My childhood hero along with Peter Osgood. Captain at 18 a Chelsea legend who when he played for England there was enormous pride amongst Chelsea fans as we were short of star players back then. Thoroughly decent bloke no ego at all and always had time for the fans RIP Butch.

Gutted.

Always thought he was the ideal assistant manager (former player, skipper and a fan), was let go unfairly by the club in 2010-2011 but to his credit was never bitter and handled it with class.

RIP Ray Wilkins.

Thanks for all you have given and done for Chelsea FC.

 

Lot's of Love from me.

 

That's the worst thing about life is dying.

 

I hope you are in a better place.

 

Blessings and love to all who knew you well.

 

I know they will be feeling lots of pain for the next few months.

 

The last few moments before dying, scarey feeling.

I hope there is no hell for us.

We humans don't deserve this.

Genuinely gutted about this. Ray was a good egg. He was always positive when talking about our club. A Legend in my eyes. R.I.P fella.

In light of the today's news I'm more than ever disgusted by the way he was let go in 2010. A club legend should never have to leave on such terms ffs.

Exactly and I am a bit angry with the club - sacked for allegedly saying to Roman and Gourlay ''Well if you ever played the game you'd know differently''. Booted out the next day. His heavy drinking started soon after. 

Anyway I was privileged to see him play loads of games -as were you Iggy ? Fuck me if you think we are a one man team with Hazrd, you should have seen us when we were with Wilkins. Midfield maestro. Never forgotten.
