This would have caused a pitch invasion. If only……

Recommended Posts

Towards the end of the game Des Walker was in the area with a chance to win the game but sadly not to be. Could you just have imagined the scenes if the legend had tucked that away? Would have probably been a pitch invasion with a 5,000 man pile on with Des at the bottom. If only.


On a side note what was he doing there in the first place? I thought Des never went past the half way line.

I remember him trying to shoot and falling over, but in my mind it was at the end of a brilliant 60 yard run up the pitch, not from the goalie fumbling the ball out.


Des with a 60 yard run and goal in the last minute. That's what dreams are made of.


Merry Christmas

Don't think I've ever actually proper celebrated a goal in a friendly, other than for the novelty of seeing Des Walker score a goal in Hirsty's testimonial. He came on as sub (he was still playing for the club, think it was the day after a league game) and played up front.
