There was the centre-half who had physically destroyed so many No 9s that he was forced out of his own country (John McNamee), another who was called the Rock of Gibraltar because of his awesome, unsurmountable presence (Frank Brennan), and a third appropriately nicknamed Killer (Brian Kilcline).

He was even booked for arguing with his own goalkeeper at Celtic Frank Haffey!



John was brought to Newcastle as part of the biggest gamble of Joe Harvey's managerial career.

Big Frank never broke stride as he headed the cricket ball down and completed his run laughing all over his face.
