    Yeah, "working out ways to milk this" has absolutely no negative connotations at all.

    You know what Jeterpool, you're right.
    I feel awesome now.

    “Les turned the term “the world game” into a reality for millions of Australians. He had unmatched passion along with his great friend the late Johnny Warren MBE OAM for what football could be and how to take it there, " said Gallop.

    I don't understand this. Do people really not see that Fozzie is a superb analyst; far, far better than Les ever was? Fozzie's also a far better advocate of the game. I just don't get the Foz hate.

    Rest in peace, Les.

    Foz actually is an excellent analyst

    Problem is that he isn't respected enough

    He was a modest player

    He has done nothing as a manager


    Yet he carries on like he invented Tikka Takka and over does it

    His analysis at times is bigoted towards his views

    Id say even blokes as cocooned as Shorten and Turnbull would be well aware of who Les was and what he was about. But yeah the PR dept was def scouring wikipedia for some info.
    As for Gallop, this is one area where i rate him. he obviously didnt know Les all that well to treat him as a BFF so he didnt roll out the crocodile tears to put himself front and centre. He just acknowledged it from an FFA position then got out of the way to let Les' real mates and fans have their say. Gallop has always come from a place of awkward honesty in times like this. I think its a good thing.

    He is also the second best poster on the entire Foz behind you

    Foz played in England's first division when it was probably the world's third-best league.

    Yes, he was also voted into Palace's all-time worst XI, but he played at a far higher level than most Australians and was a Socceroo midfielder when the competition was very strong.

    As for managing, his work with Nerds FC is legendary.

    Foz cops it sometimes I think because for a while there Spanish football was the be all and end all of his football views, and sometimes he just comes over as a bit "smug".

    He knows his stuff though.

    How about this vid of Les on Facebook...

    Brilliant - Les says "f*&k" !
