He talks about Dixon’s gambling in more depth than HK
And overall he’s pretty respectful of Howard and his achievements. He’s also very much a fan of Colin Harvey and the club in general - only good things to say.
Reading between the lines, the only golden age players who welcomed the new players were Nev, Trevor Stephens and Ratcliffe. Sheedy in particular is damned with faint praise
I am more than aware of alcoholism and the devastation effects it has on the individual and those around them.
I dislike the fact that Nevin shows no respect for the man. We all knew Howard was suffering, but so were many many others in football circles ..... did Nevin mention Ray Wilkins alcoholism or Kerry Dixons gambling addiction or Speedies name being taken down over racism ? ? I suspect he choose Howard out of bitterness and knows full well he cannot offend Chelsea fans as they are his target audience for book sales and afterdinner talks.
