Wonderful obituary from 2000AD today:
Anyone I knew from Hull fucking LOVED himTerry Neill (1942 - 28 July 2022)
Terry was player and manager of both Arsenal and Northern Ireland. He also played for and managed Hull.
After winning 59 caps and being player manager of N.I. he managed Spurs for two years before heading back to Highbury for 7 years as Gunners manager working with coach Don Howe.
They reached a string of finals w/ Brady, MacDonald, Stapleton, O'Leary and Jennings on board but only managed one trophy the 1979 FA Cup with a memorable 3-2 win over Man Utd.
Terry left football in 1983 aged only 41 after being sacked by Arsenal.

actively encouraged West Indian doctors and nurses to emigrate to Britain.
Roy said he even attended a speech Powell gave in Jamaica!
He so impressed Jamaicans that they thought they would be welcome and have no problems finding work Britain.
