Kept asking me when I was going to visit him in Manchester, just never got around to it. Big man, full of life. Never forget him. RIP Andy.
Andy used to terrorise our old boss with Ogrish after he fucked around so much the boss made him sit with his back to him so he could see his screen and make sure he was working. He'd also leave copies of some dodgy magazine laying around (name escapes me) but it was always full of weird shit on the cover.
Didn't give a shit, and I know for a fact el boss was scared of him lol. But who wouldn't be. That said he was a lot smaller over the last couple of years. 10 years ago he was a fucking beast. Mostly muscle too.
Czech was one of the few, when folks from the Tribe began invading Asylum chat, to be welcoming - in a verbally intimidating way, of course. I chatted with him often, and missed him when he stopped showing up there, then pretty much left the forum. He told me a funny story about an encounter with Jason Statham once, after explaining who that was.
Last time I saw Andy was in London, just off Leicester Sq. Office was based there at the time, left work late and I see this bloke biting into a sandwich and he lifts his hand up and points in my direction, mouth full of panini screaming 'Nick!'.
Went to a bar and caught up. Pretty sure he had a bag with him with CS gas canisters in it. Or maybe I'm getting confused with another of Andy's misadventures.
Trying to desperately remember the conversations that evening. I wasn't as close to Andy as some of the other limeys, but really felt he was spilling his heart out that night. Troubled soul.
