    As harsh as the fans can be, it was a nice display.

    The silence, though, was terrifying even knowing the current situation.

    Be well, Fabrice, be well.

    Obviously, all of our thoughts are first and foremost with Mumaba and his family. I wish him a speed recovery.

    If and when this game is replayed, and we win, we'll be playing (who else?) Chelsea in the semi's.

    It will be replayed at some point. Has to be before the scheduled replays take place, I think.

    There is talk of them pulling out, but that would be just weird imo.

    They would avoid a certain unpleasantness of returning to the place where their teammate collapsed to the ground. But also I doubt Bolton wants to focus on anything right now other than avoiding relegation.

    A walkover would be fine with me.

    It would suck, as I would prefer to play the game, but I understand where they're coming from.

    In a way it's kind of understandable... they're are still in deep relegation trouble and that's the priority atm... probably want to avoid any extra fixtures at all costs. Besides, even (in the unlikely event) if they do beat Spurs, then it's a semifinal vs. Chelsea and then probably a final vs. Liverpool (or Sund or Everton). The likelihood of them winning all three fixtures vs. Spurs/Chelsea/Pool is very low, so they probably just figure it's best to play for PL survival....

    Well I am shocked like everyone else. It's a long way for him to recover. I wouldn't be surprise that BW will give this a pass and focus on avoiding relegation. But I would prefer that they fight on in the FA Cup and the league on behalf of Muamba and be spurred on to have great results. I rather if they keep the fight going and don't give up. It's the best time to pull the team together and consolidate a hard working ethic. What does Muamba want for the team to do? However it is not wrong not to continue. Either way, people will understand. They must overcome.

    :cool:
