    Albert Quixall. Another, like Tony Waiters, who is a memory from when I first started being interested in football in the late 1950s.

    Sizeable transfer fee if I recall. Maybe even a record at the time ?

    £45,000. British transfer record at the time. Bought in 1958 as Busby rebuilt after Munich.

    I've moved comments about Sutcliffe to a thread of their own, rather than risk disrespect to the others named.

    Please post any comments here: https://www.not606.com/threads/sutcliffe.387973/

    John Hays, the pioneering founder of the UK’s largest independent travel agency, Hays Travel, has died after collapsing at the Sunderland headquarters of the company he created 40 years ago.

    Wow. Shocking.

    They're a massive part of the travel industry up here and very well respected.


    RIP.

    Should that man even have a mention on this thread? I think not.

    I believe so, in case people thought it had been missed off.

    RIP Des

    Not sure whether it’s right but rumour had it he first met Morecambe and Wise in Hull

    Appeared on the Buddy Holly tour and first Beatles tour. Had a no 1 hit single, recorded 36 albums.
    Appeared at the Palladium over 1,000 times. Not many will have careers like that.
    Who can forget, if they are old enough, the DJ at Liverpool putting his hit Careless Hands on as the teams left the pitch at Anfield after Sprake had thrown the ball into his own net? Purely coincidental it was claimed.<laugh>

    I saw him in cabaret at the Wakefield theatre club. Wasn’t sure what to expect but it was money well spent. An utterly brilliant performer who had the audience mesmerised throughout. RIP Des.

    i adored morecambe & wise - they were essential for xmas, and eric was always like your daft uncle, but des's music was a ton better than eric's novel.

    WHEN Des O’Connor heard that Eric Morecambe had suffered a heart attack in the late Seventies he stopped the show he was appearing in and asked the entire audience to pray for him.
    The recovering Eric later heard about the gesture and offered his thanks. “It was the prayers of those six or seven people that made all the difference,’’ he quipped.

    When someone asked Eric Morecambe if he had a criminal record he always referred to Des.
    Des did Countdown for a short stint, taking over from the other Des. He was good.
    RIP Des
