  1. One of Englands finest strikers with an amazing goal scoring record at Chelsea and Spurs has died. Never took himself too seriously! Its fitting that Chelsea play spurs today.
  2. Apparent heart attack. Report here. Sorry for short link. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/39660196 Former England and Aston Villa defender Ugo Ehiogu is in hospital after collapsing at Tottenham's training centre on Thursday. The 44-year-old, who is Spurs' Under-23s coach, received medical treatment on site being transferred to hospital by ambulance, the Premier League club confirmed. "Everyone at the club sends their best wishes to Ugo and his family," Tottenham added in a statement. Ehiogu has been at Spurs since 2014. He made over 200 appearances for Aston Villa between 1991 and 2000 before spending seven years at Middlesbrough. Ehiogu, who was capped four times by England, also played for West Brom, Leeds, Rangers and Sheffield United before retiring in 2009.
  3. Free Radio reporting that he has died. Terrible news if so. A true Villa legend. Sorry if this is in the wrong forum
  4. This deserves its own thread. So sad to just read the news. Wonderful football, great left foot and was very disappointed when we sold him. Thoughts of with his family and loved ones.
  5. Saw this in the Halesowen News. Appears to be a very sad and lonely end for one of our former players. RIP Will

    Stan Collymore reporting he has passed away.
  7. Here we go again! Same rules as before... You get five names. Five. If you list more than five names then any names from six onwards won't count. 100 points for a dead celebrity. 200 points if that celebrity is below 40 years of age on the day they die. The number of points is divided equally between every person who guesses correctly. If you are the only person to name somebody who dies then you get the full hundred. If five people guess, it's twenty points each. Decimal scores will be rounded up, ie, if three people guess then they get 34 points each, not 33.333 I'll be generous with the deadline. Entries are valid up until 23:59 January 6th 2020. Editing your post after that time will invalidate your entry into the game.

    Tommy Docherty

    Former Villa boss Tommy Docherty died today following a long illness, aged 92. The Doc managed us from 1968 – 1970 and for me did a lot to get the fans flooding back to Villa Park and to raise the profile of our great club, at a time when we were at a very, very low ebb. RIP Tommy – HEITS.
  9. being reported by a few on twitter, passed away during the night aged 73
  10. So sad, great player, was there in 83 when he scored after 1 min.
  11. Sad to hear that we have lost another World Cup winner this afternoon. Norbert “Nobby” Stiles has passed away today (aged 78) following a long battle with illness. Nobby suffered a minor stroke in 2010, and was later diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and prostate cancer. Nobby was a vital cog in both the England and Manchester United teams that lifted the World Cup in 1966 and the European Cup in 1968. Nobby was a real hard man, who was able to mark (sometimes literally) an opponent out of a game. He did so notably well when marking Eusebio in the World Cup semi-final. He will always be fondly remembered for his joyous victory jig after the 66 Final. Sir Alf now has 7 of “the boys of 66” up there with him. My thoughts are with his family. RIP Nobby!

    Ron Wylie

    Sadly, Ron Wylie passed away yesterday, at the age of 86 following a long illness. Ron was an inside forward who made 244 appearances for us between 1958 and 1965, scoring 27 goals. He joined us from Notts County for £9,000 and played 38 league games during season 1959-60, when we were promoted back to Division 1 at the first attempt as champions. One of his 5 goals that season, was scored in our 11-1 home win against Charlton. He went on to score 10 goals the following season and played in both our 1961 and 1963 League Cup finals. Ron then joined Birmingham City, for whom he made 150 appearances before hanging up his boots in 1970. He then went on to coach at Villa Park, before joining Coventry City as coach in 1975 and then from 1978 as their assistant manager until 1981. He then coached briefly abroad, before being appointed manager of WBA in 1982. He left them in 1984 and returned to Villa Park where he filled several roles, including that of reserve team coach, assistant manager, caretaker manager, scout and community liaison officer, until his retirement in 2002. My thoughts are with his family – HEITS!
  13. So, someone had to start it... again You get five names. Five. If you list more than five names then any names from six onwards won't count. 100 points for a dead celebrity. 200 points if that celebrity is below 40 years of age on the day they die. The number of points is divided equally between every person who guesses correctly. If you are the only person to name somebody who dies then you get the full hundred. If five people guess, it's twenty points each. Decimal scores will be rounded up, ie, if three people guess then they get 34 points each, not 33.333 I'll be generous with the deadline.

  14. We buried my mate on Monday, motor neurone disease. He was a week younger than me! Anyway, he had "Daniel" as his last song as we carried the coffin out, and it got me wondering what mine would be. At this present moment in time I think I'll be having "Father, son", a quite brilliant tune by Peter Gabriel. So, what do you want at your funeral?
  15. R.I.P . Lost a long battle with motor neurone disease. Terrible affliction. Supported Villa since i was 8 but as most Irish Catholics who follow English football, you always keep an eye out for Celtic. I'd watch Celtic v Rangers games when they were games that meant something. Good players. I had a real dislike for amouroso, Ricksen and Albertz yet massively respected how good they were in this fixture and got under Celtics skin.
  16. Former Villa Manager Billy McNeill passed away aged 79. Came to us early in the 86-87 Season from Man City, replacing Graham Turner, and was basically a disaster. Has the distinction of that season managing both Man City and Villa with both being relegated. The only good thing I can remember about him was an interview together with Ellis in the Brum Mail where he took critisised the breaking up and selling of the European Cup Winning team so quickly.
  17. Gordon Banks has passed away. He was our keeper in the 1966 World Cup and made that unbelievable save from Pele in the 1970 World Cup finals. He was the best goalkeeper that I have ever seen play by a country mile. Gordon also made a brilliant save from a Geoff Hurst penalty in a League Cup semi-final in the early 70s at Upton Park among others too frequent to mention He was in goal for Leicester for my first ever Villa game and not surprisingly kept a clean sheet. He also had a connection with our club having had a spell as goalkeeping coach at Villa Park. He gave a defence such confidence and was known as being as safe as The Bank of England. He had such a smile and I’m proud to say that he gave me one of them when I couldn’t resist shouting “Hallo Gordon” to him as he took his seat in the stand before one of our games at Coventry. He had time for fans. What a player he was and what a nice man. Thanks for the memories Gordon! My thoughts are with his family and with his fellow World Cup winners who have lost someone very special to them and to us.
  18. COPIED FROM LAST YEAR So, someone had to start it. I'll throw in two rules too: You get five names. Five. If you list more than five names then any names from six onwards won't count. 100 points for a dead celebrity. 200 points if that celebrity is below 40 years of age on the day they die. The number of points is divided equally between every person who guesses correctly. If you are the only person to name somebody who dies then you get the full hundred. If five people guess, it's twenty points each. Decimal scores will be rounded up, ie, if three people guess then they get 34 points each, not 33.333 I'll be generous with the deadline. Entries are valid up until 23:59 January 6th 2018. Editing your post after that time will invalidate your entry into the game.
  19. Saddened to hear of Dougs death overnight . thoughts with his friends and family , Doug kept going to the end of his days following the club . rest in peace Doug

    Neale Cooper

    Neale Cooper passed away today aged just 54 to add to the ex Villa players that we have lost this year too soon. Neal signed for Villa in 1986 and made 20 appearances for us before moving to Rangers 2 years later having had injury problems during his time at B6 that limited the number of times he was able to turn out for us. Neale made his name at Aberdeen where he was part of their 1983 European Cup Winners team. My thoughts are with his family. HEITS.
