Also, sorry lads if there is another thread to him. I just wanted to get the fellas name back in the picture like the boy's are pointing out about his current situation. He was a massive influence when I watched him. Am I right in saying he was Bill's last signing?

I knew Ray Kennedy was Shanks' last signing, but I never realised until I saw this a few minutes ago, that it was the day he resigned. Bloody hell, that was a close bit of timing.

Shit. I’m just to young to remember having seen him but my dad (who now has Parkinson’s himself) raves on him. Integral part of Paisley’s early success. 
 

He’d suffered with that disease for many years - I remember hearing him speaking about it probably about 30 years ago. Very sad.

My Dad's just been diagnosed with it too. Ray was a brilliant player, very sad that he suffered for so long. I loved that interview when Paisley spoke about him saying he was the player all the coaches asked about.

Ah no, i'm absolutely gutted. He was my favourite player as a kid, alongside The King. 

This all day. I was actually gutted that I wasn't left-footed so couldn't 'be' Ray when we were playing. Phenomenal player, RIP.

So sad.Diagnosed withParkinson’s aged 35! My mum was diagnosed at 70.

 

Rest in peace Ray, you were a true great. 5 league cups and 3 European cups in 7 years.

    • Jota is much more effective at bringing others into the play than Firmino these days.  It’s like your clinging on to something someone’s said a few years ago and not looking at the evidence right in front of your eyes.  A lost cause.

    • Yeah.....some serious money being paid out.   Their wage to turnover ratio was up at something mad like 85% - totally unsustainable and they have been making massive losses year after year with no signs of their revenues growing.   They are in trouble.   Fuck them...i always used to say 'no don't want them down its bad for the city, and bad for the older decent blues'...but now - fuck them, hope they drop, hope they fall through leagues and frankly i wouldn't be arsed if they go bust - and way they are going both are a realistic possibility.
