Very Sad. Too young and he was, by all accounts, fit and healthy.

RIP

I'm a Villa fan - awfully sad. Dalian Atkinson too recently.

Those mid/late 90s Villa teams had a lot of legends in it

soccer players are never healthy, rugby players are forced to eat certain foods and exercise all the time, soccer players don't get similar treatments..ever wonder why rugby players generally live past 85?

Very well thought of in the Spurs youth setup after coaching the under 21s and then the under23s. Terribly sad to see someone die so young

Eh..... no.

Do you think there is some sort of "conspiracy" that no former professional footballer lives beyond 60 or something?

Think again. Very few of them are like that and certainly no more then rugby players in terms of booze.

Lavish lifestyles maybe - but Ugo Ehiogu wasn't on £300k per week or I imagine eating caviar morning noon and night.

You are aware that these lads are given their meals/food in the club- professional prepared etc

Re the booze I doubt they drink more than your average joe really........

Nonsense.

Blimey another one.

What is about footballers and undiagnosed heart problems?

Found this from an expert:

Quote:
What should we be looking for? First, it helps to know the difference between a heart attack and cardiac arrest.

“A heart attack is a plumbing problem,” says Dr. Chris Simpson, chief of cardiology at Queen’s University. An artery leading to the heart becomes blocked, usually from cholesterol build-up, and the part of the heart muscle that is fed by that artery becomes damaged.

“Cardiac arrest is an electrical problem,” Dr. Simpson says. “The natural rhythm of the heart that generates every heart beat that you have suddenly either just completely stops and becomes electrically silent, or it becomes so fast and erratic that your heart muscle essentially can’t keep up with all the electrical signals and so it just quivers – literally quivers – and it can’t generate any pumping output.”

Sudden cardiac arrest is usually due to a handful of genetically inherited heart rhythm disorders: Long QT Syndrome, Brugada Syndrome, Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia (CPVT), Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (ARVC) and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

These conditions can be difficult to diagnose, Dr. Simpson says, “but one of the things we’ve found recently is that if you take the whole universe of people who just dropped dead at age 23, it turns out that over half of them, in retrospect, had some warning signs.”

There are, in fact, three key warning signs. One is having dizzy spells or passing out during exercise. That can be a sign that a your heart’s rhythm was out of whack long enough to make you collapse but went back to normal quickly enough to let you wake up, Dr. Simpson says.

Fainting as a result of a loud noise or being startled is a second red flag. “The reasons for it aren’t entirely clear, but it’s a well-described phenomenon in Long QT Syndrome,” Dr. Simpson says.

Third is a family history of sudden death at a young age or of drowning. Many cardiac conditions can make you pass out during exercise, which may not be fatal in a marathon, when you can stand back up after you recover. “But if you pass out in the water, you drown,” Dr. Simpson says.

Even if none of these red flags are raised in your case, there still may be reasons to see a physician. If you have a family history of heart disease, fainting, chest pain or cardiac irregularities, you should book a trip to the doctor’s office. That trip could result in having your blood pressure checked or having an electrocardiogram done, which can pick up some electrical problems with the heart. More specialized tests include an echocardiogram, a heart ultrasound, which can identify whether or not a person has hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and can also often pick up ARVC, says Harry Rakowski, a senior staff cardiologist at the University Health Network in Toronto.

McGrath is hardly from the same era as those guys. He was born in the 50's and they were born in the 70's. Plus they are black and he isn't.

McGrath was born in 59, Atkinson and Daley were born in 67 and 68. And there's the small matter that they all played for the same Villa teams in the early 90s.

20 years ago I used to frequently step over some Liverpool and Everton players at the local Night Clubs after they had spent a night on the booze and coke and whizz.
I suspect things are different now.
