    Brutal. I'll never forget him scoring an overhead kick against us in the old firm. RIP.

    Remember his first goal for England. A well deserved call-up it was at the time too. Thinking it was 2001. Really shitty news.

    Well, I just shed tears at work. Didn't expect that.

    Ugo played a massive role in the defence in my favourite ever Villa team to watch (Bosnich/Charles/Wright/Southgate/McGrath/Ugo/Townsend/Taylor/Draper/Milosevic/Yorke). His shielding the ball out of play like the strongest fucker in the world in front of me at the Holte End was a weekly occurrence. Sounds like a random thing to remember, but it always stuck out in my head growing up.

    This is really fucking shite. I bloody loved Ugo and when he left to go to Boro I broke a little bit.

    I've always had a soft spot for Villa. First club team I saw play, against Inter Milan. Must have been the Uefa Cup. Villa couldn't get the one goal needed to take them through. Ugo stood out when he was there a few years after that. And of course, he was highly regarded at Spurs as a coach. Such shitty news to wake up to this morning.
