    Dave Mackay gets to grips with Billy Bremner

    I wish we had a player like Mackay now, he who would not allow the mamby pamby fairies of today lose games like Wigan.

    Times have changed, the last player I've seen with his sort of grit was Roy Keane

    We need a player like joey barton, yes i fookin said it joey barton. Hes a twat, hes a gimp, hes a pr*ck, but he can play pretty football, or ugly football when it matters. Never backs out from challenges, and scores some nice goals, and creates some good passes.

    yeah he did, but i meant like, we need players of his attitude, not assaulting wise, but hes got balls to go in every tackle as hard as he can, never backs out.

    Dave Mackay was 'ard as nails .

    They just don't make 'em like that anymore .

    EDIT: George Best said he was the hardest man he ever played against , and certainly the bravest .

    EVERY team could do with a player like Dave Mackay!

    But how many of those come along in a generation?

    Think the closest player to anyone like that in my time has to be Vinnie Jones . . . . and isn't he suppose to be a Yiddo? He does cameo appearances in everything else, why not a Spurs shirt once in a while! ;)

    If that happened nowdays, Bremner would have dropped to the ground holding his face.

    Man, how the game has changed.
