I remember the game v Brighton where his white sock was red with blood. What a player.
I was up in the Boothen Stand for that match. He'd been running around with one white sock and one red sock for quite some time, then I remember him looking down at his leg and it was almost as if he'd only just noticed the blood. At that point he started limping. 😁
Wrexham fan here. First of all loss of Gordon Banks today great shame and a stalwart and great servant for your club. RIP
A lot of you may or may not be aware that Mickey Thomas a former player of yours and ours (twice) was diagnosed with stomach cancer in January 2019, Mickey starts chemo and radiotherapy treatment on 11th February (yesterday) followed by an operation to remove the tumour and then another course of chemo. Unable to work while going through treatment, Mickey has no source of income, so his friends are getting together to raise money to help cover his living and travel expenses, plus some of the medical expenses related to the treatments he requires – including having all of his teeth replaced.
He shouldn’t be worrying about money during this tough time we want his focus to be on beating this awful disease and getting back with us all as soon as possible. A crowdfunding page has been set up with this in mind www.gofundme.com/help-mickey-t-fight-cancer
Just wanted to raise awareness in case some wished to contribute.
PS Mickey no longer has the machine to make his own tenners!
So sorry to hear of mickey's illness. He's a determined fellow and Stoke legend. Wish him all the best. It's about time the Professional Footballers Association started to support their ex-players. From previous press reports It appears Gordon Taylor made enough money as its figurehead.
