What an awful day.

Terrible news that former Villa defender Ugo Ehiogu has died at the age of 44.

He suffered a cardiac arrest at Tottenham’s training ground on Thursday.

Thoughts with his family at this sad sad time.

Villa and Blues will wear black armbands on Sunday and there will be a minutes applause.

I thought instead of going into a long article, it would be fitting to pay tribute to him with some of the great images of his time with us.

RIP big man.

  • Just 44… get out and live folks, don’t take it for granted. One of my tattoos reminds me, no matter what health wise… Get up. Get out. Live.

  • An absolute colossus at the back. I knew he’d been taken ill but, to die at 44 is such a waste.

  • What a man? one of our greats, some partnership himself and the black Pearl. Merse summed it up on his interview with Sky with genuine emotion ” Only the good die young” 3 Great Villa Men gone in the recent past. COTVABU

  • They say things come in 3s… with Dalian last year and Ugo this year, someone needs to keep a close watch on McGrath…

  • Amongst other memories, I will always remember his goal against Leicester at VP to keep our unbeaten start to the season under JG. RIP Big Man.

  • Been reading the tributes being made about Ugo. I don’t mind admitting, I’ve had tears in my eyes a couple of times today. Such a sad, sad loss. No age at all. Another Holte Ender in the Sky…….

  • I heard he’d collapsed at Spurs’ training ground but was genuinely shocked when I found out he’d passed. No age at all and a classy centre half and I doubt anyone across football would have a bad word to say. All thoughts to his family.
