Re: Jimmy Hill RIP

He certainly was a trail blazer, his 1970 World Cup studio panel was a huge success, but I have never been impressed with the 3 points for a win that he successfully lobbied the Football League to adopt and the rest of the world followed suit.

Re: Bertie Black

I got his autograph outside Ibrox after a one all draw in their championship winning season , as we stepped out from behind the team bus he pulled me back by the collar of my jacket as I was oblivious to the fact of a passing car whilst talking to him . for that I was forever grateful. RIP Bertie .
