|Does exactly what it says on the tin - the forum for football-related discussion.
His last tweet:
Gave a homeless girl £10 last night in Dalston.She didn't ask or beg.Random impulsive act from me. Not gona lie. Felt good. #dosomethingkind
One of football's real gents - will be missed. Awful news.
By all accounts a genuinely lovely man.
And in this case I absolutely believe it.
Good player too. RIP Ugo.
Really nice gesture, although absolutely no need to tell the World about it, I hate it when people do that.
Awful news about his passing, 44 is no age to die
Perhaps his motivation was to encourage others rather than to be boastful?
Merson was in bits on Sky.
Another sad sad loss.
RIP big man. Sad Sad News.
Always liked him as a player.
Very sad news. RIP Ugo.
Funny how in football (especially back in the pre-social media days) you sometimes just have an instinctive liking for someone based on not very much other than how they handle themselves on the pitch.
Ehiogu was very much one of those players for me - always came across well and someone I really hoped we'd sign for a number of years. Was a very solid player and it seems by all accounts a very decent bloke too. Not even working for Spurs seems to have damaged his reputation!
Really sad news and thoughts are with his family - 44 is no age and a heart attack for someone who was presumably still training every day is such a shocking way to go. RIP big man.
Jeez, 44..always picked him for my fantasy football league team, a player I grew up with in a way.
By all accounts a top bloke.
Rest in peace Ugo
Really well described point....
Just that feeling of "I like him"......
No one is immune at any age. It's always a shock when such a young man in such apparent good health dies from organ failure. Very sad news. I wish is family, friends and family love and peace. RIP.
incredibly sad, RIP
Awful news, so young. Feel for his family. RIP.
Thinking back to the Villa team he played in, a lot of the players in that team "seemed " decent blokes. No doubt someone will correct me.
Puts life in prospective RIP Ehiogu
RIP. Makes you realise tomorrow is just a group of blokes kick a ball around.
No, people do it to paint themselves in a good light, they want everyone to know what they did. I do good deeds every week, I don't even tell my girlfriend about them most of the time, I certainly wouldn't even think to take to the Internet to tell the World, the gesture is for the person I'm helping, not for me, it feels nice to help someone but that's as far as it goes, people that see it can hopefully be inspired.
I don't want to dwell on that, or take anything away from Ehiogu, great player in his prime, always seemed like one of footballs good guys and this is awful, must be awful for those close to him and certainly shows that none of us are safe from this kind of thing, I'm sure he was still a very fit adult, scary.
One of those strange and sad ironies... the same day Ugo passes away (physically fit, only 44 years old etc), Iggy Pop hits 70 years old. Doesn't prove or disprove anything of course, but only highlights the lack of predictability about when and how it happens.
I remember when we sold Rio to Leeds, and the rumour went round (probably wishful thinking) that we were gonna spend most of the 18 million on getting Ugo and Southgate in... what a spine for our team of attacking talent we had back then that would have been!
He was a terrific defender, and by all accounts a top bloke too.
