Nitesh: Respect to Tottenham fans and Howard Webb for cheering life above football

Posted on March 19, 2012 by Nitesh

The footballing world was shocked by the sudden collapse of Fabrice Muamba on Saturday in an FA Cup match against Tottenham at White Hart Lane. According to Sky Sports, Fabrice Muamba’s heart is now beating without medication and his arms & legs have shown movement.

But all this rather brings things into perspective. Absolutely nothing is above life, and even football has to take a backseat at times. Sure, football is the dream for some people, but sometimes these dreams have got to be put on the backburner for more important things to happen. And these more important things include your life and your family.

At this point of time, I do really want to draw attention to Howard Webb and the Tottenham fans. Say what you will about the English ref, you have to admit that he conducted the situation remarkably and performed his duties well. He consulted both the managers on the touchline and led the players off when it was apparent that the game couldn’t continue. A great display by the referee, and I applaud him for the same.

Muamba is a former Arsenal player, coming through the Academy before joining Birmingham City and then Bolton. So it was a heartening gesture by the Tottenham fans to sing his name as he was down on the pitch, and give him a standing ovation as he was being carried off. This is football, the beautiful game. Life should be the first priority for anyone, and for a young man all of 23 years to be struck down like this really doesn’t sound fair. May the whole world’s wishes spur him onto the path to recovery, and that he returns to do what he loves.

Sorry for not having come back with an article on Arsenal today. But life really is the most important thing, and I just wanted to emphasize on that.
Ciao :)
