Sorry to hear about Tom Bosley...I'm surprised no-one has mentioned Malcolm Allison...passed away last week.....Man City football manager with the fur coat, cigars and champers from the 70s.

I mentioned it over on the Man City thread but the main City fan here couldn't care less

RIP - Paul the octopus

http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2010/oct/26/paul-psychic-octopus-dies-football

Paul the 'psychic' octopus, who won unlikely worldwide fame after correctly predicting a host of World Cup matches, has died, his owners have confirmed. Stefan Porwoll, manager of the Oberhausen Sea Life Centre in Germany, said: "His success made him almost a bigger story than the World Cup itself."

Paul predicted the winners of all Germany's World Cup 2010 clashes, and then of the final by selecting one of two boxes, each loaded with a mussel food treat and marked on the outside with one of the teams.

Staff at the centre said his death was not entirely unexpected, since common octopuses generally only live a couple of years. "He appears to have passed away peacefully during the night, of natural causes, and we are consoled by the knowledge that he enjoyed a good life here," said Mr Porwoll.

"We may decide to give Paul his own small burial plot within our grounds and erect a modest permanent shrine." Paul will live on meanwhile in the form of a range of commercial enterprises ranging from special clothing lines to mobile phone applications. He will also feature in a documentary to be released early next year.

Next instalment in the lamest publicity stunt of the year - Paul The Octopus rises from the dead after prayer campaign by fans. "I could see a white light, then a voice said 'go back - you're the wrong Paul - we sent for McCartney' ".

World-wide media tour to follow. Contract signed for "I'm an Octopus - get me out of here". Autobiography in planning - "I know a sucker when I see one". (Price - what else? Six quid).

Hint - you can't tell one octopus from another. Further hint - they're nature's masters of disguise, ffs.

Does anyone know how we get our money back for tickets for one of Paul the Octopus's 50 O2 dates?
