Trotty!

Up there with the great Dennis Amiss for me.

I've set out my thoughts about Trotty, "borrowing" a couple of comments from this forum and also invoking the spirit of our good friend Kim Jones.  I hope he wouldn't have disapproved:

What do other posters here think about the idea of those of us who have enjoyed Trotty's career clubbing together to make a small gift of thanks to him at the end of the season?
Not sure how we would organise it but would be interested to know what people think.

It's a very nice idea Terry and I'm sure many of us understand the sentiments but I'm not sure a token gift adds much to what has already been expressed here. As you suggest, the logistics would also be a challenge.

I suspect we can rely on Stingray to have the oven on at the appropriate time to bake him a cake. I'll have a piece.

Yes a lovely idea Terry. Passing the buck, I know, but if someone can sort out the logistics count me in. If someone can arrange contribution by plastic it would make it very easy to cough up.

I agree, I think it’s a lovely idea. I’m happy to co-ordinate & make a cake!

England very sensibly making use of Trotty's knowledge and experience:
