Hardcore Real Madrid and Oasis fan, emblematic Tweeter @Van_Palomaain passed away in the train accident outside Santiago de Compostela. He was known and loved by many madridistas, most of them are sporting a Live Forever Union Jack as their avatars right now.
I didn't know him in person, but why would that even matter? I knew his favorite song, his favorite Real Madrid player and I even knew that he liked to order Chinese food for supper every Sunday. So I probably knew him better than I know some people around my circle.
Álvaro Arbeloa, showing that there are bigger and more important things than a dribble or a goal scored, joined the community and showed his support on Twitter:
Y desde aquí, mi recuerdo a @van_Palomaain. Siempre estarás con nosotros. Un abrazo enorme a los allegados d Juanan. Descansa en paz, amigo.— Álvaro Arbeloa (@aarbeloa17) July 25, 2013
Juan Antonio Palomino will always be missed. And when Real Madrid raise La Décima and Noel and Liam Gallagher forget their disputes to play another live concert, he will be with us.
Rest In Peace, my friend.
