Parents?? Eek, I remember John McGinlay playing!

My mum is the football supporter and was all about Derek Dooley; 63 goals in 63 games for Sheffield Wednesday and remembers exactly where she was when the news came through that he had broken his leg in a match. Tragically, he lost his leg to gangrene.

Mainly the great German footballers and world champions from the 70s when they were teenagers:

Beckenbauer, Maier, Gerd Müller, Overath, Netzer and Hoeneß.

International players they liked:

Pele, Keegan (especially my mother when he played for HSV in the 80s), Lineker and Johan Micoud (former player for Werder Bremen).

That is everything I know about their favorite players. I am sure they had more in the past, but these were the ones who my parents told me.
