Google works. Lol
Never heard of it
Yeah I remember that. It had more to do with the fact that he was an absolute nutcase and completely unreliable
Great player not so sure he was a great captain tbh
What year was that in?
I'm guessing the early 60s. Would have made our team in more immense!
Ron Greenwood was no gentleman, in 1966 screwed Bobby Moore out of his dream transfer to us by telling him he wouldn't sell so he'd have to come to us for free by running down his contract if he wanted it that bad, but that if he did that he lose his World Cup spot as sir Alf wasn't picking any out of contract players. Basically Moore had to choose between coming to us, or extending with West Ham to save his World Cup place. Greenwood was a ****.
Harsh on Moore
Given the tough circumstances, at least Moore made the right decision though
Paul Ince says hi
Maybe in the late 80s, certainly not in the late 90s
That's sort of right but not totally.
Greenwood did indeed use the threat of letting his contract run down so he couldn't go to the world cup. But there was no such thing as a Bosman free transfer in 1966.
He would have been in limbo until/if West Ham agreed to sell him regardless of having a contract. They had his registration and that's what a club would have had to buy.
This is what Bosman fought against in the 90's.
It makes sense, it stopped clubs just refusing to sell players but had implications that we all know about.
Either way, Ron Greenwood being a **** stopped us getting Bobby Moore as he blackmailed him via his international career.
Moore never forgave him.
