Keep fighting Pat.
Agreed, that is very difficult to read and must have taken a lot of courage to write. I hope the players, fans and anyone connected with the club do him proud this season. I have every intention of doing so, starting tonight.
My word that's a real thump into reality some on here might want to take notice and think before they post the most ridiculous crap tinged with more than just a bit of ignorant venom we all know who these posters are and they should be mightily ashamed of themselves.
Patrick Cryne is now and forever will be a classy, passionate, generous and loyal gentleman.
If you read this forum Mr Cryne can I just say thank you and from my family to yours God bless you.
Wow that really is moving. Thank you Patrick for sharing that with us. Really hope the team can give you nothing but enjoyment,Thank you for everything
Heartbreaking sent shivvers down my spine reading that total Respect
That was heartbreaking to read. It puts football and the opinions it generates into it's rightful place of insignificance.
The highest respect to Patrick and his family for what they're going through.
Hard to read
Such a legend
On the rare occasions Patrick has spoken or stepped into the spotlight, I've often been moved. A fantastic cultivator of words to convey just what he may be feeling. Funny, witty, honest and sadly much too critical of his efforts. Whether successful or not, you can't help but admire people who try, people who put their head above the parapet (especially before Barnsley brutality, unwitting or not) and people who give the best of themselves.
Sadly, in this instance I don't have the words, or the words I do have just wouldn't do justice to the incredibly powerful, honest, humbling words that he's shared in those notes.
However it ends, whenever it ends, all I can say is thank you Patrick.
Have pride. You deserve it.
WOW. Very moving, I think this has already been suggested on Tykes Talk but let's get the place buzzing on Saturday evening and show Patrick he really is one of our own in the 65th minute
Not sure what to say other than a huge thank you to Patrick for all he has done for us and to wish him all the best in his fight.
Goodness. I arrived at the ground on Saturday at a similar time to Mr Cryne and it was good to see that he and his family were there. I wasn't close enough to talk to him but I would always say you've done your best with BFC.
I think we should try every single home match this season to sing to Patrick on the 65th minute and, if it's dark enough, to light lights on phones. It was something special when we did that when his flag was first unveiled and I really want us to show continued support and love to him whilst he is still with us to appreciate it, rather than something when it is sadly too late.
It's a privilege to support the same team as the great man.He will forever live on in our hearts and minds for as long as there's a Barnsley fc.YOU REDS
It is indeed truly heartbreaking. That really must have been incredibly difficult to write. A true Barnsley legend.
Agree , time to light up the stadium again in love and support for Mr Cryne.
I have no words to say how really moved I was reading those words.
God bless you Patrick.
The opening words 'I am living on borrowed time' are very very sobering. I'm do not know what type of C that Mr Cryne has, and I don't really want to know, but here's hoping, almost against hope, that just like a certain Wilko Johnson, Mr Cryne can defy the odds. I'm sure that all of us are wishing just that.
I've had my differences with Patrick Cryne.
I've not agreed with some of the things he's done.
But - whenever anyone writes about the history of Barnsley Football Club the name of Patrick Cryne will be forever fondly remembered.
