Jimmy Armfield R.I.P

Sad news about Jimmy. It's a cliche I know, but he truly was a gentleman. Will miss his insights on the BBC as he was the only one I could really listen too. Savage and the rest just irritate me.

Agreed Damien, I had a lot of respect for Jimmy and he often talked a lot of sense.

Like Tim Vickery so easy to listen to. I will miss him.

Was very sad to hear the news about Jimmy Armfield passing away.

This is a very good podcast about his life for anyone interested: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b092jsj1
