Flashback With Paul Miller

An Eastender, Maxie was a brave and committed performer who helped us win the FA Cup in 1981 and 1982 and the UEFA Cup in 1984. He signed for us as an apprentice in 1976, was a full professional within a year and went on make 285 appearances before joining Charlton Athletic in 1987.
