    He had a stint with us as a player and then as assistant manager. When things weren't going well on the pitch, he was the only who came and spoke to an angry mob whilst the chairman and co hid. RIP

    I have a vague memory that he was/was poised to be both England and Man United captain and then got injured. Bryan Robson then took over both, though Wilkins captained England a few times during Robson's numerous injuries.

    For 8 minutes then hobbled off injured :D He turned out for us three times as well. I can remember him and Luther Blisset playing for Ac Milan which at the time was rare for british players making it abroad .
