Jimmy Armfield RIP

Just seen that ex Blackpool and England full back has died. Loved his comments when he was on radio for the BBC.

Always enjoyed listening to him. Such an unaffected personality from a different era, but who also didn't just go on about how things we're so much better back then. Had a modern mind about the game. RIP

RIP.

If I recall, he was Leeds United manager when we won there in the Cup in 1976.

Just seemed like the epitome of a proper old school footballer and gentleman.

His voice just had a comforting quality about it. His views always well measured.

And came across a normal and humble man.

Listened to Radio 5 talking about him earlier.
They were saying how he was asked how disappointed he must have been to miss the 1966 world cup due to an injury. His answer was along the lines of - not really as I was just excited that we won the cup!

Similarly a recent interview he was asked "How would you like to be remembered?" He said: "I don't know really -- does it really matter?"

I know nothing about him before apart from being a commentator. He must have been a super star of his day, even took Leeds to a European Cup final as their manager.

I also remember him when he was boss of the Leeds team that Palace beat at Elland Road in the 4th Round of the FA Cup, still one of Palace’s greatest ever away victories.

Armfield had lead the same Leeds team to the European Cup Final only 8 months before, I think there were only two or possibly three changes in their side, it was full of some the greatest players of the time, nearly all of them club legends to this day, 42 years on.

Jimmy Armfield was a suberb servant to his club Blackpool as a player, a brief but quite useful manager at Bolton and then Leeds and whenever I heard him speak, he seemed quite level headed and honest, never fawning over the big names as seems to be the case with many of his former contemporaries in the media.

Shame we won’t have game this weekend to honour his memory, I would say he was exactly the type of man that helped to make our game great -RIP Jimmy Armfield.

A sad loss.

A great pundit on the radio and so unassuming with it.

I would be amazed if anyone has a bad word to say about him.

Sounded like he was absolutely loving it at whatever game he was commentating on, which got you more involved.

Compared to some of the miserable ***** like Lawrenson who tended to moan about everything, making you wonder why the **** he bothered turning up at all.

Tremendous player that some of us were lucky to see play against Palace.

And an England player that was appreciated for his sportmanship and skill.

Agree with the posts above about listening to him on the radio while commentating on matches - reminded me of the difference that John Arlott made when he was a commentator on cricket matches.

RIP
