    I suppose I can be classed as an auld c*nt and I remember too well just how great a player he was. My favourite memories of him was his goals against Man Utd and the one against the huns. My seat is right behind the goal in the Lisbon Lions stand and I swear I thought his shot against the huns was flying bye the left hand post but it swerved and dipped right into the back of the net. Lovely. So tell your m8 that he was as good, if not better, than the highlight reel looks

    amazing player, one of the best foreign players ever to play for us

    always wanted him to play centrally but strachan liked him wide right at least thats how i remember things im probably wrong, im wrong a lot these days lol

    the game against the huns when he scored that worldy was he played centrally in that game or did he just come inside for a wee while

    Naka was genuinely our best player since Henke in my opinion, was silky smooth and the opposition tried to boot him but he just got on with it.

    Don't think I've seen another player that can make a free kick seem like a penalty.

    And a free kick was more of a cert than a Naka penalty as well :56:
