Tom Petty died of a drug overdose. Pain meds, but still if anyone had him.

He had a decent side , of course inherited mainly from Revie but also partly Clough - got that side to the European Cup final . Anyone who followed in the immediate years after Revie was going to have a tough job , but he did well . In those days clubs and fans were far more patient with managers . Different era , though I was around 15 yrs old back then , and it was hard times after all the success of Revie - what would we give now for a side even of Armfield's stature . It was still a very good side .
