I still blame Shilton for the hand ball incident. If it was Big Kev Miller the ball would have been sailing towards the halfway line and Diego would have been too concussed to score that other goal 😉

Spot on. Maradona’s hand was on top of his head, and he was about 5’ 5”. Shilton was 6’ 1” and was allowed to extend his arm. Look how far Maradona’s feet were off the floor compared to Shilton. Useless Argyle ******.

I prefer that spelling with the vague possibility he was distantly related to Stan Harland.
Thanks, intrigued by the theory that you have to be able to spell a players name before being allowed to have an opinion on him, how does that work?

A magnificent footballer whose extraordinary genius lit up the game.

He also committed handball, which is of course unspeakably wicked and far worse than ending careers with injuries, taking/offering bribes, drunk driving, and all the other things that football people have done over the years, while being called a "character" who is quickly forgiven and fondly remembered.
