Thoughts to his family.

Bit of a sensationalist headline for a guy who passed away at 88 though, but I guess it's all about the clicks nowadays.
Controlled & Clueless. If this is the big life, well I ain't looking to live it.

Sad to hear of Arthur's death. He was a favourite of mine when I was in my teens - probably because he was small like me.

Fitzsimmons, (I know, an inside forward, but an attacking one), Delapenha and for a brief period Barry Thomas. What would we give for 3 forwards like that today?

Wore number 8, if my memory serves me well, when I first started watching the Stags back in 1960.
