Jabba's Comments

Andy Linighan was a gangling centreback signed from Hartlepool by Eddie Gray as a decent prospect for the future. He formed a decent partnership with Neil Aspin, but Billy Bremner decided that he needed a bit more experience at the back and he didn't have time to let Linighan pick it up while playing for Leeds. Although he's not had a particularly distinguished career, the fact that he managed to amass 156 appearances at Arsenal in the 1990s must indicate that Eddie Gray's initial judgement was a good one. He played on through 2001, helping the youngsters at Oxford before dropping down to play non-league football with St Albans.

Dan Morgan says: fantastic defender at Palace. I greatly respected him!

Jessica Linighan says: hes my dad.

Laura Grassick says: I know Andy Linighan!!!!!! He is my friend's Dad!!!!
