GEOFF SAYS THANKS

Article In todays Sun:

FORMER England and Crystal Palace star Geoff Thomas is suffering from leukaemia.

Thomas, 38, retired from football a year ago and started a men’s designer clothes business after finishing his career at Crewe.

In a message to Palace fans yesterday he said: “Thank you all for your wonderful messages of support. They mean a great deal to me.

“I have been diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukaemia and have been receiving treatment over the last three weeks, which has improved my blood count. All of this has been a huge shock to me and my family. That is why your support is so special.”

PFA boss Gordon Taylor said the players’ union had been informed.

He said: “Geoff has been in touch with us and we shall do whatever we can to help him.

“It is shocking news but we always take care of our members — even when they have retired.”

A Crewe spokesman said: “We were not aware of this until today and were very sad when we were informed about Geoff’s illness.

“He had two spells at our club and was always a very popular figure about the place.”

Thomas made his name at Rochdale and Crewe, before becoming a big favourite with Palace.

He won nine England caps, was never on the losing side and captained Palace in the 1990 FA Cup final against Manchester United.

The news about his illness comes 24 hours after Millwall fans revealed they are raising funds for Keith Weller.

The former Lions and Leicester star, 57, is also suffering from cancer.

Wish him the best - no one deserves to get such an illness at what is still a reasonably young age!

At PSV and Chelsea can everyone please make an effort to give epic renderings of:
"There's only one Geoff Thomas"
and
"When Geoff went up to lift the Zenith Cup we were there, we were there"

Please pass this on.

I echo everything that has been said by everyone, all of us Geoff Thomas fans.

He's a Palace legend, and here's to being a Palace legend for many many more years to come.

Keep fighting and get well soon. If you ever need cheering up, just pop down to Selhurst for a home game. The football might not do the trick, but the reception you'll get from the fans certainly will !!

Geoff was a great captain and player for this football club and I wish him well in his bid to fight this cancer. In our greatest era Geoff always led by example and deserves his status as a legend. When I was 10 I loved him so much that I got my hair cut like him. He is the man!
