Rose wasn't the first, nor the last, player AVB alienated, TBF.Rose was 2 players, you had AVB Rose the guy who never tracked back and looked disinterested and Poch Rose the player who never stopped running and driving forward with boundless energy. He was good in the right environment.
Benny didn’t have the out and out work rate of Poch Rose but he was so classy on the ball.
I think the injury really derailed Danny. With his known mental health issues it did a lot of damage seemingly - being injured and away from the squad and seeing Walker flourish and get rewarded with a megabucks move, and still not getting as much stick as Danny got even in the good times even though Walker was being a twat behind closed doors. If he'd never gotten hurt I think things are wholly different for him...just a damn bad break.
But you're 100% right about BAE. When he was on it, he was on it . Looked like everything you could want in a fullback and then some.
