I miss standing in the stands and watching the skill he had, whilst the wind whistled in through the open corners and froze my whatsits.

Yes, he was a great lad and was sadly missed.

One of only 2 men to score for England in a World Cup final.....a "new breed of player, who plays in midfield and regularly scores goals!"

A quiet man off the field, a giant on it.

Am I wrong in thinking that since 30th July 1966 that England, the country, has never again celebrated such a feeling of collective euphoria thanks to Martin Peters and his team mates?

No, I don't think you are wrong there, David
