    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    Roger Hunt, age 83.

    Scored the first ever goal in Match of the Day, and I think it used to start the intro at one stage too.

    Colin Powell worth a mention though possibly not to the younger among you. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colin_Powell

    I remember him lying through his teeth to the UN to try to justify the invasion of Iraq. What I didn't know is he had a role in whitewashing the My Lai massacre too. May he rot in hell.
    It's funny how you can't spread carcinogens in an office by smoking, but you can cough and cough and cough.

    The worst thing about Colin Powell is that he was the best of a bad lot.

    Jesus yes. When your cabinet buddies include Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld it's easy to look positively angelic in comparison.

    Walter Smith was a Scottish football great and too modest to shout about it

    Announced today. I thought he was older than 73.
    Hello, hello? What's going on? What's all this shouting, we'll have no trouble here!

    Celtic fans might be in a position to correct me, but the impression I got was that he never really got invested in the ugly side of the Old Firm rivalry, just got on with his job as a manager.

    For all the obsession with money and property he ended up with what everyone else does - 6x3, and maybe sooner than he should have. Though it's a pity he did't get there via a spell in a 6x8 with bars on the window...
