R.I.P. Norman Hunter, mega-biter of legs

I LOVED a tackle because you loved a tackle. I loved your hunched-shouldered walk of innocence. I loved your Clough riposte. I loved your gantry talk on match-days, still full of Norman bite. I loved that when I arrived at your driveway to interview you, you were tackling a flat tyre…with that famed left foot of course.
