Its sad not horrible, Pol has not been well.
Ah okay, didn't realize that. I wasn't aware he had been ill, I realize he had some financial problems in the past few years, but not health wise.
Hopefully he is now at peace.

Did you ever wqtch him play, he was before my time, but old time footy fans have told me he was a real game changer and an All time Great
