Alan Ball

No fucking way! :D

 

So that's two of the World Cup winning side gone? Would never have thought he'd be the next one to go.

 

RIP squeaky-voiced man! :razz:

taught me a few things when i was a nipper at a butlins coaching day about football that my coach at the time didn't know about.

 

fantastic player, and decent man from what i remember.

 

Rest in peace.

Genuinely shocked and saddened by this :razz:

 

Can't listen to Wonderwall without hearing "...and after all, you're my Alan Ball" after hearing some drunken City fans singing it in a pub once :D

 

RIP

Can actually remember when he retired as a player at Southampton. RIP, probably one of the best English players ever.

Might be interesting to listen to the Legends tonight. In Supermacs autobiography he goes on about the brilliant times he had with Ball on the lash in the 70s. Micky Quinn also says he was a fantastic bloke when he managed him at Pompey.

A sad day, the youngest of the world cup winning team. Only 61 too :D

:razz:

 

 

61 when he won the Wrold Cup?

 

 

That is an achievement!
