"When I saw the news about Bradley yesterday I was moved to tears. Such a young and beautiful boy. This page has been campaigning for 5th minute applause and singing his name. I'm a parent myself and hope that Bradley's family will take some comfort that we are all thinking of them. Football rivalry doesn't even come into it."
