Sad to hear that he is in the RD&E after a drunken fall.
He used to live in Pinhoe Road and recently moved to sheltered accommodation in St Thomas.
Hop he recovers. Alcoholism is a nasty condition.

Such a great defender in his time, I hope he recovers from this and really takes any help that is offered for his obvious demons.

Sadly the Arsenal dressing room back in it's day seems to have been a cesspit of addictions. I am sure it happened at many clubs, we can certainly cite examples here at City, but perhaps the Gunners stand out because of the sheer number of very high profile cases, Adam's, Merson etc. Young men on high wages with plenty of free time on their hands. One can only hope that with greater emphasis on diet and health these days that the numbers will diminish, but I don't think that you will ever completely eradicate the problems.

In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
Does anyone have any information on Kenny after the above mentioned fall ?
His Twitter page has not been updated since the above post.
Photo below of happier times when Kenny came along for the fun day at SJP.
