Was listening to that game on the radio in the car at the time. A sobering experience.

Fingers crossed for Fab.

If he survives he's never going to play footy again.

You can't know that, it depends on what the cause of the heart attack was and how much damage it did.

My guess is he won't be allowed to put it under that much stress in a professional context ever again.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

A great day for my team, I'm just back from Hampden Park where I watched Kilmarnock beat Celtic 1-0 to win the Scottish League Cup for the first time in our 143 year history!
It is Killie's first trophy since our Scottish Cup win 15 years ago, and it is the first time we have beaten Celtic in a cup final!

As always against the Old Firm, you need to be at your best and carry a lot of luck to beat them, and thats what happened. They missed a few sitters, and Cammy Bell, our keeper, pulled off some wonder-saves. But with 5 mins left, we took our chance, scored a goal and held on until time!

Brilliant day, in over 25 years of following Killie that is the second cup I've seen us win, and only my fourth final. However, my dad is lucky enough to have seen us win the League Title in the 60's, the Cup in the 90's, and now finally the League Cup in the 21st century!

PS- Like all football fans, I was completely stunned when Fabrice Muamba collapsed during Bolton's cup tie with Spurs, thoughts are with him, and hope the boy pulls through and makes a full recovery.

Best wishes to Fabrice Muamba.

Obviously never play professional football again after such a horrific episode though unfortunately.

Apparently Kilmarnock is still partying. I expect an awful lot of people won't be making it to work today.

What's happened to Muamba ias really shocking, sounds like he's still not out of the woods but I hope he makes it.

Well done to Kilmarnock for winning the cup though, love things like that. You must be well chuffed BRG

Indeed, our young midfielder Liam Kelly, his dad Jack suffered a heart attack at full time at Hampden, and sadly passed away shortly afterwards in hospital. Life can be unbelievably cruel at times, the boy went from one of the greatest moments of his life to the absolute worst in the space of a heartbeat.

And many thanks to all for your congratulations.
As any fan who supports a lesser team will know, days like these happen only a few times in your life.
I know the Scottish League Cup is hardly the greatest trophy in the world, but watching my team finally win it against the best team in Scotland means as much to me as a Champions League victory will mean to a United or Liverpool fan. I will cherish the triumph until the end of my days!

Muamba now speaking a few words, recognizes family and moving arms and legs around a little.

Still not out of the woods, but improvement at least.

Nice of Forest to give pretty much every football fan in the country 7 reasons to smile last night

Leeds 3-7 Forest. Comical.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

The consultant who worked on Fabrice said he was effectively dead for an hour. On Beeb news tonight. The fact he's responding to questions and recognises his family is nothing short of a miracle. The consultant also said that short of your heart stopping in hospital, a cup final is about the second best place to do it, since the place was knee deep in medics.

Edited to add: There was a consultant cardiologist watching the match. He spotted they were giving Muamba cpr so he asked his brother if he thought he should go down. The upshot was they spoke to a steward they knew to get him on the pitch and the cardiologist basically saved Muamba's life and then accompanied him to hospital. He said he spoke to him briefly and said "I hear you're a footballer" and Muamba said "I try", whereupon the cardiologist started blubbing.
