and the best one in my opinion was Beattie who should've been a Liverpool player.

Do you remember Bryan Robson, Captain Fantastic for Sir Bobby's England and Man Utd? He could just sneak into the box and score important goals.

Now compare his strike rate with John Wark's, and tell me that Warkie wasn't the best we had.

Wark was superb. The whole team were superb. I assume you know the Beattie story and why we were lucky he wasn't a Liverpool player. He was my boyhood Ipswich hero.

Very different times. Many players played most matches in a season. Only 1 sub on the bench. The matches were a lot slower (albeit pitches heavier).

It is odd that with bigger squads players are paid astronomically higher wages. So much has changed in the game.

Bryan Robson scored the only goal on my first game at PR (my first ever match).

My son and daughter got to see 4 different scorers on their first ever match - Edwards, Danny Graham, Bradley Dack and Edun.

Sir Bobby disagreed with you. He reckoned Ronaldo was the second best player he ever managed and Kevin Beattie was the best.

I'll take his word even above yours.

Agreed. I've always been told it was either 14 players in 13 years or 13 players in 14 years?

Yes, but tell the young 'uns.

Hilarious when you compare it with the story of the potential Roy Keane signing turning up with WAG with dog in handbag.

And the emphasis has changed from footballers to athletes. I mean, some of these modern footballers don’t even drink, smoke or eat pies!! And that’s just at half time.

I'm sure I read somewhere that at his peak Beattie was paid £360 a week!!!
