    He was a top,top player
    I think a knee injury affected his career

    That Ipswich side was very, very good. I feared the worst when City were drawn against them for the 81 Cup semi final
    You only have to look at this side that was packed with top players
    Ipswich Cooper, Mills, Butcher, Thijssen, Osman, Beattie, Wark, Muhren, Mariner, Brazil, Gates
    compared to our relatively young side (Gow / Hutch and Bobby Mac apart)

    Beattie had been a doubt all week and he was passed fit - I was hoping he would have been out injured as he was such an influence on that team. You could tell maybe he shouldn't have played as he wasn't 100% but was still a fearsome player for the opposition.
    I was supporting Ipswich a few weeks later when they won the UEFA Cup and deservedly so.

    A great player and legend for the Tractor Boys - RIP

    An excellent player who sadly never realised his full potential due to a string of serious injuries. RIP.

    More 'Roche Five' than pain.
    Very sad to hear, as others have said, what a fantastic player in an exceptional Ipswich side, and no doubt would have been even better had he not had a few injury problems, not 100% but pretty sure he was the stand in for the football scenes for Michael Caine in 'Escape to victory' ?

    R.I.P Kevin.
