Mullers was a top player but not in the same class as Dave. People who weren't privileged enough to see him sometimes imagine he was just a hard bastard, but he was much, much more. As well as being a great inspiration he read the game fantastically well. There weren't many who could pick out and deliver a pass like he did. The nearest in the modern English game was Roy Keane, but Dave was never a dirty player who set out intentionally to injure someone.mullery and mackay in same breath ?
no.....mackay was different class...a true legend....an incredible inspiration and a great player who gave 100% in every game he played when many exulted contempories simply did not.
He hardly had a bad game—unfortunately, one of the very few off-days he had was the 1961 Cup Final, when the whole team was short of the full ticket for most of the game, and that's one of the very few records of him and that wonderful side. Still indispensable, though. (What? Did someone say they hadn't got it? :grin
