Alan Ball 1945-2007

Former Manchester City manager Alan Ball died last night of a heart attack. Ball's reign at Maine Road is folklore now as is his 'I won the world cup' speech. As a man of the match performance in that world cup game he proved, he was a great player, great player dont always make great managers.

Agreed - great players do not great managers make, however I don't bear any ill will towards him and am genuinely gutted to hear that he has passed away. His playing days were long before my time but the reaction of the whole football world to this speaks volumes.
