I’m really saddened to report that long-time forum member and much-respected ‘Well fan AndyP passed away suddenly last night. 
 

A very good guy and I’m sure even those who didn’t know him can tell by his posts on here how sound he was and how much of a diehard Dosser he was.

Rest in peace, Andy.

Sad news indeed, remember him back from the original Exiles Club that he (I think?) set up back in the 90's.

Really sad news, I’ve known Andy for years going back to the days of the supporter’s buses.

I'm shocked. Although, I've known Andy for a long time I don't think he couldn't have been that old surely? Condolences to his family and friends.  Very sad.

Trying to get my head round this, was only speaking to him on here a couple of days ago. True loss of measured views, always fair and always strived to include as many on here as possible.

Fitting that he "won the day" for his last post on his last day.

Frazzie, I'm sure you'll pass on the groundswell of sympathy that will grow on here to the family. If there are plans for something to commemorate him in any way please advise.

Jeezo, never met the man, but always enjoyed reading his posts on here, was always a very sensible and balanced poster who I felt had great respect amongst other posters.

Rest in peace, AndyP.

I’m absolutely shocked, he was such a fair, level headed, and knowledgable individual. What a truly sad day for not just his friends and family but the wider Motherwell fc family and forum. Rest in peace Andy.

Didn't have loads of dealings with Andy in person, but whenever I did, I always found him a smashing guy.  And as others have said, a wise and funny voice on here.

Just really sad news...

A genuinely nice guy who always had time to chat about his beloved Motherwell.

A sore loss for everyone who knew him.

Really saddened to hear this. One of, if not the best poster on this site. I used to enjoy reading his post match analysis after every game.

 

Condolences to his friends and family.

Absolutely gutted to hear this news. For an exile, this place has been absolutely vital for keeping up with the goings on back home and Andy was always the poster I respected most, always calm, measured and fair when hotter heads tend to prevail. I always put a lot of stock in what he had to say as a result and always appreciated the thoughtfulness he put into his posts. As I alluded to, when you can't go to games, his insight was invaluable. He always came across as a thoroughly decent bloke and I'd have loved to have sat and had a pint and a chat with him at a game at some point. Yet another reminder that life is temporary and fleeting so live hard and love hard. My thoughts are with his family and friends right now. RIP Andy, you were one of the good guys and I'll miss you.

Can only echo the sentiments already posted. Known him for more years than I care to remember. One of life’s gentlemen and will be a loss to our support.

Safe in the arms. Thoughts go to his family.

Absolutely gutted, had the pleasure of doing the MFC Podcast with Andy P and Andy Ross through the last year, he was such a good guy. Always the winner of any quiz. I had the pleasure of doing a podcast with Andy P in May talking about the cup final, the passion from both of us showed how much football meant to him.

I will miss speaking to him about all things Motherwell, he had a photographic memory about our team.

I send my condolences to his family who i know he spent alot of time with. 

RIP Andy, you will be missed

I didn’t know Andy personally but knew of him through the forum. As many others have said if I hadn’t managed to make it to a game his view was the one that I looked out for as it was always a fair, honest and balanced one.

RIP Andy

Never knew the man. 

Always felt his posts were fair, balanced and polite----- features of his personality I would wager.

Big loss. 

Rest in peace Sir.
