  • Like you say, it's much.

  • You gotta try and think of something else.

  • Toe.

  • Occupy your brain.

  • Can you come out with it out of it with a difference?

  • Unfulfilled talent.

  • Grand.

  • What a nice party one.

  • Yeah, exactly.

  • You know, like we're talking about.

  • It's time for reflection, isn't it?

  • Could I could I would make the most of everything that I've done.

  • And I know that I really feel that happen in certain areas of my life.

  • Graham, what is that?

  • What do you think of when I say those words personally?

  • Yeah, Nothing Okay.

  • I got the most out of himself as a player.

  • Um, could have been a better professional.

  • No, not fill the last 70 years of career.

  • I don't think yeah could be more dedicated.

  • I don't I don't think it could.

  • And there were card games and trivia I gave.

  • I gave everything into management.

  • I think about my time again.

  • Because different munch If I had my chance again.

  • In what way?

  • So I'll be I'll be less aggressive, less harsh, less demanding on people.

  • Well, so late in my career, I realized a room could see my teachers I had to do.

  • Some people are more relaxed about it.

  • I, um you get frustrated by people who didn't appeared off that when all costs mentality and I would fall out with people over, Maybe.

  • Jimmy, You know J B word over the summer that when we work together, now that the work wasn't energy, did you, Jamie?

  • So yeah, I think really laughable.

  • I think we get to my age a za manager.

  • It's story.

  • Yeah, well, uh, I think you've got Look, watch Graham on sky.

  • Anybody at home?

  • Where?

  • No.

  • Where Graham is about as a person who demands Excellency wants to win, probably more than anyone any of any planet I saw him in.

  • And it was, I think it admit when it'll cost.

  • That's what that's what drove your money an incredible ability to do that.

  • As a manager, I think, um, grab, given my debut as a 17 18 year old Andi, you know that's the me is one of the great You see, you'll never forget that.

  • But I remember at times it fall out with people because they didn't care as much as he did.

  • And I could see the frustration on the last shower people.

  • And I'm sure if you have these time name.

  • I took a step back, maybe walked out the room.

  • But when you are that way, when you build like that is very difficult.

  • And I think the way the modern manager is now, I think you have to suck it up a lot more.

  • I think you have to walk away.

  • I think you have to bid totally different type of person because if you fight fire with fire nowadays, got no chance and I think he's got worse.

  • Probably even then, when Graham was managing in those days which states that Graham 100%.

  • I mean, I'm interested to hear what smart euros to see about your script.

  • So that imagine, he was shooting the firing and got upset when things weren't going well.

  • There will be slaughter point.

  • The finger of people's much right.

  • Oh, most definitely grand.

  • Yeah, he was.

  • He was old school.

  • Demanded your best every day of the week than mine about on Saturday.

  • Once he'd seen you best.

  • He wanted that again and again against he kept on pushing us.

  • Maybe in a way, that was Jamie.

  • Since you perhaps can't do so much these days.

  • But you certainly have my career.

  • Hey, taught me things Do is a striker himself there.

  • Good head of the ball.

  • So he develop my game.

  • But you know, it's if he if you didn't suit him talking about unfulfilled talent I was thinking about this too small.

  • Even the name came up that you might remember Graham because you broke his leg outlay.

  • Sicky Johnson.

  • Seiki Johnson?

  • Yes.

  • My records state that in May 1986 Scotland, the Iceland you broke his leg only saw that today, But he was a midfielder.

  • Rejoin Arsenal from Sheffield Wednesday.

  • Carmen.

  • Really?

  • Yeah.

  • He was a central midfield of that.

  • He was a very composed lot on the ball and he loved to get it up to the back four.

  • We love to, you know, Tony, Adam, Steve Old How did it go within 10 yards to demand it Now, George wasn't having that he didn't want not gonna build apply.

  • And he wanted He's midfielders to support.

  • May your poor Merson.

  • Whoever.

  • So he stopped and asked if he was a very talented fire.

  • Uh, you couldn't get in the team that he made eight appearances, so a couple of years or so, Um and he had a really bad back injury ist well, and he ended up actually retiring from football.

  • Uh, 91 of thinking Watson.

  • Eddie actually went back.

  • He prayed in Iceland and then fight to Don't do you 90.

