i've mentioned the big loud bloke who sits behind me at the arsenal
on a few posts during the season... no not gooner jeff, the bloke who sits
4 seats away from jeff... a bloke we know as 'the walrus'
well on monday night there was no sign of him at the wigan match.
we all thought it very strange as he never misses a game.
then at half time i turned around to chat to gooner jeff and glanced towards
the walrus's position, where i saw this...
the bloke who sits next to the walrus had placed a bunch of flowers
on his seat.
red and white flowers, very arsenal.
the bloke told me the story. the walrus who was singing at the man city
game just 7 days previously was taken ill the next day and died 3 days later.
he was quite a character. he was always singing, always making up new songs
and showing passion for the team he supported.
he will be missed.
