John Hollins R-I-P

Recommended Posts

John’s family lived two streets from me growing up on Bushy Hill near Guildford. There were about 500 Chelsea fans at primary school. One Bristol City fan as well

RIP John! I was only chatting about you at the weekend!

Really nice guy, and an excellent footballer who epitomised Chelsea....and played 744 professional games in his career.   What a special guy and fantastic character, who would be worth £30 mill plus in today's market?   RIP John.

My "2nd" team back then.

I watched John play against Bristol City back in 1972 in the Gordon Parr testimonial match my first match at the gate. Great to see that Chelsea side which included Osgood, Hudson, Chopper Harris etc. John Hollins very much the unsung hero of that team a true legend RIP
