    Can honestly say Bernard was a top top bloke. From hosting my OSC branch for 2 hours in Turin at the team hotel the night before Juventus away ("more Heinekens lads?") to taking the time to talk all things City at a Q&A talk-in on the eve of the Toon title winning season penultimate match in 2012...he was a true Gent.
    I was almost moved to tears at the end of the talk-in, when as host, I asked all the attendees to give a round of applause to Bernard, Buzzer and Brian Marwood for attending. Bernard stopped me and said " no, we'd like to give you the Supporters a round of applause for sticking with the Club through thick and thin".
    RIP Bernard

    Are there any plans to sell red and black scarves? I had one at one stage but no longer. I would purchase one if available.

    City have sent 1.400 scarves to Fulham and Fulham are going to put them out on the seats

    Great idea, Gary. Has anybody at the club shown interest in it?

    the here and now
    I was told by someone that knew him, a few weeks ago that he didn't have long left. Apparently the players bought him an Ipad, so he could watch the matches and the sheik then video conferenced him on it, to thank him personally for everything he did for the club. Apparently even offered to fly him out to get some better treatment.
    R.I.P Bernard.
