Default Ray Wilson - 1966 World Cup Winner - RIP

Ray Wilson, England's left back in the 1966 World Cup winning side has died at the age of 83. Like his team mates, Martin Peters and Nobby Stiles, Ray had been battling the crippling effects of dementia. A good solid full back in his club days at Huddersfield and Everton, Ray Wilson will go down in history as a member of the only England team to lift the Jules Rimet trophy. RIP

Yep. Bobby Moore and Alan Ball went before him. I remember that day so well. The whole country had a party. Those blokes were our heroes as lads.

Lets face it, England will never win the world cup again.

Those men that did win it deserve every plaudit they get.

I think most England players sold their winners medal.

I know none of the winning West Germany side of 1974 have.

They won it in 1966 in spite of the FA. Looking back, that was a heck of a good team picked by a master tactician. Ramsey often said he was still experimenting with his formation right up to the semi-final with Portugal. Most people were saying we didn't have a prayer without Greaves in the team but Ramsey knew what he was doing. We'll not see their like again.

Depressing that nothing has happened since that means we don't have to talk about '66 all the time.

I remember seeing Jack Charlton interviewed and he expressed surprise when Ramsey told him he was in the team. Jack said something like "but I'm not the best centre-half in the country" but Ramsey replied that he was 'perfect' for the role he had in mind. Sometimes it's about picking the best players for a system, rather than the most skillful.

I always liked Jack Charlton. He could make the odd mistake and he wasn't the quickest but he had some bloody good team mates at Leeds to cover. Matt Busby tried to sign him in the early 60s but Revie wouldn't sell at any price.
