Former Arsenal centre-half Alf Fields has died aged 92.

 

He spent 16 years there as a player, out 47 in total, but played just 19 league games for the first team, owing to war, injury and Leslie Compton.

Charlie Adam doing a bit of deadpool scouting via his goal celebration today:

 

Former Burnley and Preston defender Gary Parkinson "in critical condition"

Despite only being able to move his eyes, Parkinson's now scouting for Middlesbrough. There's probably a Steve McClaren joke in there somewhere.

Ah ha, does that give me the (equal) DDP theme team lead, I wonder? (Subject to a suitable obit, but I don't think that'll be an issue) If so, that will make up for an abysmal main team performance.

 

TMIB, is it decided by hits or average age per death? At the risk of sounding slightly bitter, seems an easy and lazy way to win a competition by picking incredibly old people...

I think once the obit comes through, you should have a 1 point lead...

I'm not sure if he would meet the fame criteria, but former Ghana captain Emmanuel Quashie is suffering from throat cancer. It's nice to see the press dealing with his predicament in such a sensitive manner:

 

...The crippling grip of throat cancer is dangerously oozing health out of him with each passing day. :huh:

Another Manchester United casualty today as Darren Fletcher announces a prolonged break from football because of ulcerative colitis. Obviously, that infection breaking out in the team bath would be a pain in the arse for the whole squad (arf!). The condition is normally limiting of lifestyle, not life-length. But combined with a prolonged blast from Fergie's famed hairdryer...you never know.
