Hiya. I took this pic on my tour of the Mestalla last weekend. Many of you will know this true but sad tale but for those who don't.
The statue you can see in one of the seats is of a Valencia fan of more than 70 years standing who started to lose his sight in his 50's. Despite this handicap, he still never missed a game at the Mestalla until he passed away last year. As a tribute to this man, Valencia Football Club retired his seat and had this statue made so he'd still be at every home game.
It's there tribute to all their fans who are no longer with us.
I think it's a very touching and moving tribute from a football club to its passed away fans and it got me wondering - especially with Memorial Day on the horizon - if we could do something similar at Edgeley Park?
