RIP Neil

Post by jimharri on February 3rd 2011, 20:07

In an era when the word 'legend'' is thrown around with ridiculous regularity, Neil Young WAS a true legend. A graceful player who never got the same recognition outside of the club that the ''holy trinity'' of Bell, Lee and Summerbee received (but was highly regarded by all blues of a certain vintage), he scored the winning goal in an FA Cup final, 2 goals in the ECWC semi final against Schalke, scored the opening goal and then won the penalty that led to the decisive goal in the final against Gornik and scored 2 goals in the title clinching 4-3 win at Newcastle in May 1968. Not a bad bunch of goals, eh? RIP Neil; your suffering is over and you will be sadly missed.

My Auntie ( dark sheep side of the family) used to tell me many moons ago after she had spent time at Styal women's prison 60/70s that she got to know Neil Young's mother who was once a prison officer there, and claimed she was always going on about her son the footballer, never knew how much truth there was in the storys's as she was known for stretching the truth, hope they are true though..

R.I.P Neil...
