From the Observer archive, 10 January 1971: George Best and Bobby Moore – peas in a pod?

Both players made headlines for the wrong reasons, but the parallels end there Bobby Moore and George Best have so much in common, especially in a week when their crass misdemeanours have forced them to share embarrassing headlines, that many people will fail to identify the vast dissimilarities in their natures. This is a pity, for it can only encourage the gloating of those who are always anxious to tell us that professional footballers are uncouth louts who…

The only surprise, perhaps, was that Manchester City restricted themselves to six. The tie was so one-sided, the level of opposition so utterly abject, that there were moments when it was easy to imagine another seven-goal haul to emulate what happened against Norwich, never mind the six that Arsenal and Tottenham sieved inside this stadium. The fifth goal went in before the hour had even passed. After that, the goal machine that is Manuel…

Nottingham Forest 5-0 West Ham | FA Cup match report

Hat-trick hero Jamie Paterson and the captain Andy Reid expressed their delight at helping Nottingham Forest reach the fourth round of the FA Cup after demolishing West Ham. Sam Allardyce raised eyebrows by making nine changes to his West Ham side against tricky Championship opposition, and his decision backfired as the hosts ran riot. While Djamel Abdoun’s 12th-minute penalty and Reid’s strike at the death bookended the scoring, it was Paterson who stole the…

Fulham 2-1 West Ham United | Premier League match report

West Ham’s relegation worries deepened as they sunk to a deserved defeat at fellow strugglers Fulham after their captain, Kevin Nolan, was sent off in the first half for kicking out at Fernando Amorebieta. Sam Allardyce’s side had taken an early lead thanks to Mohamed Diamé but Steve Sidwell equalised for the hosts before Nolan’s inexcusable folly left the already weakened visitors at a numerical disadvantage. Fulham, who were superior even before the red card, dominated the rest of the game and secured victory with a goal from Dimitar Berbatov…
