Frank Keating, one of the UK's finest ever sports writers has retired from the Guardian. Mathew Engels appreciation concludes with links to ten of his finest pieces. This is brilliant writing which happens to concern itself with sport, so there is no need for any "doesn't this belong on Sportfilter" type snideness.

Doesn't this belong on Sportsfilter?

Sorry -- it's a nice article, and I'm glad you gave me the chance to read it -- but come on, you were asking for it!

Thanks for the feast, Fat Buddha! I read all ten Keating pieces in one go. I specially enjoyed Arlott's Last Test.

Haynes suffered 18 glorious, exasperated years for Fulham, carpeting out the world's most sumptuous passes to a motley crew of single-jointed unappreciative nuts: a Brylcreemed Schweitzer among the pygmies.

Damn this guy was good -- wish I'd been reading him all along!
