Re: gypsy joey james

That is really sad news Daniel.  He bore his illness well over the last few years and was always chipper.  I'll miss his "Hello Bruv".

Re: gypsy joey james

Joey and me travelled home and away for the last 9 seasons and I feel so incredibly sad. I hope the club can pay some sort of tribute to him on Saturday. We shared a love of Tooting, Chelsea and Beer, but not necessarily in that order. R.I.P. Gypsy Joe.

Always enjoyed the occasional chat with you and Joe behind the goal. Informative and fun. Sad when we lose such characters - but their memory will live on as part of terrace folklore.

Hope to see you soon Mr Ultra.

Re: gypsy joey james

Danny, I was at the Erith & B cup game and hoped to see you in the bar before the game. I'm going to try and persuade the Ball & Chain to let me go to the game on Saturday, would love to buy you a beer or two.

Mr. Rubbery, I hope Joe provided the information and I provided the fun to our occasional chats.

If anyone is in contact with anyone at the club who has any clout,  (or if anyone with any clout reads this post) I'd love it if they could play ' He ain't heavy, he's my brother' by The Hollies before kick off or at half time. Me and Joe always  sponsored a player's kit and called ourselves 'The Blues Brothers', I'll probably blub if they do though https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons2/crying2.png

Re: gypsy joey james

Hi - I’m trying to organise playing of the song for you - if not Saturday then at another game in near future. There are a few that have recently passed that club should be recognising.

I’ve been asked by the programme editor for a short tribute to Joe. If anybody would like to write something that would be brilliant. We are also trying to source photos.

Send me a DM and I can share my email.

Thanks
Stephen
