Email For Lua, Wednesday, Help!

An email to the Premier League will be sent on Wednesday. Thanks to everyone who has sent me their message but we need more...

Lua Lua has been told he cannot where his son`s initials on the back of his shirt next season. The premier league has refused this request;

'I am gutted.This season is for Jesus and I thought it would be a nice way of helping his memory live on.

'I asked the club to contact the Premier League.

'The secretary came back and told me they would not allow me to have my son`s initial on the back of my shirt.

'I could not believe it. I did not want his whole name on the shirt — just his initial and I do not
see what harm that would do.

'I am still struggling to come to terms with losing Jesus and have not even been able to bring myself to visit his grave.

'My family keep on telling me I should throw all his toys away but I cannot do it.'

I have an email address of someone high up at the Premier League, after I did some work for them. Send me your emails pleading with them to allow Lua Lua to wear his sons initials on the back of his shirt and I will send them to the Premier League.

If they do it for Lua Lua, they will get others asking maybe on a different theme. They won't grant it. It will set a precident.

Have you thought of maybe contacting the people at the Football League Club Vital members to see if they will ask their members on their forums to email you?

The premier league have said no, and if you read the rest of the article he says he's gonna get his boys name stitched into his boots. So no problem. He's got his wish to bring his sons name onto the pitch.

Just let the guy have it on his shirt!!! Do the premierleague show no sympathy??? He's just lost his son and they say no!!! I could understand them saying no if he'd asked for all the members of the premierleague to wear his sons initials on their shirts, but seriously i cant believe the premierleague gave him the cold shoulder!!! Disgusting! As a arsenal supporter i urge everyone to complain!!!

He hasn't JUST lost his son, it was 8 months ago. I've a great deal of sympathy for the bloke over this issue, but he's gonna have it stitched into his boots. So what's the problem?

its hardly asking a lot to have it stitched into his shirt is it? whats the problem with the premier league? he should just do it and wait for the consequences. the bad press that will come the way of the premier league will mean they will have to step down.

Pompey MotM at Exeter...EFL Trophy at Yeovil

The Pompey MotM from the 1-0 win at Exeter, which was (in my mind) a pretty dour game (the main thing is we won though), was a tough call to make but I'll go along with the top two.
