Yesterday I attended the funeral of Terry Moran who sadly died prematurely in December, age 66.
Terry was the brother of our friend on here Chris, poster only6times.

I've played footy and cards with Terry for over 40 years, he truly was the nicest and respectable bloke you could meet. Most of our footy would have been played on Sefton Park across the road from Kesey's flat.

Terry was a huge Liverpool fan who had an amazing knowledge of the club. He was a long time and frequent browser of RAWK and knew the site and some of its characters inside out. He'd often wanted to contribute to threads and provide missing information or correct some of the discussions going on but he was an unassuming person and chose not to register.
In July 2022, I finally convinced him to join and he was registered as The Man From Glenbuck. Unfortunately since then Terry's health deteriorated and he never activated his account or contributed to the site.

The service was an amazing tribute to him and how much he was loved, which had me in bits.
Terry was cremated wearing his favourite Terry McDermott shirt.
I've updated his status to Rawk Remembers.
RIP Terry.

Rest in peace Terry
If he's being asked to head the ball too frequently - which isn't exactly his specialty - it could affect his ear and cause an infection. Especially if the ball hits him on the ear directly.

Thanks John.

As you say, our Terry really was the nicest fella anyone could ever meet.
He has left a huge hole in so many lives.
He loved the Mighty Reds so much and I am made up he saw us become Champions again.

We would swap books on the Reds all the time and his knowledge was unreal. He would leave notes in between certain pages like "62/63 season this not 63/64 like the caption says" because  he had noticed something on the structure of the Old Main Stand.

He has programmes going back the 50's from our dad who made us the fanatics we are. Some of them have a ciggy stump stuck inside them. He would be about 13 and having a sly ciggy he had lifted from me dads packet in bed on the Saturday after the game, when he would hear the key in the door as me mum and dad came in from the L.M.S and would panic. His soultion was to spit in the proey and stub the ciggy out, waft the smoke and pretend he was a kip.

He never got caught.

The Saint and Sir Roger were his idols.

The club have lost a true SUPPORTER who never stopped believing we would be back to the top. A man of Shankly's best.

You'll never walk alone Terry.

Let's hope he gets his dying wish of them getting finally flushed at last.

Ah, shit! May God rest his soul and sincere condolences to his brother Chris and all their extended families. RIP.
There is nothing wrong with striving to win, so long as you don't set the prize above the game. There can be no dishonour in defeat nor any conceit in victory. What matters above all is that the team plays in the right spirit, with skill, courage, fair play,no favour and the result accepted without bitterness. Sir Matt Busby CBE KCSG 1909-1994
