    FWIW, Emperor Quon from Sofia the First was named in Milton's honour. Not that it helps much with obit chances.

    FIFA World Cup Players

    Another unused player from 1982 was Roberto Bailey of Honduras. He was killed in a car accident a few weeks ago after returning from a funeral.

    Roldan WAS still alive until a couple of days ago. Giovaninni now becomes the oldest living from 1950. If Park-Jae Seung from 1954 is still alive (believe so) then he's the oldest living (born 1923)

    Won't get a UK obit. If Herd is struggling no chance she will.

    I'm working on this. There will be another OoO megalist later this year. I'm compiling the list at the moment and am doing it by alphabetical order by club. At the moment, I'm on Charlton so there's some way to go yet but I'm already on 150 names. Once the list is done I'll check the names and delete those gone and then we should have a complete list.

    Your Personal Survivors

    After Habgood and Mesrob, I'm down to 15. One of whom i now see regularly (Martin) and that reminds me to check on my survivors list.

    From Cleric To Relic

    10 years on and two of my former DDP picks Mesrob and John Habgood have gone within days of each other. Can't be msny in that survivor list now.

    Political Frailty

    Sorry to hear this, my former MP. For all that he seemingly was anti-gay, anti-women and anti-ethnic minorities, he did actually try really hard for his local constituency in between berating Nelson Mandela.

    Not at all. Id just love to have a definitive list for you but its so difficult to track some of these down. What I may do one of these days is go through a whole swathe of references but id need the quality time to do it. Its on my to-do list.
