Fabrice Muamba

Has just collapsed on the pitch with nobody near him. In the recovery position but remains unconscious. I am still numb after Marc Vivien Foe and fear this could be another tragedy.

Spurs fans were in tears as were both sets of players.

I am praying for Muamba right now.

Oh god this is horrible, prayers are with him.

The reaction from the fans and players showed just how serious it was, I've been reading the BBC's text and it's just so devastating.

Come on, pull through, this can't happen, got tears in my eyes :( the players and fans in tears too :( I feel sick

Prayers are with him and his family. Thankfully ESPN realised how serious it was and pulled the cameras away fast, the rest of the programme was shambolic, John Champion talking about other players who have died on the pitch etc, amateurish.

Yeah it was unbelievable what Champion was saying, he more or less killed him off, at least John Barnes to his credit pointed out that numerous players have survived similar situations.

Fingers crossed Muamba pulls through.

Source of the news that he was breathing in the ambulance going around Twitter traces back to a random 17 year old sadly. Hopefully it's true but it's not info from a reliable source.

Well put it this way mate, if the 17 year old lad is messing about, he's in for some serious abuse.

I wouldn't assume malice, more likely (if it turns out to be false) he was just repeating a rumour he'd heard. It's the journalists who spread something a random kid said without trying to verify it who would deserve the criticism.

Good point mate.

I'm starting to hope now, that perhaps no news is good news?

CPR and resuscitation can go on for a long time. Usually it's 20 minutes of medical equipment confirming no signs of life but I've been reading reports that up to 90 minutes isn't that unusual.

The medics got to him far sooner than would happen in almost all typical examples of stuff like this happening which boosts his chances. Until there's some solid news though, it's impossible to know.

Absolutely awful news, especially for it to happen to a player as young and talented as Muamba. Goes without saying that I hope that he is fine and ideally is back playing (which I can only assume he loves doing) as soon as possible. We can also be thankful that he works for an institution as rich as a top flight football club and will therefore have access to the best medical care available, which in theory gives him as good a chance as is possible.
