Jamo - The general is as all Generals are - too portly to roam the green baize of the footy pitches anymore - although he tells me most days that he could still cut it - so long as it is a small pitch lol.

I can remember several keepers shorter than Scoffy and Jamo and even shorter than Toyer

none of the three above appear to get exposed for their lack of inches - in fact they deal with high balls better then many of their taller counterparts. But all are superb shot stoppers - Scoffy has a great penalty save record - dont have the stats - but my perception is that he has saved just as many as the ones that have gone in - the only drawback he has is that probably he is the one that has given the penalty away - The numpty

But it is funny to see Scoffy in team pics - he always tries to position himself between the tallest players in the side.
