    Sad story but powerful.
    I'd never heard of him, but listening to it now I know Wonderful Life.

    Yes, I know that. Still sad news when a parent dies, especially so young. Luckily both of mine are still here, the bad news is that I haven't been able to see them since November 2019. At least we now have video calls.

    That album - beautiful.
    I remember driving back home after holding my dad's hand when he died, hew was only 47.
    I had that tape on constantly in January 1988 just makes me cry when I play it through still even now, especially Sweetest Smile and Everything's Coming Up Roses. 
    It all has a sad but strong emotional resonance with me which will never leave me. I hope it never does. 
    I'm glad your experience with it is more positive.

    Don't know why, but Colin Vearncombe's (Black) death came as a great shock. I loved his first album, but never really heard much else. We had "Wonderful Life" played at our wedding.

    Are the positive posters here the same people as the positive posters on the Abu Dhabi thread? I suspect so.
    Did we heed the warnings from the Newcastle fan?
    This guy Erik, may be good, may be bad, may be somewhere in between but, you know, we've all read the same things and my gut instinct is that this guy is more mouth than trousers. Always trust your gut instinct.
    I fail also to understand why, if there's a 'Dream' owner waiting in the wings, Mel doesn't wait 3 or 4 weeks for it. No sense to it, he's waited this long so why is it all of a sudden a rush job?
    None of this adds up to me.  I take no pleasure in it.

    Before putting Brian Clough on a Tory vs Labour moral pedestal, his views towards Justin Fashanu sexuality and his flexible socialist  attitude when taking a bung make uncomfortable reading. I haven’t got a problem with Brian Clough whatsoever and still consider him a hero but in today’s cancel culture society it’s remarkable how we find a way to excuse the misdemeanours of those we love and weaponise what we can against those we dislike. Michael Jackson, David Bowie and John Peel seemingly get a free pass when it comes to being cancelled whilst poor old Leon Brittan’s family were utterly hounded with what turned out to be a smear campaign. 
    What I do think is fair is that these questions are raised with Alonso as it’s not unreasonable for fans to want to know about his views on such things. I can’t say I’m particularly thrilled if he has ‘Far’ right views but I find the views of the ‘Far’ left as equally deplorable and neo liberal cancel everybody and everything bunch the worst of the lot. This probably means the chances of us finding a perfect custodian of the club as I would like it pretty remote.

    Frankly as long as he isn’t either a criminal, a complete admitted misogynist / homophobe / anti semite bigot and doesn’t publicly incite violence or repression of dissent then his personal politics don’t interest me. Add in that maybe he is a VOX reformer ? Do we know ? Should we know ? If we know, is it really for us to pass judgment ?
    Thing is we don’t all think the same .. and why should we. ? And why if someone has a different view on tackling an issue are they somehow undesirable, unsuitable or not allowed to voice it ? It certainly shouldn’t reflect on his ability to broker a deal or run a football club. 
     
    I reckon today’s self appointed moralists are every bit as bad, hypocritical, self congratulatory and judgmental as the dyed in the wool old boys of times past. One “establishment” replaces another in near seamless fashion. It’s part of life.
