My uncle just turned 69 on Saturday.

It's not old these days. He's still working.

Trevor, sad loss. RIP.

Another older fella could have stayed alive
if he took the daily tablet that protects your heart.


[Francis died at his home near Marbella in Spain
on Monday morning, a spokesman for the family
has confirmed. The statement said:
"Trevor Francis has died at the age of 69.
"He had a heart attack at his apartment
in Spain this morning.]

Are you joking? He was the first million pound player.

RIP to a Blues legend.

They played an interview of him telling stories last night on TalkSport .


He said he was all fired up to play in an important game .. he was THE star striker



As he walked out of the dressing room Brian Clough grabbed him and said ..

“ right last week Rudi Kroll ran the match from the back so go out there and MARK him !!”
