    I bet most followers of any sports team have favs who weren't perhaps of the first rank talent-wise. On that note I give you the immortal Perry Groves:



    Best remembered for his uncompromising gingerness, having the first touch of a nervous virgin & for setting up both of Charlie Nicholas's goals in the 86/87 Littlewoods Cup win over Liverpool. Famously the first occasion when Ian Rush scored and Liverpool lost.
    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

    Mike Garnham!

    Would put Iain O'Brien on the list, but he's very heralded. Very.
