Alan Ball has died aged 61. Absolutely gutted. Legend is an overused word but it fitted in his case. Fantastic player and one of the nicest people you'd meet.
Sad Loss, even though I am a Red... my family has links with him, My Granddad's Cousin was very close friends with Alan Ball and his family... And several occasions I have met him and he was such a great bloke to get on with, a Gent of this era...
Football was never about the money, it was about the passion of playing...
