Norman Hunter RIP
« on: April 18, 2020, 21:25:24 »
Norman was an absolute legend, and a star every opposing club feared in his heyday. His style would never be allowed now. A real hard man on the pitch.

Rest in Peace and thanks for the memories, even though you were not a City man.

I loved watching him play.

Really before my time. When his name comes up I remember the video of him fighting with Franny Lee. You never see proper punches thrown on pitches these days. Of course there is much more to him than this but it is worth a watch. RIP.
