Sad news reaches uz through the grapevine of the death of a Toon fan caalled Big Billy Robinson who hailed from Lobley Hill!

Billy who waz larger than life and az "daft az a brush", went with me to several away games in the 1970's alang with hiz sidekick 'Punter the Hunter'!

Billy once sat on the bonnet of mee car az we drove slowly through very thick fog on the way back from Liverpool one day, with hiz hand on hiz foreheed az he gave me frantic directions, to stop me runnin off the road! (yi could anly see aboot six feet in front!)

It waz hilarious az we drove ower the 'A66' cross Pennine route with Billy shoutin' and baallin instructions az he peered into the 'pea-souper'!

We were later stopped by some traffic 'Dibbles' near Scotch Corner and aa waz given the breatherlizer az Billy ranted and raved in the backgroond!
Aa passed the test and we were allowed to carry on wor way!

Anothaa fan who sadly died after the Arsenal game caalled 'Gus', waz a regular on wor Fairs Cup  'jaunts' in the 1960s and who a'd had a (few!)drink with in Bordeaux centre, before wor Europa League game last season!

Both will be sadly missed

RIP  Billy and Gus
