One of those players who was first on the team sheet but the fans would not understand why.

Not sure about that.

i have watched the final. Nobby stiles and Bobby Moore were absolutely superb.

he could pass as well as tackle.

Listened to a Nobby interview where after being picked for England for the first time,  his dad told him to ask Alf Ramsey why he wasn't playing left half-back... (I.e. same as his club position).

Ramsey said, "so where should I play Bobby Moore, because that his where he plays"?

Nobby said, "I'll play wherever you need me Alf"
