If the world was made up of people just like Ray Wilkins what a wonderful world that would be.

Lovely Fella, RIP Ray.

Gordon Banks dies, persons of a certain age will remember this mild giant of a man and his iconic save against the best ever player and the best ever team there has ever been.
RIP Banks'y.

This one hurts more than most because there must have been a time when we all wanted to be Gordon Banks.
When it came to goalkeepers there was Gordon Banks then the rest.

You always felt that by selecting him England had a goal start.

Not only one of the all time greats, a great man, a modest man. A man of the people.


Thankyou Gordon. RIP.

The sale of Dougan and Banks, saw the decline of a good Leicester side in 1967.
It is rumoured that Dougan told John Ireland to sign Banks, but nothing came of it.

Just imagine adding Banks to the Wolves side of '67...

Gordon Banks set the standard for goalkkeeping, he was a wonderful man, who leaves so many great memories..thanks

The "Anfield Iron" has died..
I once thought this was not possible.
A true legend of football, at a club with so many.
Rest In Peace Tommy

Was just about to post this Cannock. What a bloke to have in your team and on your side. An iconic hardman in an age where there were many. I wonder what Tommy thought of the preening divas in todays game. If you mixed up Mouthino with Biffa Bacon you could get a fair image of Tommy in looks and skill. RIP Mr Smith.

Well said Mr Rozza.

Many hard men around in the day, easy to forget the skill the man had in spades ( Am I allowed to say that these days ? Who fookin knows ? )

Many players like to be thought of as hard, most of them are not.

In the British game I have seen two, Tommy Smith and Dave Mackay, both could play a bit as well.

RIP Tommy, You were what Shankly and Liverpool were all about.

Billy McNeill..everything you'd want in a captain
Some people have power, some have class, and some have greatness, Billy was blessed with them all.
RIP to a Scottish legend.

Post subject:  Re: Book of Remembrance

It was sad that Billy wasn't capped as often as he might because he played in a time when Scottish managers felt obliged to fill a Rangers quota.
Ronnie McKinnon gained but Billy lost out.

A real legend of the game. RIP.

Fittingly Celtic won today..their number 5 scored the only goal in the 67th minute.

Hail Cesar.

And now sadly another lion sleeps tonight
Stevie Chalmers greatest victory came before playing for Celtic, when was diagnosed with tuberculosis meningitis and was given only weeks to live before being successfully treated.

When you think back to how clubs recruited in the fifties and sixties you do realise how much the game has changed.

RIP Stevie

Obviously not you Knocker..but if there is anyone on here, that wants to learn about the history of football, and how it's changed..Watch the brilliant BBC iPlayer documentary Glasgow 1967: The Lisbon Lions.

As for recruitment 10 locals and one from 30 miles away, managed by a man who was initially told he couldn't manage the team because he was a non-Catholic.

Celtic winning the European Cup (67) is up there with Forest (79) ..unthinkable today.

What a sad week..firstly Jose Antonia Reyes, and now Justin Edinburgh.
Both taken in different circumstances, both taken too young, such a loss

John Dee has sadly died.
He was a character, and fantastic reporter with a great personality, who always had a story to tell

Its also 10 years, today, since Sir Bobby Robson died..

Two men whose paths may have crossed, and both gentlemen..RIP

John Dee was a must read back in the day.

RIP.

RIP Martin Peters. Alf Ramsay said he was 10 years ahead of his time.

What a player Martin Peters was, as a young boy he helped me understand the game and the importance of movement rather than being static.

For us he was the identi-kit English player, looked the part, played the part and was as humble as everyman.
RIP Martin Peters, up there with the best.

Its seems hard to believe that with a little more effort, Bobby and Duncan could and should have worn Gold and Black, imagine adding them to a mid 50;s Wolves team

Wolves failed to understand that clubs were signing talent due to underhand payments and gifts.

As a club we saw through the sixties and seventies a reluctance at board level to think bigger picture when it came to investment at all levels.

Post subject:  Re: Book of Remembrance

Don't forget Knocker, Wolves went to Ashington, to persuade the young Bobby Charlton to sign for Wolves, with a drawing of the futuristic Molineux, whilst other clubs were offering cash
