Bobby was an absolute legend.


RIP.



Can't believe he's dead so quickly after the match last Sunday.

From BBC

The male half of singing duo Renée and Renato, who had a UK number one hit in 1982 with Save Your Love, has died.

Former Italian waiter Renato Pagliari, 69, who lived in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, died in hospital last week after surgery for a brain tumour.

The Rome-born crooner also provided the voice behind the Walls ice-cream TV advert Just One Cornetto.

Renato is survived by his wife Maureen, son Remo, daughter Amanda, and three grandsons.

Villa fan

The singer entered the TV talent show New Faces in 1975 and caught the attention of songwriter Johnny Edward, who had written Save Your Love.

The song was eventually recorded in 1982 and became that year's Christmas number one single.

By the time it topped the charts, Renée had already joined another band.

The duo did attempt follow-up hits - Just One More Kiss and Jesus Loves Us All - but they flopped.

Renée later returned to private life but Renato still occasionally sang at his son's restaurant in Tamworth, Staffordshire, called Renato's.

Renato supported Aston Villa Football Club and during the early 1990s was asked by the then manager Ron Atkinson to sing Nessun Dorma at half time during a match.

La Liga - Espanyol captain Jarque dies

Espanyol captain Dani Jarque died from a heart attack while on a pre-season tour of Italy.

The 26-year-old defender died at the hotel where the team were staying in the town of Coviciana.

He was discovered in his room after team-mates realised he had not appeared for a meal.

The club said that team doctors as well as Italian paramedics tried to revive the player but without success.

The tragedy comes just two years after the death, also from heart failure, of Sevilla defender Antonio Puerta, who died aged 22 after having collapsed during the opening game of the Spanish La Liga season.

Espanyol confirmed the diagnosis of heart failure and said the club doctor's attempts to revive the player had failed.

"It was a heart attack," said club official German de la Cruz.

"He was talking to his girlfriend when he suddenly began to feel unwell. He told her and then stopped talking.

"His partner got in touch with the hotel and explained what had happened but it was too late to do anything."

Jarque had played for Espanyol since the 2002-2003 season.

In the last campaign, he featured in 36 league matches and scored two goals. He was also a member of the team which won the Spanish Cup in 2006 and who were UEFA Cup runners-up in 2007.

European champions Barcelona, who are Espanyol's city rivals, sent their condolences to the Jarque's family from their American tour base in San Francisco.

"We are filled with extreme sadness at this tragic event and tonight we are in mourning," said Barca president Joan Laporta.

"On behalf of Barcelona, we want to send our deepest sympathies to Espanyol for the painful loss of their captain Dani Jarque, and to his family."

A minute's silence was observed at the start of the second half of a pre-season friendly at the Mestella Stadium where Valencia were taking on English side Arsenal.

Players from both sides also wore black armbands.

Real Madrid as well as the Spanish football federation sent their condolences to Jarque's family.

The young fella that fell and hit his head when he was blocked in Crete was Aston Villa player Luke Youngs brother.

Stuart Mangan, the 26 year old from Fermoy in Co. Cork, who suffered a severe spinal injury while playing rugby in London in April 2008, has sadly passed away.

He was taken to St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London on Thursday as a result of respiratory problems and passed away peacefully on Friday 7th August in the presence of his parents Brian and Una and his three brothers Keith, John and Barry.

I'm sure a lot of lads had heard about this guy  sadly passed away
