Two things arise from this old video advertising the brilliant Brian McBride’s return to the Cottage on Saturday:
1) Why isn’t this stunning goal in there? For sheer surprise value and the fact that it knocked the stuffing out of West Ham in an FA Cup tie I just wasn’t confident about, it should be. Plus it was one of hell of a finish.
2) Apparently, our talismanic former skipper won’t be paraded on the pitch or do the half-time draw but simply talk to those supporters able to pay £30 for his post-match appearance. If true, that would be very disappointing, and a real missed opportunity for the American to receive the ovation he never real got when he left Fulham.
