We often complain about club owners for taking supporters for granted, sucking money out of the game, disrespecting club heritage etc. After listening to the reaction from the Leicester supporters/people this guy was the opposite to this. Free beer for supporters on his birthday, free season tickets for some supporters, paying for a young supporters medical treatment as well as other things around the club and the city... and played a huge part in the miracle of winning the PL.

It's a sad day for the club, and the world of football, that someone who took his position so seriously and gave so much to the game could die in such a tragic incident.

RIP

Indeed, no silly name changes, no silly shirt colour changes. Respecting the club, the fans and the history.

Regardless of what he's done for the club, he has done a lot for the city of Leicester and the people of Leicester. One hopes that his son will continue this.

RIP

He seemed genuinely committed to a club ran as an extended family, with fans engaged and made to feel wanted, welcome and valued. His legacy will be the Premier League they won, which I still don’t think has sunk in as to the enormity of that achievement.
