RIP Alan Ball

Sadly, and as you no doubt already know, Alan Ball has died at the age of only 61. He'd suffered a heart attack. A very sad day, not just for Arsenal fans but for fans of football everywhere: it was rather touching to see the many, many tributes already placed at Everton's ground for example.

I'm certainly not the only one who has loads of great memories of Bally in an Arsenal shirt, though I'm sure he'll be best remembered by most for his role in another red shirt - that of England in the 1966 World Cup Final.

He'll be a big miss, that's for sure.
