    Just heard this on talkSport. Peter Osgood, ex Chelsea and Southampton player has died aged 59.

    More here.

    Apparently, he collapsed whilst at a funeral.

    Very sad. RIP. :(

    Unbelievable. Saw him at the recent Chelsea - Liverpool game being shown around during half-time.

    Showed to have a really good sense of humour especially when the Liverpool fans were chanting "How many European Cup do you have".

    Shame. RIP

    RIP
    I don't remember him too well. So without trying to sound disrespectful, was he a great player as being claimed? As whenever an ex-player dies they are called legends etc.

    I'm sure if you ask any long-time Chelsea fan to name 2 of their best ever players they'll probably say Osgood as one of them.

    Indeed, a presenter on talkSport has said, along with Zola, Osgood was probably one of the greatest ever Chelsea players.I also heard he was recently named in the all-time greatest Chelsea team.

    Definitely the most gifted striker we ever had & the club's 3rd highest scorer.
    A genuine nice bloke too.

    Quite possibly the greatest player to have ever played for Chelsea.
    I saw him a few years ago at a local pub presenting prizes for the pub quiz (he was a friend of the owner), he was such a nice person, getting along with anyone who wanted a chat.

    R.I.P

    Sad day - some chaps going to the Shed Bar tonight.
    I'll raise a glass at home.

    Edit - found - who else could get the star of 1million years BC to wear their kit?

    There's a minutes silence for both Ron Greenwood and Osgood tonight before the England match.

    A big loss to the Blues fans, he was a great player and a pretty good bloke as well.

    RIP Peter mate. :(

    RIP Peter.
    Never really saw him play for chelsea apart from the FA cup victory over Leeds but know enough of him and his stats to say he was a true great at Chelsea.
