I don’t know what to say, I know he’d be very proud.   I’m proud, and I know he was delighted to play with so many great footballers. When he won the record for most goals in a season, he never said it was his record because he felt it belonged to the entire team.  Whenever they talked about it he always said that it was shared between 25 blokes.  He said ‘they all helped me to score, I only finished it’.  I’m so pleased with this recognition for him.  Thank you.” Alan Johnson, son of Tommy receiving the Hall of Fame award in January 2004
