Some of my best Quinn moments.
Play off equaliser for 1-1. I was right behind Summerbee when he took the corner, the LOUDEST noise I've heard in my life.
Delicious chip vs Port Vale from outside the box
Last goal for SAFC, a late winner vs Derby in March. If we hadn't have won we would have gone down
Thanks niall for a wonderful service on and off the pitch of sunderland fc. You are a true legend, a top footballer and a gentleman! Godd luck for the future and hope that you continue to change sunderland afc for the better.
Thanks for all you've done Niall, your a true legend at Sunderland and we'll never forget everything you've achieved, your loyalty to the club, and the truly amazing partnership you and Kev mastered. Somehow it wont feel the same without you, but im sure you wont stay too far away. i wish you all the best in the future, thanks for the great memories.
The wife & me bumped into him once (literally) just before a game outside the SOL.
She was in such a rush to speak to him that she nearly knocked the poor bloke flying. She apologised, but the great man being himself, he insisted it was his fault & couldn't apologise enough.
Too many great memories, but if I was pushed I would say his double aginst Spurs at the Sol, when he made Sol Campbell look a right tattie, will stick out in my mind.
It is an honour to have such a fine man and a gentleman associated with S.A.F.C and the city of sunderland.
You will never be forgotten and will forever be a legend in the history of Sunderland Association Football Club.
Best of luck in your retirement.
I feel priveleged to have been an SAFC fan since 1962. In that time many great players have turned out - Charlie Hurley, Jim Baxter, Colin Todd, Dave Watson, Dennis Tueart, SKP et al - but the greatest in my view is Big Niall, a true gent, a top player, a legend.
Thanks Niall for helping to restore the pride in our great club.
