NOTES

A legend at West Bromwich Albion and icon at Wolverhampton Wanderers, Alistair Robertson is a rare footballer who can walk tall either side of a bitter Black Country divide.

He experienced early struggles under Don Howe and other managers earned his ire. But that was nothing to a dislike of Ron Saunders who forced him out of the club in tears.
