    I always thought Finney was better than Matthews who was a one position man.Finney could play anywhere along the front. When Preston played Edinburgh Select at ER he was centre forward and a class above anyone else on the park.Two memories of Matthews- England were playing Brazil in a friendly and were tanking them I stood in PTs electrical department watching the match on the way home from school-a common thing to do those days-Stanley went skating past the left back for the umpteenth time who chased after and pulled off a textbook tackle unfortunately for a rugby player. The ref just gave him a sympathetic pat on the head. Stanley came with Stoke to play Hearts in a friendly.Think he was over 50. Davie Holt was left back-hard as nails of course-told me afterwards he was terrified to tackle him in case he went down in history as the man who killed Stanley Matthews.
    As a Blackpool lad here's a bar of soap please wash your mouth out.

    Seriously Tom Finney was a great player, but Sir Stan was better, played for evermore and was a European footballer of the year (good one for pub quizes, which British Clubs have had a European footballer of the year. I dont think many will list Blackpool.)

    There's been a few Billy but I dont think many would have expected Blackpool to provide one.

    Wonderful memories there AH
    PTs !! Patrick Thomsons for the younger viewers, more recently Argos on the North Bridge

    AH
    I, as a schoolboy, delivered Davie Holts milk when he played for hertz and lived in Clerwood
    I worked with the "dummy"
    I would collect the milk money on a saturday morning.
    Most times,Davie would answer the door, pay his bill and give me a good tip .
    I would usually have my Hibs scarf on, as i would be off to the game when milk run collection finished
    He always said good luck.. Nice man and a very good footballer.

    I also delivered Tommy Walkers milk on another run in Barnton !!!
    Mick I am sure he stayed around the corner from Gordon Marshall, I also used to see Davie Clunie around that area.

    I worked in Corstorphine for about five years in the 1960s Mick and there were a few sportsmen were customers-Davie Holt was one and he was always up for a chat .As was Bobby Parker who was more dyed in the wool Hearts.

    Like Nello I was brought up that side of town and up until I was about 10 I would never miss a game at Tiny usually climbing in or getting a lift over mister?

    My Dad was a hibby

    Anyway even at a tender age my young eyes could see that Davie Holt was some player the SDG of his day

    This episode from the 1995 TV Series Kicking and Screaming includes a fair section on Peter. It is towards the end around 33 minutes into the episode.

    Its surprising, the day he was transferred to Arsenal it was nationwide headline news and his Two goals at Ibrox was being repeatedly shown on the national news programmes.
