If Harry Cripps had been in his prime Dunne would have been sent to Bromley a lot sooner


Rose tinted spectacles?

Totally different game when Harry played to now.


Are you comparing him favourably to Cripps?

Harry was/is a legend but the game is massively different from when he played. It's substantially quicker nowadays, players can't get away with the physical liberties they took in Harry's days. I think Harry would have struggled to play as many games as he did.

I remember Harry getting roasted by several wingers, and in particular Mark Lazarus, but because he never gave up and came back fighting fans forgave him his poor games. In many ways there are a lot of similarities between Harry and Dunney but Harry had a charisma about him that won our fans over, a quality Dunney didn't have.

Yes but you won't find many people who think it is a better game now

Totally agree. Despite our success and results in the last 3 years, as far as I'm concerned, the football on the whole has been boring. In general, across all football, there's less time and less space making it difficult to put your foot on the ball and play controlled football.

In all the years I've watched Millwall, IMO, our best team was the one that included Harry at the start of the 1970s. Some will be shocked me choosing them over the 1986/88 team but there was a style and panache that no team since has had. Weller and Possee would be certs in my best ever Millwall team and, arguably, the best piece of transfer business ever conducted by Millwall.

But to end this discussion, I've a lot of time for Harry and Dunney, both excellent club servants

My point was that dear john was saying that Dunny's disciplinary
record made him a liability. God knows what he thought of the
sainted Terry's.

Can't fault his commitment. He was definitely a survivor in the squad. Always puzzled why fans around me would give out about him. Made some errors but he was always having a go.

Could have been a real great for us if he had not been moved around the pitch so much
he played LB, RB, CB, RW, RWB, top of a Diamond
Great bloke to talk to.


Same as this. A much maligned player who suffered for his flexibility, a bit like Steven Reid.
As much as I love Bomber, I still don't understand why Dunney was let go and Craig was brought in when we didn't really need a left back.

Spoke to him a few years ago at QPR. Proper gent and a Millwall stalwart.

Agree 100%. TC or Dunney - no contest.
