More info:
"Quite a genius on his day, playing a winning game to perfection. His best efforts came in brilliant intermittent flashes, but he could not always be relied upon to produce his highest form. Speedy and clever, he delighted in showing his tricks against weaker defenders. In big games he was invariably dangerous, possessing as he did the capacity for pulling a match 'out of the fire' at the most unexpected moments. Free and open-handed, he might take the game more seriously with advantage."
