    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - 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."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Nah, want 48 as minimum now. Too many legends missing out to start just yet.

    No seeding either; all random.

    In case anyone is wondering why I nominated Saeed al-Owairan, this would be why:

    YouTube - World Cup '94 -- Al Owairan -- Saudi Arabia vs Belgium

    Remember that goal clearly.

    Will also nominate Paul Gascoigne for the tears in 1990.

    I'll also nominate Jose Batista of Uruguay for being sent off within a minute of taking to the field in (I think) 1986. Classic. (#8 in this youtube countdown - YouTube - 10 maiores curiosidades da Copa do Mundo)

    Finally, Sergio Goychochea (sic.) for all those saved penalties. Don't remember the year.
