Might have something to do with him selling his soul to the Daily Mirror for £7,500 in 1977 accusing Revie of match fixing.
Yes, Sprake obviously burned alot of bridges by doing that

I think it's difficult to look outside the Revie team for the top dozen positions, I guess with exception of John Charles.

My favourite player Peter Lorimer comes in at 2, which is higher than I would have thought.

Of the Wilkinson era I'm surprised that Gary Kelly is as low as 44th, given the sheer number of games he played over many seasons. Also Rod Wallace should be higher. He scored some fantastic goals and the Wallace/Chapman combination was the classic big man/little man set up.
