Lots of points allocated around for this one:
bats (joker)
DaveLovesDee (joker)
Dorothy
haggis88
JGK
Oakvillian

47 points for the regular picks, 94 for the jokers.

3) haggis88 - 155
4) bats - 128
5) withabix - 105

New picks required! Either fill in yourself in the red boxes on the spreadsheet, or post it here and someone will fill in for you!!

Edited to add: For those who squabbled about BBC not likely to report his death and we should only have BBC has the official death source etc etc etc: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-41669610

Mr Norbert Stiles, erstwhile footballist, is my replacement pick. I thought he would be older than 75 - but then I suppose he was still quite a young man when at the height of his fame, only 24 at the time of England's world cup victory.
