A friend just said Lenny Woods has died. Couldn't find a thread on it but sure a lot of people will remember him. Very sad. Go and find Bobby for a song Lenny. RIP

Heard that sad news last night , always remember Bobby and Lenny holding court on the coach back to some small airport after losing to PSG in the cup winners cup semi final in 97 ( I think ) , gets to the airport and buses straight to the plane no passport checks , gets on the plane which is about 30 too many for the seats so the stewardess tells everyone without a seat to sit in the aisles for take off .

The one stewardess locks herself in the cabin with the pilots for take off and duration while bobby continues the singing on the sound system of the plane once we’ve taken off . Two cracking reds now reunited

That’s right it was an airforce base , actual armed police / military guiding you onto the plane , the coach just pulled up to the steps of the plane straight from the ground 😀

We had a transfer coach from Beauvais into the city then back from the Parc des Princes but we went through the terminal building for sure coz I remember loads of lads pinching stuff out of the shop and the woman shouting at them. She could have done with some armed Police in there!

It was only my second Euro away so a bit of an eye opener.

Didn't know him, but knew who he was. In fact, everybody who was at least semi regular on Euro away's (or any aways for that matter) either knew him, or knew who he was.

Always in the ale house, or back of the coach starting the songs. Although I didn't know him, I spoke to him a couple of times. Made me laugh so much.

Great arl timer, he'll be missed. Think the Echo wrote a piece on him once. RIP.

Nice gesture by the club.

I didn't know Lenny at all until we were wandering around the marquis at Sabena Goetchen airport in Istanbul in 2005, the day after, and we heard singing. So we walked towards it - 4 guys in perfect harmony - Bobby Wilcox, Lenny and 2 others. We just stood and listened. Ever since we referred to them as the Barbershop Quartet :D Saw Bobby a lot at Euro aways in airport bars etc, and knew who Lenny was through him. Always say him around.

We have lost a few away regulars since the last match :'(

Good to see the club respond to Lenny who gave so much in his devotion to the club, Echo article for those who don't know Lenny's face. RIP

Lenny and Bobby now reunited in heaven, and probably got St Peter singing the harmonies. Cracking fella was Lenny, always time for you saying hello, whether at an away game, or on the concourse at half time on the Kop. The word legend is sometimes overused, but in his, (and Bobbys case), legend was not enough to describe them. True Scousers, barrel of laughs, and songs for any generation. Always remember the two of them in the bar at Brighton Railway station singing The Deadwood Stage, priceless. Always came out with the same saying as they camped out Ina spot in the bar, And ere we are, and ere we are.

It was Lenny who wrote 'On our way to Roma' in 1977 wasn't it? For the last three or so home games of that season - all lock-outs - this was the song that the Kop loved singing. It established a mood inside the ground and with the team that took us all the way to our first European Cup. When I think of the Kop at its greatest I think of that song - and 28,000 Kopites swaying as we sung to the music of Arrivederci Roma. "Vatican Bells will be ringing.....": Unforgettable.

RIP Lenny
