Jabba's Comments

Injury-prone left-back signed from Liverpool by Wilko in the Division 2 promotion season. He won the Championship and FA Cup with the Reds in 1986 and had looked to have a long career in front of him for club and country, but a broken leg changed all that. He only managed 20 appearances after his move to Leeds and eventually hung up his boots in 1991 and is now a regular summariser on TV and radio.

John Beech says: After seeing him while he was commentating on West Brom vs. Palace, I think he needs to improve on his rock 'n' roll status.

michael prendergast says: Met him in a pub, great guy, wish more ex footballers were as down to earth as he was

Tony Lawler says: I think he should have more of a say when commentating on tv and radio games, he knows what he's talkin about the other fella seems to get a bit lost. Let Jim give his professional view and pipe the other one down
