Oh look, People arguing again, this time on a story about a great player who died. D*ckheads. RIP Marc. Tragic story still fresh in my mind.
Dantis I agree with you, but when you're accusing someone of being 'uneducated' I'd try spelling it correctly first !
"A decade on, football will remember a fine player who grew up in poverty in Africa and went on to play in some of the biggest leagues in Europe."Foe NEVER grew up in poverty, you should carry out enough research before making such sensitive statements! FYI, NOT everyone in Africa is POOR!
@77I feel sorry for you, you make presumptions based on your own inadequacies. You have absolutely no idea whether any players helped financially and you have no idea which footballers give money to charity.Don't make sweeping, inaccurate statements, it just makes you look unaducated.
@77. Chris M.I don't know how many players put hands in pocket to look after Foe's kids. I don't know how much money Henry donates to charity. Do you know either? No, you don't.Henry's not allowed to be upset on camera, as you've decided that he doesn't do enough for charity? In reality, you have absolutely zero idea what you're talking about. Your presumptions are embarrassing.
I remember this like it was yesterday, amazing to think it was 10 years ago. So tragic, and such a great footballer. A great person also by the sound of things.RIP Marco.
How many of all the footballers showing their grief actually did something positive and put their hands in their pockets to fund a decent upbringing for his kids. Henry crying on the pitch - save your tears for the camera and put your hand in your pocket. Reminds me of all the people who go trekking up Machu Picu for 'charity'. It's not for charity but to indulge their ego's.
I watched that game with a load of my Class mates on the Ferry Back from a school trip in France aged 12 we knew the situation was serious but not life threatening.One thing that did change was TV Coverage. British Eurosport who broadcast the game basically fixated on the clasped player. 9 years Later ESPN did not make the same mistake with Muamba
Sadly missed and a terrific player....
I was at Glastonbury the day Foe died, when the news broke the people we were with were just standing around in shock, which surely indicates the measure of a man, his demise sent repercussions beyond the world of football.As for #29, you should be ashamed of yourself, I'm sure there are many Geordies who are ashamed of your assinine comment, maybe you should read before you comment.
@72. You mean at 54 not 654 i hope.
