Going forward please use this thread for significant deaths of the football world if you don’t want to start a thread on it.

The Still Not Worthy Thread is not an appropriate place for this.




RIP Gerard Houllier, your Liverpool time was a team I enjoyed watching growing up.
I looked into the eye of the Island and what I saw was beautiful.

Good idea, the other thread always felt awkward.

RIP Gerard, I always thought he would end up here a few years ago :(

Lovely man, excellent manager, I wanted him to be our boss recently, think he would've done a great job. Rest in peace Gerard :(

Now it's a good idea, but when I did it :huff:

Wanted him here on the several occasions he was linked. Underrated manager, pure pro and a gent. Rest soundly.
Chris Hughton, simply the best manager we had from 2009-2010.

Always liked Houllier, tbh. I even enjoyed Liverpool's exploits under him a little bit. Titi Camara! :pow:

Worked wonders with Dundee United. Managed to win the league. Almost impossible for anyone but the old firm to win it these days...unfortunately. He gave them some great nights in Europe too. I seen his side lose the Scottish cup final to St Mirren in 87 and they were in the UEFA cup final days later. They'd beaten Barcelona along the way I'm sure.
RIP.

RIP. Belarusian excellence. Shame he didn't live long enough to see the revolution on the horizon.

dundee utd's jim mclean RIP.

To us of a certain age, this guy did great things and almost achieved the impossible.
loved watching their euro adventures - that night at the nou camp!!!!

and also just 90 minutes and a £50k bribe away from a european cup final.

"John Carver has talked of playing two up top in an effort to score goals, tactically be more direct to grind out points, and just about every other possibility known to man or beast. They are the ramblings of a drowning desperado."

Tommy Docherty - started the process of modernisation with us that took us from Division Three to European cup in 13 years.

We're playing Man United tomorrow, quite appropriate.

Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too

Great players in his day, hopefully City will dedicate one of the ends to him at the Etihad.

Sad day. I thought he was an awesome player and lucky to have seen him a few times. He just was so ahead of his time.
RIP Colin.
