Firmani, Eddie He took us for football when I was at school (1968) he was always very determined to get the best out of us. Also very very smartly dressed and had a great car, a bit flash! Mind you he did have the money, charisma and talent. Also my girlfriend at the time used to go into a deep swoon every time she laid eyes on him. In short, one of the greats of the beautiful game. x

FIRMANI, Eddie Eddie & Joanna lived in our development, Forest Glen in Naples Florida for a few years. I remember Eddie was always a barrel of laughs. We had some good times with them. Eddie injured his ankle & had a hard time recovering from that injury. Eventually they moved out of Forest Glen & we lost track of each other. Wherever you are Eddie, Best Wishes to you & Joanna from Loretta & I.

FIRMANI, Eddie Eddie was my hero at Southend United in the mid-60’s. A skilful and exciting goal scorer, I even painted his picture on my school technical drawing folder. If anyone knows how to get hold of him, we are trying to contact him to join Southend United Ex-Players Association ((SUEPA). Email if you have any news please.
