  1. I can’t believe Billy Gillespie is not in this list!!! The man was northern Irelands top goal scorer for over 70 years!!!!! He scored the winning goals the FIRST time we ever beat England!!!!!! He shouldn’t just be on this list…. He should have a f***ing statue!!!!!!

  2. Norman Whiteside holds records as the youngest player to take part in a World Cup, the youngest player to score in a League Cup and FA Cup final, and the youngest player to score a senior goal for Manchester United. Winning 38 caps for Northern Ireland, he played at the 1982 and 1986 World Cups, and also helped his country to win the last ever British Home Championship in 1984.

  3. Patrick Magee

    Did you people ever here off Charles Tully.
