Sad news but 91 is a good run!

I was born in 1949 when we won the FA Cup. My little brother was born in 1960, the next, and last time we won it. My parents gave up childbirth after that and look how long we have waited for another FAC win!
A run now and again might be nice, but given the choice of doing 'Pool in the cup or the league I would prefer tomorrow.
Exciting times!!

Saw him play many, many times. Another of Cullis's great teams goes.
RIP Bill, thanks for the happy memories.
