Probably would have got a hatful of tries, one of those annoying buggers who is good at any sport.

Alvin Kallicharran, not often touted as a great, but IMO it extends beyond the field of play, nice bloke.

my dad say viv richards (i think) - i'm a bit too young to remember viv, lara is my fave - it's a tired old cliche but i genuinely found him a joy to watch, so elegant and graceful yet ferocious and destructive

your dad is right it has to be Isaac Vivian Alexander Richards,an absolute butcher of bowlers, and not the most sensitive time to mention this but never wore a helmet only his county or countries cap.also built like a boxer and incredible timing and saw the ball so early.ask any bowler if they liked bowling to him :lol:

Each to their time mate. AB makes runs quicker than a quick thing with shots the great Pollock never dreamed possible. Bats, balls and training all different now, so hard to compare.

Daley was picked in a Times shortlist today along with Coe, Redgrave, Wiggins, Hoy, Ellen MacArthur and Botham plus a few others who wouldn't be in my list (Charlton, Murray and Gareth Edwards) with Ennis-Hill being a potential candidate.

Daley's still my choice.

I liked the tabloid stories back in the day, of Daley, bed-hopping, and having to climb out of windows and leg it, from furious husbands.

Andy Murray is the greatest British sportman in my lifetime.

Daley Thompson and Mo Farah are right up there.

Jimmy Connors is my favourite sportsman of all time.

Said this a while back. And Andy Murray is probably my favourite sportsman of all time. Many others have come along at times to try and steal me, the likes of Kevin Pietersen have tried to steal my heart, and perhaps the likes of Joe Root may be a contender, but for me Andy Murray will always have it.

I asked my students the other week for the their five favourite sporting moments of all time - those five favourite moments that would always bring a smile to their face. Murray winning the US Open in 2012 is in there for me, and him winning the Davis Cup comes pretty close to being in there,just edged out by Stuart Broad's 8-15 at Trent Bridge

Strange choice Jimmy Connors.

Didn't like unions, didn't take his defeat by Ashe in 75 with good grace, was a mommas boy in the extreme. But did have an extra ordinary two handed backhand.

I would have thought from that era Bjorn Borg would gain the majority vote, his records in major events his percentage wins still stand up to all competitors through to this day.

Andy Murray would have 10 Slams by now if he was born 10 years earlier, or at any other point in tennis history.

There's usually high quality in any decade would Murray have beaten the young Federer or John McEnroe at his best.

Would Murray have beaten Pete Sampras on the grass at Wimbledon. Or even Andre Agassi or Rafael Nadal.

Sampras at Wimbledon would have been tough for sure, I still think Andy has a more powerful game though, I think he'd have taken a couple off him.

Agassi was beatable, his game was either brilliant (unbeatable) or decent (beatable) but certainly not Nadal or Djok or Feds at their peak.

McEnroe again was brilliant at times but still beatable.

McEnroe again was brilliant at times but still beatable.


Murray might not have beaten Sampras on grass every year (certain he would have a couple of times), but I reckon he'd have beaten Sampras, Courier, Agassi, Becker (at the end of his career), Krajicheck, Korda, Rafter, Kafelnikov, Safin, Johannsen, Hewitt and Roddick who all won the US Open or Australian Open during that period.

Murray is very unlucky that he hasn't just come up against one all time greats, who have basically each tied up one tournament:
Australian Open - no one has more than Djokovic's six titles
French Open - Nadal's nine titles is the record
Wimbledon - no one has more than Federer's seven titles

That doesn't leave many tournaments to win... The fact that Murray played in this era and is 13th of all time for the number of finals reached says a lot

The playing services in Australia and America have changed through the decades before this present era which gave individuals with distinctive qualities an advantage.


The match up I would like to see would be Rod Laver against Andy Murray, Now that would prove tasty on many levels.

What I would say about Murray is tactically he is as bright as a button, can think of many British sportsmen with equal thought patterns.

I guess the death of Arnold will pass a lot of folk by, not comprehending how much influence and how much change he brought to World sport.

Really sad day.

So many things seem to pass people by, now..but is that our age, or people's ignorance??

Arnie was one of "the big three" in that golfing generation.. All icon's

I look at Jimmy Hill and think in the early sixties he must have been influenced by Arnold and Mark McCormack
Visionary.
