@KentWomble - That old adage "Never meet your hero" Pfft. I've always enjoyed meeting mine, ever since shyly asking for his autograph over 40 years ago...
@combyne - And I was delighted to have seen him play on so many occasions. #Legend
@daysofspeed - A giant of a man who typifies all that is good. Viva el Presidente.
@bethell71 - First keeper I saw play. In awe of Sir Dickie #DonsLegend

Mick Adams - The man I stood behind when first watching Wimbledon at Plough Lane. When he ran out, I knew we would be okay. Still feel the same when I see him now. Hero, legend, gentleman...
Martin Allen - Dickie's speech was fantastic. Highlight of the whole day for me by a long way.
Sharon Armfield - I knew all about him before my first ever game and he had finished playing by then!
