Where are they now?


Club careers: Mickey (pictured right) - Blackpool, Everton, QPR, Porto, 1971-1986; Mike - Bolton, Everton, Norwich, Burnley, Manchester City, Blackpool, Bury, 1974-89.

International careers: Mickey scored on his debut against Norway in March 1976 and went on to win 21 caps; Mike won four caps, the first three on the 1982 tour of South America (and the Caribbean), when Ireland played Chile (the controversial one), Brazil and Trinidad and Tobago.

Highlights: Mickey scored the winner against the USSR in a World Cup qualifier at Lansdowne Road in 1984 and, in his six years in Portugal, won three league titles and two cup winner's medals. Played for Porto in the 1984 Cup Winners' Cup Final defeat by Juventus. Mike got to play against the likes of Zico, Socrates and Falcao in his second international appearance, away to Brazil. Lost 70, though.

Did they ever play on the same Irish team? No, much to Philip Greene's relief.

Where are they now? Mickey is a football agent, based in Buckinghamshire (Dean Holdsworth and Jamie Pollock are his best known clients). Mike, who was Bury boss for five years, is assistant manager to Jimmy Quinn at Swindon Town, after a brief spell as caretaker manager following Steve McMahon's departure from the club.
