I like Peter Reid as well. The lived-in face and physique more like a truck driver than a professional footballer. Micky Quinn as well. You don't see footballers like that anymore.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.
I liked Reid, but, it was obvious he was a "make that a supersize guv" type. Loved his Mum's cooking so much, that his lunch break during training was spent at her gaf, eating some home made pie, and downing a cuppa.
