The Talented Mr Shillinde

There are stories that just make you laugh out loud when reading them.

One day I hope they make a film about The Legend of Bobby Shillinde. It’s a great story that will warm the cockles of your heart, and make you believe in the magic of football once again.

If anybody in Botswana ever spots Mr Shillinde, please get a photo and an autograph!

“Sport is supposed to be the purest form of meritocracy (except when you have to be able to afford a show jumper or whatever to do it). And these days, even middling competition has so many checks and balances that it’s impossibly hard for even a committed chancer to game the system. Very occasionally, though, someone slips momentarily through the net, and I am indebted to the AFC Wimbledon fanzine Wise Men Say for drawing my attention to a spellbinding football tale.”

About Ticha Pfupajena

I'm beginning to get the sense that my career as a professional footballer may not happen. As a result, I'll try write about football and sports instead....
