    You know I think is funny? I always read "LBNo11" as a reference to Luis Boa Morte.

    ...I forgive you, Boa could me a dream to behold - now and again, Les Barrett, who wore the number 11 shirt was a constant source of skill, class, talent. I wish you could have all seen him play through my eyes, you would have appreciated his football...
