Here's a video news report, looking back at his life and brilliant career:
07-30-2009 12:45 PMSlashtasticAnother top site, and it's free! Thanks again, and I'll definitely be checking it out.
Yeah, I think Blackburn have a good chance of getting one of the UEFA Europa League places this season. You know, because I'm so used to seeing Man U, Chelsea, and Arsenal winning the Premier League, I kind of forget sometimes that Blackburn were actually champions of the 94/95 season.

This is a free site that provides streamed videos that my friend also uses.
I think I'm going to support Blackburn this year, only because the Pub nears me shows about 1/4 of the games of Portsmouth and 3/4 of the games of Blackburn. But I still will support Portsmouth.
07-30-2009 07:10 AMSlashtasticThanks for the link mate, I've bookmarked it. I usually go to see Premier League football in a bar or restaurant, as I only have local cable due to these harsh economic times. The digital service out here in Thailand is UBC, and the viewers are spoiled for choice when it comes to live PL games.
But they only show a little bit of Championship fixtures, and thatís a bit a fucker considering my team, Crystal Palace, is in that league. Sometimes on local cable they show matches from that league, but again it isn't much. I can watch a lot of Champions League & UEFA Cup (all the English clubs), FA Cup, and League Cup on local cable though.
But with this link I'll have no problem watching Palace now. That's well cheap for about $15 a year, for 300 live matches per month! Again, thanks.
07-29-2009 09:24 PMNewWorldOrderYeah I like Aston Villa. The only team I don't hate out of the top 4 are Liverpool. How do you watch your team's games? I just cancelled my tv and cable, so I have no idea how to watch games now, and I'm trying to find sites. My friend uses this site, it's like 15 a year, which isnt bad, but I don't know if it works for Macs, which I have. http://www.free-football.tv/
07-29-2009 02:31 PMSlashtasticI agree with you that it's frustrating to see the same four challenging for the title, getting all the Champions League places, every season! It's like beneath the top four, it's a league of it's own; the remaining 16 clubs all challenging for places in the now titled UEFA Europa League, and trying to escape relegation. Last season I thought maybe Aston Villa would break into the top four, but they just lost it during the second half the footballing year. But Martin O'Neill is a great manager, who I have a lot of respect for. Villa will be a force to be reckoned with, if O'Neill is given the time.
07-29-2009 02:03 PMNewWorldOrderI think I like Bundesliga the most now, only because half the teams are within a few points from each other, and it's an intense season... plus the lower seed teams come up with major upsets all the time. Barclays, the damn 4 teams all the time, and it gets old. Right now, I'm trying to find a team to follow for this year in England, I might have to support Blackburn... I'm not too sure.
07-29-2009 01:50 PMSlashtasticI've got to be honest, I only really follow English football. But I do appreciate the quality of the game in Spain; La Liga is probably the second best league in the world after the Premier League.
07-29-2009 07:17 AMNewWorldOrderI'm a keeper I've played that position for about 7 years now, ever since I grew 5 inches out of no where, though I'm only 6'0, but I'm lengthy. David James is my 2nd favorite keeper... Iker Casillas being my first. He's the only reason I'll watch Real Madrid games, but I don't support them at all.
07-29-2009 03:17 AMSlashtasticIn Thailand, Thais are either Man U or Liverpool.
Good for you. You went against the grain to follow a lesser known Premier league club. Also you have a few like minded mates, who are Spurs followers as well. You all get to share the experiences of your team's highs and lows, which is partly what the beautiful game is all about.
Portsmouth are a good team. I always route for the underdogs, and London clubs also, in the Premier League. David James has flashes of brilliance, but he is equally frustrating, as he makes some terrible decisions. That's why he's nicknamed Calamity James! But when he is good, he is really good. He has pulled off some great saves in the past, and his recent form for Portsmouth has been brilliant! But I think it's fair to say England have not had a truly great goal keeper since David Seaman.
What position to you play? I'm a terrible footballer; it's like I've got two left feet! I'm firmly a spectator, but I do like a kick a about.
