    Really sad news today despite the fact that he hasd been ill for a while now.

    Brilliant player, World Cup winner and a nice man whom I had the pleasure of meeting when we both stayed at the same hotel in Menorca on holiday a few years back before his illness.

    Family statement from the West Ham site:

    β€œIt is with profound sadness that we announce that Martin passed away peacefully in his sleep at 4.00am this morning. A beloved husband, dad and grandad, and a kind, gentle and private man, we are devastated by his loss but so very proud of all that he achieved and comforted by the many happy memories we shared. We will be making no further comment and kindly ask that the privacy of our family is respected at this extremely difficult time.”

    My thoughts and prayers go out to Martin and his family RIP.

    One of only a few that deserve to be called a legend R.I.P Martin Peters.

    Another passing away. So sad.
    Peters was one of the great midfielders ahead of his time.
    RIP

    “Spurs and Chelsea will hold a minute’s applause today in memory of Martin Peters, who passed away at the age of 76 on Saturday morning.

    Former West Ham and Tottenham midfielder Peters, who scored England’s second goal in the 1966 final against West Germany, died in his sleep following a long battle against Alzheimer’s disease.” Evening Standard 22/12
