One Foot in the Grave
This week saw the sad loss of Argyle's greatest followers and as well as an upstanding polititian. Michael Foot passed away at the age of 96 after years of faithful service to the Greens and to the country. Many fans have described how he used to be the Pied Piper of away games, with a queue of green, white or black shirts following him around foreign towns and cities to the match, or enjoying a pint or ten with the man. Off the pitch Michael was then a radical man, and a left wing rebel, enjoying a spell as leader of the House of Commons during Callaghan's tenure as PM and has even been hailed by Margaret Thatcher as "a great parliamentarian and a man of principles". RIP Michael.
