RIP Bobby Campbell

Bobby Campbell sadly passed away yesterday at the age of 78. When in charge of Chelsea during the late 80s and early 90s he helped us bounce back from relegation and even finish an amazing 5th the following season in the top division. That season was where I had my first away game outside of London and we went top of the league after beating Everton 1-0 and did not win again for an absolute age.
He was constantly seen at the Bridge in recent years occupying a prime seat in the ground. I had an occasional chat with him from the West Upper and he described our defending as "shocking" after the deserved loss to Bradford last year in the FA Cup.
He always found time to sign autographs for fans when we were in the East Lower back then and that is why I have fond memories of him. 

My condolences to his family.
