Fantasy moments created by football and footballers – is there anything quite like it? The thrill of it being a game of two halves, with ups and downs, trials and tribulations and the sheer pleasure that arises when you pull that shirt on and achieve your goals, as balls hit the back of the net.

But, as I say, it’s a game of two halves and amid the ecstasy of finding these photo in the archives, I experienced the agony and found a picture of Gary Speed at his signing for Everton. What a wonderful guy he was.  What sadness. I will treasure your signed shirt forever Gary.