  • He was a neighbor.

  • Crop top.

  • When I think of unfulfilled talent somebody that could have been a the top players like them Tickets.

  • None of these time the Everton player of this time use that kind of figure back in Iceland Got at 65 caps for his country, and it was a showing.

  • It it didn't work out some amount stolen that, you know, down to the gaffer.

  • Not not being his daughter.

  • No.

  • You George.

  • What would have seen him play?

  • Maybe thought it could change it for being someone who went into yeah, back from got the ball cheaply.

  • I mean, Liverpool better name for and is it called?

  • This is the navel of Claire was around 10.

  • I wouldn't disparage him here.

  • You know, these Don't be doing a sorry.

  • Okay.

  • Yeah, well, he said don't be doing Ah, honey.

  • Which meant he went into the back for unchallenged.

  • You got up, took a 56 yard pass turn around, and then you were faced with Jimmy 10.

  • The pleasure playing against They wanted you as George was promoting that time.

  • An arsenal.

  • You get off the front, you fight for the bits of midfield.

  • Get started from there on, that's where the game is changing dramatically these days, where you see it seems to be acceptable with me if you please go into the back for the term with a ball standing next to the center.

  • Us and the term of the ball and the no looking 11 players are playing against.

  • So if you factor in his own goal keeper is two centerbacks into full acts was six players, six players.

  • Now he's gotta find one of those players one another, five in amongst tend outfield players, opposition.

  • And they got weird attendant.

  • I mean, it's no, I could imagine Ryan Moran right now, Tony, you give because we're talking about this for CM.

  • That was a real passion.

  • Is don't that's cheap Would sit for when you get the ball.

  • What was that saying?

  • Don't be doing a holiday grime.

  • Ask him.

  • I remember he was a great player anyway.

  • I mean, he could pretty play, Couldn't he quit?

  • And I think it was just a saying that it was, you know, there was a lot of Harry Lime was another one of them aboard Air Eli with free the first man run grab number that running around used to say running room is a great coach.

  • I mean, it was it was tough as they come.

  • Ah, you have empathy.

  • Jamie.

  • Running Iran.

  • Sorry, Did he have empathy?

  • I think that's what Grams sort of alluding to probably that you know, he had that will to win.

  • But perhaps Grandma don't put words in your mouth, but you may be lacked a bit of empathy towards those who didn't see the game that same way that you did.

  • So you Is that for me, Dave?

  • Well, yeah, but it was Yeah.

  • You can come in on that.

  • No.

  • Right.

  • You talking about running around about using manager?

  • Oh, yeah.

  • Yeah, it's not.

  • I left all my stuff off.

  • Well, Liverpool, you know, that's where you know what I want to.

  • Mine has been trying to coffee as much as they could from from what they were doing.

  • But you know, the obvious overuse the handover.

  • Let me jump clear.

  • Is that the Liverpool attack?

  • When I heard the Liverpool team, We're still a very good team.

  • I'm gonna surely for a couple years.

  • And we're definitely on the way.

  • That my problem?

  • That's a cheese.

  • Too much weight away from from the subject.

  • You know, people, people who are for fulfilled or pretend shell.

  • I know we're gonna talk about this, and I know this much.

  • It was gonna come on a program.

  • What are also will also think I think the question, too.

  • Who when you finish your courier on all you guys the injury.

  • So you'll think you didn't fulfill his potential.

  • The last unavoidable happened toe.

  • But for someone like also smart Jimmy, do you think he finishes two years time?

  • Three or four years time?

  • You'll look back on his experience.

  • Say I didn't think I did to himself.

  • The best chance of you successful.

  • Difficult, isn't it?

  • I don't I don't know.

  • It was a lot.

  • I don't know what he's like in crying.

  • I would imagine you could use it when you watch.

  • It was enough.

  • Ordered you come away thinking goes off shift in today.

  • Nobody's I mean, you look at each record ground.

  • You know he's been Germany's football of the ER about four times, is a World Cup winner, certainly in from his point of view, he's gonna think Well, what I'm doing, Aziz, we dividends, you know, be successful.

  • How is that?

  • I see him.

  • We should not have a conversation about because he is so talented we should be talking about one of the greats, that Kim's the Premier League.
