Mike, Its a reality check and warning to us all.

Great news, that he’s on the mend. None of us are invincible, and it makes you appreciate the simple things in life, we often take for granted.

Let’s hope he’s able to enjoy a good quality of health and life. A great keeper in his day at Real.

Mike G, thanks for the news which I must admit came as a bit of a shock, but as Paul says you never know what is going to happen to anyone, at anytime!

Remember the little ginger haired guy who never stopped running that used to play for us. Even Wolstenholme described him as running himself daft as he crossed for Geoff Hurst to score the 3rd in the '66 WCF.

At 61 years old he died from a heart attack running out to sort out a bonfire in the back garden. 12 years 9 days ago.

If it can happen to Bally, it can happen to anyone.

Reminds me of celebrity trainer Bob Harper (of The Biggest Loser fame) having a heart attack - it felt like some sort of cosmic punchline at the time.

He was 50, but still - one of the fittest guys around, perfect diet, etc... etc...
