Please sign this petition, and be sensible. This is a serious matter and I would like to think that football fans aren't brainless enough to ruin something that is done with good intentions.

Not good news. It's always sad when anyone dies, particularly at such a young age, and then when it's a well known footballer it grips us all in unity. All divides, and rivalry fades into the background and common appreciation and sensitivity takes over. Hope all goes well and the family go forward with fond memories.
