Obits

Although right-footed Gerry Byrne played left-back, as did I. Unlike Byrne, however, a deficit of talent restricted my sole contribution to halting opposing forwards and returning the ball to my centre-half for distribution. Even this modest contribution on my part was frequently thwarted. …Speaking purely as a spectator, all of Liverpool’s players appeared hard back then, and not all of them fair – but then ‘love and war,’ as they say. Alzheimer’s and Wales: words none of us want to hear at the end. RIP the Crunch.
