Some of us of a certain age will remember Don Revies frantic bid to sign Alan Ball only to have him rejected after a Medical revealed a hole in the heart condition. (Turned out it was only a Polo Mint in his Pyjama breast pocket)

Wasn't that Asa Hartford?

You are 100% correct, its my mind playing me up. It was rumoured Don Revie was meeting one of Alan Balls relatives on the Penines where i understand brown envelopes change hands when he was at Blackpool but in the long run Bally went to Everton.
United certainly missed a couple of good 'uns.
