Premier League players no longer with us
« on: April 05, 2018, 08:53:39 PM »
A bit of a morbid one, but since hearing of Ray Wilkins passing away, there must be actually quite a few players who have played in the Premier League since it started in 1992, who are no longer with us. Can only think of a few off the top of my head, but surely there's a lot more:

Ray Wilkins
Liam Miller
Gary Speed
Dalian Atkinson
Les Sealey
Ugo Ehiogu
David Rocastle

Gary Ablett and Alan McDonald who probably both played in the early years of the premier league.
That was never a square ball!!

Tiote was no age. Forgot about him. And big Alan McDonald too. Heart attack on the golf course if I recall.

I thought not, but according to Wikipedia he played 13 games and scored 1 goal for Villa in the PL

He did indeed. 1992-93. Was fourth choice striker behind the above mentioned Atkinson, Dean Saunders, and a young Dwight Yorke.
