RIP Seb Lewis

Tahnoon Nimer and Matt Southall should be shifting uncomfortably today because our football club has never been about them and their bogus duplicity. Really, no one cares about you.

Players and managers come and go and they get paid handsomely to do so. Football is about it’s fans and this morning the country and our football club lost one of it’s greatest. Seb Lewis known to us all was the true legend.

Seb died this morning of COVID-19, just 38 years old.

His big smile, the beard, the baseball cap, the flag, the ‘worm,’ Seb was a fixture of football grounds up and down the country and home ends and away ends will never be the same. Up until the suspension of games Seb was on 1,076 games in a row, not missing a game for over 22 years. True Legend.

I wrote last night the world will never be the same after we come through the other end of the Coronavirus. Charlton games won’t be the same. RIP Seb. Truly #MadeinCharlton.

My thoughts are with all of Seb’s family and friends.

Please stay indoors and if you have to go out, keep your distance.

    I used to see Seb in the NW quad where I always go when attending. I’d like to see his flag permanently adorn the back of that area.

    (if we still have a club that is)

    • Daggs – That is a great idea. I’d love the club to do that.

    Very sad news about Seb he certainly was Mr Charlton he will be sadly missed. But away from the real sad side of life, the reality that is our Charlton at this moment makes no sense of at all. I amongst many who love this club, wish that those who have our future in their hands get of their high horse and sort this mess out before all of us loose our heritage that has been in our blood for over a century. I’m sure I speak for many who are sick of all the uncertainty surrounding our Charlton.. A message from a very fed up supporter of 54 years Michael Sent from my Huawei phone

    Thank you for letting us know CA. I am so upset – Sebby was a pupil at my husband’s school and I will never forget him coming to a game with a group of schoolkids on a freebie ticket and him running up and down outside Charlton Park yelling – David Whyte, Whyte, Whyte. -he was beyond excited.
    Such awful times – bracing ourselves in London for the next few weeks in particular. Stay safe everyone.

    • Thomas Tallis wasn’t it? Devastating news, devastating times all around. Stay safe LP.

    Yes, Tallis.
    So sad -fantastic tributes from the players and of course Sir Chris – how he would have loved that.
