One of the things not many people outside of Leicester would know about our dear departed Chairman.

At Leicester City FC there is a garden of remembrance just behind the ground. Next to one of the benches in there, on match days, there is a bottle of good whisky and proper glasses to drink from.

Vichai had them put there every game, so people can stop by and raise a glass to their departed and spend a few minutes in contemplation.

No publicity over this, no fanfare, just a simple generous act of kindness.

I dip in but never post on here any more, but I feel the need today to just add my bit.

I have cried tears in the last 36 hours for a man I have never met. I visited the ground this morning, saw Birch and Ian Marshall being interviewed - Birch visibly upset talking about the support he got from the Chairman while he got over his heart attack.

If you could design a template for a foreign owner coming into English football, you couldn't go far wrong copying Vichai could you?

Vichai gave us a dream we never had before. And then made it into a reality. Thank you so much. What you and your family did for our club, and the way you did it, will never be forgotten.

He has given me the best eight years of my life. My wife won't thank me for saying this, but my kids (all the boys - and son in law) are also season ticket holders and share my feelings.

The title season, and the European adventure which followed, were absolutely priceless.

The Trophy presentation was THE BEST DAY of my entire life. And always will be.

Thank you, sir.

I cant believe how choked up I am over the death of someone that I have never met. Vichai's death feels like I have lost one of the closest of family members. He came into the club, the city and the community of Leicester and through his actions, generosity and his demeanor he won our hearts and he became part of our family.

Never did he want to break with our history. No colour changes, no name changes, just a love of the club and a desire to make it the best. He promised Champions League football. We never expected that he would fulfill that promise, but he made us the very best. He made us the Champions of England and respected the whole world over. Wherever we go people know Leicester. He made that possible.

Thank you Vichai. You were 'One of our own'.

I don't have a personal story to add, I just want to say that I feel very fortunate that he chose us. I am so grateful for everything he did for the City and for the club, and I am and will forever remain extremely proud that such a kind man is and always will be associated with our club.
Thank you Mr Chairman.

A truly wonderful man .... He turned us into football Kings ..... So, so very proud, and always will be ...... He didn't buy the Premier League title ... He was already in our hearts, that was already set in stone ... A fans chairman, not in it for self gain ... God bless you, Vichai, you were a Chairman in a million ... Your fabulous legacy will live forever. Thank you so very much x

out of the darkness
came a light so bright it lit up a football club
it made sparks fly
it brought smiles
it brought happiness
now the light has gone
up in the sky
may it fly high
and embrace the heavens
take care of him
for it is your gain, and our loss

And though you're gone,
You're with me every single day, believe me.

i've got little to add to all that is said above. even without 2016, he was the perfect owner: quiet, modest, respectful. qualities we all aspire to, but are seldom seen particularly in football. his actions spoke volumes.

but on top of that, to be the architect of the title win - that will never be surpassed, and never be forgotten. he gave us the time of our lives.

Vichai - You and I were born just months apart but our lives and cultures were very different. Iíve supported my club since being taken down by my mum, step dad and grandad as a small kid and they were lifelong fans too.

I believe your unconditional support for my club was just as deep as mine. I really do. You loved us, both the fans and as just as importantly the people of Leicester with all your heart and thatís why Iím so heartbroken at your passing.
I know our joy and pride simply equalled yours in 2016. You truly looked like Willy Wonka when he got his golden ticket. Your generosity and infectious smile showed me you were the real deal. May your God bless you now and above all thank you for passing onto your family those same traits that I hope will help them now and into the future. 💙💙💙💙💙

Thank you for giving us back our pride.
Thank you for giving us something to dream about.
Thank you for making the dream come true.

Thank you for giving me the best father and son times I've ever had with my lad.

You will always be a club legend.

