Goodbye 'Bally' and thanks

Like all true football fans I am sad to hear this morning of the untimely death of Alan Ball at age 61.

'Bally' was the youngest of the 11 English players that won the World Cup at Wembley in 1966. I remember that day as if it were yesterday and it is perhaps difficult for young football fans today to understand that Bally was the Wayne Rooney of his day.

A huge chunk of passion for English football has died today.

God bless you Bally! In heaven there will be a wonderful football team that includes George Best, Bobby Moore and now Alan Ball.
