RIP Fernando Ricksen

Recommended Posts

Very sad.

I had a friend who died from motor neurone disease in his mid-40s. I wouldn't wish that disease on my worst enemy.

Absolutely tragic. The battles he'd have with Alan Thompson in the early 2000s were sensational to watch

Rest easy sir.

Watching the documentary now on BBC Scotland. Its fucking horrific to watch.

Just came to post this, yeah. Eye-opening.

I had to turn it off to be honest, found it too gut wrenching.

That penalty in his final game and seeing him in tears on his teammates shoulders had me welling up...

I watched the documentary the other night. What heartbreaking viewing. I’m not ashamed to admit I had a tear in my eye when it showed you him crying in hospital, and when he fell over after kicking the charity game off. What a cruel disease

Maradonna has also went down massively in my estimation
