willie morgan on the wing

Listening to an interview with Willie Morgan (ex of Manchester United), on the 'United we Stand' podcast recently, promoting his autobiography 'Willie Morgan On The Wing', reminded me of the Sun Soccercard (above) from when Morgan played for Bolton Wanderers. Artist licence is obviously permitted, but the soccercard takes the piss.  Morgan had aged slightly, but he was nothing like what the card portrays.  If l had been him, l'd have been mightily pissed off and demanded recompense.
There was a time when he was probably Manchester United's best player, and he was one of my (many) childhood heroes, but l'd loved to have been in the vicinity when him and Tommy Docherty were at each others throats (they have famously fallen out - big time).
