I love this fella. We can wax about whether he was a great footballer or not, and yes he had limitations, but how rare is it in the modern age for a footballer who wasn't even treated that well here by a number of managers to still come out the other side showing gratitude and love to the club and the fans? You rarely get it even from the players who owe a great deal to Aston Villa for where they are now / where they finished their careers.

Clearly a man with a lot of heart and a great attitude, and if we had more like him we'd be much more stable.

Anyway - thank you Alan. May you have a long and happy retirement. Hope we bump into each other around VP some time so I can thank you in person.

I echo the above.

Good stuff.  The way he fought back from the bomb squad and consistently forced his way back into the team under a number of managers is what I admire most.  100% every single game.

A Villa legend, always gave 100%, his goal against Blues is something I'll never forget.

Thanks Alan and happy retirement
