Tuesday was the hardest day of my life, saying goodbye to my closest friend i have ever had.
Following the hearse with the coffin in along with the Arsenal crest wreath was absolutely heartbraking knowing i will never again go to a game with my best buddy.
The moment the crematorium played U2 'With or Without You' done me in, and finished off with 'Thats Entertainment', was so fitting.
The service was as good as a service can be in this situation, speeches were so moving, especially from Mick, Steve's Dad, said it all, and also the girl's and Jared's speech were superb.
This is only a small snipet of the day, i met so many old friends going back 15 years and some, Wayno and Percy, cant thank you guys enough for attending along with your lovely partners.
Be great to see a few of you soon, thank you all so much for the donations towards the plaque and the monies left over we will be donating to the hospital which looked after Steve.
The generosity shown has totally stunned myself and Steve's family, thank you all so much for everything. what a great bunch of people you are, proud to be a Gooner

God bless you all and see you soon

Hello guys'n'gals

I am new to the forum and felt I had to register to say a massive THANKS.

I grew up with Steve from the start of secondary school and despite a period of absence by myself stayed in touch till his very very sad departure. Steve made me the gooner I am today together with the Ham for those that know him. I am so so proud to be his mate and even more so having looked at all the posts on here. I have Found it very moving.
I hope Steve is there watching down next season having a little word in Mr Wengers ear......
Come on you gooners for charlie charlie
Steve sleep well my friend.

Guy the gooner :cry:
Welcome mate!

Thanks to all of you that have donated, we raised an amazing total of £840.

The stone is being ordered at the end of the week and all the remaining money will be donated to the charity that Steve’s family have chosen; the Neuro ITU at Queen's Hospital where Steve was treated.

Hopefully the stone will be in place for the start of the season or the meet up before the Sunderland game which will be confirmed nearer the time.

It looks like the Sunderland game is the one that most of the online gooner friends will be at including the overseas culchies,
i wonder if it was stressed to the people in charge would they make a special effort to have the stone in place for that game?

Lads,

Just a note, I have been receiving abusive emails from **** last night and today. He has asked me to remove his name from the list because he does not want to be 'associated with anything regarding you or your forum.'

Thought I should let you know the reason.

Dissapointed to hear that. He should just let it rest now.

Take the knobhead's name off the list then - why he has to act like a dickhead towards us after his behaviour towards flash and others is beyond me. The guy has a lot of lads that would have defended him in the past (myself included) but somewhere along the line he has to take responsibility for his own actions and emailing lads to give them any type of abuse is unacceptable imo
