NEIL YOUNG SADLY DIES
Ex Manchester City striker, the subject of several recent posts, passed away today, after suffering with cancer. An integral part of the all conquering late 60s City side, Young was a modest, unassuming man, whom I had the pleasure of meeting twice @ Supporters functions.
As Mike Summerbee said recently "There was a Bell, Lee & Summerbee video, of which Neil Young was the star".
He will be sadly missed.
A brief BBC article can be found here : http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/9386667.stm
Pretty crap tribute in tonights Manchester (United) Evening News... 1st few lines mentioned that Neil had been a smoker & even showed a pic of him with a cigar in 1970, celebrating the birth of his child. Pretty tacky editing really & inappropraite in my book.
Some decent quotes & tributes from ex colleagues etc.
I've filed the paper away with some programmes, signed pics & books, though my initial reaction was to stick it in the recycling.
