hewas on a grand a week last season stil, big wages for a league where only a few get over 500. (wasn't worth 100 btw!)

 

Great player on his day, loved watching him for norn iron too real heart on sleeve player.

 

Had a drink with him on a few occasions too and by all accounts is a top man, just has that mental northern irish thing going on, we all do!

My auntie used to work in the William Hill in central Newcastle and he was in there from open till finish some days blowing mental amounts of money, sometimes mortal making daft bets. By today's footballers wages the amounts were eye watering, but back then it must have been a weeks worth in a day.

All he needs to do is go to America, Australia or somewhere like that do some s*** pundit work get paid a bomb for it and he's sorted.

 

Could do well. We had Ian 'Dicko' Dickson, a Brum-supporting music mogul covering for the regular host of Matchday Saturday here in Oz. Totally defeats me why he was considered.

ive just read robbie savages book.

 

sounds like the coachs etc at man utd didnt try to stop his habit, he would nip out from training etc to put bts on for them.

he apparenlty once took their cash, didnt put the bet on because he thought it had no chance, it won and he had to pay it himself.
