Ihave no idea why – I am scared enough of flying as it is – but the other night we all sat down to watch an old episode of Air Crash Investigation on the National Geographic Channel. I don’t watch it because I like seeing people burnt, mutilated or killed in aircraft but because I find it fascinating how they can investigate a heap of burnt wreckage and discover exactly what went wrong. Which part failed or who made the fatal mistake which brought the plane down. The investigators are presented with the tiny bits left over and they can work out exactly what happened. Terrible disasters but fascinating investigations which determine exactly why the plane crashed.

Johnny King was Tranmere Rovers’ most successful manager and was always the man to find the right words for any occasion. Our favourite quote of his was; “Tranmere will never be able to compete with Liverpool and Everton. They’re like big liners like the Queen Mary, but I see Tranmere as a Deadly Submarine.” Today, we would like to pay our own tribute to Johnny King and make him the inaugural Bear Hero…
