Fabrice Muamba collapse - changed the feel of football?

From today's game BBC report I get the impression the young player's unfortunate heart attack has had a positive effect on the game. I hope he soon recovers and is able to resume his place in the Bolton team.

Fans are fickle - next week they could be howling for the blood of an opposition player if he so much as touches one of their players.

Two weeks ago the referee at my local teams match was stung by a bee while refereeing a match, he went into severe analyptic shock and collapsed in the middle of the pitch. He was treated by our coach while waiting for the ambulance and was rushed into hospital and was kept in for the rest of the day and the next day. Our players managed to play (badly as usual) the next match with no thought of cancelling.

I'm surprised that someone old enough to referee a football match didn't have any previous experience of anaphylactic shock, and didn't have an epinephrine pen with him. It's unusual to reach adulthood without knowing that you suffer from Anaphylaxis.

I attended a league 2 match on Tuesday night. Prior to kick-off there was a minutes applause for Muamba. At this stage it was common knowledge that he was out of danger and whilst a long long road to recovery, he was responding well. Whilst both sets of fans observed the minutes applause I wasn't actually sure what I was applauding.

"had a positive effect on the game"

It would appear not, in Scotland anyway.

17 arrests and three sent off, including the manager, at Ibrox.

All of the Old Firm fans were happy, today...over 50,000 - minus a coupla dozen.

Rangers delayed Celtic from winning the Scottish League today...so happy 'Gers fans

&

Celtic fans were quite buoyed up, happy in knowing that Rangers Football Club might not even exist, come July.

And, the sun shined for both teams today!
