    A life-like bronze Silva would be great. Unfortunately, most of the statues of famous footballers I’ve seen look nothing like the subject they’re supposed to be representing.

    On the gas works build a replica of St Peters Plaza in the vatican with bars and restaruants instead of churches with statues of city greats throughout our history on the top

    Oh yes, sorry! That one must have slipped my mind for some reason.

    You’re so posh these days you won’t even do it yourself!

    Now, about honouring David: I have been advocating for a statue for him for sometime.

    Lately, I have had this silly idea that the club should look at the celebrations right after the 93:20 moment from the regular broadcast camera angle, and take a snapshot at the moment Kun is swinging his shirt in the air and running down touch. They should then note the relative positions and celebration postures of David, Vinny, and Joe (David running arms in the air above him, Vinny doing his low clinched fist stride with intense mouth-gapping scream, Joe trying to achieve sufficient lift to take off in to the sky on the other side of the pitch). They would then commission slightly oversized (perhaps 1.5x) statues of all four of them in those celebrations with the statues spaced apart in their relative positions to Kun at that moment, so you could walk through one of the greatest moments in our club’s history, honouring some of the best players ever to grace it. They could have it between the stadium and the store (likely to the right of where they put up the stage for City Square, as you are looking at the stadium) so nearly everyone, lifelong supporter and tourist alike, walked through it at some point.

    As I said, a bit silly, and will most certainly not be what the club decide to do, but it is what’s been stuck in my mind as of late (god knows the missus has heard me describe to other blues enough times that some might think it already exists).

    That song is about Salford, not exactly blue territory!

    Prefer this by McCall and though closed in the 60s the ground was a coal mine after all
