Little bit of a change of pace here. Earlier today I had a lengthy chat with a guy called Eddie Firmani who probably wouldn't be known by about 99% of RAWKites. He's in the latter part of his 70's now and has just landed a small part time job at the firm I work for. Eddie's from South Africa and had quite a good playing career with Charlton Athletic in the 50's before playing in Italy for 8 years including several seasons at Inter. He's probably best known however for managing the New York Cosmos for several years. Those teams included Pele, Beckenbauer, Carlos Alberto, Chinaglia, Neeskens, etc. Must have been a bitch trying to manage that lot with all those inflated egos but I'll be quizzing him about that when I see him on Thursday. Nice guy though who spoke well of Shankly and Paisley and of course the once-great Anfield atmosphere. He did however speak highly of United and Ferguson which I grudgingly understand. Anyway, if you're not completely bored by now - google this guy.
