  1. 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. Entries are valid up until 23:59 January 6th 2019. Editing your post after that time will invalidate your entry into the game.
  2. 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.
  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. 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.

    Gordon Banks

    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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

    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.

    One of the 1957 cup winners has passed.
  14. One of my early heroes "Although there was talk of a coaching job at Villa nothing materialised and Jimmy left to join Walsall, where he played into his forties then coached and managed until 1973 when he went to work at Ansells Brewery. "He continued to play for the Villa Old Stars well into his fifties and only really stopped playing after he had two knee replacements at the same time. "He was known for being bow-legged. He wasn't born that way, it was because of a stance he copied from a player back in Scotland. "In 1991 he had to have both legs broken to rectify it, and it made him about three inches taller!." "Up until the last 18 months when he was diagnosed with early onset dementia and a heart problem he was as fit as a fiddle. "He has been in residential care where he was safe, well looked after and seemed quite content. "He enjoyed his visits from ex players, including Harry Burrows, plus a couple of Villa fanatics who spent hours reminiscing with him."

  16. Saddened to hear of the death of this brave little lad today - Rest in peace Brad.
  17. It's been reported that former Newcastle midfielder Cheick Tioté has died of a heart attack aged 31, during a training session with his club side in Beijing. Tragic news, especially for such a young guy. http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/news-and-comment/cheick-tiote-dead-dies-died-newcastle-united-beijing-enterprises-heart-attack-cause-of-death-a7773986.html

  19. Apologies if already posted, but Jackie Sewell, part of AVFCs 1957 Cup winning side, passed away today. Even I'm not old enough to have seen him play, but I could quote that 57 side from a very young age. Legends each one. RIP Jackie

  21. Another one bites the dust. May he rip
  22. http://www.avfc.co.uk/page/NewsDetail/0,,10265~4575624,00.html He may have never kicked a ball for the club but Jack Watts was a household name at Aston Villa. Jack was one of the most popular figures in B6 because of his dedication to duty, his kind personality and his love of everything claret and blue. When it came to love of the club, there was only one man in the frame and that was Jack. He supported the club for over nine decades - and did almost every job imaginable in his time working with the claret and blues. Jack was first brought to Villa Park by his older brother Ted 92 years ago at the tender age of four and he has been a club stalwart ever since. He was most recently a matchday host for chairman Randy Lerner's guests - and his tales always kept visitors to Villa Park entertained. He was rewarded by a lifetime achievement accolade some years ago and he was still as passionate as ever about his favourite club even in his later years. One of Jack's many jobs during his tenure with the club was working in the Holte End scoreboard after he came out of the army in 1946, at the invitation of his old friend and neighbour Mush Callaghan. He was paid 10s for that and 15s for helping Mush and others sweep up the ground on Sunday mornings. For 34 years - until the installation of new electronic scoreboards in 1981 - working on one of the manual scoreboards was Jack's Saturday afternoon role. Working mostly with Mush's brother Arthur and Sam Messenger - and later with his two sons Peter and Steven - Jack would take down all the scores as they were read to him over the telephone by a woman from the Exchange Telegraph office in town. Jack loved the job - along with his many others - although he hilariously admitted he didn't show his face once during his long stint in the scoreboards. He dropped one of the heavy metal number plates on to the crowd below, where it struck a man in the face! He told us last year: "Can you imagine it? Oh dear, I'm thinking. What's going to happen here? If the fellow sues the club it's going to be for thousands of pounds, so that's the sack for me straight away! "But the biggest coincidence of all was that out of 64,000 in the ground, the fellow it hit happened to be a relation of Mush Callaghan's and one of my old football partners, a chap called Martin Moore. "Afterwards, I said 'Martin, I ain't half glad it was you!" Jack's favourite player was Billy Walker - and he once met the great man in unusual circumstances. He told us last year: "I remember it as vividly as if were yesterday, even though it happened more than 80 years ago. "I was playing football with my mates in Perry Barr Park and the ball sailed over my head and down the path. "Go and get it then," they told me, so off I scampered. "A man and a woman were strolling in the opposite direction, arm in arm, so I shouted: "Hey, mate, kick the ball here!" "He was wearing a suit but he duly obliged - and the classy manner in which he kicked that ball made me look again. "Could he possibly be a professional footballer? He was. The man who passed that ball to me was my idol, Billy Walker - Villa's all-time record scorer. "Well, I was awestruck. I simply didn't know what to say. "I was 11 or 12 at the time and meeting my hero was something I will never forget. "Tom "Pongo" Waring and Eric Houghton - the hardest kicker of a ball I've ever seen - were big stars in their own right. But if they were around today, I'm sure they would tell you they became even better players through playing alongside Billy Walker. "For me, there was no better footballer - and there never will be." Well, when it comes to club stalwarts, there will never be a better one than Jack. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Rest easy!

    Sad to hear the news that Steve Strange has died. I wasn't a great fan of Visage but they were an key band in the new romantic era.
