Title: Former Brazil captain Socrates
Post by: tilerman on Dec 04, 2011, 12:33
passed away this weekend at the mere age of 57. Everybody used to like watching the magic of Brazil in the 70s/80s (non football fan excluded!)

No age is it. What is it with footballers dying young. Not just this last two weeks but in general.  Wonder if there is anything in the heading a ball being the same as being punched

isn't that what they put Jeff Astles death (about ten yrs ago) down to  but that was with the 'old' type football.
