Focus On... David Poza Calderón

Football nostalgia, as we all know, is a joy and a delight for all of us that prefer The Beautiful Game the way it used to be. Yet for all the innocent pleasure it brings us, someone, somewhere is usually working hard and for little credit to maximise all the happiness we feel.

One such person is David Poza Calderón. You may not know him by name, but you may well have seen the fruits of his labours, for David is the man who diligently compiles the On This Day videos that appear regularly on YouTube.

If you love watching great goals scored during the 1960's, 70's and 80's, David's FootballGaffesGalore account is the one to visit often. Meantime, why not get to know David a little better by studying his Football Attic 'Focus On' profile...
