    Can't be many left alive from that squad? :( had 3/4 die in the last few months.

    I can think of Hurst, Callaghan, who else?

    Indeed, as time passes there's inevitably a dwindling number of these guys left now.

    Rest in Peace.

    R.I.P Always sad.

    Bobby Charlton?

    From the German team in the 1966 Final, goalie Hans Tilkowski, Helmut Haller and Lothar Emmerich died (AFAIK). German Captain Uwe Seeler just celebrated his 85th Birthday last week.

    Yeah Ian Callaghan is still alive and I think (not 100% sure) is still involved with the club in some capacity.

    Yeah forgot about Bobby Charlton, for some bizarre reason I always seem to have it in my head he's passed away.

    Possibly because Jack only passed away a few months ago.

    To be fair the match was nearly 60 years ago.

    Wonder how many who were actually at the game are still around. Bet not many of the 100,000 are still with us.

    Obviously learned his trade during the years he spent with us, ol’ Bertie was a fiery character but became a great midfielder. Remembered with the utmost respect at Birmingham..

    Sir Frank Williams, founder and former team principal of the Williams Racing Formula 1 team, has died aged 79.

    [​IMG]

    He built the team named after him into one of the most successful in the sport.

    During his time with Williams, the team won nine constructors' championships and seven drivers' titles, and dominated much of the 1980s and 1990s.

    He and daughter Claire moved away from the sport in September 2020 after selling Williams to US investors.

    In a statement, the Williams team said: "It is with great sadness that on behalf of the Williams family, the team can confirm the death of Sir Frank Williams CBE, founder and former team principal of Williams Racing, at the age of 79.

    "After being admitted into hospital on Friday, Sir Frank passed away peacefully this morning surrounded by his family.

    "Today we pay tribute to our much loved and inspirational figurehead. Frank will be sorely missed. We request that all friends and colleagues respect the Williams family's wishes for privacy at this time."

    Williams was a wheelchair user after suffering a spinal cord injury in a car crash in France in 1986.


    Sir Frank Williams dies aged 79

    Rest in Peace.

    RIP Ray Kennedy.
    A legend on the field, and brave off it fighting a horrible disease. As someone who has seen Parkinson's affecting one of my relatives, I know how terrible it is.

    Liverpool legend Ray Kennedy dies aged 70

    RIP
