Excellent listen for fans of my era. He has an amazing memory so clearly heading all those balls hasn’t done him any harm.

The fact that our record appearance holder refers to us as Blackburn throughout perhaps means we make too big a deal of it on here.

It’s rare to find any ex player that says ‘Rovers’, possibly due to the fact ‘Rovers’ isn’t ubiquitously this club, unlike ‘United’ (well, it isn’t, but is!) or ‘Forest’ and the likes of Faz have travelled extensively as a coach, but it is also very rare for our east Lancs fans not to refer to the club in that way to each other.
