As a child of the 60's, Osgood was a hero of mine along with the great Ron "Chopper" Harris, Marv Hinton,Ian Hitchinson( who could throw a ball from one side of the pitch to the other) and the
best 'keeper Chelsea ever had, Peter "The cat" Bonnetti. This team would probably have given the present team a trouncing in their heyday, could you imagine Robben taking the punishment dished out by both teams in the 1970 Cup Final?
Anyway, I digress, I posted this simply as a matter of respect and if it has offended you, well if we can pay tribute to 70's wrestlers why not footballers of the old school?
Having met Ossie on a number of occasions I can honestly say British football has lost one of its greatest players. A great loss to us all. A wonderfull gezzer who used to pop into the pubs around the Bridge for a pint & banter with the fans right up until his untimely death. Gutted absolutely gutted. RIP Ossie aka THE KING.
One of footballs true gents a true example of what we need more of the modern game. I was at Anfield last night and have to say all bar one nugget observed a truly well deserved minute of silence. RIP fella.
