A very good player in the Ipswich Town team late 70's early 80's.
Bloody hell - only two years older than me. He could put himself about when he had to, but was much more of a footballer than the average 70's clogger.
Aye had everything, fucked with injuries though, 64 is no age to go
Remember him playing for Ipswich and England.
Very good player
This totally. Grew up watching him , great player for Ipswich. RIP, big shock and very sad news.
rip mate, remember him well. tawtft.
Cumbria's finest export RIP
Bobby Robson said he was England's greatest player. Sad that he was on Income Support & got done for benefit fraud bit of a contrast to today's top footballers.
Beattie sorry for 'silly mistake'
Did the football scenes for Michael Caine in Escape to Victory.
Not a lot of people know that.
Who knows what he could have achieved if not for persistent injuries.
Saw him limp off playing for Boro v Mags 83/84ish after Malcolm Allison took a punt on him.
RIP. Very good player in his day when football meant something to the players and not just the money. Ipswich had a great team under Sir Bobby
RIP Great player for Ipswich
Yes he was completely knackered by the time he played for us but you could still see that he'd been top class.
For those not quite old enough to remember him, think Paul McGrath or Ledley King. All top class defenders who could have been even better if it wasn't for injuries.
He was struggling with his knees when he played for us. Every now and then he would have a game where you would see what a tremendous player he was.
Good player, RIP owld fella.
Missed the closing stages of the 1977 season after burning his face pouring petrol on a fire in his garden. Ipswich ended up just missing out on the title.
