Last updated : 27 April 2007 By Jim Bonner
Sad news today people as it has been announced that former England World Cup winner and Pompey manager has died at the age of 61 following a heart attack.

Ballie will always be remembered for getting us promoted in the 80's and producing the original "Great Escape" act in 1998 which was effectively the beginning of the Milan Mandaric era.

Ball's loss has been a huge loss for football but despite the stick he took from us at times, the joyful memories he left us will never be forgotten by those who witnessed them.
