An arrogant man for sure and one who should have done more with his talent, but like all flawed sports stars compelling to watch and always entertaining. Will always be remembered in the game.

Remember seeing him around 10 years in ago a dodgy watering hole in Manchester surrounded by dodgy hangers on (shaven headed knucklescrapers in baseball caps all). He looked gaunt and thin as a rake then and was still drinking and smoking.

A real shame he couldn't sort his life out.

Sadly he never did much to help himself and always blamed others. I remember one press conference in which he blamed Maggie Thatcher for his dip in form. The evil cow.
