Like most of us here, I was not around when he played for us, but he got over 100 club goals, an achievement that generally doesn't get the credit it deserves compared to what other forwards have scored for us over the years.
I was around for the last year of his TV show. He carried the whole show really, and always kept it together when Greaves interrupted him mid sentence, which was often.
But he was an emotional character, and he struggled to fight back the tears as a pundit on Sky, when the team and club disintegrated before his eyes during Rafa's last season. The fans let everyone there know that it was 50 years since Shanks first game in charge. Just as that day though, we lost the game.
More recently, he was co commentator on our station for the home game v Wolves two seasons ago. With his faltering and barely audible voice, clearly he wasn't in great health at the time, but he was brave enough to do it, when more regular pundits in better health should have, and for whatever reason didn't bother. But there's only one word to describe him really. Legend.
