Just heard Alan Mullery emotionally talking about him. He was trying to be so nice about him as he obviously thought the world of him. But his main points were that he constantly went round putting challenges in that would get him sent off in todays game, was a massive show off, and was extremely rude and disrespectful to his opponents even if they were mates!

Yeah, I heard that too. Probably due to the fact though, that back in the days when he was playing, you had to almost cut someone in half just to get a yellow card. I wonder how long the likes of Dave, Tommy Smith, Chopper Harris, Bobby Cumming etc would last these days.

It would also be interesting to compare the amount of red cards in one season of the late 60's, early 70's to the amount of red cards in the Premiership last season.

RIP Dave.

I saw him play for Spurs and he was immense in midfield, the perfect foil for Danny Blanchflower. When he went to Derby I thought he was past it but Clough knew what he was doing and Mackay was brilliant as a defender. He made Roy McFarland into a top class centre half as well.

Lovely memories of the man. There is an iconic photo of Dave Mackay grasping Billy Bremner by the shirt front and giving him some friendly words of advice!
