Just watched a few YouTube clips of Glenn Hoddle. Different era of football, and the video clips aren't great quality (and some of the pitches were terrible), but fuck me Hoddle was some player. Balance, strength, vision, short passes, long passes, left foot, right foot, good in the air... brilliant! Lots of 'great' players from the 80s would struggle in today's game, but Hoddle would fit right in, and he would be considered a great player.

He was my favourite non-LFC player by a mile. Insane that he got so few England caps. He was a majestic footballer.

Waddle, Gascoigne and Batty were my favourites (I was getting into football in the early nineties).

Same. Quality player and gave Steve Archibald everything of a plate... Hoddle used to have that 'both feet off the ground' volley technique - first time I'd ever seen it. Gerrard and now Trent's passing range reminds me of Hoddle in the eighties... some player.

Shame he's such a shit pundit now.

All i remember him for is being the shit little bloke running around kicking people for Chelsea in a side full of classy Italian/Euro imports in the mid 90's imports. A side with Zola, Vialli, Gullit, Lebouef, Desailly, Di Matteo, Caseraghi, Poyet etc...and then Dennis Wise

Always found it strange that we weren't linked with him. Seemed a no brainer, talented, English and what young player wouldn't want to play for Klopp??

Not sure he would have got a game for us. I think he has looked at Sancho progression and has made a decent move.

I wonder if Harvey Elliot joined Dortmund instead of us, would he be playing for them all the time now.

Wow - some comparison. I don’t see that style in his play personally but he is young and needs to find his role - he looks a dynamic, powerful and elegant midfielder. I saw more of a Fabinho type myself and even similar physical characteristics

Former Republic of Ireland boss Mick McCarthy has been appointed manager of Cypriot champions Apoel on a deal which stretches to May 2022.

The 61-year-old, whose club posts have included Wolves and Ipswich, left the Republic of Ireland job in April.

McCarthy attended Apoel's game against Apollon on Saturday before being confirmed in the post on Monday.

His assistant will be Terry Connor, who worked with him at Wolves, Ipswich and the Republic of Ireland.

A statement on the Nicosia-based club's website confirmed the duo's arrival.

"We welcome both of them to Apoel and we wish them to immediately help the team return to good and substantial performances so that it can meet its goals, which are to win titles."

Apoel are the most successful team in Cypriot league history but have made a poor start to the season and currently sit 10th with nine points from eight games.

A run of four games without a win proved the end for Greek coach Marinos Ouzounidis, who was the Nicosia team's 12th permanent coach since 2015.

McCarthy's first match in charge of APOEL will be against second-bottom Ethnikos Achna on Saturday.

Stephen Kenny succeeded McCarthy, who was in his second spell as Republic manager, six months ago.

We scouted him for a long time. His preference was always to go to Germany,
