    Very sad news. An Albion legend as many have said. Only knew him from on here in terms of engaging with him personally, although I was well aware of who he was and what he did for the club and community. On NSC, for me, he was always a very nice, knowledgeable and likable character.

    RIP Ed.

      Really, really sad. RIP.

      Oh that's very sad. I knew him well. I spent a morning with him at the court hearing, and was a member of the Seagulls Party and helped with leafleting when they were standing in the local elections and we attended the same Amex presentation. RIP Ed, and my condolences to Roz. Along with Paul Whelch, that's two of the Falmer heroes departed now.

      Such sad new. My thoughts are with Roz and his family.

      And such a shame he never saw us in the Premier League.
      True. But there was a time when it seemed by no means certain he'd even get to enjoy seeing the team promoted, so perhaps we should be happy for the fact that he did. We could be sad that he won't see the Albion in the Premier League, but;

      (1) He's bowed out having never seen us lose a Premier League game, something which the rest of us are highly unlikely to achieve

      (2) As I suggested to some of the mods, Ed himself would probably tell you he'd seen the Albion in the top flight many a time, and say a great big "Bollocks to you, SkySports, and your overhyped, post-1992 football preposterousness".



      Pleasure to have known you, Ed. You'll be missed.

      The lady has foolishly attempted to join the conversation with a wild and dangerous opinion of her own. What half-baked drivel! See how the men look at her with utter contempt.

      Lovely bloke, who I was fortunate enough to meet through NSC back in the early days.

      RIP

      Such sad news.

      In a world where so many push themselves forward for their own benefit or pride, Ed was one who knew stuff and knew how to get things done without any of that.

      A few times I saw quite steely side in his determination, but always with humour and humility - and always a wise word when it was needed.

      What a sad day for Roz, his family, friends and colleagues... and all of us on NSC and in the wider Albion community.

      I didn't know him personally but am genuinely saddened to hear this.

      As stated he was an important figure in helping get the club to Falmer and thus where we are now. His reports on the public inquiry not only made complicated matters simple and understandable but also interesting. For someone living so far away from Brighton they made me feel connected with the fight for Falmer and ensured I knew what was going on.

      R.I.P not just to an NSC legend but an Albion one as well.

      Never knew him, but I know what he did, and for that I am grateful. Always words of wisdom on here. RIP.
