Greatest Defender

Who do you think was the greatest defender ever for Sporting?

I've been watching some old tapes and I could only marvel at the talent that was "Phil Babb". There is only one word for the man. Genius.

Portugal had not seen anything like him before and has not since.

IS he regarded as highly in Portugal as he is in other parts of the world?
Don't forget this is the guy that kept the Italians at bay during Ireland's 1-0 victory in USA 94.

The Irish gave the bagpipes to the Scots as a joke, but the Scots haven't seen the joke yet.

A true Irishman has so much respect for the truth that he uses it only in emergencies.

Babb was a very solid CB for Sporting and should hav played more but Mise had him as the second coming of Baresi and Bobby Moore. Who knows why.
