Ron Wol was born when god was a just a boy. He was the man who taught Moses the offside trap and advised Napoleon to always keep his hand on his wallet.
It was Ron that Bill Nicholson rang on the eve of the double win for advice. It was in that call that Nicholson not only learned about flow, but the best stalls to buy langoustines from at Billingsgate Market.
Jurgen Klinsmann learned how to carry three pints of best bitter, 2 packets of peanuts and Hamlet cigar without spilling a drop under Ron’s careful tutor-ledge.
Jim Henson based Statler and Waldorf on Ron after he saw Ron talking to himself in a shop window on the Tottenham High Road after a heavy loss at home to Athletico Neasdon in a 1972 Inter Toto 2nd leg replay.
‘Ronglish, A Modern Guideline For Words’ has been misprinted in 27 languages and a best seller in no less than 3 different postcodes.
Ron, we salute you.
