I thought it was going to be about Will Buckley.

Sorry.

Expecting to read that he sank faster than the Belgrano. But that would be just sick and twisted.

RIP.

They should have just chained him to a radiator in their hotel until his first game and this would have never happened

Seen today he sent a message about looking like the plane was about to fall apart.

Harrowing, some days I don't half feel really mortal.

Hello, little brothers, how are you crazy people?

"Brother, I’m dead, I was here in Nantes doing things, things, things, things and things, and it never stops, it never stops, it never stops.

"I’m here on a plane that looks like it’s about to fall apart, and I’m going to Cardiff, crazy, tomorrow we already start, and in the afternoon we start training, boys, in my new team…

"Let’s see what happens, so, how are you brothers and sisters, all right?

"If in an hour and a half you have no news from me, I don’t know if they are going to send someone to look for me because they cannot find me, but you know … Dad, how scared am I!”

Those planes look like flying ladas. What on earth were they thinking.

I've read that he booked the flight himself - not the clubs. Also read that if there was a life raft onboard, there's still hope they could be found. But they doubt very much it had one.

English pilot as well. It's a recovery operation now, rather than a rescue mission.

Very sad.

cant share it on here, but Colin Wanker's press conference prior to him signing eerily asked if the transfer was 'dead in the water'

Hope springs eternal etc, but if a light aircraft hits the sea from 10000 feet or so at 150 mph ish, not sure a life raft would be much use.

You'd have to hope that they had a controlled crash landing which I doubt as there was no mayday call etc.

it gets worse

https://news.sky.com/story/pilot-of-missing-plane-carrying-emiliano-sala-said-he-was-a-bit-rusty-11616128

The pilot flying the missing private plane carrying footballer Emiliano Sala told friends he was "a bit rusty" just a day before take-off.

David Ibbotson - who police identified as the pilot on Wednesday night - made the admission on Facebook before departing from Nantes with the new Cardiff City signing on-board.

The pilot, from Crowle, near Scunthorpe, tagged himself at the French city's airport on Saturday before replying to comments the following day, in which he said he was "a bit rusty with the ILS (instrument landing system)".

When a friend questioned whether that was really the case, Mr Ibbotson replied: "You wanna bet, a little on the high side hehe, better than on the low side."

Why does Willie McKay being involved not surprise me

It's one of the few spots of comfort in our recent struggles that we don't hear of him

So it appears one of his sons was the players 'acting agent' and the other is a Cardiff player. Ermm..
