Ipswich & England legend
Mick Mills made our top 5 greatest captains of The Football
League so he's straight into our Men United Hall of Fame.
But Mick has also provided with quotes to support our campaign
and has written to all the Ipswich fans to thank them for their
support. And we hope to work with Mick across the season.
In the words of John Cross from the Daily Mirror, this is why
Mick is in the Hall of Fame:
"Humble and quietly spoken, Mills had a terrific attitude. There
was no ego, just a desire to win. He was also well-behaved on and
off the pitch. Instantly recognisable thanks to his famous
moustache, Mills was a cornerstone of Bobby Robson's successful
Ipswich team. They won the FA Cup, Uefa Cup and only finished
outside of the top six once in 10 seasons. It is a remarkable
record, and one that owed much to Mills and his leadership as one
of English football's great captains. Any player could look to him
and see him fierce in the tackle, ambitious on the ball and always
ready to help his team-mates. A perfect captain."
