About Peter Kyle:
“There is about him something that is strongly reminiscent of the old Scotch school. He is quiet, unaffected – the type of players who must be understood before he can be appreciated. He is the mainspring of a machine; the man who will keep it running if all the cogs are in sympathy with ne another. He has individuality; he as ideas of his own. Close dribbling, an insistence to keep the ball on the ground, the constant endeavour to weave a profitable pattern, stamp Kyle as an intellectual player. He can shoot, too, but he does not shoot often enough.”

  1. Didn’t know this guy had graduated to us at Villa. Interesting to see that Spurs punished him by selling him to Arsenal!
