Osgood, Hudson, Stan Bowles and the great George Best all on it and all great players60s and 70s top level professional footballers were more or less encouraged to drink copious amounts of alcohol
..... Chelsea FC & QPR of the late 60s early 70s are prime examples, though most were on the 'sauce' at all levels of football
To be fair, if he dropped them from not attending then that is fair enough in my view. A lot of players these days don't drink but team nights out or days out at the races can sometimes be more important to team moral than any training session can be.I have it on good authority that Chippy dropped a player from his then Northampton team for not taking part in a team drinking session.
