He would be sent off every game if he was playing now. Hard as nails and a great one to have on your side. Played a few games in midfield as well. Not sure against who but he had one of their players stretchered off within 20 seconds of kick off.

 I'm surprised that Vic doesn't mention that Dixon was universally called Wilf....despite it not being his given name.

Yeah he was good, still preferred Rambo for sheer barely legal (sometimes) brutality.

OK it was his given name....which might explain why he was called Wilf.

For the first time ever.

One of those 1 in a million times where I can correct Reg.  :)

I'm starting to question myself now....I remember there being something about his name, I suppose Will is an acceptable diminutive of Wilfred...

I always used to call one of Wilf's immediate predecessors "Mahavishnu"  John McLaughlin, after the guitarist, but not sure many others did.  McLaughlin, was another very decent player, who has been largely forgotten.  Oh and if you look on Richard B's site for him, he wasn't a left back, but a right back or holding midfield player.
