Was at that game. Sat on bucket seats at the back of the old north terrace, was a miserable horrible wet windy day. We were funting it long to Cascarino and some colourful character called Mickey Evans and getting nowhere with it. In the second half the Romanian goalie sliced his goal kick and it must have gone 100 feet in the air before spinning out to the touchline where Hagi was stood with the same wind and rain in his face as we had.

He killed it stone dead with one touch on his instep.

Small moment, but I can't recall ever being as impressed with a piece of skill in a soccer match before or since.

All I can remember is him being way out

And yes it lit up a dull day!

Great player

Very classy player of the type you don't often see in the hustle and bustle obsessed premier league. He lit up USA '94 - that Romanian team in general was fantastic.

I saw Stoichkov play for Chicago Fire 11 years ago. I was out there on the J1 and we went down to watch them play Colorado. Carlos Valderama was playing for Colorado - orange afro on show. Standard was shite. Score was 0-0 in the second half. Stoichkov came off the bench and bollocked everyone who misplaced a pass. Real fucking and blinding and pointing fingers in their faces. Then he scored. Then he fucked some young lad out of it again and went off to stand on the sideline.

Brilliant.

No shit, I was at that game too! John Spencer formerly of Chelsea was with Colorado at the time. Beasley who went on to play for Man City and Glasgow Rangers was brilliant for Chicago.

Bring back the iron curtain, I say. Eastern European football hasn't been the same since the late 80s.
