England International

With Newcastle United, FA Cup runner-up 1974, League Cup runner-up 1976

With Arsenal, FA Cup runner-up 1978. Terry Neill's first major signing for Arsenal, the legendary 'Supermac' brought goals from Newcastle United. An outspoken Londoner, his career was cut short by a knee injury. Supermac took Tyneside by storm when he arrived from Luton Town in 1971, starting with a never-to-be-forgotten hat-trick on his home debut against Liverpool. Powerfully built and moving with a swagger that demonstrated his total self-belief, the Londoner.
