^^ Kudos to you. Sounds like you have one helluva collection. Any chance you have the Earthquakes game against the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers where George Best scored this goal?

I attended that game with my youth team.

Thanks. I've been working on building this collection for a long time.

Yes, I have that great George Best game. It's on my web site. If you
scroll down to 1981 you'll see it. Just send me an email:

I am friends with Ron Newman, who coached George Best in Ft. Lauderdale. Ron says that George Best was a really unpleasant guy to have around. Best was always drunk. George Best once said "if the ocean was made of alcohol, I'd drink it."

^ ^ What did Ron think of Gerd Mueller? I believe their time in Ft. Lauderdale overlapped. I think he also had Nene Cubillas there as well.

He never said anything about Muller or Cubillas, so I assume he got along with them.

Once Ron Newman took George Best out of a game, and Best was so angry, he threw his jersey at him. After the game, a reporter asked Ron about the incident. Ron said "everyone wants a George Best jersey, and now I have one too."

I have friends who collect NASL jerseys. The Colorado Caribou jersey
is the hardest to find because it is so rare...
