Geordie Gentleman passes away

A tremendous manager and a wonderful man. It would appear that no-one ever had a bad word to say about him. He will truly be missed. God bless him.


I was very interested to read in his autobiography 'Farewell But Not Goodbye' that he was approached to manage Everton on at least two occasoins, the closest being in 1973 when he was all set to take the job until the news was leaked to the press. He described pulling out of the job as one of the biggest regrets in his career. This autobiography is well worth a read.
