Shocking news just coming through of the awful news about Petrov’s illness.
This is clearly a serious issue for him and his family and will deeply affect the club and all supporters.
I wish to add my name to all the best wishes for Stiliyan and any protests should now be called off and I am sure they will.
(EDIT – Mcleish_out has said protest is off and rightly so)
All the thoughts for tomorrow should be with Stiliyan and his family.
On a personal side I met Stan in 2006. I was doing a bike ride for the Bliss charity and Villa very kindly allowed me to meet him after the Bolton game to draw some raffle tickets. Total gentleman, no airs or graces about him, about a normal bloke you will ever meet in football.
I am sure this illness has greatly affected the whole club and I am personally very sad at this news and tomorrow we should make sure wherever he is he hears his name being sung out.
