Former Northern Ireland manager Sammy McIlroy is a Manchester United legend, he was the last player to be signed by Sir Matt Busby and went on to rack up over 400 appearances for the Old Trafford club. Sammy joins Craig and Amy to talk about those that impacted his career the most from the promise George Best made ahead of his debut to how it all ended under Ron Atkinson. Along the way we hear about the time Tommy Docherty picked himself for a match, the unique item that Big Ron had in his dressing room and whether the Northern Ireland job came too soon.
