wall, perfecting his skills. I can always remember being away for the cup final against Liverpool. We were staying at a place called Oakley Court in Windsor and all the staff were having the usual meal on the Friday night with the manager when I just saw this ground floor window opening in the hotel. Next thing I know there’s a leg coming out of it. Then another, and then this body slipped down the wall and it was Eric. I just said to the manager “What’s going on here?” and of course the manager looked across and we both just started laughing as Eric was doing stretches and exercises against the wall – he had his leg up on the window sill and all. He did that for about 10 minutes, climbed back up the wall, shut the window and was off to sleep.
