THE ANFIELD NOISE

The R.I.P thread

Everytime someone well known passes a thread is started in order to allow us comment on that particular person.Those threads generally get a lot of views but rarely get a lot of replies.A single thread could possibly make more sense rather than continually setting up new ones.
As a mark of respect for almost 2 decades of memories,i think it’s only right that TIA forums is the first mention in this new RIP thread so,

RIP This Is Anfield forums,

What a great actress and truly different type of film/tv heroine. Diana Rigg, will be hugely missed, one of the last great British acting family of the swinging 1960s.

I will always remember her in the New Avengers.

She was fantastic in Game of Thrones. One of the castings the show absolutely nailed. RIP.

Fabulous actress. RIP.

I’m much older than you Maria; I can remember her as Mrs Emma “man appeal” Peel in the original Avengers. :thinking:

Sir Terence Conran, R.I.P.

I remember when shopping at Habitat and eating at his restaurants was all the rage; I must have spent thousands over the years at his places. :joy:

gale sayers was well before my time but i used to watch those NFL films highlights shows after school on rainy days

passed yesterday at 77

only played in 68 nfl games because of injuries but made the hall of fame anyway because he was one of the most dynamic, transcendent talents in the history of the sport. just breathtaking in the open field, a threat to go the distance on every touch

One of the best and most influential guitar players in history… I’m in that minority of people who never liked Van Halen as a band but loved Eddie and his guitar sound, he was ace. Such a loss, great people die every year but fuck this year in particular.
