And don't also forget that a gang of skinheads chased a young, long-haired Charlie Nicholas away from Molineux to the rail station where he was never seen again afterwards. :-)

Norman Hunter gone to the virus, RIP Norman a feared committed player from a distant era.

Imagine the havoc he would wreak on todays Shakespearian divas currently purporting to be footballers.

From a time when men looked like men, and those that didn't were women.

He played for a team I hated, but Norman Hunter, was a good player and a good guy who didn't deserve to be taken by a cowardly virus.

Sometimes its better to say nothing. Not sure many people of a certain age in the northern hemisphere will mourn his passing away due to the 'highlight' of his career which he never failed to enjoy or admit.

I am of a certain age..I have no love for him.
He was many things, but he was unquestionably a great player.

He was indeed a great player at his chosen sport but like Lance Armstrong he became too flawed in my opinion to be classed as a true sporting great.
To become a great I feel that the participant has to have an ambassadorial quality, players such as Cruyf, Beckenbaur, Bobby Charlton, Bobby Moore, Pele, Platini, Messi, Eusebio those sort of players, Maradonna falls into the category of the likes of Zidane, Gascoigne, Best, Henry etc.

I actually saw him play against England at Wembley in 1980 where we beat them. That was my first ever England game and to be completely honest I went there to gaze at the likes of him and the remnants of that beautiful side that won the world cup only two years previous, I was dissapointed yet elated at the result though :?:

A very good player but was never a team player as his skillsets made him a lone wolf maverick sort of player. For me, George Best was the greatest player that I saw play live on the field, I did not see Stan Matthews otherwise it may have been different. Sorry indeed that he has passed on but in my time and generation, his blatant cheating with "The Hand of God" I just cannot forget nor forgive.
