"I remember once I slid in on this United player and all I'd seen were this pair of red socks. I clipped him, sent him flying. As I was lying there, I suddenly realised it was Nobby Stiles. I thought 'Oh God, what have I done? I'm for it now'. He looked me up and down and he seemed genuinely surprised. 'What did you do that for Mike?' So I said: 'I didn't realise it was you Norbert. I wouldn't have done it if I'd known.' And he said: 'Well, you better get up and start running, Mike. And you'd better keep running.'"
