Praying for some good news, players and fans alike crying in the stands.
This/that looked horrible.
I flipped it on a few minutes ago. Announcers didn't say anything. I thought it was a seizure at first.
Me too, it looked like he was convulsing before they turned the camera away. Then the announcers said something about resuscitation and a cardiac situation, which sounds dire. I hope that isn't the case and there is no way they could have known that I suppose unless the actually saw them trying to resuscitate him.
Turned it on after it happened. To see the entire crowd just completely silent was chilling. Hope he makes it through this.
Yeah I flipped it on right after it happened. Does not look good.
chilling stuff reading the play by play
awful awful situation
I'm pretty sure this guy unfortunately probably isn't going to make it after reading that. It's insane how a person that young, with that type of physical fitness can collapse like that.
:( Pray for Muamba. He is a good Arsenal lad.
BBC reporting he is fighting for his life....damn
Unbelievable. I hope the commentators were wrong (saying how it looked like he wasn't going to make it) and he pulls through. I wasn't watching (studying), so I have no way of knowing how bad it looked.

Reports surfacing that paramedics were able to get Muamba breathing again on the way to the hospital. #PrayForMuamba
They didn't really show it. The first glimpse showed what almost looked like convulsing and after that they kept the cameras off. The reaction of the fans/players and the fact he was being resuscitated on the field is what made it look so bad.
I hope he pulls through, they were trying to revive him for quite a while though, doesn't look good
I keep updating The Guardian page and nothing so far
7.30pm It's now an hour since Muamba was taken to hospital in an ambulance. That was the last update

I hope that tweet ChileanNole posted ends up being correct. The longer this goes without good news the worse it could be though. They would probably try and let the team/public know if he has started to pull out of it but if things went the other direction they would have to notify his family before releasing any information.
Yeah me too, I hope I'm wrong about no news being bad news.
having to resuscitate for 35 minutes does not seem good.
The Guardian is ending their blog updates
Thats terrible. Praying for him.
Stable condition. Awesome news.
That's great to hear!
really astounding that he came back after having to have CPR for 35 minutes
Bolton released a statement saying he's "critically ill" at the heart attack center. Not sure what that means but the first stage is always the most dire.
Buddy suffered the widowmaker when he was 23, made it out though after a lot of people were saying he was very likely gonna die.
Hope he comes through this.
As an asthmatic this shit really scares me. Never know when the game you love might do you in.
So how many minutes of extra time?
Great news that he's stable. Is he married? I know he has a kid.
Damn, that makes me hate Real a whole lot less. Pretty awesome on their part.
classy move by real
Bolton announce that Fabrice Muamba heart is now beating without the help of medication and he's also moving his arms and his legs.
Yeah I'm almost positive he's married. Never knew how hard his life was back in Africa, shit is sad.
He has a 3 year old son and is engaged (as of Valentine's Day).
Djourou went to see him today - the sign of him should make any midfielder feel much better
get better Fabrice!
I think it was Steve Nash that tweeted something to the effect of Real Madrid wearing Abidal shirts and all of soccer wishing for Muamba's recovery is why it's called the beautiful game.
Quote from Milan message board following live match vs Juve that is about to go into ET
seedorf is the man he played all 120 with ease
He's in stable condition in a KFC in Milano

RT @RobHarrisUK: Doc reveals Muamba's heart stopped for 78 mins & was "effectively dead".
Henry flew from Salt Lake after his game to NY to London to see Muamba.
Should be some cool gestures today for him during the EPL games.
Picture of Arsenal 04/05 team with Cesc, Bendtner, Muamba, and Djourou. Won't let me embed.

"Two hours after [regaining consciousness] I whispered in his ear, 'What's your name?' and he said, 'Fabrice Muamba'. I said 'I hear you're a really good footballer' and he said 'I try'. I had a tear in my eye."
The consultant added: "We don't want to get ahead of ourselves but as things stand his life is not in danger at this time. It is early days so it is not possible to say [if he'll play again]."
So this is what could have happened if the game took place in India, D. Venkatesh died of cardiac arrest during a soccer match. No ambulance at the stadium, had to be taken in a 3 wheeled auto-rickshaw.
God watching Sportscenter try to cover soccer can be funny sometimes. They just reported on Fabrice Muamba getting out of the hospital and had his face in front of a Birmingham City icon instead of Bolton. I can't believe they actually showed Arsenal vs. Wigan highlights either, they fucked a couple things up there as well.
Muamba made his retirement official today.
