    Penalty Record  (SO)  T 1 SC 1



    A utility defender capable of playing at left back or in the centre of defence he  prompted varied opinions wherever he played the game. An intelligent man who played the game with care and comprehension he could dominate in the air and was mobile and strong enough. Consistency was his failing  but Roy Hodgson believed in him sufficiently to pay a huge fee when he brought him to replace Henchoz. Two and a half years later his value had dropped by two thirds and even so it was some time before the West Ham supporters believed they had obtained a bargain. Despite the longevity of his career he remained a player of classical potential who never matured into the commanding figure he might have become. After retiring he gained a first class degree in Sports Science and became a personal trainer for athletes. He was engaged to train Dundee United on a part time basis, a club where his son Harvey (who was born in Blackburn) commenced playing for.
