Just spent the afternoon driving the coast road between Bridport and Weymouth when I Feel Free came on the radio, the perfect song for driving a road like that. What a band Cream were.

RIP Ginger Baker

Former Aston Villa manager Ron Saunders has died at the age of 87, the club has announced.

Saunders guided Villa to the top flight in 1974 with promotion in his first season in charge.

He also won two League Cups during his eight years at Villa Park.

"Ron Saunders died at 15:00 GMT on Saturday and his family have asked for their privacy to be respected at such a difficult time," a club statement said.

Saunders ended his managerial career at West Bromwich Albion, retiring in 1987.

Villa players will wear black armbands and hold a period of applause when they host Leicester City in the Premier League on Sunday.

 

 

RIP
