  1. I actually saw him play live once. I was 9? and our school took the entire class to watch Ipswich play at home. This was in the days before seats so all us little kids had boxes to stand on so we could see over the heads of the fans in front

  2. Saw him at Portsmouth in the mid 80s. Bit past it by then, doubled up with Mick Channon who was definitely an old crock, crumbling like Fratton Park .

    Big fan of Paul Mariner, sad to hear the news.
