Probably only @OzzyOzzyOzzyOiOiOi and those of us ‘lucky’ enough to watch soccer (not football, natch) on the SBS in Straya would realise how much of an icon Les Murray was. TISM wrote a great tune about him
Think Jimmy Hill or Brian Moore in the late 1970s to realise how important he was (details here). He was also a nice bloke and came down to training at the Clifton Hill u/7s when I was coaching in 2001 after I sent him an invitation by email (not even expecting a response). The look of awe on the faces of the parents, kids (and the old Greek blokes smoking, drinking and gambling illegally in the clubhouse) is a treasured memory.
I hate that Straya is poorer for his loss.
