Graham Taylor dead at 72

Postby DaveLister » 12 Jan 2017, 15:16

A great club manager who took Watford to the First Division. Took a load of unfair stick from the press , most notably the S*n, over his time as England manager, but Lincoln, Watford and Aston Villa fans won't have a bad word for him. RIP to a real football man.

A decent man and a very good Club Manager. Unfairly crucified by the popular press whilst England Manager. R.I.P. Graham.

Very sad. Was a far better manager than he was given credit for. More recently, a very good radio pundit on football. RIP.
