A great character who played for Liverpool FC during the 70s (I think) and captained the England soccer team for a period as well.
A funny guy, seemed like a gentleman as well. Thoughts to the family and friends.

that would be the reason as to why i didnt know whom he was.... sounds like a champ RIP
I'm slightly too young to remember "Crazy Horse" in his pomp, but think I can just recall him lifting the League Cup when he was Wolves captain. Off the top of my head they played Nottingham Forest. About 1980?
He's probably best remembered for being the slightly over-excitable team captain on "A Question of Sport" (which for non-UK readers is a BBC telly prog where two teams of sportsman answer questions on sport, the clue's in the title!) . I can still picture him saying "I know this, I know this" in his curiously high-pitched (for a burly centre-half) voice as David Coleman (host) hurried him for an answer.
Poor guy'd been ill for a while. RIP.

"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

If anyone wishes to convince me that any sport like Rugby, AFL, etc. is better than Footie then go ahead. You'll fail.
Does it really make much difference?Originally Posted by marc71178
Personally I like to call it football, but when I talk about it to non-like minded people, Ialways use soccer so they always know wwhat I'm talking about.
