Sad news. A true Villa icon, gone to soon to join the " Holte Enders in the Sky". Rest in peace Graham, thanks for the memories.

Stunned by this news earlier today.

My favourite memory of him was at Everton in May 1990, what turned out to be the last game of his first stint in charge. I was on the thin away terrace and there must've been 8,000 - 10,000 Villa fans dotted around Goodison, all chanting "we want Taylor" over half an hour after the final whistle.

The fact we weren't celebrating winning the league didn't really matter. He'd taken the club on and turned it around in under three calendar years.

It really felt like we were back.

RIP Sir Graham.

There should be a loud united one minute's appreciation before the match today. Let's hope the fans give it "There's only one Graham Taylor" loud and clear a few times during the match as well.
