Head injury gets taken with utmost seriousness by Pitch editor, Andy Afford. There’s a new book out about Leeds United boss, Don Revie. The history of The Isle of Man TT is plotted in all its high-speed and often dangerous glory by David Wright. There’s a poem, courtesy of Ian McMillan. Cricket World Cup winner Liam Plunkett writes a letter from America. And we say goodbye to such luminaries as Doddie Weir, Nick Bollettieri and the late great Pelé.
