    I suspect he won't be doing this. He'll be running a club or a leader of a country in his later years.

    Tommy's drinks bill each match will be more than he got paid for playing back in the day... Top bloke, funny as, and he is president of our supporters club in Rochdale...the Cassy Blues

    He's a rum fucker I know that. I know a few old school from Middy who know him. His brother or cousin was the manager (football team)of the Ye Golden Lion in the 90s when I played for them. I seen him at a legends type show a few years ago with Buzzer and son and a few more. He's a funny bloke.

    He had the honour (!) of seeing me in my dressing gown in 1993 when delivering our video recorder from Granada tv rentals. Those were the days eh. Think he prefers the job he has now - being paid to be at city ;)

    Mad isn't it..Top footballer finishes career and does a job like that. Imagine Sterling starting as a ground worker when he retires from football? Crazy!

    Has anyone done any City hospitality? - they apparently have ex-players there - was wondering who.

    A colleague who is a dipper went to a hospitality thing at Anfield a few years ago and they had ginger super-sub David Fairclough chatting to people during the meal.

    If you're an early bird at the stadium you see the past players arrive all suited and booted in their club blazer = Tommy Booth, Joe Corrigan, Ian Brightwell, Richard Edghill, Colin Bell, Tony Book (though i think nowadays he doesn't do much of the schmoozing, he deserves to be treated like royalty as far as im concerned!), Mike Summerbee, sometimes Peter Barnes.

    You see Tony, Colin, and Mike watching the match from the directors box, but i think the others still have to do the rounds of hospitality and don't see the game.

    If Leicester City is any comparison, they don't get paid as much as you'd think for the match day gig. My ex-mrs is now living with an ex-LCFC "legend" who I won't name, and as part of the divorce financial disclosures I had view of his earnings, which worked out to about £140.00 for the day - to arrive at the ground about 11am, meet & greet the pre-match diners, smooch around the tables, smooch around the boxes during the match, then a fans Q&A until about 6pm. This was an ex club captain, reasonably high profile in this town, earning about £20.00 an hour at his Saturday job! Better rates at Lidl. Unless she lied...but she'd never do that to me. Ermm..
