    He was nearly at the boundary rope when he started that run up. A batsman had a long time to prepare for what was coming. And back then the batsmen wore very little protection.

    And their office clothes, by the looks of it!
    Socks before or after trousers, but never before pants. That's the rule.

    Best selling British author Jackie Colin's has died of breast cancer. While her books were not really my cup of tea, millions of people bought and read her books.

    RIP Jackie Collins

    RIP Dennis Healey. A massive figure in Labour politics. A true leviathan of the labour movement.

    RIP, who knows what might have happened if he hadn't lost out to Micheal Foot in the early eighties, a fine man and a cracking pair of eyebrows.

    A real heavyweight of the Labour movement at that time - why they chose Foot over him only they will know

    Because, like now, the Labour Party were going through one of their Wolfie Smith, clenched fist 'right on brother' periods.

    R.I.P. Dennis Healy. A true giant of politics in the 60's and 70's. I may not have always agreed with what he said, but I always respected him. He should have been leader of the Labour Party.

    Former Chancellor Geoffrey Howe has passed away. Generally regarded as quiet man in politics, his resignation speech probably played a major part in the demise of Margaret Zthatcher as Prime Minister.

    A quiet and honourable political man. I imagine he is having a decent chat with Denis Healey upstairs.

    No doubt Dennis will think it'll be 'like being savaged by a dead sheep", although fair play to the dead sheep, he well and truly fucked the old hag up the arse in the end.

    That was a classic comment. He did more damage to Mrs Thatcher in those few words than all her opponents put together.

    Former Everton manager Howard Kendall has passed away aged 69
    Wolves have ambition and wit... why is it such a crime?

    Terribly sad news. Howard Kendall was a great player and along with Colin Harvey and Alan Ball he was part of the Everton holy trinity. Everton have had some great players over the years, but not too many of them were as good as Howard Kendall.

    R.I.P.

    I used to go to the blues (forgive me) just to watch Kendall, he was a supreme talent and for him not to get an England cap is a disgrace to this day.

    I am not sure that I have ever seen a finer midfield than Kendall, Ball and Harvey. And Kendall was indeed very unfortunate not to gain international recognition.

    I'm too young to remember his good Everton team, but he always came across as a good man who knew his football. His Sheffield United team of 96/97 was a really good one for this level, played some decent stuff too unlike the drivel that Bassett/Warnock produced either side of him.

    That Everton team was very good. Sheedy Sharpe Steven Heath Van den Hauwe and Southall were really good players.
