What we think: It's strange to see Viv Busby's record as a Wycombe player. He played in most positions up front first under coach Barry Darvill and then under Wycombe's first ever Manager, Brian Lee. However, he couldn't seem to hold a regular place in the side despite his immerging talent. In January 1970 Luton Town took the plunge and advanced Busby into the professional game. His career in the full-time game saw highlights at Fulham (losing FA Cup finalists 1975) and promotion winners with Stoke City in 1978/79. He moved into coaching after his playing career closed.
