Just reinforces the word legend for me, when your time is drawing to a close, I don’t imagine there is any greater feeling of knowing the lives you have touched and will never be forgotten...Amazing to think his name is still sung more than 40 years after he last played for us. Hopefully will still be sung in another 40 years
I am the same. He is The King.An absolutely fantastic tribute about Colin by Martin Tyler on Sky Sports. Said in today’s market Colin would have been the most expensive player in the world. He seemed genuinely upset and it was really moving listening to that.
I’m in my 53rd year of watching City and part of the reason that I love City so much was Colin. I have to admit that I shed a few tears earlier when I found out. The last time that man made me cry was when he came back on Boxing Day 77. Brilliant player, lovely man, who I had the pleasure of meeting a few times. I sat next to him once at a game and couldn’t concentrate. He was my hero and had no idea...... RIP Colin
