I echo your comments, but look at the memories we have from that short period with us.RIP.Every now and again, you hear of someone famous passing away and it stops you in your tracks for a few seconds. Lennon, Bowie and others in the music world. Same thing when Paul Mariner died. Obviously not as famous as them and there have been many more famous footballers who have passed away, but when I heard the great Paul Mariner had died, I actually stopped what I was doing. One of those 'Oh no' moments in life.
He was the standout player in the Argyle side when I first started going (v Hull in an FA cup replay). Sadly, he only stayed for another 9 months, but what a player. Nobody like him in an Argyle shirt since. RIP Paul.
I remember this game too. Mariner gave Moore the run around so much in the first half, with the score I think 4-0 at that stage, Bobby Moore was taken off at half time.RIP Paul. He played in the first game I can remember going to 4-0 win over Fulham in 1975, Fulham had Bobby Moore in the team.
