Liverpool Football Club was deeply saddened to hear news today that former defender Bill Jones has died.The 89-year-old passed away from natural causes at the Countess of Chester Hospital on Boxing Day.His death will be marked along with that of Avi Cohen - who died this morning aged 54 after a motorcycle accident last week - with a period of applause ahead of tonight's clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers.Both sets of players will also wear black armbands.Bill, whose grandson Rob Jones also played for Liverpool, stacked up 277 appearances and 17 goals during the 1940s and 1950s.The centre-half helped us win the First Division title immediately after World War II, scoring twice in the 'decider' against Wolves.Bill played in our first ever Wembley Cup final against Arsenal in 1950, but had to settle for a runners-up medal.He was capped by his country twice in the centre of defence, though he was versatile enough to operate in several positions at club level.Liverpool Football Club offers its thoughts to his family at this time.
I think the same, can't stand him, but if you could have a £1million pound cheque or steve bruces head hollowed out and filled with pound coins which would you have?
OldCold has merked so many people over the last 5 hours. Awesome.
OldCold you are an enigma.
To play for us is one thing, to have your grandson play for us too is amazing. How proud must he have felt.RIP Bill.
Just seen this on LFChistory too,"We are very proud of his achievements and I have to admit he is a better player than I was. He is a lot faster for a start."Bill talking proudly of his grandson, Rob Jones.Shame about Rob's injuries.
@ Veinticinco de Mayo The way you talk to other users on this forum is something you should be ashamed of as someone who is suppose to be representing the site.
Ahh, pressing refresh and waiting for news... just like the bad old days.Liverpool porn, this.

RIP Grandpa Jones.
All the best to you and yours too.
