“ Before the Wenger “this man changed football fitness” myth, there was Pete Edwards. Introduced modern football fitness, nutrition into English game with NFFC ‘93. A bigger architect of promotion to 3rd in Prem than Clark, Pearce, or me. Pros, use him, he’s the Godfather.” – Stan Collymore (Twitter March 19, 2020) Ex Liverpool, Nottingham Forest, Aston Villa and Leicester City Striker
