I've known George and his family for most of my life. When George moved to Allesley Park I ended up going to school with his youngest daughter and from that my mum became closest of friends (and remains to this day) with George's wife Inger. RIP to a Sky Blue legend.

George was not only a brilliant centre half, as well as a brilliant captain, he was a brilliant and lovely man. For most of his playing days, he lived in a club house, where Roy Kirk (another colossus of a man) had lived before him, on the corner of Clovelly Road and Torcross Avenue. Living in the area, we passed his house a lot. If ever he was working in his garden, he would always be happy to stop what he was doing and answer our questions. I always thought, Mr Coventry City to people of my time, 1955 until late 1960's. RIP lovely man.

That was a terrible tackle. To suffer a broken leg at that point in his career was heartbreaking!!!

Just watched "60 minutes with Gary McAllister" on LFC-TV, and found his comments about his £3million transfer from Leeds United to the Sky Blues in 1996 interesting. Aged 31, captain of Leeds United and Scotland, it was a surprising transfer. Gary Mac states it was purely a financial move, one to set up him and his family. City's offer was so good that he actually asked Leeds for half of what he'd been offered, to stay at Elland Road, and they refused to pay him that amount. He also found the idea of meeting up with Ron Atkinson and Gordon Strachan at Highfield Road attractive.

Based on my favourite Sky Blues' kit of all time - instantly brings back great memories of watching Tommy Hutchison, Ian Wallace, Terry Yorath, Mick Ferguson & co. with my dad, from behind the goal on the east end terraces. Double thumbs up

Love it - just needs the tramlines to go down on to the shorts to echo the old Admiral one.
