Video of the Week: Carlos Alberto’s Phoenix From The Flames

Yes, another “Phoenix” segment. Sorry. I like them.

I don’t know why this one has lingered in my consciousness for as long as it has – whether it’s Alberto’s mock umbrage at the “Pele was shite” section, the stereotype Italians, Baddiel’s James Richardson impression or the late, great Jeff Astle declaring that “My wife can be Pele!” But whatever the reason, it’s definitely one of my favourites.
