Just pointing out there's no Ray Wilkins thread on here...
Why don't you start one then?
i agree. 'no ray wilkins'
He was a great player and very good giving his opinion on live games.
i hear he's quite keen on people who stay on their feet
He was much better with Roger de Courcey's hand up his arse.
Heh. I think Raymond had the worst ever record of a Palace player. Played one, got a yellow card, broke his foot, got subbed off and we lost 6-1. Can't remember what the score was at the time he left the pitch. Couple of lovely sideways passes I remember though.
When I weigh up my annoyance with ray's version of co-commentating against the enjoyment I get from reading the explosive and hilarious reaction to it on twitter I usually conclude that ol' raymondo is a force for good in the world if del boy had gone to Italy for a year in his younger days, he'd have turned out like ray.
roll with it Ray..
So said Wilkins turns up as guest footie celeb at a kid's tournament my daughter was playing in at the weekend to present the awards. ("Who the hell is he dad"?) He rolls up two hours late, chats with and is all very touchy feely with each boy individually as he presents their medals, but then just shakes hands and says nothing to any of the girls. Sexist twat.
I see he got pulled over for being over the limit whilst driving home later. Tee hee.
He was very rude to a ballboy in the '86 world cup iirc.
My word...did he manage to stay on his feet ?
Apparently the car was weaving from side to side...
He'll always be Butch.
Get better soon Ray
Ray Wilkins: Ex-England captain in critical condition in London hospital
Sounds quite serious. I wish him well.
Just seen 'more to follow' reports that he has died. RIP.
Story here. RIP Ray
Ray Wilkins, former England midfielder, dies aged 61
Sad to hear, but he lived and played a good (if a little short) life
sad news - RIP Butch I can just about remember him bursting onto the scene when he was 17 at Chelsea.
Yeah him and his brother Graham, they came through a very good Chelsea youth team while the rest of the set up at Stamford Bridge was pretty dire.
I remember seeing him play in 1975 (ish) against West Brom. Wilkins for Chelsea and Bryan Robson for West Brom were a cut above the rest of the field.
Sad news indeed. Here's the official Chelsea take.
Ray Wilkins 1956-2018
And he was made captain at 18 wasn't he ? Which still sounds astonishing.
Big European game tonight and Ray steals the thunder
It does. There were still some big names around like Ron Harris and Peter Bonetti but Ray was up for it despite his young age.
That goal he scored against Belgium in Euro 80 where he assisted himself was brilliant
RIP Ray top man and would like add he also played for Crystal Palace
Separate names with a comma.
