The United players spend to much time on social media reading about the Class of 92 shagging their sister in laws or slapping their women about. I must say its distracted me. Cant get any time to laze about on the UKFF when I'm at work.

Maybe not as relevant to some of the younger forum members, but Billy McNeil, the first British player to lift the European cup has passed away aged 79. A true one-club man, he played 486 times for Celtic over a period of eighteen years, winning nine league championships, thirteen domestic cups and the European cup itself.

It's insane to think today that the Celtic team that won the European cup back then comprised of not only all Scottish players, but players who had all been born within a 30 mile radius of Glasgow itself.

McNeil was also manager of Manchester City and Villa in the 80's, winning promotion from the old 2nd division with Citeh.

Yeah, I don't see anyone coming close out of that lot. Harry Kane is the only possibility in my view, but he'd need 20 goals a season for the next 7 campaigns. Seems possible, but his injuries are starting to become more frequent now.

He actually played more than 800 games. Incredible player and person and the way he has been spoken about today from all sides is extremely rare in Scottish football.

Good spot, I think I meant to type 860, not 486. Regardless, he was a hell of a servant to Celtic. Absolutely criminal that he got less than 30 Scotland caps.

What's needed by the current crop of top goal scorers to beat Alan Shearer's record for Premier League goals. I do love me some good football stats:

It’s not inconceivable that Aguero could do it. He’s 30, so if he stays at City for another 5 years (remember when Jesus was his replacement? Lol), then he ‘only’ needs to average 20 a season for another 5 seasons.

Nah, I can't see that happening. He only lasts 60 mins per game these days, I think his legs will be gone before he can come close to Shearer's record. 2-3 more seasons at this level before he takes a nice lucrative deal in MLS or somewhere.

What else can be said about Billy McNeill? Football has lost one of its most imperious figures. I think it's incredibly telling that, for a moment at least, the football world stopped to remember Billy. The tributes being paid to him are coming from all corners of the world and are from some of the biggest and most prominent clubs. He transcended the Old Firm rivalry and the likes of him and John Greig should make us proud to be Glaswegian.

In many ways, we have already grieved for Billy as he battled an absolute bastard of a disease and was robbed of the vitality and pride that he is characterised by. There are fewer iconic images in the game's history as him lifting the European Cup in 1967. Hail Cesar.
