Graham Taylor the ex England, Watford and Aston Villa manager has died at the age of 72. A heart attack apparently. I quite liked him as a person. RIP.

Yeah I quite liked him myself. Always thought he came across well on the radio.

He was the opposing manager for two of my most memorable games as a blue.

It was disgraceful the way the S%* treated him when he was the England manager. I can't remember an England manager being given a harder time.

I quite liked him too. Was very good on the radio. I didn't think he was that great a manager though.

I could never forgive him for the game where Beagrie made his debut for us.

Took Watford from the 4th Division strugglers to runners up in the top flight and FA Cup runners up in about 6 seasons IIRC, so must have had something about him.

Good man by all accounts. Decent manager who took care of his players. The documentary was funny but unfair I think. Imagine trying to win owt with a team of English international shitheads like that.

Do I not like that!

RIP Graham Taylor.

It's weird how it's only now that I realise what an uncanny resemblance he had to Alan Partridge.
