WHO Poll
Q: Manuel Pellegrini
a. A great signing for the Club and maybe the change of direction we all need
b. It will only be a great signing if the Board back him with decent funds
c. This is West Ham so it will only end in farce
d. I'm not sure about this one, I'll wait until SKY is back to hear what Gary Neville thinks, then I'll voice my opinion

John Charles
Not ours but the Welsh and Juventus legend, any of you older members see him play? I can't recall seeing him but I've heard a great deal about him, Juventus fans called him Il Gigante Buono, because of his fair play on the pitch.

Saw him score from the halfway line against Pompey, a gentle giant really nice guy.

Re: John Charles
I saw him play many times for Hereford United in the old Southern League.
My Granfather started to take me to Edgar Street when I was 8 or 9 in the late 1960’s.
Charles was so big they could hardly get a shirt to fit him, but head a ball? He was majestic and dominant up front and in defence. He didn’t move much, I guess he’d have been nearly 40, but a true giant in all senses.

No FC, before my time but I wish I had
CB and striker, immense physicality and brilliant with it - still revered by Juve to this day and they have had a few players since him
