Such a shame. I used to see him quite regularly in Sainsbury's at Reedswood. Great player for us.

That is sad to hear. One of my favorite Villa players too; I hope he is getting the support he needs.

Very sad news. Earlier this year somebody in the 'Memories' section posted an article about Big Chris and it really upset me that a former Villa captain was living alone in what appeared near poverty. I really do hope there is somebody around to take care of him and as Bernie said, gets the support he needs.

I wasnít aware of that. What a real shame. He always comes across as a positive character every time Iíve seen him.
