Just to say Sky News broke it before Sky Sports News by about 30 seconds

Anyway we should be celebrating his genius at being a footballer than those who wnt to criticize his behaviour with drink.

I would like to send my condolences to his family

I hope they do a proper tribute program instead of leaving it at the rerun of an old program they used last night.If Sky can put together a special show for the scousers winning the Champs Lge then they should be able to push the boat out for the greatest player to ever play in this country and one of the best ever
