Rory Colquhoun
« on: October 21, 2008, 07:53:24 AM »
Ive heard a bit of a whisper that an old mate from back in the seventies has been killed.  He was a Blue Nose and a bit of a lad, he actually travelled away with us sometimes when we were playing a team with a bit of a reputation.

Anyway, the last time I saw him was at Goodison about four seasons ago, does anyone know anything about what happened to him, apparently there was a big thing in the Echo on his death, I've done a search but come up with nothing.  Anyone got any info?

I knew him well.

Is a fuckin shame that he's gone mate. I didnt see him for a while and down Lark Lane last winter I bumped into him. He said to me how's it going and I said shit as Ive got a cold. He turns round and said to me Ive got cancer mate. Typical Rory always having a buzz. Was with him for the National this year and we both done Comply Or Die whcih was ironic considering the circumstances. I asked for his number of a mutual friend a few weeks ago and I heared that he had taken a turn for the worse.  I didnt know that he died until Sunday when a mutual friend told me.

Fuckin' shame. 

I hear that some lads made an Everton and Liverpool flag for Madrid. If its true then people should respect the reasons why there is an Everton crest at a Liverpool game.

RIP Rory you will be missed by all.

Fuckin' shame eh.

He was really good mates with one of my mates and everytime I seen him we'd have a good gab and a drink.  Was funny though when I met last winter and I had a cold. He asks how I was and I said feel like shit mate as Ive got a cold. He turns round with that smirk of his and said  " I've got cancer mate "and takes off his hat to reveal his baldy bonce.

Sound fella.

Was that the memorial flag last night at the match. I heared rumours that one was getting made in honour for our dear friend Rory. It looked to me like a white background with blue writing on it.

BSBW did you see it?

Nice touch by whoever done it.  I never saw it though mate, saying that it was half five in the morning down here and I was watching it on ESPN.

Ive started a thread  in the LFC section . Have a look mate. It looked like a white flag with blue writing on it and possibly a face and an EFC badge.

I watced it in GMT time and was sober.

Just put Rory Colquhoun in the search and a Rory the 'Legend' tribute page can be found.

Met him for the first time when we played Man Utd away a few years ago. Great feller,hard as nails..... had me in bulk. I didn't realise at the time that he was a blue.

Nice one Nicko. I was typing in something else.

Yep. He was a proper blue alright.

I perefect example of his humour are these two. 

1). Was funny though when I met last winter and I had a cold. He asks how I was and I said feel like shit mate as Ive got a cold. He turns round with that smirk of his and said  " I've got cancer mate "and takes off his hat to reveal his baldy bonce.

2)/ Also, Last years National day I met him in the bookies. It was around about the time he was taking his mediaction for cancer. I asked him what he done and he said ' Comply or Die ' abd grinned at me.

If anyone can help with this I'd be chuffed.
