Sad news indeed. He was a colossus of a player... one of the very best I've ever seen play for us. I'd slot him easily alongside Smithy, Doyle, Bluto, Sergei, Huthy, and Ryan Shawcross as a great centre half. Wish we'd got him now.
Very, very sad news. He was a true giant of a player. And THAT goal against Southampton The ball would still be in orbit if it hadn't been for the net.
All the best, Dave!
Great footage that is & was an awesome strike from Watson, pity it never earnt us the draw. I managed to acquire that pale blue away Umbro shirt (match worn) years ago & it's one of my most prized piece of Potters Merchandise. What a squad Southampton had back then, Keegan, Ball, Channon etc..