Just a little story which seems to sum Vichai up.
We went to the San Carlo for dinner on a Saturday night.
It was round about the time Jamie Vardy broke the record for those 11 consecutive PL goals.
We were given a table near him and a load of Thai folk. They were all eating great big bowls of mussels like they were going out of fashion. Nothing else. Just mussels.
I couldn't believe it was him. But the waiters confirmed it was.
Anyway I plucked up courage to pop over and say thankyou for everything he was doing at the Club. On the spur of the moment I gave him a teeny LCFC lapel badge. One of the old ones like a mini shield before Bentleys Roof started to flog their badges.
It cost me all of 2 Quid from a vendor outside a warehouse next to the old Half Time Orange in Burnmoor St many years ago.
He was delighted to take it and pinned it on the front of his shirt.
I went back to carry on with ordering our meals.
The waiter pops over to say Vichai would like to buy us a bottle of fizz.
I waved to Vichai and said thanks but no thanks that wasn't why I had given him my badge.
So we had our meal and wanted to get back for MOTD. So I asked for the Jack & Jill.
It was over a Ton.
Anyway 10 minutes later still no bill.
So I asked the waiter to hurry things up please.
The waiter comes over and says the bill had been paid by the Chairman.
I was gobsmacked but he waved to say he was not gonna change his mind.
We shook hands and I genuinely got the impression that he felt very honoured to have received the badge - all of 2 Quid's worth.
Sorry to have wasted your time but I just wanted to tell you about it.

I've not been to a Leicester match since we were promoted but Ive supported them from afar. I watched most of the matches live while working in Qatar and sadly can't do the same now I'm back in the UK. I feel truly gutted that our owner's life (and the 4 others) had to end in such an untimely and tragic way. At least it was almost instantaneous. I do really appreciate what he and his family have done for my club but just as I chose to see my family in Leicester rather than celebrate with others on that famous night in June 2016, I chose to spend my time visiting Leicester today with my elderly mum rather than visiting the ground. It doesnt mean that I don't care but I'd rather focus on the twighlight of my mum's life than pay homage to a man who, although I never met him, I greatly respect. He would have wanted that too. RIP Vishal. Best Chairman ever.

The mark of a very humble man Soho and a wonderful story.

I'm betting that your own small act of kindness with the badge meant something quite special to our Chairman.

I wrote to him a year ago, as Iím on my second marriage and my step son couldnít come to the football with me and my son. It was impossible to get tickets for us all together.

It was a stab in the dark, but I wrote and explained our situation, and asked if he could help in any way as it was heartbreaking trying to explain to my 8 year old stepson why he couldnít come to the football with me and my son.

48 hours later I had a phone call from Jim Connelly. His words were Ďthe chairman has read your letter, and has instructed me to do everything we can to get your stepson a seatí

Within 5 mins of being on the phone my step son had a season ticket, free of charge, next to me and my lad.

A multi billionaire, but made time for people like me and my kids.

Our club will never be the same again.

Rest in peace Vichai. And thank you. For everything x

Just as well it wasn't one of the Bentleys Roof badges - otherwise it would have pinged off his shirt before he got back to his chauffeur driven motor in Granby St and he might have been tempted to ask for his money back!😉😉😉

I always look up at those Buddhist prayer flags that hang over our heads inside the ground.

Traditionally, prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom.

They could've just been hung over the directors box for his family. It makes it feel that we are his family.

RIP Khun Vichai

Reading all of the above has left me on the brink of tears again. I echo the sentiments about Vichai being the games perfect chairman in his respect for our city, club, history, and his respect for us, the fans
I can only hope that his family gain some small crumb of comfort from the knowledge of the great love and admiration that we feel for him and them.
Thinking also of the families of the others lost in this tragic accident and hoping that they too will find peace

Goodbye to you my trusted friend
We've known each other since twenty ten
Together we've climbed the leagues
Learned of love and generosity
Played at home and overseas
Goodbye my friend, weíll say goodbye
When all the fans are singing to the sky
Now that winterís in the air
Flowers and sadness everywhere
Weíll think of you and youíll be there

We had joy we had fun
We had a season in the sun
But the leagues that we climbed
Were great seasons in our time.

Vichai,

You gave us scarves, t shirts, badges, cake and beer.
But it wasnít about that, you just wanted to join our cheer.
It could have been any team, you chose us.
You picked the men to drive our bus.
And helped to turn us into a team that played without fear.

After a few years we won the Championship.
We stayed up, god knows how we finally got a grip.
With Ranieri as our lead
WE ONLY WENT AND WON THE PREMIER LEAGUE!!
With you we went on a amazing Champions League trip.


You became part of our cityís dna.
With charity gifts and donations to King Richardís burial day.
You gave us the most amazing few years.
And all of us have cried a few tears.
Thank you Boss.Three cheers for an amazing man. Hip, Hip Hooray.
