Guest Man on the Post

It was great to see that, despite his worsening Parkinsons Disease, Ray Kennedy was able to attend the Liverpool v Arsenal match this week. With all the millions sloshing around in the Premiership I thought it was a disgrace that Ray had to sell his medals, caps, shirts etc. when he fell on hard times due to his illness. :SM_carton: Was there not a fund to prevent this sort of thing happening? Remember that when Ray played he was not earning the mega-bucks enjoyed by today's players.

When he was with your lot he played as a striker alongside Radford, didn't he ? You get that retreat down the pitch when good players move north.

When Ray "Butch" Wilkins was at Chelsea he was an exciting attacking midfielder specialising in 30-yard goals. Then he went to Manchester United and he made more square passes than Spongebob in a cornflake packet.

Then why have you got the useless idiot Ray Wilkins back involved with your team Isaac - perhaps he orders the half time drinks because I have never rated him.

Isaac, a rather silly point to make on this thread! I thought even you would show some compassion for the suffering Ray Kennedy must have endured after being struck down with Parkinsons Disease at the age of 33. :angry2: :angry2:

Just so you know you dont get "struck down" with Parkinson's disease. Its a condition that deteriates the cells over a prolonged period of time. You could have it for a very long time without realising or it being diagnosed. He should move to Cornwall, best place in the UK to get the disease. He is bloody unlucky to get it at such a young age though, but if he is being treated well then he can live a long and fulfilling life.

Could the club have not done more before he had to sell his medals? Apologies for my ignorance if they have done so.
