'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Thank You, FA

The FA have come to their senses and acted appropriately: they decided to hold a minute's silence in honour of the victims of Munich.

Initially they rejected the idea of officially commemorating the disaster, because of fears that some of the less intelligent members of the mass who watch England could not behave themselves. But they changed their mind it seems.

'We will be having a minute's silence in respect of Munich at the England v Switzerland game,' FA's communications director Adrian Bevington said.

'We believe very strongly that this should be and will be respected and that there's a feeling across the whole country that a minute's silence is the best and most appropriate way to remember everybody who lost their lives in the tragedy.'

The players will be wearing black armbands and films of the Busby Babes will be shown on the giant screens.

I'm happy and I'd like to thank the FA. It would have been a disgrace not to honour these great footballers, especially as probably the most talented English player of all time was among the victims. For once, the association got it right.

Whoever disrespects the minute's silence is a moron, and deserves a lifetime ban!

Agreed - let's hope that everyone has the intelligence and respect to behave appropriately. Anything less would be an absolute disgrace.
