Goody is one of my fifteen...

 

Cunt not dead is what I see of your gay spat.

 

So - to get back on track - does placing him in the fifteen mean you know exactly what his "frail health" is about? He survived jail with lengthy exercise sessions and much reading, so I'm assuming he has the kind of focus that keeps an octagenerian active.

No, it was more being elderly combined with solo points mixed with 3 of them dying last year. And Goody was meant to be iffy.

He made his "ultimate getaway" a year ago today.

I miss the guy too. I haven't been this sad about the death of a violent, unrehabilitable animal since Alex Higgins................ attended the funeral of Oliver Reed.

 

Surely some reflection is in order - anyone care to chip in on why he was such a great ambassador/DL candidate/man?

BBC showing the 80s movie "Buster" about Buster Edwards at 12:15AM tonight. Given it has Phil Collins in it and this is the poster, guessin' it's not much of a stretch to say it's a bit crap?

Also, a bit baffled by the relative lack of tributes for Ronnie after his anniversary. :scratchhead:

Mediocre and historically innacurate rather than full-on crap IMHO. Makes Buster out to be a chirpy type when his proneness to depression etc. eventually contributed to his suicide.

Julie Walters is excellent in it but she usually is even in crap films. I have an affection for this film as I remember going to the cinema to see it with my then girlfriend (now wife) and we danced in the isles to 'Two Hearts' before curtain up as there was no-one else in the cinema.

According to this article, there are "believed" to be only 3 great train robbers now left - Wisbey, Welch and Goody.

 

Question is then, what the bloody hell happened to the few that are unaccounted for? i.e. Daly, Jennings, White, Cordrey, Leonard Field and Wheater

 

Can only find death details for 8 thus far - Boal, Brian Field, Wilson, Edwards, James, Hussey, Reynolds and Biggs

Tommy Wisbey has now croaked it.
