Has sadly died. RIP

Remember seeing him kick Dave Boylen all over the park when he played for Preston. Different game in those days

Sad to read. I remember reading Alf Ramseys book and he said some some nice things about him eg effort and the good ball winner that he was.

RIP champ.

Watched a great documentary about 1966 and Stiles said Alf Ramsey told him his job was to win the ball and give it to Bobby Charlton, nothing else. So that's what he did.

His intention was to have his teeth in for all the post world cup final pictures and a squad member had Nobby's teeth in his pocket ready to give to him when the match ended (I forget who the squad member was). At the end of the match said squad member was so busy celebrating that Nobby never got his teeth back and all the photos show his toothless smile.

Just a good, honest bloke.

40+ years of black and white striped misery.
