I’m sure most of you are aware that one of our ‘Legends’ passed away today. http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/updates-ex-villa-star-dalian-11749832
At the time of writing we do not know the full details of what happened other that he was allegedly tasered by the police in a domestic incident and died soon after.
Whatever the circumstances we have lost a ‘member of the Villa family’ and I’m sure everyone on this site will want his family and friends to know we are thinking of them in their darkest hour.
Atkinson was part of a great attacking team for us in the 90s managed by his namesake Ron Atkinson. His partnership with Dean Saunders was arguably one of the best and exciting we have witnessed in modern times. And of course he will always be remembered for ‘that’ goal v Wimbledon (below) which is even more iconic after today.
RIP Dalian Atkinson 😓
