                I could have sworn Clive James was dead already. But, it seems, he's not. Whose metaphorical grave have I been laying flowers on then?

                And Phil the Greek is already taken.

                                  Some of these names were selected in the first Deathpool 15 years ago. Leaving aside the obviously facetious nominations, at least a dozen nearly-dead from 2002 are still hanging on.

                                      Unless I'm missing something, I think longeared is the first in with the DofE, isn't he?

                                      The wrong font for Kirk Douglas is annoying me (copied and pasted) so I'm going to edit it to the proper typeface.

                                            Oof, both the Charltons now picked. Sadly the clock is ticking on the 1966 squad, especially those who did a lot of heading.

                                            Nish's suggestion of wrestlers was a good one - British Bulldog, Macho Man, Big Boss Man all gone, to name a few.

                                                  I mentioned this thread to Ms johnr the other day, and that I was thinking of suggesting Leon from Gogglebox. But he hasn't made it to 2018, sadly. Can I have half a point for that?
