I wonder what Stiles taught these young lads ? Certainly not the finer points of the game.He was a clogger in his day was Stiles.

You have to be a bit more than a clogged to win a World Cup ,a proper footballer

I remember the titanic clashes with Nobby and the Anfield Iron, Tommy Smith in the 60s! Also who recalls Nobbys apprentice John Fitzpatrick , a Scot?

Nobbys family were funeral directors....I suppose he had the idea of puttin his opponents in a box!!

Nobby Stiles was a very clever player who read the game so well. A guy who could mix it with the best. And usually won...

Good comment, parvo. Do us all a favour and stop on here. The general site is a lot better without you.

Hard players were men like Tommy Smith of Liverpool or Dave Mackay of Spurs. Or even harder were Boltons full backs Tommy Banks and especially Roy Hartle. Stiles was a dirty player IMHO.The other hard men were just that. Hard but fair and within the rules of hard play in that era.

Great player for club and Country.

I think he captained England at youth level and played in a World Cup Final so I think he must have been more than a clogger.
