Jack Taylor OBE: 1930-2012

Cruyff decked by Uli Hoeness in Munich 
Corner flag delay in the World Cup final
Jack Taylor gives Oranje a spot kick
West Germans yet to touch the ball

Beckenbauer's protests the black rock dismissed
First penalty since the Copa began
Striding up aggressively Der Kaiser hissed 
“Taylor, you’re an Englishman!”

Gentleman Butcher from the Molineux shadow
More than a thousand games the total yield
Thirty three years officiating the show
John Keith Taylor has now left the field
