    Yes l remember being told he had moved house to make things easier with his heart but he looked pretty fit.
    Remember him at the meeting in Northwich when he said he could easily play on modern pitches but how many modern stars could do it on the pitches in his day? Interesting question but I reckon David Silva could dance over any surface hardly touching the ground.

    Really sad news, R.I.P Glynn, a true City legend, and deepest condolences to all your loving family. What I find as I get older (58 coming up), I was born in the year Glynn made his debut, we tend to reminisce more about those times we saw our greats and legends play, and it brings me always to me Dad who sadly passed in 2002, he played for ‘City B‘ in the day and was an ever present at Maine Road as a disabled supporter, through thick and thin and even through his own physical hardships. Me dads love of football and everything City transcended into me and my family, thinking back it brings tears to my eyes, thinking of Glynn and the lads in the day, his family and his legacy with young Tommy, it instils in me pride and privilege, to have seen Glynn play and to know, even though me dad never got to see our current success in his lifetime, he sits in paradise watching his beloved City, now able welcome Glynn to the rest of the Blue Heavener’s. Good night God Bless Glynn. Like me dad a legend!

    RIP Glyn.
    Probably the best Manchester City left back during my life.

    Sad news.
    You reach a time in life where all the heroes of your youth seem to be disappearing and Glyn is the latest. Seems to have been a nice unassuming man, and City through-and-through.

    Suspect that in his prime he would have walked into even the great current City team and made the left-back berth his own ?

    I have a facebook group page celebrating the 1986 FA Youth Cup winning team.
    Some of the players are members of the group and here are their tributes to Glyn;

    Ian Scott
    Absolute gentleman was Glyn. He will be sadly missed by all who came across him.
    As a coach educator I would tell budding new coaches that as a coach you will be remembered for ever by the young people you influence, Glyn will be remembered forever by the young players he worked with. RIP Glyn and thanks for the memories

    David Boyd
    Sad news indeed. Glyn was always such a positive character and what a player!

    Steve Macaulay

    Wasn’t that Dennis Tueart?

    If the banner at the '76 League Cup final was to be believed, it was!

    I also saw one in the Centenary FA Cup Final that Nicky Reid could eat 3 Shredded Wheat.
