One man who won’t be getting the call from Sky to bring colour to the vacant Gray area is John Aldridge.

Liverpool ledge and Lily The Pink ‘singing’ sensation, Aldo was never one for keeping a lid on his frustrations. Just ask that “f****** cheat” in the yellow hat on the sideline at USA 94, wherever he and his clipboard are now.

The former Ireland striker, whose uncompromising nature can be measured in his still-thriving but strictly-seventies Scouse moustache, appeared to have the makings of a decent manager when he hung up his boots after an incredible 495 career goals in 958 appearances (a sub-‘1 in 2’ ratio) for club and country.
