Potless FC – Part 3: Stan & Beppe

Here’s Matt Wills with your Thursday fun. Potless FC are getting serious…

Crystal Palace, the team that has never won a major title, filled with players who haven’t won any either, sit 3rd in the Premiership under my tutelage and with all to play for in the domestic cups. Selhurst Park is a wonderful place to be at the moment.

This will mean I’m in my 4th decade with this game, I can scarcely believe it.

I played it (unwisely) during my A-Levels when first released and then again for a year or two in 2004/05, before picking it back up again in 2017 and doing some blogging for Dave, after reading his excellent stories.

Those of you who have followed some of my other blogs will know I love to tinker with the editor and loosely rewrite history, whether it’s bringing Cantona out of retirement to win the treble with Utd in 99 or giving the heroes of Italia 90 another crack at glory, I always find I’m drawn to a strong theme.
