 8 proposals in total; proposals includes nominations and 2nds. You have one left.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Ah. Gotcha. Obviously wasn't simply enough for a Tottenham fan to understand then, was it?

    I'll 2nd Escobar then, and hang the consequences. Did I use up a 2nd on Roger Milla that someone else has 2nded too, though? Or did you ignore that?

    Escobar's already in; nominated by NUFAN & seconded by Samuel. & Milla was nominated by fred & ratified by Stuelen, so no.

    Feel free to choose again.

    Oh FFS.

    2nd Puskas... And I'll go and have my medicine now, I think. Hopefully there is a treatment for being mildly ********.

    If he's seconding Aldo, I'm seconding Barnes.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Just to confirm, for the over enthusiastic, players require nominations and seconds from different posters...
