Who was better? Sam Bartram or Pablo Picasso?

Well, here's an article from 1952 on just that topic in Esperanto.

For those of you who don't read Esperanto there's a translation.

  • This is just one cutting from Sam's personal collection of letters, cuttings, contracts etc that have been handed over to the museum today.

    There are boxes and boxes of the stuff so it will take a while to sort out but more as and when we've scanned and photographed it all.
  • Depends on the position. Sam was better in goal but I hear Pablo was a wizard up front.

    As Jonathan Richmond told us "no one ever called Pablo Picasso an arsehole"
  • Picasso was a one-trick pony and, let's face it, his pictures weren't very life-like. How he made a living it's hard to imagine, whereas Sam not only played in goal, he had a shop and a column in a Sunday paper. No contest.
  • Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, stage designer, poet and playwright but shit in goal.
  • I think pick arsehole also knocked out a few sculpture too but Bartrum clinched it with the column in a Sunday paper :0)

    Apparently, he used to brush off defenders.
  • Sam Bartram has a statue at the valley, Picasso hasn't even got a painting hanging up at the valley.
    Easy win for big Sam

    You've never been in the Chairman's suite at the Valley then, obviously.

    With the present lot in charge I would think it would be by picarsehole
  • Was Sam ever spotted in the same room as Pablo?
  • Sam was taller. Next question.....
  • Sam's the clear winner in my view, and I am unanimous in that!
  • If anyone has a genuine Picasso, I'd be more than willing to pay £200 for it. It'll last, for perhaps a hundred years, whooo!
  • I've a Picasso lithograph print and Bartrams book.

    Just need an original 'Socialist Leader' for the set.
  • that's superb
    thanks

    more, more, more
  • I never saw Pablo play, but Sam was a hero of mine as a boy, a real Charlton legend
  • Pablo was a Libero in a Parisian bordello
  • Picasso had a Muse

    Sam had Landsdowne Mews
