Not gonna pretend I had any great love for the man. I stood/sat on the Holte End on more than one occasion calling for his head, but I have great respect for what he achieved in his life.

RIP Sir Doug.

Meh. Only the good die young. 

He would have won Wimbledon too, if he wasn't busy inventing package holidays.
