Who am I?

An individual, of no great importance, who is unable to the see the natural world as a place for competition. I catch fish, watch birds, derive immense pleasure from simply looking at butterflies, moths, bumble-bees, etc - without the need for rules! I am Dylan and this is my blog - if my opinions offend? Don't bother logging on again - simple!

One of football's greatest assets.

It was with real sadness that I learnt of the passing of Jimmy Hill. I never had the privilege of seeing him., in all his pomp, during his prolific spell at Fulham (boo - hiss) My memories of this wonderful character are as front man for the BBC Match of the Day program. What he achieved in his time on earth are a mind-blowing list of vision over adversity - RIP Jim - you did good!

A truly inspirational character in a world full of deluded clowns.
Every player, in the modern era, owes Jimmy a great debt - it was due to his efforts that
resulted in the abolition of the maximum wage!

  1. When I was a youngster Dyl, Jimmy Hill was just a big-chinned geezer on the telly. But then I found out about his innovative mind, his care for the welfare of fellow footballers and his vision. There are not many footballing people who have been genuine game-changers. He was.
