Sheffield Wednesday fans of a certain age will look at Terry Curran as their first superstar and icon. I loved the guy.
I remember waiting on numerous occasions in the South Stand car park for Terry to pull in in his sponsored white Toyota (I think) to get his autograph. All the kids seemed to flock to him and followed him right to the players entrance.
Terry dropped down two divisions to play for his boyhood club, and us fans never forgot that.
IMO, he reached his iconic status after his antics on BDM and his outrageous goal at t’lane that sent Barry Davis into raptures.
His partnership with Andy Mac was lethal.
If you get chance, listen to this long clip that sees Terry talking about his career. His relationships with notable characters in football, his battles with big jack, even though he never fell out with him, and his disdain for Laurie McMenamie. If not, enjoy the photos of a Wednesday legend.
