Kop quote

Quote "I was heading up to the North East for a speaking engagement and was using the fairly quiet M58 to link up with the M6, the M62 and finally the A1. I think I looked momentarily down to adjust the car radio. The next thing my car was totally out of control. I skidded and swerved trying desperately to straighten up. Then a tyre burst and the car flipped, crossing all three lanes before careering up an embankment and finishing upside down on what was left of the roof. If I can remember one thing it was the total silence. There I was suspended upside down, in agony and being slowly strangled by my own tie. I had eight broken ribs, two broken collar-bones and more seriously three hairline fractures at the top of my spine.

Following the accident I had a metal frame, called a halo, attached to my head. When I say it was attached, it was literally screwed into place to keep my head perfectly still to allow my hairline fractures in my spine to heal. Let’s just say I’ve had a lot of time to sit and think, not least about Bill Shankly’s words: "Football is not so much a matter of life and death. It's more important than that." Perhaps when you have cheated death, as I did, you are able to keep things in perspective."
