Roy Sproson once told me the reason that he didn’t stay at Vale was because he was homesick. I believe he had a sad lonely ending. 
What a integral player in that fantastic LFC team.

RIP Ray Kennedy 🙏🏽
 

I heard that too,he went on to have a great career with both Liverpool and Arsenal.

And released him according to this. I wasn't born but did Matthews also get us expelled from the league  ?

 

 

He was in charge when we got expelled from the league, not the same as being responsible for getting us expelled. Not sure of who did what, but some dodgy payments were made to some young players.

Sad part is that the sorry episode led to Stanley mostly leaving football. - not that he would have necessarily made a great manager (Its a peeve of mine that good footballers are assumed to be great managers) , but still it's a unfortunate finish for a footballing legend.

Ray Kennedy was my favourite player when I was a lad. He was playing for Arsenal then, establishing himself as a brilliant young striker alongside John Radford.

In those days you did your own tv commentary while playing a game of nogger with your mates.

R.I.P Ray and condolences to your family  at this sad time.

As a reminder of how old i am, iwas in my late teens by then and, yes, unfortunately he did get us sanctioned by the FA for illegal payments to sign promising youngsters and I'm pretty sure that Ray Kennedy was one of those! We were expelled, but again from memory, thankfully voted back in by other clubs so we never actually had to play outside the football league.
