    Jimmy Elder (March 5th 1928) who played a single game for Portsmouth in November 1949 before a successful five year stint at Colchester confirmed still living at 91 by the Pompey History Society through detective work. Not even on the lists in the opening post. https://www.portsmouthfc.co.uk/news/2019/october/last-surviving-member-of-championship-team-re-discovered/

    Alagiah vs Turnbull

    Think Turnbull will go last.

    Nobby Stiles again.

    Bill Turnbull

    So he was reincarnated and is terminally ill again?

    The 11th Death of 2019

    Not really the 11th death of 2019 then.

    38. Cleo Laine

    Thoughts and opinions on the death list 2019

    My current verdicts as we enter the final quarter of the year and with Ginger gone. Kirk Douglas - Think he'll see his 103rd and 2020 now. Olivia De Haviland - Should be fine for the 2020 starting line. Duke of Edinburgh - Slowly deteriorating but should last a bit yet. Leah Bracknell - Continues to defy the odds, could see 2021 let alone 2020. Vera Lynn - Accelerating health, don't think she'll survive the winter. Jimmy Carter - Not going anywhere soon but too old to be dropped now. Pierre Cardin - Quiet of late but his age makes him too risky to be dropped. Bob Dole - Looks like he will get a really high position in the 2020 list if he makes it. Henry Kissinger - Still making public appearances despite being unable to walk. Jerry Stiller - Quiet of late but could be worth dropping next year. Javier Perez De Cueller - Could go any time. Bob Barker - Somehow managing to cling on. Murray Walker - Still writing columns but too old to be dropped now. Emperor Akihito - Nothing new about his health, could be a risky drop for next year. Betty White - Could last a bit yet but too big to miss of course. Hosni Mubarak - Quiet of late but still young enough to take a DL sabbatical. June Brown - Still acting, worth dropping for 2020. Stirling Moss - Could go any time. Alan Greenspan - Wasted pick Dick Van Dyke - One of the most stupid picks ever, not going anywhere, must be dropped for 2020. Nobby Stiles - Somehow still clinging on, must be at least top 10 for the 2020 list if he makes it. Barbara Walters - Worth bringing her back for the 2020 list. Honor Blackman - Not been seen in public for a few years now, think she's a lock until she goes. Harry Belafonte - Quiet of late but should stay on the list every year now. Desmond Tutu - Looked really well recently with Prince Harry and his entourage, a worthy drop next year. Valery Giscard d'Estaing - Now outlived two of his successors, stood unaided at Chirac's funeral recently, I'd drop him for 2020. Ed Asner - Wasted pick. Vanessa Redgrave - Too early Jimmy Greaves - Needs a lot of care now, think he's a goner for 2020. Sidney Poitier - Worth keeping for next year. Cleo Laine - Still performing regularly but an interesting pick. I'd bring her back for 2021. Loretta Lynn - Looked reasonably well at a recent awards ceremony. I'd drop her for 2020. Michael Gorbechav - In and out of hospital lately, could well be a 2020 goner. Tony Britton - Quiet of late but too old to be dropped. Clive James - Should see out the year but must be at least top 15 for the 2020 list. Prunella Scales - Should last a bit yet. Little Richard - Either this year or early next year. Larry King - Could well be a 2020 goner. Tina Turner - Wasted pick. Shane McGowan - Had to be on the DL sometime but I'd bring him back for 2021.
