Sad day for football.

I lived in Preston for a bit and the guy was like god there. True football legend.

Famously, a plumber but also drove a tank in ww2.

And noted for his humility.

Don't like playing the modern footballer card. ...but let's go over that again.....A great player who was a plumber and drove a bloody tank in the £#%&!ing war!

Eat that, everyone today!

He's a god in Preston. There's a chippy with his face painted on the shutters, true story.

Think Moyes got his beloved Preston team promoted.

Well done on your #Moyesout point score.

RIP Finney.

So long Tom.

Along with maybe Matthews and Charlton the greatest English player.
