Are there any plans to have a minutes silence before the game - might actually be any idea to make specific reference to those named above - also maybe tie in with QOS and get their list - if not too big - of players involved in the 1st world war and read it out before the minutes silence.

Although I am guessing there may be something marking the passing of Johnny Graham as well.
