I know it isn't common to post condolences in this section, as it get's very club specific.
However for those of us of a certain age, Philip Greene was the voice of Irish football. I dunno how many times I remember his reports when leaving the Brandywell on a Sunday afternoon or coming back from an away game in the 1980s and 1990s.
Tifo poles, sausage rolls and a few goals.

Trophy Manager - online football managment game - I like it - I think I'm getting obsessed with it though.
He just had a lovely radio voice, and I'm so pleased I can remember his broadcast from the late 70's-mid 80's. They were special times, no mobiles, teletext, obv no internet either, one source of getting your away game update in those days. Rte radio one, and no one did it better than Phillip Greene.
