  • I am so very sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of meeting your father in September last year at the Ipswich V Rotherham home match, I arrived at Portman Rd and found I had not got my season ticket! Your father saw I was upset and immediately gave me 2 match tickets for the Coop stand ! He wouldn't take any payment and he told me with great pride in his voice that Bart Bialkowski was his son and a goalkeeper for Ipswich Town. I was so pleased and very grateful for your father's generosity and kindness, I will always remember that special day and his lovely smile.

  • Condolences to the guy and his family from north of the Waveney. Having been in the same boat myself I know it's a tough call to go back to work, let alone work in the public and TV eye. Hope he's given suitable time to come to terms with it as some things are far more important than football.
