Seemed a decent man man, good pundit/radio co-commentator and by all accounts since before my time a high class fullback. Sad at such a time for Blackpool fans to lose this connection to better times in their history. Jimmy Armfield played for England when you could still be a one club man, and a rarity this, in the town you grew up in

RIP Jimmy Armfield

Loved his voice, and his thoughtful views. I remember him saying one night on a midweek commentary "welcome to Boundary Park, a ground sat so high on the hills it's just an 8 pence bus ride to heaven"

As well as being a fine footballer and excellent media pundit, he served as organist, churchwarden and treasurer at St Peter’s in Blackpool. He was also made a lay canon of Blackburn Cathedral. It is sobering to learn that when he retired in 1970 he was earning 75 a week. Pictured here with someone else who deserves a knighthood To view the link you have to Register or Login

So sorry to hear this. He was a true gentleman, a very good full back, very loyal to Blackpool and a wonderful broadcaster. RIP Jimmy.

Just listening to Ian Holloway talking about him and how excited he was about Blackpool getting promoted to the PL. Seems like a lifetime ago that he was at Palace. Great character.

Only remember him as a pundit, but he was very good and always very fair, Pretty obvious he had a great love for Blackpool FC, as well !

RIP to a proper old school bloke.

Absolutely.

Not a victim of hyperbole. Not a screamer but a reasoned, intelligent, balanced, clear and expert pundit in his latter years. Sadly gone but RIP

Some of you may have seen it a long time ago, but Eagle Eye once transcribed a section of Jimmy Armfield's commentary from Palace's match at Anfield in 1991. Eddie McGoldrick was magnificent that night and the fans sang non-stop throughout the second half.

The Radio 5 team were very complimentary all night and a Palace fan called Andy Phillips sent a transcript, which we published. Thought it would be nice to reproduce it, it's a nice read.

Lovely man who loved Football. Erudite and interesting pundit and co commentator that never lost his no nonsense northern background. He reminded me of what football once was and how it was once played.
RIP Jimmy Armfield and thank you.
