AISA is saddened by the news that Terry Neill, former player, captain and manager of the Arsenal, has died. He was 80.
There have been numerous formal tributes, and for many supporters, Terry will always be remembered as the manager who took the cub to three FA Cup Finals, and that memorabe last-minute Wembley win against Manchester United. For this writer, it is as a player he is most fondly remembered, working tirelessly and intelligently for both the Arsenal and Northern Ireland. For us all, he will always be a member of the Arsenal family.
Very sad to see this news, good to see many tributes from fans of the other clubs he managed as well. I loved one quote he gave when player/manager of Northern Ireland. Asked who the first name on his team sheet would be he replied “Me, then George Best followed by Pat Jennings.” Lovely sense of humour. A true Arsenal man.
