Croon In Peace
The former West Ham player and manager of Norwich, Manchester City, AFC Bournemouth and Birmingham City - to name just a handful - was of that era when the manager was a true character and figurehead. During his time at West Ham, a number of other managing giants emerged in Dave Sexton, Malcolm Allison and Frank O'Farrell. Like these guys, Bond was larger than life.
One of those rare breed of Gentlemen Managers. Rest in peace John Bond. The game of football will miss you.
