    A(nother) great piece, fred.

    The background to the incident is fascinating; I for one was unaware of the bad blood that existed between the two teams that lead to the iconic "bat raised as if to strike" picture.

    - 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."

    Brilliant read about two great individuals. Good to see that they both had the best of compliments for each other after retirement.

    Loved it as usual fred. I know Cricinfo did a similar article on the incident, but the historical context you provided makes this the better read.
