I actually thought that was the last I was going to see of Birminghams efforts to get in the prem, but we're not dead yet, and what better team to get a 3 - 0 win out of than a fellow play off position team too. Fucking slowed Middlesborough down a tad.

Thoughts on Muamba's collapse? I'm still shocked.

Sincerely hope he pulls through. Terrible news.

Just read about that. Gone from the elation of beating the
Irish in the rugby and then read this.
Puts things into perspective.

It doesn't look good. Hope he pulls through. I do fear his playing
days maybe over. A shame as he was a good player for Bolton.

Thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.

What was the manner of his collapse:
Was it in a challenge or similar to what hapenned to Vivan Foe?

Edit: Just read that no one was near him.
Shit, that's bad :(

So much has been going on with the Muamba thing.

Firstly, he's now listed as critically ill but in a stable condition in Intensive Care.

Secondly, according to reports coming out of the hospital via Twitter etc, his heart stopped FOUR times.

Thirdly, it seems a fan jumped from the stands and ran to where the medics were trying to resuscitate Muamba. It's alright though, the guy was a fully trained cardiologist.

Finally, some twat of a university student started laughing at Muamba's condition and suddenly turned into the world's biggest racist, calling people niggers and wogs and telling people to go and rape their mothers (among many other things).
Well some people didn't like what they were reading so they reported him to the police. And Five Live where the kid received a clear warning from Stan Collymore himself ("Your sick tweets have been passed on to the Police") before suddenly backtracking and claiming his account had been hacked. His Twitter and Facebook accounts have now disappeared, presumably as he tries to hide his identity.
Far too late for that though, I'm afraid. Far too late.

Looks like he had a heart attack as he's in The Heart Attack Centre
at The London Chest Hospital.

Right. The guy who ran onto the pitch has Tweeted updates saying he didn't actually get to help Muamba himself, but he tried.

I'm not sure what is worse about this story. The fact that someone can be so insensitive at a human being, being in serious condition or the fact that Stan Collymore is now on 5 Live.

But seriously, I wasn't matching the match but it sounds really nasty. As you said, he seems to be both stable but critically ill. Which seem conflicting to me. The lack of news is worrying me a bit. If he was fine you would surely do your best to get that news out there in order to ease fears.

Stable but critically ill just means he's very unwell but no change. Not getting worse but not getting better either.

Worrying either way.
For me 'critically ill' is like teetering on the edge of a cliff:
you're either going one way or the other. Might be insesitive, but
that's what it means to me.

If he does survive, it would be a miracle if he ever steps onto a football
pitch again IMO. If his heart did stop 4 times, as reported but not confirmed,
I'd be worried about what the condition of his brain would be like having
been starved of blood and oxygen for that period of time.

Such a tragic accident.

Good. What a wanker. Thoroughly unpleasant little piece of shit and he's lucky (or not) to be bailed. It would have been so easy for the JPs to remand him in custody for his own protection.
