Just a word about former Villa and England defender Ugo Ehiogu who sadly passed away at the young age of 44 just a few days ago. In football you meet many nice guys but rarely one as unassuming as UGO. I had the pleasure of interviewing him on many occasions and while I found him to be an intimidating, feared and aggressive man on the pitch he was a polite quiet gentle giant off it. In the days before press officers I would go to Bodymore Heath and sit having a bite to eat with the players while John Gregory was busy. Ugo was always polite but had little mischievous way about him and he loved the banter usually at my expense and usually about Blues. RIP top man.
