The beautiful game...Over the years football has had its fair share of memorable characters. Great players, great managers, legends...One can remember moments that seem to stick in the recesses of the mind.
Diego Maradona dribbling from the half way line against England. Marco Tardelli wheeling away with tears in his eyes after he scored in the World Cup final. Pele and Moore swapping jerseys. There are many moments in the sport we love.
But one thing that is as remembered as a great goal is a great tackle, and sometimes a bad tackle.
Here is a celebration of some of the hardest, dirtiest, and toughest players ever to play the game.
First up is Terry Butcher as pictured above.
