Bert Williams who played in goal when we lost 1-0 to the USA in 1950 receives an award.

Saw the interview with him on SSN. So humbled by the whole thing and extremely grateful. Fantastic.

Champion Jockey Tony McCoy receives an OBE.

  • Simon Cowell is to be knighted presumably because he's now made more than £100 million. Great achievement, well done to him.
  • Fair play to Catherine Zeta Jones on being awarded a CBE for services to the elderly in America.
  • And don't forget Simon Jordan's MBE for entertainment in SE7.
  • Has Chris Powell been overlooked again?

    Good to see Andy Ripley honoured.

    He was a magnificent rugby player and athlete but is now sadly suffering from prostate cancer.

    The man is an inspiration.
  • David Seaman ought to be getting something round about 2020 for his services to Brazil...
  • What about Brucie ?
  • All credit to the station announcer at Fenchurch Street. Not sure anyone's ever listened to her though, when you come out of Tower Hill tube there's a tv screen telling you all the trains and platforms, so before you get to Fenchurch Street you know exactly where you've got to go.

    Just seen that on the news. Absolute joke. MBE forservices to Public Transport purely because she has been a station announcer for 12 years. Even she seemed embarrassed as she tried to put on her best posh voice for the news.
