    this is just a thought/suggestion. A great bunch of our own went to his grave and did a fantastic job in cleaning/renovating it this week. This shows a true dedication. Now you may call me as daft as you want but I was wondering if a song/chant could be sorted out. Nothing too complicated but something that would be ours uniquely. It would not even matter if any other clubs got it or what... but it would be ours, and more than that it would /could be an eternal tribute to the Rev for eternity. For me I am thinking of nothing complicated , like the ICELANDICS did in the EURO's something that says this is Barnsley.... and yet to those in the know this is our history too.. maybe the 'Barnsley Bard' could help out here a little. I also think that at least a Bronze bust could be commissioned and put into a niche in the wall of the 'Ponty' of the Rev T. Preedy. The man has given me and countless other Barnsley lads & lasses a totally fantastic roller coaster of emotions and pride with his creation of what is now Barnsley Football club... I for one would donate/subscribe to a monument to his memory other than his lonely grave a long away from Oakwell.

    Not sure about a chant, but a monument near the ground needs sorting.

    Is it the sort of thing Graham Ibbeson could do? I've no idea what it'd cost, but would be a nice touch to commission a Barnsley man to make a fitting tribute to the man who made Barnsley.

    Graham Ibbeson usually charges in excess of £100,000. And rightly so as a piece may take two years and a whole load of bronze to boot. Now...John Stones' money, fan petition, crowd fund? Who knows

    Say the cost would be 100K - would Patrick stump up half of we the fans came up with the rest? I know I'd be more than happy to chuck £20 or so in, would only need 2500 other donations to get 50K.

    Like Celtics version for their founder? I think the Tommy Taylor and Dickie Bird statues were 80k & 100k.

    Re: would it have to be bronze

    I'm o expert but I assume that if it's going to be a statue it would have to be bronze. Marble pedestal or monument of some sort is possible but how would you carve marble into a statue?

    dunno

    I just thought they used marble in the Roman times for statues and they seem to have lasted quite well...or is it alabaster ??

    To be fair its always puzzled me long before sponsors deals why the new stand wasn't named the Tiverton Preedy stand. Whats point in calling it just the east stand ?

    It wouldn't hurt the players to put in 5% of there wages 1 week to fund a bronze. What we talking £30000 ?
