I was so unimpressed when we signed him, an ordinary winger for Chelsea. And then converted to full back, effectively replacing Gidman.

Thank goodness Saunders saw what I couldnít. Not the first time Iíve been wrong, and certainly not the last.

Happy Birthday Kenny. And thank you.

Same here and what a right back he transformed into. Great player.
Happy Birthday, King Kenny of Birkenhead.

Happy birthday Kenny Swain.
The combination of Kenny and Des Bremner on the right flank was brilliant.

Used to take his dry-cleaning to the shop in Dorridge where my mom worked - she got my European Cup final programmes signed by him.

Whenever anybody mentions someone being a "Rolls Royce" of a player, he always springs to my mind. A languid easiness to his play not seen matched in his position in claret & blue since.

 70. Jesus, that makes me feel old. Happy birthday.

Legend.

Exactly. Saw him play in 82 and most of the FB we have had since then wouldnít be up to tying his shoe laces.

A god!
