Gordon Banks was on Radio 4 yesterday, hinted that FIFA and the FA may look at flying the surviving members of the squad who are able to go to Russia out. Interesting to think who of the squad could actually go? I count 6 of the 11 could attend?

 

  1. Gordon Banks
  2. George Cohen
  3. Jack Charlton
  4. Bobby Charlton
  5. Geoff Hurst
  6. Roger Hunt

Martin Peters and Nobby Stiles would possibly be too ill (although not impossible) and Bobby Moore, Ray Wilson and Alan Ball are dead.

Stiles and Wilson are way too ill.Roger Hunt also has Alzheimers.

Apparently Geoff Hurst used to organise their re-unions according to Gordon Banks interview with The Evening Standard yesterday but he's no longer able to. So it might only be five that could actually make it, or he might have stopped doing it because some of them are gone now.

Yes, I guess being dead would count as "way too ill" to attend.

 

Roger Hunt's is in the early stages of going batty though; well enough to give an interview to Warrington Guardian about Jesse Lingard.

Sad news about Gordon Banks dying, would expect us to loose another World Cup Winner from the 66 team this year, think it will be between Jimmy Greaves and Nobby Stiles, will go with Stiles so no doubt it will be someone like Jack Charlton.

Jack Charlton got to Banks funeral but looks fucking old.

 

Mind you, Ross Kemp's really let himself go...
