Can you start thinking hard and concentrate on Grendel please? :emoji_laughing:
I know he can be a bit contrary sometimes, well, most of the time really, but does he really deserve an awful fate like that wished upon him!?

Brilliant as Arthur Seaton from one of my favourite films; "What I'm out for is a good time, all the rest is propaganda!"

I love watching Albert Finney's Scrooge every Christmas. It's been a tradition I've had for so many years, it wouldn't feel like Christmas without it. He completely nailed both sides of the character in a way few others ever could.

One of the greatest of all British actors.
He was superb in those kitchen-sink dramas from the 60's.
Saturday Night and Sunday Morning was a classic.
I remember watching 'Gumshoe', as a kid. Love that faux suspense/mild piss take.

I just saw this on MSN. Sad news, but reality kicks in when you see the ages of these guys. RIP Gordon.

I remember watching him in a game on tv once, he was unbeatable that night, saved a penalty and all sorts. A deserved legend of the game

I think Banks and Shilton were the two best goalkeepers we've ever had.

John Haynes of car manual fame. In the days when you could actually work on your car before computers and modules took over, we all had oily Haynes manuals and their exploded diagrams.
He died surrounded by his tools.

John Haynes OBE, the creator of the Haynes car repair manual has died and I've just read his obituary in the newspaper.
It was all very well, but I don't think it was totally necessary to print an exploded diagram of his internal organs on page 2.

If he'd have needed an autopsy you'd really hope the report was set out in an exploded diagram.

Same as last year when the IKEA bloke died - part of you really wanted a report set out in a "bone A inserts into socket B" and his coffin came flat packed.

Adolf Hitler. Well, okay, the bloke that played him in "Downfall". Bruno Ganz. Great film. Great actor.
