Help needed,this weekend April 9th will be 21 years since Paul died in walsall.
Therefore I was hoping someone on here might know the the stadium announcer with the idea of a minutes applause in the 21st minute as a mark of respect.
Any fans who could help achieve this i.e H.F.or make Steve Parish aware of this would be greatly appreciated.
P.S Im in Walsall this weekend.

Surely this would be for the family to request - if they wanted to.

I agree we should remember Paul Nixon but any public memorial should be under his family's control. Have they asked for anything like this?

Point taken,but no offence intended.
Just a reminder of one of our own who lost his life.

Also I refrained from any abuse or troublemaking in my post on here and bbs yet now find it removed.
Why?
I thought this was a democratic country appears not,nice to know the stasi are active !!

It would a be a nice gesture for everyone to undertake a minutes Applause between the 21St and 22nd minute as this supporters life was tragically and needlessly taken away.

Is there symbolism in the 21? Why would this be the year to do something?

What happened just makes me seethe, and the way the Mancs just shrugged it off even more so. C*ntona can never be forgiven for creating the atmosphere that contributed to this happening.

Paul was 35 when he died. I get that 10 years, 20 years or 25 years would be suitable anniversaries to do something special, just can't figure out what makes 21 the year to do it.

I'm sure you didn't mean any offence, but my view is anything like this would have to come from Nixon's family. Yes he was a Palace fan, and what happened to him was appalling, but it's for them to ask for any memorial or gesture like you suggest.

As for why your post was removed from the BBS, it's nothing to do with democracy (although why you're asking us I don't know - perhaps asking the BBS mods might be a better idea). Websites and messageboards like the BBS and HOL are run by individuals who have the right to remove any post they deem inappropriate for whatever reason. It's all there in the small print when you choose to sign up. Hardly East Germany under the Stasi is it?

I was at the first semi final and,like most Palace fans,boycotted the replay because the f.a.refused to reschedule it as a mark of respect for Paul. But can we please stop this minutes "applause" thing that has suddenly become omnipresent at every game.It just demeans the whole idea of respect.

With respect, it needs to be respectfully laid to rest. We don't need it to remind people of a rivalry.

If you really want to honour him, get in touch with his family, find a charity of their choice and donate, behind closed doors.

Otherwise - people will use it as a band wagon for a rivalry.

 


This was once a quality forum....

They do an applause to negate anyone not respecting the silence.
