Like thousands of football supporters across the world, I have been left shocked and saddened by the tragic helicopter crash at Leicester City last night.

Everyone’s fears were today confirmed, when it was revealed that owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, was one of five people killed.

In an era where football club owners are never out of the news, usually for all the wrong reasons, I always found it nice that Leicester’s owner was so fantastic.

He did something that will probably never happen again – deliver the Premier League title to a club the size of Leicester City. He bought fans doughnuts, hotdogs, pizza and beer, as well as contributing towards travel costs for those supporters who wished to watch their team at away matches. The chairman was said to have played a positive role in the local community too.

I am sure that I wasn’t the only football fan, who was rather envious of Leicester City fans, with their generous and successful leader!

Equally as sad is the news that the helicopter pilot was sat alongside his fellow-pilot and girlfriend. It has been reported that he heroically steered the chopper away from crowds of people on the ground; instead crashing into a car park – clearly saving hundreds of lives. This shows incredible kindness and bravery, to so quickly think of and act on the needs of others, despite knowing you are seconds from certain death, yourself.

As every human life is precious, it is equally upsetting that another two people also perished.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of all five victims, as well as everyone connected to Leicester City Football Club.

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
