Muamba collapsed just before half time in the FA Cup Quarterfinal against Tottenham. The game has been abandoned and there is no word on his condition. Medics spent 10 minutes trying to resuscitate him on the pitch and word is they were unsuccessful.

I was watching the game online and the camera panned away very quickly to show supporters of both clubs crying. White Hart Lane was silent.

Breaking news:

Fabrice is reported to be in stable condition. I was sure that he was dead. Absolutely amazed and delighted that he survived. [LEFT]

My thoughts go out to him. Always horrible to see somebody suffer but especially so young and fit like footballers are its horrible. We had a kid have a heart attack on the pitch when I was 15, absolutely horrible.
