Some good choices, but fuck knows who some of the people they got to do this are. Apparently Andy Robertson is Liverpool's hardest player ever. and Roy Keane is the toughest player ever to play in the Premier League....
Some of this lot don't seem to know football stretches back more than 20 years.

From the person they contacted on some website, ours is Dicksy. Not a bad choice but surely you'd go Bonzo, wouldn't you?

Hanham isn’t rough it’s just an ordinary suburb

Do you know where dicks grew up? (I don’t). I think Swindon is onto something, I’m pretty sure he said that being a kid amongst the Birmingham hard men are what shaped his persona in the pitch. Fwiw I knew someone who was taught by Julian’s mum, said she was a lovely gentle woman so it doesn’t sound like he had a rough upbringing based on that very limited info

Harry Cobden (Coko beach) is riding out of his skin at the moment)

Connor Planas is an apprentice to follow on the flat this season particularly in the big handicaps where his claim can be put to good use.
He has already bagged a double on the opening day of the season at Doncaster

Osin Murphy also looking back to his best.and will ride winners galore.

Keith Robson was a bit of a nutter and definitely worth a mention

Swindon hammer

Under the cosh is one of my favourite podcast's and the one I listened to most over lockdown.
I'll give the Harford episode a listen over the weekend.
The Glen Little one is quite amusing with his stories about mad Stan Ternent.

Gary Strodders shank,

Mick Hartford tells a story about Tony Coton on that YouTube podcast called “under the cosh”

They were good pals and when Harford was at Luton & Coton was at Watford they would often meet at a pub and on one occasion there was an altercation between them and some locals involving weapons. Well worth a listen/watch.

Swindon Hammer

That Brum side of the mid eighties also featured Tony Coton who was involved in many a nightclub / taxi rank altercation as I later bore witness to on a night out in Watford.

Mick Harford was one hard bastard and his partner in crime once he moved on to Luton the headbanded Steve Foster one dirty one.
I still remember that League cup semi at Upton park in the late 80s where Mcknightmare gifted them an unasailable lead.

Another player who had a liking for the headband Eric Young got
pelters (quite literally with coins) from the north bank in that other famous League cup match when Martin Allen scored a screamer which didn't really belong in that game which was X rated to say the least.
I also recall Devo playing in that match and skipping away from numerous challenges designed to cut him In half in a vintage display.

The unfortunate thing about Julians hard man reputation ( fully deserved by the way) was it kind of masked what an actual good player he was .

Re: Fancy a laugh? Here's the BBC's list of 'Who is your club's most notorious hardman?'
On the pitch and off the pitch are so distinctly different. Keane was a tough competitor but its been said many times that like most tinkers, he ain't all that in person. Ask Jon Walters.

Duncan Ferguson was unmatchable on the pitch and also very tasty off it as those blokes who burgled his house found it LOL.

Dicks is ours for sure. In all eras he would have been ours.

Re: Fancy a laugh? Here's the BBC's list of 'Who is your club's most notorious hardman?'
Swindon, I reckon Dicks would have had all that ingrained in him, from the neck of the woods he grew up in Bristol, way before playing with that Birmingham City lot.

Keane shit t from Shearer, Dicks, Viera, Ian Bishop...

The one a lot all name is Mick Harford.

Re: Fancy a laugh? Here's the BBC's list of 'Who is your club's most notorious hardman?'
No doubt Keane was an extremely tremendous tough competitor and dirty cunt, but I've seen him shit himself numerous times when someone has faced him up and one of them was shearer!

Re: Fancy a laugh? Here's the BBC's list of 'Who is your club's most notorious hardman?'
The only player I ever saw Bonzo slightly shy away from was Billy Whitehurst.

Whitehurst was a complete nutter who used to fight gipsies in bare knuckle boxing on his days off.

There are a few videos on YouTube where ex team mates of his tell very funny anecdotes about their time with him.

Re: Fancy a laugh? Here's the BBC's list of 'Who is your club's most notorious hardman?'
I suspect Alvin was a bit of a tough guy on the pitch and Mark Ward was a fearless terrier. Certainly one of the bravest I saw was Patsy Holland, he wouldn't hesitate to put his foot or head in.
