Yeah something along those lines. My thinking about the seats taken away next to it, so there would be room to put up a plaque, or a picture of him next to his seat or something similar.

If the guy had a regular seat just do a statue of him sat in that seat in that location*, fairly understated but he can watch the team for eternity (not sure if that's a good thing or not).

* Sure seen similar to this somewhere in a pub where a guy had always sat.

Forgive me if I'm wrong but was he the tall bloke who looked like a haphazard Dr.who?


There's a pic here.......

Yeah I have seen this as well, that's also a great idea, you can then have his famous scarf wrapped around him perhaps.

West Ham have VIP personalised seats as way of getting money out of their richer fans.



Could just get one like that and have it a different colour like white amongst the red so it stands out with a message to go with it.

I never realised this was him, he had the season ticket next to my dads in the old North Stand (obviously the Arkells now) back in the 70s and 80s, lovely chap.

Interestingly, today marks the 12th anniversary of my dads ashes being intered 4 foot down under the Town End goal frame.

Fully understand and appreciate what youíre saying but still doesnít feel big enough to me.

Ok, itís not exactly whatís happening but in essence heís paying for the purchase of the CG. I would absolutely say he deserves to have the whole stadium named after him.

Or at the very least the Stratton Bank

Much more lifelike than the statue we had of Kerry Mucklow at the County Ground a couple of seasons ago !!, but seriously think this is a brilliant idea, no more than he deserves.  As already said thereís probably a few people who knew him by sight but not by name.  It would give him the recognition he deserves.

Yeah I recognise him as well, as is the way for a lot of fans over the years you see a lot.

We must have allowed people to have their names on seats previously as there is one in the DRS which I pass on the way to my seat which has the name Ian Pi Chen (I think) on it, whoever he is!
