fu** he was good when he was up and going.
Never really sussed out that whole marking deal.
Always seemed to have the 'Sando' rule applied, where three campaigners could hang off of him and not give away a free kick for some ******* reason.
Just to add one more point, guys like NicNat and Mummy legit hurt people. They know how to use their bodies as a weapon.
But I don't think I've seen a modern player, or maybe any player just physically devastate people by incidental contact or when they would initiate contact against Sandi like he could.
An absolute presence at stoppages at his peak and watching him still on his knees reach through a pack and grab mids, then drag them to ground, was always entertaining. Seen him up close and personal during a warm up and I just imagine his opponents bottling it when the big fella came at em.
