Eddie B - RIP
It is with a very heavy heart that I must sadly deliver the news that our very own Eddie B took his own life this week.

He absolutely adored West Ham with a real passion and hugely enjoyed the banter on this forum.

Our very own king of the 'cut and paste' has released his demons and gone on his next journey.

RIP my fantastic, loyal, and brilliant friend. Until we meet again, Eddie.

Any of you at the funeral yesterday?

Hope he had a good turn-out.

Rest in peace Ed and I hope you're somewhere better.

Has the funeral taken place yet? I feel so sad about this still, not because I knew him but I did go to school with him and had a few whomail laughs with him years ago about our Hall Mead days.

Rest well buddy, I hope you found the respite from whatever drove you to this awful outcome.

I was in the BML and there was a fair amount of applause.

Should have organised white hankies so that fellow WHOERS could identify each other.

Re: Eddie B - RIP - 48th minute applause please at Brighton game
Chin/Charley,

Good to hear. I thought it was a club one, and a bit disappointed to hear nothing on TV. Good his friend from here etc acknowledged. Again rest in piece, still shocking this one.

Chim yes I was in 256 and it could be heard at my end, as you say not a bad response considering nothing official was arranged by the club.

Re: Eddie B - RIP - 48th minute applause please at Brighton game
Considering there was nothing official arranged with the club a surprisingly large number of supporters stood and applauded.

I stood up (although I was just about the only one in my section) and had a think not just about Eddie but everyone we've lost over the years. In certain areas virtually everyone stood up.

The really nice thing was that we'd just conceded an own goal literally a minute before the applause. I'd like to think if the boys were looking down on us they would have laughed and said 'fucking typical of my luck'.

The trouble is far to many of them and its just human nature people just get turn off by it all and start complaining about them.

Re: Eddie B - RIP - 48th minute applause please at Brighton game
For those going to the game perhaps we can get an update for what time the fans will get to pay their respects to the other fellow hammers whose untimely demise all coincided at this unfortunate time
So far only Eddie B's is confirmed, hopefully this can be updated as and when the info comes in:

Amsterhammer - tbc
Eddie B - 48th minute
Gavros - tbc
Whitester - tbc

First time I've been on here in about a year. This is terribly sad news. Always seemed like a really nice bloke. RIP fella.

Blunders - They did that at the Bournemouth game.

Not wanting to go too far off the actual subject of this thread (off topic on WHO I hear you say, never?!) but personally I'm not a fan of these impromptu, seemingly random minutes of applause during games.

ALL lost fans should be remembered and given the same treatment.I think this would be a much more decent and respectful way of doing it.

Maybe during half time at say the last home game of the calendar year, or even the first game of the season, there should be a 'In Memorium' section like they do during the Baftas or Oscars to remember those we've lost in the past year?
