In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

So very, very distressing to see and to contemplate...

This morning on BBC Radio 5 live during Victoria Derbyshire's program, Bolton Wanders captain Kevin Davies said that any discussion of the team's competing in future FA Cup matches while teammate Fabrice Muamba clings to life, were completely irrelevant.

The latest report this morning from London Chest Hospital was that Fabrice Muamba is stable but remains critically ill. http://www.bwfc.co.uk/page/General/0,,1004~2664324,00.html

Saturday's game against Blackburn Rovers may be abandoned, and Tuesday's match against Aston Villa has already been postponed thru mutual agreement.

Wanders officials encourage fans around the world wanting to send support and encouragment to forfabrice@bwfc.co.uk or Tweeting the club's official account @OfficialBWFC.
