It’s been overwhelming, but it has been a huge help. Can’t deny that some of the tears have been from laughing at the memories. Thank youVery sad to read this news. I Bought Tom's fanzine back in the '90s and got to know him well at away games, He loved City and was seriously funny at times. He can't be much older than me. I hope his wife and family can see how well was respected amongst us City fans. RIP mate.
He’s still got that press cutting somewhere, as he took great pride in showing it me when we first started seeing other. Obviously out to impress :). I’ll try and find it for ThursdayAn earlier post jogged my memory: The Times did a piece on Tom as part of their brilliant “Down Amongst The Dead Men” weekly series on City in division 2. It is reproduced in the brilliant book of the same name. The gist of it was that City’s continued shitness and his devotion had affected Tom’s mental health and cost him relationships.
