New photo of Big Ron Atkinson if anyone is interested. Doesn't look too bad for someone about to turn 84.

Zdeněk Zeman, who turns 76 in May, is back managing Pescara for the third time in Italy's third tier. No obvious health issues at the moment, but as a chain smoker with a clear work addiction, this is someone who is clearly going to Jock Stein on the touchline within the next five years.

Spanish second-tier side Real Oviedo have announced the death of their former player Pelayo Novo at the age of 32 in a probable suicide.
 



His playing career was ended prematurely when he fell from a hotel balcony at the age of 28.

Although Oviedo's statement doesn't hint at cause of death, a tweet from a newspaper indicates his body was discovered on train tracks .

Allan McGraw who was Greenock Morton through and through and absolute legend as player and manager has passed aged 83

 

Really gutted at this as Morton are my team and Quick Draw McGraw was my first hero scoring 57 goals in record breaking season 1963/64 when Morton ran away with the old Second Division and reached the League Cup final RIP Allan

You missed out his best club:P

 

Ex-Reading as well and I remember him well as a classy winger, decent crosser of the ball.

 

Worryingly, the statement didn't include a quote from Bowen directly, just his family which makes me fear he's more likely to be a quicker death than some of the 5/6 years on average for others.

 

Really sad, but these MND cases are only likely to increase.

 

Lengthy interview. Based on this, you'd be looking at DDP 2028, I'd say.

Infamously dubbed 'Mr Blobby' by angry Meadowbank Thistle fans when he launched his plan to give them a new name and new stadium. He did have the last laugh though as the new team Livingston are currently doing pretty well in the Scottish Premiership.

Fans mysteriously don't tend to be happy about plans to move their club 26 miles and change the name.

 

Though, Meadowbank Stadium is now used by Edinburgh FC, flying high in the Scottish League One, so Livi may return there in the near future!

I could have sworn notorious Norwich City chairman Robert Chase died in the late 90s, but apparently he didn't and according to Company House is still alive aged 84. Cannot find any photos or interviews of him taken in the past two decades though.

He's only 84. Fucking hell
