I went for Alfie Conn in #1 which was daft, given the dates
Second was deciding which of the players who were involved to pick, got the correct man.
Third was a no go.

Got the first one, vaguely remember the kebab shop incident but couldn't put a name to it. Hadn't a scooby on the last one. Keep them coming OP, good threads. Cheers.

Any know of Souness was good as a teenager? Good enough to be a Spurs starter?
Spurs had Ralph Coates, Alan Mullery, Steve Perryman and Martin Peters in midfield,
and had John Pratt, Jimmy Neighbour and Jimmy Pearce as back up.
A teenage Souness was not even close to displacing them, hence the reason he made only 1 sub appearance whilst at Spurs, and was sold to Second Division Middlesboro.

Where can i read more about this?
I think I read that in Souness' autobiography probably in the 80s. He was quite candid about the fact that he saw himself as a first team player at Spurs despite the thoughts of the management. He demanded a move for 1st team football and ended up at Ayresome Park. Think the book was called 'No half measures'.
