The Football ‘Hard Man’

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Chelsea’s ‘Chopper Harris’ defined the hard man role.
He would even tackle his own Mother to stop a goal!
Liverpool had the ‘Anfield Iron’ Tommy Smith his name.
Those type of players are now missing from our game.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Don’t be kidded by their image, they knew how to play.
I would have those players in my team, anytime today.
Stuart ‘psycho’ Pearce, his nick name just says it all!
This player had the lot, and wow could he strike a ball!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Dave McKay, at 5 foot 7, a midfield general complete.
He won the double at Tottenham, then an historic feat.
Billy Bremner, once labelled as ’10 stone of barbed wire’
If only more players now days showed that much desire.
