Tippy talks about his career coming up through the Arsenal youth system, his younger days at Tottenham alongside the legends of that era, getting taken under the wing of the likes of Gazza and Chris Waddle, trying to get past Gary Lineker under Terry Venables, his time at Luton under manager David Pleat and his decision to join Terry Butcher at Sunderland only for the England legend to get the sack a short time later... his relationship with Sunderland managers Mick Buxton and Peter Reid, the reason he probably shouldn’t be anywhere near a car at any point, his time playing for Northern Ireland and the reason that faltered, and looks back at the players and the fans and the regret he feels over not staying at Sunderland when he had the chance.

A lot covered in a short space of time from a man who we absolutely adore. Haway Tippy Lad! Listen in!
