I prefer players not to be too good or clever at other things. It means they concentrate on football.

|Death:||23rd October, 2004|
|Profession:||Coach, Football Player, Manager|
Bill Nicholson was born in Scarborough, Yorkshire. He was an English football player, coach, manager and scout who had a 36-year association with Tottenham Hotspur. During the Second World War he was a guest player for several clubs including Newcastle United where he played on 19 occasions. Although the war probably cost him half his playing career, he did not regret it as his experiences taught him the man-management skills which were to have such a great effect later in his career. Nicholson took a Football Association coaching course and joined the coaching staff at Tottenham upon his retirement as a player. He quickly rose through the ranks of the coaching staff to become first team coach in 1955. He subsequently assisted England manager Walter Winterbottom at the 1958 FIFA World Cup.
