I remember him with respect & for his considered, deliberative speaking style.
He brought in Davie Burnside, Oh Yes! Good to watch during the game & for his pre-match entertainment: keepy-uppies & the like.
And of course Boxing Day 1969, featuring 8 local lads! in that 6-0 win over Torquay!

I remember it well. Somewhere in my basement I still have a newspaper clipping of that game, glued to a piece of cardboard to preserve it for posterity.

I brushed past him once in Dingles during his time as manager - made my day.

RIP. One of that outstanding group of players that NI produced in the late 50s - Blanchflower, Gregg, McParland, he then became their most successful manager. I thought at the time that it was a great appointment but Argyle at that time were on a real downward trajectory. I remember seeing him play here for Luton, early in 60-61 season. A month later he made a surprise move to Everton, helping them to 5th, and then 4th in 61-62. The following season he played in half their games when they took the title.Over his career, at Sunderland, Luton, Everton and Port Vale he managed to score almost 1 every 4 outings, creditable for a winger. And later he famously returned in January 75 as manager when he managed Everton to a 3-1 win in FAC 3. But I suppose he will always remembered for his second spell as NI manager and their amazing WC exploits.

RIP Billy.
Fond memories of his Argyle team, even if we weren't successful.
I particularly liked the 'Torquay will beat us over my dead body' saga!
A true legend for Northern Ireland and rightly so.

I remember a sponsored walk out around Crownhill, Forder Valley and back to Home Park and getting a badge(I think) saying, ‘I’m backing Billy Bingham’ I raised 10 shillings.
