The great Alan McLoughlin, the man whose goal in a sinister, toxic, hate riddled stadium in Belfast against Norn Iron sent the Republic of Ireland through to the 1994 World Cup, has died. Billy Bingham (Norn Iron manager who egged on the Norn Iron fans) was devastated.

I remember putting one on a chair at work somewhere, saying "My Seat", I went back 4 years later and it was still there, and no-one else sat on it
