I've started to write in this thread, then deleted so many times.
When Cal and I first started to go to Hillsborough as dad and lsd, we had just moved from Brizzle to Epworth and I found Owls Alive and Owlsonline. At a certain age Cal wanted to go onto the top away from the South. So I asked where people go and Tee, Beastie and Hollie asked us to join them at the rromt of the Kop with Kizza, Liam Mark and others. Even when I was working away Tee would pick up Cal at Meadowhell and along with Beastie and Hollie they would look after him even when we made the player award to Matk Beevers. We had a real Comradery going for a few seasons with Beastie an ever-present.
On my own on the way to Wembley in 2016 I ended up in a seat across from Beastie and Hollie and I imbibed in the famous "Special Oasis". Excellent stuff.
We had many discussions about gigs we'd been to and the good old Butlins punk weekenders and Stone Valley festivals with Stranglers and Boomtown Rats headlining.
A proper gent. I really hoped he'd fight and win. I lost my brother in a similar way. He was called Steve and was a fireman who passed in 1998.
Cancers a bastard. Too many too young 😪
RIP Beastie, join the blue watch up there with my bro!
