Jabba's Comments

Welsh international midfielder signed by Wilko as cover for the likes of Gordon Strachan in the Division 2 promotion season. He was a great midfielder with flair and was 100% committed to the cause whoever he played for. He only played in 3 games for Leeds at the start of the season as the side was getting settled and was released to Stoke City on a loan and later on a free when it was clear he wasn't going to get a look-in. He returned to Wrexham for a final spell, and at the age of 37, scored the goal that knocked Arsenal out of the FA Cup in January 1992.

Scouser Tommy says: To say this man Loves Man Utd is an understatement!! He sits on a panel of ex-footballers on a local radio station in Manchester Century 105.4FM. All he sees is red...typical Manc!!!

Andy McCall points out that I missed his 10-match/3-month stint at Everton from his career - good spot!

anon says: I listen to the football show on 105 and there's a great setup there. Alan Kennedy, Graham Sharp, Gary Owen and the cheeky Micky Thomas. I'm a manc and even I like cheeky Micky. He's a total red, but Gary's had the last laugh now, justice has been done the last derby at our ground and we walloped them. Scouse Tommy gets everywhere, he's never off the radio, he thinks the pool will never get beaten. A real fan, just like us blues. Is Venners the right man? Or to many taking the money and not doing it? Harry not ripping any turf up, and Viduka, need to change the setup. It was a good profit on Ferdinand, Anelka made him look like the boy he is. Goodluck for the season, except when you meet us. Chris

Rob (Stokie) says: My hero! what a superb winger! HERO HERO!

H. Frafjord - Norway says: 1. I am glad we don't had the same hairdresser
2. I am glad I wasn't a naive youth player with him at the club. (...jailbird)
3. Great cup goal against boring Gunners in 91/92 seson for Wrexham. :-)
4. Did he suffer from the same illness as Dreyfus? :-) (ref. Pink Panter)

Martin Jones says: i remember going to watch mickey play for wrexham in our promotion season of 77/78 when wrexham were described by bill shankly as the best 3rd division team he had ever seen.what an influential player he was he was like a pocket dynamo here there and everywhere, a bit like the whole of his fooyball career really.i remember when it came out he was leaving wrexham to go to man utd i was gutted so with a few of my mates we went to peggy jacksons in rhosrobin where he used to live and asked him why he was leaving wrexham!(what a stupid question,mind you i was only 14 at the time).he will go down in history as one of the greatest welsh footballers to ever pull on a wrexham shirt,mind you i wouldn't borrow a tenner off him!!

Taryn Mcilroy says: i used to live next door but 1 to mickey thomas with my mum and dad janet and frank mcilroy and my sisters kelly' jenni and stacey and my name is taryn mcilroy.
