PETER SHILTON

PETER SHILTON

First published in Saints News

FORMER Saints star Peter Shilton will be presented with a special cap by UEFA ahead of England's friendly with Belgium on June 2.

European football's governing body want to honour every player across the continent who has reached the milestone of playing more than 100 times for their country and the Wembley encounter - Roy Hodgson's first game in charge - has been chosen as the designated game for England.

David Beckham and Bobby Charlton will also receive a special cap.

In addition, the widows of both Bobby Moore and Billy Wright will be present to accept the honour on behalf of their late husbands.

I see that Mr. Grimsdale comments have been taken off and so they should be "he who is without sin cast the first stone" comes to mind.
The man may well be flawed but what man isn't, you cannot criticise his achievements though, much more than Mr. Grimsdale could ever dream of I suspect.
Just to reiterate what Costa Baz wrote "get some respect" or don't bother writing dribble.

"Dribble" - love it. Are you operating a different dictionary to everyone else?
I've got plenty of respect but I get to decide who to give it to, not Baz.

I think it was more a case of dribbling drivel.

First game I ever went to in 1990 he was injured so Budgie was in goal and we lost 2-0 to Spurs. After that I was too young to go by myself and we couldn't afford it til 2 years later when he'd moved on! I've got a ticket for this England game but never seen Shilts in the flesh so this will be an honour. Great keeper.

Have supported Saints from near and afar since 1953 (you work out the years - I'm afraid to!) and whilst not arguing with the above "top" team I would have to find a place for one Terry Paine. A truly great Saint. Think Le Tissier came from same mould.

BlandfordSaint's team is indeed very worthy. I could never make my mind up though ..where is Ron Davies, Mark Wright, David Peach, David Armstrong, Nick Holmes etc etc etc it's simply impossible. Mainly because you can only have 11 in a team .. shame ...

I do think they could have found a better picture of Shilts though. Perhaps one of him in action, punching a cross up to the half way line ... no one did it better.

i won't work it out either but the only way to select your top team would be to do your favourite for each decade so unfortunately JohnItaly you would have to do more than most.

R Davies still remains the best forward I have seen. He used to strike terror into defences. Still the last player to score 4 at Old Trafford in one match by an away player.when MU had just won the league and were going to go on to become the first English team to win the Champions cup. Against what I still believe to be the best United side.

Some great teams on here tonight, impossible to pick eleven, but I think Ron Davis would have to go up front, I would go for Moran over Keegan, Le Tiss in Midfield along side Paine and Ball, definately Shilts in goal, although Tommy Forecast could get a mention lol, at the back, Ivan has got to have a chance.
Ita so difficult, I really want to put Rickie and Adam in as well, so going to create a few additional sub places

Well done Peter Shilton.

Changing topic.. I see the Daily Echo put AOC on the back page of the Echo today extolling his virtues and talent.

Let's get this absolutely straight

1) AOC played some games in League One for SAINTS - and often came off with muscle cramps.

2) He chose not to stay with THE MIGHTY SOUTHAMPTON to fight in the Championship for Premier League Football.

3) The Daily Echo shot it's own city - SOUTHAMPTON - in the foot by not letting it drop and covering the back pages until AOC was on his way.

4) Greed and Ambition paved the way for the move - AOC's Dad was instrumental in Alex leaving Southampton.

We don't do Racism or Violence on this site ...

But let's have some more hard-hitting facts :

a) When AOC comes to St Mary's in the League - he is gonna get some sh*t - and every ball he trips over or runs out of play - Saints Fans will cheer.

b) AOC's Dad is a money hunting disgrace that rather see his son play his football on the Bench or on the Training Ground then play football for the Number One Club in the South.

He should keep a low profile or not be seen at St Mary's again for his own safety.

Alex could have played for England and been with Premiership Southampton.

For his greed he will get what he deserves - getting splinters on the bench.

BACK TO THE SUPER SAINTS.

WE AIM FOR A TOP SIX FINISH IN THE PREMIERSHIP.

NIGEL ADD SOME MORE QUALITY TO THE SQUAD.

WE ARE RED AND WHITE.

RED ARMY 2012. WE RULE THE SOUTH. COYR.

RED ARRRRRRRRRRRRRMY.

WE ARE THE TOP BOYS IN THE SOUTH

Look - No Open topped tour Bus was put on for the loyal and dedicated Saints Fans after the Double Promotion ...

But that will not stop us partying ...

SAINTS FANS ON TOUR.

Whatever Sporting Event you attend (like England vs Barbarians at Twickenham) OR whatever you are doing over the Summer in UK or on holiday ..

WEAR THE COLOURS WITH PRIDE AND CONTINUE THE FEEL GOOD FACTOR FOR GETTING PROMOTED TO THE PREMIER LEAGUE

Saw some london fans today - and from around UK - most were ok apart from a couple of aggressive chelski fans ..

WE ARE THE MIGHTY SOUTHAMPTON.

QPR .. ars*nil ... chelski ... don't bother us ...

RED ARMY IS NUMBER 1 IN THE SOUTH.

WE INTEND TO TAKE THE PREMIER LEAGUE BY STORM.

THE RISE AND RISE OF RED ARMY IS LINKED TO THE SUCCESS OF SOUTHAMPTON FOOTBALL CLUB.

THE PRINCE OF WALES IS ALWAYS GOOD FOR A COUPLE OF BEERS.

RED AND WHITE. SOUTHAMPTON AND ENGLAND.

RED ARRRRRRRRRRRRRMY.
FIGHT AND WIN. COYR
