With great sadness I'm posting that forum member Richard Field (il ferret) passed away tragically on 4th May 2017.

Richard has been a member of the forum since near the beginning of the Channel 4 Football Italia forum days and through the various iterations of the forum.
Here's a link to a cached instance of the forum on 17th March 2004, which shows he started the Footballers Name game, listed under 'Topic Starter': http://web.archive.org/web/200403...&s=162603557&f=2576000511
Richard revived the Serie A Betting game on 20th August 2008 (it was initially started by forum member delpiero in 2004). He was a genuine bloke, was pals with everyone, good conversation and always willing to help out the forum community so he will be massively missed.

Richard supported Venezia as Venice was one of his favourite places. Travel writing on his website (https://abitofculture.net/) was Richard's passion, and here you can read his article combining his passions for travel writing and Venezia: http://europeanfootballweekends.b...football-club-unione-venezia.html

Richard was in his 30's or early 40's and was survived by his wife Katherine and newborn child. He has an older sister Natalie and his father is Peter. He passed away tragically, no other information is known at this time.

My condolences to his family, may he rest in peace.

The Serie A Betting Game will be renamed the Richard Field Betting Game this season and then the RF Betting Game thereafter, in the same way the MPC Championship was renamed after Marcello passed away.

That's terrible news. I remember il ferret from the various incarnations of this forum. He came across as a genuinely good chap.

My condolences to his family and friends.

RIP Richard.
