    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Always a great stitch up when you go to a pub with karaoke and you put your mates name in and get him to sing I Touch Myself.

    Awww, Bob Brozman died. Beautiful musician. All the bro's who slap and pop their way to their girlfriend's knickers on a $100 acoustic guitar owe a gigantic debt.

    James Gandolfini passes away

    R.I.P Tony. In my opinion, his portrayal of Tony Soprano is one of the top 5 greatest performances in television history.

    Hadn't noticed, but Tom Sharpe died about a month ago. I guess he's not really a fashionable author any more, which is why his death doesn't seem to have created any ripples. Still, he wrote some pretty funny farces.

    Was very sad to hear of the passing of that young fellow from Glee, Corey Monteith. It wasn't a show I saw a lot of, though the twins occasionally watched it.

    Always a terrible waste when a young person succumbs, no matter the cause.

    RIP. I'm not ashamed to say I thought Glee was pretty good for the first series, and he seemed a good guy.

    This was posted in the Football thread, but I think he had Bert Trautmann interesting enough life to interest people out of the Football sphere.

    Oh and some oddly conflicting reports about Mel Smith having died, the comic. Loved Not The Nine O'Clock News, and I know Brumby is the fan of Colins Sandwich

    RIP if dead, if not what a bizarre hoax. Seems it's kosher, and the rumours of an hoax was the hoax, weird world we live in.

    Gutted.

    Massive fan of the big fella. Portrayed that kind of blundering Englishness so well.

    I saw him playing a copper in Rock & Chips (the Fools and Horse prequel) a year or two back and thought he didn't look a well man then.

    Vale Melvyn.

    Mel Smith had the finest hang dog expression the world has seen - there have been a few comics who can make me laugh without saying a word, but only Big Mel and Les Dawson ever did so without moving a muscle either

    RIP

    Gutted. Can't have been much of an age really. 60-odd?

    Great comedian.
