    British football at its purest, that passage of play.

    Terrible news to wake up to.

    He grew up on the next street to me in Hackney, and I knew him and his family well. His brother was a good friend of my brother growing up.

    Too many people being lost these days. So random this one too. Thoughts with his family.

    Legendary player for my generation. A typical buy in computer games when choosing an average team and wanted to play the game as realistic as possible.

    :( RIP. 44 is so young by modern day context. I remember he was one of our rumoured transfer targets in the late 90s along with us signing Yorke.

    He could have gone down as one of the England greats if not for all of the injuries. RIP big man.

    Feck. I always liked him; he was wasted at Villa. 44? Jesus.

    Shocking and incredibly sad news. He was a very good player and seemed a thoroughly decent man.

    Saw him in a pub garden one Saturday afternoon the summer before last. My brother in law is a huge Villa fan so he went up and spoke to him. He was a really lovely guy; chatted with my brother in law for a while about Villa's woes and even ended up on the phone to my brother in law's best mate discussing Villa's current defence.

    He looked in great shape as well; really shocking that he could just drop dead like that.

    Incredibly sad.

    Absolute tragedy; football is a family no matter what club or nation you are from, we are all together.

    RIP Ugo,

    He was a footballer during the peak times of my football support. He was also really underrated, fantastic player.

    Gutted.

    Just heard about this earlier, and it's terrible, and reminds you how fragile life is. Didn't know him personally, obviously, but from all the messages and praise coming out it seems like he was a great guy, and he was one of the staples of 90s Premier League football in a proper Aston Villa team!

    I remember that Villa team from the treble season. They were top at Christmast and United can only draw against them at Old Trafford.
