    The youngest and possibly Englands best player in the final.

    Thats it? 3 posts. If it was Maradonna or Maldini you'd all be praising them.

    Ed (I'm going to start calling you that from now on so don't be alarmed, saves typing out "El Diego" every time), I think a lot of us want to post in here but don't feel right because we didn't actually see the guy play.

    I've read about him, seen a few clips etc., but I don't feel like I have a right to say anything because I just didn't see him enough. But I've been reading about his management feats and he was a true English great, on the pitch and off it.

    I think JB's right.

    From the little I knew of him he seemed like a decent guy. Youngest of the 66 team. It's no age to go really...

    I love the idea of a minute's applause instead of a minute's silence. That's a very fitting tribute.

    It's better because mindless dickheads can't spoil it.

    A great player who lived football,
    Shankley on hearing the news of Arsenal signing Ball from Everton, phoned Ball, "You signed for Arsenal at 3.30 today"
    Ball replied "How do you know", SHANKS " Because that was when the thorn was taken from my side". A fitting tribute to a great man.
