There’s Only One Phil Parkes…

“When a coincidence arises, don’t ignore it. Ask yourself, What is the message here? What is the significance of this? You don’t need to go digging for the answers. Ask the question, and the answers will emerge. They may arrive as a sudden insight, a spontaneous creative experience, or they may be something very different…”
– Deepak Chopra

Okay, so why were there two, unrelated English goalkeepers in the seventies both called Phil Parkes? The Wolves one and the QPR one, who later moved to West Ham for £500,000.

It always seemed to us to be the hugest coincidence in the Universe, but the Ancient Indian Vedas texts teach that there are no coincidences – they are messages and everything that occurs can be related to a prior cause or association.

Well, we’ve asked the question, so now we’ll wait for the answers to emerge…

While you are waiting you might as well order a copy of retro-footy-grumble-fest ‘Got, Not Got’ … you can get it from branches of WH Smith and Waterstones or online here

    Worse still for commentators when they both played for England at the same time!
