These Blues fans have been taking part in a rather quirky debate on social media.
‘The streets will never forget’.
It’s a phrase that has become incredibly common amongst football fans these days, mainly used to talk about players that aren’t quite in the same stratosphere as the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the best players in the world. Indeed, they’re usually quite a few rungs below those guys, but they did enough to gain our attention for a while.
It’s usually reserved for one-season wonders from many seasons back and used to give fans a little sense of nostalgia. Although personally I think it’s done purely so fans can show off their knowledge by naming an obscure player so they can say ‘you’re not a fan if you don’t know that guy’, but that might just be the cynic in me talking.
What would you rather happen to finish the season?
Games behind closed doors, finish ASAP
Wait until fans are allowed into grounds
Whatever you think of the phrase, it still caused great debate amongst Blues fans on Twitter when @tpfo_football posed the question, as they discussed who their notable players were in this particular category.
Chris Burke and Ravel Morrison can definitely be added on to this list. Federico Macheda too

Macheda literally kept us up he scored something like 11 goals in half a season I think

Olivier Kapo and Kiko Macheda two names that spring to mind.
