    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.

    Tom Docherty b. 1924. Ex Norwich, Newport and Reading. Believed alive was definitely alive c. 2014. Definitely alive and born pre-1930 is Eddie McLaren who was born in 1929. Reading FCs confirmed oldest if the aforementioned Churchill and Docherty are gone. I see the recently deceased Johnny Walker wasnt on Ulitzer95 list , not that it matters now.

    Stan Clements died November 2018. Add to the possibility of still living: Trevor Churchill : Reading and Swindon b. 1923.

    Shame on you all for not going for Mulamba. I always had faith in you Ndaye. *ignores fact that i never picked him on DDP in the 5 years I competed since...

    Johnny Walker - how's he doing?

    Meanwhile the Johnny Walker that means the most to me, died earlier this week aged 90. Captain of Reading football club for ages.

    Jean-Louis Trintignant

    I know him chiefly as nephew to Maurice ahead of his film career but that's just me.

    Waiting for a valid obit for that footballer who passed away this year? Wait no longer. Not sure how many are on list of the lost but loads of sports people here https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/sports-personality/46554724 Nigel Sims is on there.
