I thought he was the "Butcher".RIP Razor. Gone too young struggled with alcohol addiction in the last few years.
Aye. "Razor" was "Razor Ruddock", a man so tough that he burst into tears when equalising for Liverpool against Man U in a 3-3 classic. Wilkins was a lovely footballer to watch, but it was almost as if his playing career was an apprenticeship for his career as a pundit. He was one of the few who made you feel that he was watching the same match you were watching.It probably was the butcher.
I just call every Ray, razor, except D'Arcy no explanation needed.
A gentleman by all accounts too.
One of those comedy gold moments watching grey haired Reid, probably a bit on the flabby side for a pro-footballer, huff and puff his way out of the centre circle, as Maradona galloped, Gazelle like, into the English penalty box, to seal his place in ligindary wendy ball lore.Did he not come on as a sub? But yeah, he wasn't one of the defenders left behind by Maradona. That was Peter Reid, Terry Fenwick, Steve Hodge, Peter Beardsley & Terry Butcher I think.
