Desert Island Kicks

“Desert Island Kicks” is a pale imitation of the legendary “Desert Island Discs” format. I’m looking to nab answers from footie fans from all corners of the globe and all walks of life.

You’re stranded on a desert island, what footballing memories would you take with you? I want you to pick a game, shirt, goal, player and piece of turf from a stadium to take with you to a desert island, oh and you’re allowed one luxury too.

GAME: We’ll allow you to take the recording of one game of your choice.

SHIRT: Choose wisely, the vomitty old Arsenal away kit might attract wasps.

GOAL:  Same as the game basically

PLAYER: We’re not as harsh as DID, you can share the island with a player (and we allow ghosts). Hint: Edmundo could be a good hunter, Yakubu could make a good raft, and Leo Messi  would be great at shinning up coconut trees.

PIECE OF TURF: eg. “The Euro ’96 penalty spot that Gareth Southgate missed from, so I can practice taking pens…successfully”

LUXURY: eg. A Mitre Fluo Flare …OR… Floodlights …OR… A ghillie suit in Everton colours

The game i would take a recoring of is millwall’s 4-1 mothers day massacare of west ham would never get bored watching christian dailly score an own goal!!
I would have to take tim cahills shirt from 04-04-04 old trafford vs sunderland he scored the winner that sent millwall into fa cup final.
The goal has to be neil harris’s goal at watford after hes come back from testicular cancer 5000 millwall crowded into an away end every millwall player running up to celebrate that goal of a 4-1 drubbing
The player of my choice is going to have to be kammy would not get bored listening to him just saying unbelivable jeff.
The piece of turf would be defo a peice of the old wembley even though i had never been the new wembley will never create an atmosphere as the old.
my luxury item would be a dvd player that never run out of battery to watch the west ham game over and over
