Weekend Geezer

Who would have thought this guy could have been a professional footballer. He scored 228 goals in 515 games for a variety of teams, but he's this weekend's geezer because he loved a goal on the opening day of the season.

Mickey Quinn scored 4 for Newcastle against Leeds back in 1989-90, but is probably more memorable for his hat-trick for Coventry against Arsenal at Highbury on the opening day of the 1993-94 season.

Fat Mickey (as he was affectionately known) never looked like a footballer, and is now a horse racing commentator, which seems far more fitting.
