Good read, thanks.
Always wondered about his after Villa career. Knew he went to the US, but that was about it.

A fitting tribute. I was talking to my Dad about Chico last night because he knew him quite well from working with the club in the 70s. He said what a great bloke Chico was.

A great read, Dave. Chico was the epitome of that crazy time in our history in the early 70s....swashbuckling in his style of play and his demeanour.

I had long blond hair as a ten year old kid back in 1970 and one day I was kicking a ball around with my brother in a park in Bournville wearing my Villa shirt and a couple of blokes walking by started chanting Cheee-co - o-o-oÖ.. Cheee-co-o-o-o-o-o ... Made me feel on top of the world. Can't imagine how it must have felt with Holte in full voice.

A lovely tribute Dave, Chico was a key part of the Villa fight back after relegation to Division 3.

Excellent, my dad started taking me down when Chico started under the Doc and players like him are the foundation of my love for the club. I didnít realise though that he had played for Chelsea. These were fabulous days to be a Villa fan I I remember them fondly

Same here. I guess when youíre a kid you donít know or care about the playersí associations. You just care that they are wearing claret and blue at that moment and thatís enough. RIP Chico.
