As people may remember from my reaction to the death of Scott Parker's Dad, I'm not into insincere, maudlin nonsense. So what if the sick parent of a footballer passes away? It is a personal matter and the RIP crap is insincere claptrap.
However, when a two day old baby dies, that is a different matter. There will be a minute's "appreciation" for the life of Billy Sharp's son before the game with Boro and the family of football should unite tonight by joining in. We all lose parents, losing a new born baby is too, too cruel.
