    A very good player in an excellent Ipswich side assembled by Bobby Robson.
    RIP Paul.

    Bit before my time so never saw him, but talk about bad timing bless him. 1 more day to see England in the final.

    RIP

    One of the many very likeable characters from Bobby Robson’s Ipswich team
    RIP Paul

    Your palms are holding her neck and thumbs are at her ears regulating the speed of her head as she swallows and then sucks up your machinery. She is topping up your engine oil for the cross-country coming up. Your RPM is hitting a new high. To wait any longer would be to lose prime time... She picks up a Bugatti's momentum. You want her more at a Volkswagen's steady trot. Squeeze the maximum mileage out of your gallon of gas. But she's eating up the road with all cylinders blazing.

    On the off chance, a last minute decision, I popped up to Ipswich from Chelmsford one Saturday to watch Forest play Robson's Ipswich.

    Mariner scored one sublime goal that day at the end of a flowing movement which was perfection. He might have scored others, but I forget, remembering only that goal and that we lost.

    A fine player and another who has gone too early.

    I remember him being a thorn in the side as part of that exciting Ipswich team, but most of all I remember his two goals against France in the World Cup in ‘82. When you look back now, to not qualify for the next stage after a win against France and a pair of 0-0s against Spain and Germany seems very harsh.

    THE TRUTH IS THERE AND WITH IT I GO TO THE END OF THE WORLD .

    Aye, it wouldn't happen now.

    You can finish bottom and still qualify

    RIP big man.

    Sad news, a great player for Ipswich and England, even sadder for an ex England player to die so close to Englands greatest achievement for 55 years… one more reason to win it.

    One of the best centre-forwards of his era who, at 68, has died far-too-young in my view. RIP PM.

    Lovely player - though funnily always remember him more for missing a couple of sitters in the '78 FA cup against Arsenal - Wark hit the post a couple of times I think and I remember watching David Geddis (sic?) and thinking he was going to be a world beater...

    I hate to see players from that Era passing away coz it brings the realisation of my own mortality that bit closer

    What a great team that Ipswich side were.

    68 is no age.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”
