one of the dirtiest playrs to grace the game?

Anyone care to guess who the footballing fraternity (ex pros) consider this to be. I once had a chat with Mickey Burns and he claimed that Souness was absolutely filthy. But it is not Souness, nonetheless I am sure he'd be up there.

Once heard Alan 'Sniffer' Clarke's name mentioned in despatches on this one.

I think players were dirtier in years gone by before the TV coverage we have now.

Of recent players Keane and Shearer are in the top few I would think.

No. And it's not that QPR fullback we nearly signed years ago (can't remember his name)

I've read in a few books that Pele wasn't averse to putting it about a bit.

He can't put it about these days without one of his little blue pills.

Hickton has it. Ask Jack Charlton who also can speak for Bobby Moore .... he was one dirty toughest centre forwards to play against. Moore would always come off against any Brazil game black and blue.

Lefty3668 Posted on 24/7 10:25
re: one of the dirtiest playrs to grace the g

I suspect he was a lot dirtier post 1962 than before it.

hicktonspenaltyrunup Posted on 24/7 10:29
re: one of the dirtiest playrs to grace the g

I'm sure I once read he nutted Billy Bremner in a game- mind, he was probably part of a (dis)orderly queue.

Can I cyber award myself a pub lunch as a prize??

Bryan Robson was a nasty nasty peice of work, luckily he wore a ManUre shirt and was allowed to run up to a ref screaming "but I'm the england captain!!"
I believe to did a short course for Mary Poppins on this very skill.

You can have a cyber smoked bacon buttie with lashings of brown sauce and a healthy splattering of black pepper. Enjoy!

I was surprised he had such an bad reputation - only found this out recently.

Sounds good to me- I'll let you know how it was.
I'm drooling already.....

Ray Hankin was an animal - but to be dirty and discrete takes great skill.

Iain Baird was also dirty (but we liked it)

JOHN FASHANU AWOOGA!!! he was dirty he used to elbow drop everyone!! nearly killed gary Mabbutt once

joseph99 Posted on 24/7 11:17
re: one of the dirtiest playrs to grace the g

Justin Fashanu was even dirtier - especially when tackled from behind....

I can't believe Nobby Stiles' name has not been thrown into the ring yet.

What a nasty piece of work on the footy field.

Bobby Kerr once told me the dirtiest player he ever played against was Johnny Giles.

I was told Duncan Mckenzie could look after himself and is a very funny after dinner speaker.
