    It’s like comparing a great steak with a magnificent claret, both excellent but better still together. The King would be able to attack, defend and score. Merlin is the ultimate playmaker who would supply the chances for the likes of Colin & Franny

    Absolutely right Bill but Colin would be subject to modern day regimes, training, diet etc.

    Let's be accurate here. Colin was very right footed, did not score goals on his left side. Memory can play games at times.

    Bell. No contest. In direct opposition bell would have stopped silva operating, silva could not have stopped bell.

    Yeh, but could Dave do it on a cold night in York on a midden of a 60s pitch, not the bowling greens they play on now, Colin could !

    But were either a match for Meredith Ian? You're older than me so should remember.

    Both good and very valid points. Pitches were much heavier in those days. Silva couldn't have played on the sort of pitches we saw towards the end of winter.
