    Manchester United player dies

    Yep Manchester United player Jimmy Davis - who was a 21 year old striker and has been killed in a car accident. He ha da lot of potential so for Man Utd fans he is a real loss.

    Thoughts go to his family
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi, a true legend of CW

    Was he supposed to be involved in the Watford game yesterday? If so how come he was on the road at 2am?

    My thoughts too, Bazza - simple answer is that he wasn't due to play.

    good on 'em. i'm a great supporter of this 'black armband' stuff, really sends a message to the players families.

    It was also in memory of Ray Harford, who was assistant manager to Kenny Dalglish when Blackburn won the title in 1995, and he went on to manage them himslef, having previously managed Wimbledon, Luton (who won the league cup in 1988) and I think QPR? Maybe others.

    Harford was 58 when he lost his battle against cancer.
