John Aldridge = legend

John Nicholson loves Aldo and you should too. He was, after all, one of the top strikers of the 1980s, if not all time.

No one thinks of Aldo. He’s been forgotten somehow. But he was THE man when it came to sticking it in the net in the 80s and 90s and he did it at all levels from his days at South Liverpool right up to World Cups. He was even a big success in Spain, the first non-Basque players to play for the Real Sociedad. He was the very definition of a goal machine. If you wanted a finisher to rely on you got Aldo in.
