Ken Barnes RIP

Just noticed on another forum, that City legend Ken Barnes passed away today.

He was responsible for spotting and bringing through a number of youngsters, and my thoughts and condolences go out to Peter and his family

Very sad news if this is true. Ken was a corking player for us and also served us for many, many years in different roles.

R.I.P. Barnesey. A true City leg end for sure.

A player I'm too young to know firsthand, but a name I can't fail to recognise and respect for his service to the club.

RIP.

Fantastic bloke and great servant to the club, not only as a player but as assistant manager, coach, and chief scout who spotted Paul Lake and David White amongst others - probably had something to do with Peter Barnes coming to the club as well !!!

Played only one first team match in the first 4 years with the club and didn't become a first team regular until he was 26 but went on to be regarded as one of the best uncapped English mid-fielders ever.

RIP Beaky

Very sad news.

He was a great man. Loved his football and was very knowledgeable. A true City great both as a footballer then on the management side particularly as Chief Scout as I recall. I had the pleasure of a number of conversations with him and he was always approachable, good humoured and told it as it was.

My thoughts are with his family and friends.

RIP Ken.

i was fortunate to have watched almost every home game that Ken played and he was undoubtebly the best uncapped player I ever saw.How he was never picked for England beggars belief. I seldom saw him misplace a pass and he was what today we would call a defensive midfielder. He was also a tireless worker for the club after he retired as a player. A true blue through and through.
My thoughts are with Peter(also a City legend) and all his family.
RIP Ken

Firstly, RIP to a Legend.

Secondly, if it is true (as we are basically trusting a source on another forum), why have the club not put something on the official site? Very, very poor MCFC.
