Voted a member of the best team in the 1978 World Cup, taken from all the players who had taken part.

Signed for the Blues thar summer , & has been universally accepted as one of top ten worst foreign signings ever in this country.

Funny old game...

Remember the tic a tac when he scored against Bristol City. Fab red hot atmosphere on a cold day.

Was it him that took Stevie Coppell out with an elbow right in front of the ref and then did a "who me"

Mind is getting a bit vague

I remember him going into the crowd to confront a fan who was having a go at him. In the paddocks against Wolves if memory serves. Years before Cantonas Kung fu kick at Palace.

He was a disaster. Never stayed in position and marked his man. Thought he could just charge around the pitch as he pleased.

There was a story doing the rounds after he left us. A reporter asked him why he joined Birmingham City. He replied "They tell me that they good team. They lie"
