    The best player I have ever seen at Barnsley bar none.
    If we're supposed to have signed the best centre half Partick have produced since Alan Hansen in Liam Lindsay, surely it's not asking too much for The Jags to produce the next Ronnie Glavin for us??:D:D

    I feel absolutely honoured that he played for us and I got to watch him glide around Oakwell. Poetry in emotion. Beautiful. Of course things change but I can't see a player as wonderful as Ronnie ever playing the number of games for us that he did. Genius.

    PFA 1982/83 Division Two Team of the Year:-

    GK: John Burridge

    DF: John Humphrey

    DF: Mick McCarthy

    DF: Tony Gale

    DF: John Ryan

    MF: Kenny Hibbitt

    MF: Ray Houghton

    MF: Ronnie Glavin

    FW: Kevin Keegan

    FW: Andy Gray

    FW: Gordon Davies

    Seems like a supporting cast almost worthy of Ronnie!

    PS - Am I the only one to think that team would wipe the floor with today's over-valued equivalents? What would that front six be worth in today's money?

    If they benefitted from modern fitness/training methods they would hammer modern teams.

    I was 19 when Ronnie came to Oakwell. Some of the best years of my life when he was here. Still makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up when I think of some of the exploits of Ronnie and that team. He was majestic.

    April 4, 1983, Hillsboro'. Glavin is sub, comes on, announced as "Galvin", a deliberate dig. Within 5 minutes, gets the ball on the edge of the area, controls it with his left foot, volleys home with his right. 1-0 win. Perfection.

    He used to get the ball from just outside our penalty box and run in a straight line towards theirs.

    Like Moses it all seemed to part before him.
