Another shocker, be interesting to hear how he died considering he was so young.
As a Kid I always found Doddy a bit scary and weird, It was only years later I realised how talented he was.
They mentioned it on bbc breakfast this morning. Really appeals to my sense of humour.
He was only trying to emulate Adam Johnson by spraying his bodily fluid across a schoolgirl's face
Clever man. His karaoke was very underrated.
Yeah the worst thing about it....well not the worst thing but to add insult to injury, after all the great games he played (especially for England) the thing that jumps out from the news report is "first player to be sent off playing for England". He deserves better than that. Makes him sound like a bit of a Roy Keane nut-job whereas I can't even remember the bloke making a bad tackle to be honest.
And they tell us we're living longer.
Wow, true legend of his sport.
Can't say I'm surprised though by the type of lifestyle these guys led.
Aye, wasn't it for kicking the ball away in the Mexico WC.
I remember him more for passing sideways hence his nickname 'The Crab', can't say I ever thought of him as a truely great footballer like they are making out but he did carry on in the game after he retired and gave a lot back to the sport, which I respect him for the most.
No, he threw the ball at the ref. Well, supposedly, but he was about 10 yards away, hardly touched him really, bit petulant but wasn't really worth a red card. One of my earliest football memories, that, and the 86 World Cup in general. Anything he did before that in his career was a bit before my time.
Highly thought of at Milan though, by all accounts, and there aren't many English players who've had a successful spell at a European club.
