Re: Sir Tom Finney has died

I am just listening to a programme on Lancashire Radio, there is just so much well deserved special respect for Sir Tom. He played 76 times for England, scoring 34 goals. Listening to Sir Tom today, he was just such a humble man. In his private life his wife Elsie had Alzheimers and died in 2004, a measure of the man who kept this private for a very long time. A poignant and emotional day today, not about Football, but about a special man. The splash statue outside PNE ground has become a fitting tribute full of flowers and memorabilia, at the foot of the statue there is a Blackpool Football scarf, of all the trials and tribulations of these two Derby teams, it has brought everyone united as one today.

BBC Sport - Sir Tom Finney: Tributes to former England and Preston winger


I think that these tributes say everything about this true gentleman of football.

Re: Sir Tom Finney has died

I listened to the whole service on Radio Lancashire, a very poignant service, some lovely readings, and hymns, one of my favourites Abide with me, was sung, I would have loved to have been there, to pay respects to this man. R.I.P Sir Tom, you are now with your loving wife Elsie.

Re: Sir Tom Finney has died

I just find it so sad, as it showed just what a bunch of prats the FA are.
The only person from the FA to attend Tom's funeral was Trevor Brooking.
All the old farts and blazers were too busy to attend the funeral of the finest example of how a footballer should behave, both on the field and off it.
