    Default Chic Thompson

    Just heard of the death of Chic Thompson, Forest keeper in the 1959 FA Cup victory. Only two survivors now I believe, Geoff Whitefoot and Billy Gray.

    R.I.P. Chic. Thanks for the memory.

    Really sad to hear this. It's half a century since we won the FA Cup. Hardly a surprise that we have few players left from that side.

    Amid the chaos that is LTLF lately, I nearly missed this.

    To quote from the Official Site:

    Charlie 'Chic' Thomson
    Wed 07 Jan 2009

    Charlie 'Chic' Thomson, Nottingham Forest's goalkeeper when they won the FA Cup in 1959, has died. He was 78.

    Chic made more than 120 appearances for the club between 1957 and '61 but his finest moment undoubtedly came under Wembley's twin towers as The Reds overcame Luton to land the cup for the second time in their history.

    Forest's Chief Executive Mark Arthur said: "We were deeply saddened to learn of his death and extend our deepest condolences to his wife Pat, family and friends.

    "Chic's name is etched firmly in the folklore of this club and Forest supporters of all ages will mourn his passing."

    Born in Perth, Scotland on 2nd March 1930, Chic was the son of a professional goalkeeper and began his own professional career at Clyde.

    He was bought by Chelsea for £5,000 in October 1952 and helped them win their first league title in 1955.

    He continued to live in Nottingham after his retirement from the game and passed away yesterday after being taken ill.


    God bless, Chic, and thank you.

    "In memoriam tenere, et in pace requiescat".

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    Condolences to the family. Ive got the poster of the 1959 FA Cup final hanging proudly on the wall. You helped Forest win this and therefore will always be remembered as a Forest legend. Thanks for helping to make Forest what it is today. RIP

    Chelsea have done a really nice tribute, well worth a read.

    http://www.chelseafc.com/page/Latest...511948,00.html

    Disappointed that our Official site couldn't be ar*ed to do a bit more research and provide a more fitting obituary.

    Ho hum. Let's just hope that the powers that be get it right for the Plymouth game and give this Red Legend a proper send off with a minutes applause. Question for you all - How many Forest players have won the F.A.Cup and League title? If that's an easy one, how many did it donning a fetching cap?!?

    Thank you for contribution to the cause Chic. God Bless.
