With news of his Dementia diagnosis being made public and his likely future appearances on the List I have opened a thread for him.

Yeah, I think him and Babs will be the next "big dementia names" they wind up picking.

True depends how far advanced it is but he is too big a name to leave off future lists he will probably die in next 2 or 3 years probably too early for next year but can’t leave him of just in case. Sad news a true legend.

I doubt he has that long.

He's been out of the spotlight for ages. Missed his own brother's funeral. I think he was diagnosed a while back and that the family have more or less been forced to reveal the diagnosis due to the death of 4 of his '66 teammates this year and his repeated absence/silence. The tabloids were probably trying to get in touch persistently.

It depends if he is going into a special care home or even if he catches Covid. But I put bets on him going in the next two years.

He looked well enough at Gordon Banks funeral  18 months ago and looked like he was still a fair bit more independent than Jack was by then.  Will be gone by 2024 but hard to pinpoint.

Gets his vaccine - doesn't look too bad

Well enough to have his vaccine photo taken but not well enough to attend his brother's funeral.

He looks very normal.

He looks very thin and not quite there (which we know is true) however he doesn't look on the verge of death. Probably 2-3 years left if Covid isn't a factor. 

 

I think it would be worth putting him on the list next year assuming he's still going.

Depending on how confused he gets, they may not have made him wear one. Just a hypothesis.
