Colin Bell - he could fly.
First time I saw him play for England.

Before that it was George Best

Junhinho and Gazza. Glad I got to see both in Boro shirts, even though Gazza didn't do all that much here.

I did see Best play once, but towards the end of his career. My era was Maradona and Cruyf really. Trevor Fancis, and Glen Hoddle in the English league.

First tournament I really remember is Euro 88.

At the time, I couldn't imagine anyone being better than Marco van Basten.

Makes me very sad to hear him say the glory years weren't worth the pain he now lives in.
