Fabrice Muambe(Bolton W) - all Spurs supporters wish him a speedy recovery
The thoughts of the football world are with Fabrice Muamba and his family as the Bolton player fights for his life in a London hospital.  The coming days are critical for the twenty three year old who collapsed after forty one minutes of the game at White Hart Lane.  The medical staff immediately rushed onto the pitch to work with him and try to revive him.  Players and spectators from both sides were visibly upset by the events that occurred at White Hart Lane.  After treating him on the pitch for six minutes, Fabrice was carried of to a waiting ambulance as both sets of fans chanted his name.

In the match which will now be expunged from the record books, Bolton took the lead after fsix minutes from a corner, the ball deflecting off Gareth Bale's shoulder and into the net.  Spurs threatened and within five minutes were level as Bale's cross to the back post was headed in powerfully by Kyle Walker.

Referee, Howard Webb, abandoned the game having consulted with both managers and players.  A possible date for the match to be played is Tuesday or Wednesday 27th or 28th March, the dates set aside for replays.

All Tottenham fans pray that the news about Fabrice Muamba in the coming days will be positive and that he will make a full and speedy recovery.
