The Mavericks on Netflix.

Been watching this on Netflix

Well worth a watch...Not just the football episodes.

The first episode on the football one is about the 1970s....bit before my time, but it was unbelievable that Stan Bowles, Frank Worthington, Rodney Marsh, Peter Osgood and Alan Hudson won a grand total of 29 England Caps! This In an era when England couldn’t qualify for a major tournament. Ramsey, Revie and Greenwood refused to pick them.

In the 80’s and 90’s it was the same for the likes of Le Tisser, Hoddle and Merson.

Phil Neville played 59 times for England.....

My footballing hero when I was growing up was Frank McAvennie - strange as i’m not Scottish and dislike Celtic. He managed 5 Scotland Caps and Charlie Nicholas only 20.

Obviously it was their off field antics and being showmen that cost them.

  • Watched them all this week. Brilliant series.

    Sport is so dull and sterile by comparison these days. Life taken too seriously and people do themselves.

    Probably sentimental nostalgia but it all seemed a bit more fun back then.

    While probably not treated that well by England, Hoddle got 53 caps

    When Alf Ramsey told Rodney Marsh, "If you don't work harder I'll pull you off at half time," Marsh replied: "Crikey, Alf, at Manchester City all we get is an orange and a cup of tea" ... He was never picked again.
    I heard it was Mark Wright to Bobby Robson........?

    Probably should have been 153. I’m not too keen on since h hung up his boots, but he was a quality player.

    No doubt about it, football in the 70’s and 80’s was more entertaining.

    Charlie George just got one cap too.
  • Proper geezers back in the day and I can't imagine them lasting five minutes in the modern game.

    The levels of fitness weren't perhaps so high in the past and characters were tolerated a bit more at the club level. Football was a bit more fun and players could piss about a bit more. Worthington was probably my favourite and I loved the way Le Tiss strolled about.

    Social media would have murdered these players when they were out on the piss.

    Yeah, maybe. My recollection is a bit hazy now but I remember him being a bit like John Barnes, great for his club less so for country. The argument was whether England should build the whole side around him.

  • Just for a treat.

  • Just watched episode 1 - some brilliant footage and interviews. Amazing how some of these players were treated.

    You forget how terrible some of the playing surfaces were and how industrial the tackling was. Clough's interviews are brilliant and I'd forgotten what a knob Revie was.

    The goal by Worthington at the end is one of the best I've ever seen.

    Worth watching just for the haircuts.
  • Disappointed, thought this was about the dodgy group from the 90s singing about dancing the night away .

    Also, I don't even remember him retiring from international football. I just remember he stopped getting picked.

    I recall Marsh telling the story when he was a football pundit, also noted here by the Guardian

    The thing is though its a great line, I should think there are a few who have claimed it.
