These old players always have a great story to tell. The modern player is boring in comparison.

I think todays players have a much more regimented lifestyle compared with those of yesteryear.

I have read many stories of players smoking in the dressing room both before a game and at half time. Argyle's all time leading goalscorer Sammy Black regularly played with a half smoked cigarette behind his ear. Jack Jumbo Chisholm often arrived at the ground just before the kick off after coming straight from the Brittania pub. In the early seventies training consisted of an hour at the ground then down to the snooker club on Mutley Plain. It's hardly suprising so many footballers ended up as publicans, a lot of them were well used to spending time on the other side of the bar.

Can you imagine todays players getting away with antics like that during the season.

Dews cricket stats would put a lot of cricket professionals to shame.

Wasn't there another Argyle old player who played cricket? Out of today's squad Reuben Reid could have made it as a professional cricketer but chose football.

I agree with that, the old players do have more of a story and background.
