Fabrice Muamba has been released from hospital, barely a month after he collapsed on the pitch during Bolton’s FA Cup tie vs. Spurs. The midfielder was “technically dead” for 78 minutes after suffering a cardiac arrest and thanked medical staff for the prompt action that aided his recovery. “Their dedication, professionalism and expertise is simply amazing and I will forever be in their debt.” he said.
He also thanked the thousands of well wishers who had contacted him via Twitter.
If only all news could be this good, Kickettes!

Or something like that.
- Pato’s main squeeze, Barbara Berlusconi, went red on her head.

On Saturday night, FC Koln’s Slawomir Peszko and Anderlecht’s Marcin Wasilewski partied the night away in Cologne, Germany. After last call, they got into a witty, drunken exchange with a taxi driver that ended with the pair being dropped off at the police station.
Is this news? Perhaps. The Polish national team’s coach, Franciszek Smuda, believes this is an al-key-hol scandal of ginormous proportions, after all.
Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba suddenly collapsed five minutes from halftime in today’s FA Cup match between Tottenham Hotspur and Bolton Wanderers. ESPN, who were covering the tie live on TV, reported that the 23-year-old midfielder had CPR while on the pitch at White Hart Lane, before adding how the player was not breathing during the 10 minutes medical staff tried resuscitating him with a defibrillator.
An outpour of supportive messages flooded social media in the moments that followed the scary and solemn scene, which culminated in Muamba, Bolton boss, Owen Coyle, and club captain, Kevin Davies, going to the hospital together in the same ambulance and the match being abandoned.

Are players getting a little big for their attractively coloured boots, Kickettes?
The reason we ask is that it’s becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the various examples of players asserting themselves at the expense of their clubs lately.
