PUERTA!!!!!!!,so young...energitic n full a life but so unfortunate that his call came at a tym he was serving,not only in his profession,but his obligation as a professional club player .As his fan,in particular,and sevilla in general,his absentia,will dearly be felt.And as a solidarity to him,fo wat he accomplished and wat he was gone to,i request the sevilla B.O.Ds to formally deem the date a TRIBUTE day for the fallen Hero.I man heatrtfelt condoloscence fi di famili in particula and the spanish society in general.GONE BUT SHALL NOT BE FORGOTTEN.....R.I.P COMRADE PUERTA.

R.I.P mate.... Horrible to see a young talented guy's life cut short like that, I never had the privilidge of watching you mate, but you sounded like you'd have been great at Arsenal one day my freind, I believe Arsene really liked you, and if he likes someone, we all do.... R.I.P Antonio from the Emirates stadium... Jason
