Gary McAllister - The Hop Leeds

After enduring about 1.5 hours of our works Christmas do I thought enough was enough so I sneaked away and went on my own to the Hop to watch a band that I know.

Got talking to an old rugby mate for a while who after about 30 minutes nudged me and said you know who that is standing directly in front of me. I didn't as his back was turned to me. It was none other than Gary Mac. Out with a load of his mates he blended in nicely with all us middle aged blokes. A couple of lads decided they wanted a selfie with him which he professionally obliged. All in all I was very impressed - just a bloke out having a few beers. Which of course is what he is.

Earlier in the evening I'd also bumped into Robbie Burrow but I never saw him as he is so small he must have gone through my legs.

What a privilege having him at our club, especially as a player. Great to hear he seems sound as well.  7/10 plus a half for Robbie Burrows

Legend in these parts as well through his associations with Coventry and Leicester.

Part of the best midfield i've ever seen at ER.

Yes but you're a young un.

Image required for top marks, 6/10.

Listen Sheeps t'old lad - the fact that I wasn't one of those middle age knob heads who wanted a selfie with Gary Mac should score me higher

Saw GM at Wetherby Races the other week. He was keeping company with one of the bigshot's from the Irish Bookmakers Boylesports. Looked like he might be on some freebie. Looked like the bookie was hosting him, pointing out horses to him in the parade ring. I think GM lives in Boston Spa so local track for him I suppose.

No tips 1/10

Definitely a 10.
Late Doors

Very good

I thought so.

I have quite decent coverage of him:

This one is arguably the best of the bunch....



* Owns up to having a Coventry one too. *

Grind

Don't have an image to hand of the Coventry one.

* Probably just as well - I'd get serious abuse. *

It's hard to pick a favourite from the whole Batty, Strachan, McAllister and Speed midfield.

At the time, I would've definitely said Batty, but it almost depends on the day of the week these days.

Footballing perfection.

Lorimer Giles Bremner Gray

Batty would not have got a game in centre mid against the above two. Head and shoulder better footballers and scored the odd goal.
Frazier Cranium

I'd like to think though that Batty would have been good enough at least for Revie's Super Leeds squads as he'd have had more freedom on the pitch.  We rarely saw him venture forward never mind shoot as he was there as a 'water carrier' etc wasn't he?  He had a good strike on him but never used his left foot for owt but standing on.  The 60s and 70s game almost demanded players could kick well with both feet (not at the same time, obvs )

Strachan in place of Lorimer would have been interesting, Lash was accused of being lazy compared to most other Leeds players while Strachan's work-rate and leadership was a main reason he did so well at Leeds and why the team returned to the top.
