Inter Milan 1982 - No.9 Altobelli.


Nicknamed Spillo - 'Needle' - for his slender build, Alessandro Altobelli was one of the most effective Italian strikers of the late 1970s and 1980s. Following spells at Latina and Brescia, he was signed by Internazionale in 1977, for whom he played 466 times, scoring 209 goals in an eleven year spell.

He was instrumental in the club's 1980 Scudetto and two Coppa Italia's in that golden era for the Nerazzurri.
Altobelli spent the 1988/89 season with Juventus before ending his career in Serie B again with Brescia the following season.

Parma 1999 - No.9 Crespo.


Hernan Crespo had a difficult start to his career with Parma having left River Plate in 1996. He failed to score in his first six months at the club and was routinely booed with head coach Carlo Ancelotti coming in for much criticism for keeping faith with the selection of Crespo. His faith was, however, vindicated: the young Argentine went on to score 12 times in 27 matches in his first Serie A season and Parma finished runners-up to Juventus.

Newcastle United 1984 - No.8 Beardsley.


The pacey, incisive and skillful forward was an instant hit with the Newcastle supporters, scoring and setting up spectacular goals from the moment he stepped onto St. James Park. He formed an exciting strike partnership with Kevin Keegan, in his final season as a player, and their goals helped Newcastle to promotion to the top flight. Beardsley's career would have echoes of that enjoyed by Keegan and both can be considered Tyneside legends.

After returning from the 1986 World Cup, Beardsley helped a struggling Newcastle to avoid relegation, before Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish made a national record £1.9 million offer. Manager Willie McFaul accepted and Beardsley was on his way to Merseyside after four seasons on Tyneside which had brought a total of a 61 goals in 147 appearances.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson revealed in his autobiography that he had made a bid for Beardsley, but McFaul had rejected the offer.
Beardsley would return to Newcastle later in his career, signed by Keegan, and nearly captained them to the title only to be pipped by Manchester United in 1996.
