Lord Attenborough, who sadly passed away, was not just a giant on the silver screen, but a giant in the shaping of Chelsea Football Club.
'Dickie' who had trained with the club before filming Brighton Rock, was responsible for bringing many Hollywood greats to Stamford Bridge during the 1960s.
Most importantly, Lord A refused to sell his shares to the freehold of Stamford Bridge in the 80s with many property developers waiting for some prime real estate in London's fashionable west end.
Lord A became the clubs life president, and Chelsea has always had the biggest part of his heart.
In recent years, illness had kept Lord A away from Stamford Bridge. Renaming the East stand would cement his legacy and would be a fitting tribute to a man that epitomised what is was to be Chelsea.
The idea is being taken to the club this Thursday. So if we can show the club our support.
