    Football Manager Sacking Bingo 2

    No secret they've paid his contract off in full so £8 million might give him pause for thought about how badly he needs the next job - frankly, director of football somewhere whilst some other less fortunate soul gesticulates from the dugout might grab him now!

    Dunno where else to put this but the successful transplantation of a pig's kidney into a brain dead patient does suggest the usual ambulance chasing element of low-hanging dead pooling might be impacted. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-58993696 If this catches I'm assuming Nigel Farage's GB News audience might finally break six figures!

    Colour on his left hand...circulation could be better or - perhaps best guess - he's spent a lot of time outside in cold air

    Elton John

    Yeah but... Foul play was a regular part of pop singles sales back then, most labels - especially those focused on singles like RAK - knew where the chart return shops were and LOADS of singles were hyped in this manner. The Wiki page points out foul play was "suspected" it doesn't come down either way on whether the suspicions had a basis. There are a few cases in which singles were hyped and the labels themselves didn't realize they were sitting on winners capable of charting without help. Friend of a friend stuff so maybe nowt but I did hear a story that one bunch of pluggers were intercepted on their way to hype a single - David Cassidy's The Last Kiss - because it was flying out of shops legitimately and selling well ahead of expectations. Impressive sales or not nobody's suggesting the new release and its attendant radio play would have put it at #1 in that first week. Shakin' Stevens kept her off the top with This Ole House which sold well enough to the #5 single over the whole of 1981. Bangin' tune, mind!

    Political Frailty

    A few low hangers in there tbh, Harris (obviously) and Brookes had a heart attack in his mid 40's, smoking related. Dunno if he quit or not.

    Joe Biden

    We had a face off of sorts at the end of last year with discussions of whether Biden would outlive Trump. I still think he will. Trump's diet, lifestyle etc. are surely more of a stroke/heart attack in waiting than the more reticent and cautious Biden. If Trump puts himself forward and wins aged 78 - as did Biden - I'd say that's a presidency that won't go the distance.

    Death By Jazz

    I have a mate who constantly refers to jazz as "wank" music. So I'll tell him the three pillars of jizz-dom are all dead, then!
