RIP Ray Wilkins

Very sad to hear this aftetnoon that Ray Wilkins passed away aged just 61 :(

Deffo deserves a mention as he really was a true gent in a sport spiralling out of control with all the money and greed.

RIP Ray

I have no time for football for the very reasons you mentioned Nick!

But I remember Ray from the 70's/80's........61 is way too young :(

Sorry to say I have not got a clue who he is . Football is my hell my dad loves arsenal but I have not got a clue .

Now instead of watching 22 men run around in shirts I would recommend naked net ball with just 10 girls a sport that should be on bbc1 then I would stay up to watch . :beer:
