I met Harry about 12 years ago after a match, in the Copthorne hotel in Old Trafford.  We had a good  long chat together and I recalled with him the time he had every one talking ,when during the world cup he came out of his goal and headed the ball as it came into the square. He told me that keepers didn't come off their line in those days.  A really lovely man and such a gentleman.
RIP Harry


Great post, thank you.  :)

I can only recall him as a manager during his twilight years. Some lovely coverage and articles written since his departure. RIP

Harry was a hero of mine when I was a teenager.  Back in the day I recall myself and my friends admiring people who did great things or worked hard to get where they were.  Aspirations have changed - hedonistic, vain airheads are today's heroes - preferably with mental problems.
No answer is an answer.

I am of sufficient age to remember him as a great Goalkeeper, as well as a great individual.  O0

It is not because I cannot explain that you won't understand.
