Yesterday, we said goodbye to another long time lad from up this way, namely John "Gonzo" Gonzales, aged 61 who had battled against his illness for a long time. He was well known to plenty, in and around our surrounding area as well as Watford ,Hemel, MK, Fulham, North Kensington etc and BITD,would have been seen in The Ifield, The Lily,7 Stars, The tournament, POW etc and had for a few years, shared a season ticket with similar long term supporter, his sister,Maria.

The club had previously been told of his passing and sent a letter of condolence and supplied a bag of lapel pin badges which were worn by plenty, including those who don't follow Chels.

Carried from the church to the tune of the Liquidator, he was buried in Stanmore, North west London with a Chelsea flag covering his coffin and family and friends remembered him and his love of old school reggae with the usual enthusiasm after.

So, no more will players be a accused of being " Lacka-sidaisycal" !

RIP Gonz.

There is a flag being made at the moment 60 x 40 foot with all the names of Chelsea Fans that have left us. May be too late to get him added there is a group on Facebook called North Stand do your Job who are organising it

Tribute flag, lovely touch by fellow blues.

There’s some good lads there sadly no longer with us. Tommy Davis shared our villa in St Tropez when we played Marseille in 99- kept us all laughing- they don’t make them like him anymore.

RIP

There's an old St Helier Arms regular at 3:42, the one who hasn't got long hair. Not a Chelsea, or even a football, bod, but a good old mate from back in the day at Gaynesford High School and the Arms.
