Whenever a famous footballer dies, there is an inevitable degree of public grief. But an obituary should never be a leaden announcement of a death. Rather it should be a celebration of a life which, in some way, has touched countless other people down the years, inspiring heartfelt emotion and endless debate. Certainly that is true of the individuals featured here, from those who provoked something not far short of national mourning, such household names as Sir Stanley Matthews, George Best, Alan Ball, Brian Clough, Sir Bobby Robson and Malcolm Allison, through to those who died far too young, the likes of David Rocastle, Justin Fashanu, Gary Ablett and Gary Speed.
