Re: Muscleaneous Issue 5 By David Gentle

Another fun read from David.Yes Ray, Getty was noted for his meanness but from what i understand, and David will know more about this,Getty helped either Pullum or Oscar out financially when Health and Strength were having difficulties. We need someone like that now to resurrect H&S.

Re: Manfred Hoerberl killed.?

Thanks Ray, so it is true.What a shame,i was really hoping it was a hoax. Such a tragic waste. Yes i grew up in the Manchester area and it was pretty rough in those days.The difference being while there were guns and knives, most fights involved fists and the occasional bear bottle. These days knive...

Re: Manfred Hoerberl killed.?

Thanks Ray, i asked my mate Kevin Fitzgerald, who also lives in Manchester,if he had heard anything.He said nothing on the TV or local papers about it. It really does look like some low life troll has put out a false rumor, which although i detest such things i do hope that is the case in this insta...

Re: Manfred Hoerberl killed.?

From the lack of information regarding a well known iron game figure, it seems as if this is a cruel hoax.Cruel yes, but if it is an hoax then i will be glad to know that Manfred is still alive and well.

Re: Manfred Hoerberl killed.?

On Wikipedia it mentions that he was killed in a Manchester pub on July 28,2019. But citation needed,so no source for the information.

Re: Manfred Hoerberl killed.

Thanks Harry, there was no information on IH forum other than what i reported. My feeling is someone as well known as he was would have been reported on. I hope i jumped the gun with this and that he is still with us. Let you know if i hear anything else,thanks for the help.
Regards,Peter.

Re: Manfred Hoerberl killed.?

I have just read on the Iron History forum that bodybuilder/strongman Manfred Hoerberl has been killed in a pub in Manchester UK. There are no more details at this time,does anyone else have any information regarding this? I know David knew him well at one time.He would have been 55 years old. My Go...
