A brief foray into an area tenuously linked to investing, but footballing numismatics will enjoy it...

When Ulster Bank put George Best on it.

Some North American readers may be labouring under the assumption that Freddie Adu, fine young fellow he may be, is the original child footballing prodigy. Let the clip below disabuse you.

Bring your Pelés, Cruyffs and Maradonas, stick them in the Northern Ireland team this man had to play in and then make your comparisons.

    hello from germany,

    great clip.

    until i saw this i always thought that george was only a left footer.

    as famous as his play are his quotes.

    I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered

    I've stopped drinking, but only while I'm asleep.

    I totally agree.....does anyone seriosuly think Pele, Cruyff and Maradonna could play as well as Best whilst suffering from a hangover and dealing with bad haircuts?

    Ok, maybe Maradonna could compete on the bad haircut front!
