Footballers could have lifesaver chips

FOOTBALL lawmakers will be asked next month to allow trials of an electronic chip in players’ shirts which could warn of medical problems such as the heart attack suffered by former Bolton Wanderers’ midfielder Fabrice Muamba.

The laws of the game currently ban any electronic communication between the players and staff in the technical area.

Now, the International FA Board (IFAB) has been asked to consider making an exception for chips inside the collar of a player’s shirt which can feed back data such as heart performance, body temperature and the distance being covered.

It is understood FIFA is wary about allowing the electronic chips, but Stewart Regan, chief executive of the Scottish FA, said it was a “no brainer” if there were medical benefits.

Muamba collapsed during an FA Cup tie at Tottenham in March last year. His heart stopped for 78 minutes before doctors saved him.

won't happen to me old chum; wrong colour, I don't kick a ball around, and I earn my living decently. Sorry I dragged you two from your love nest to respond, now go back to your little slum and continue your dirty habits. Couple of nut-cases if ever there were any.

Do you have any education at all shafter? Romania is quite a way from the Czech republic, and the only thing the Nazis ever got here was a kick up the jackboot!
My horses, bye the way, are with me here in Italy, but I don't think you know what I am talking about; they are large, four-legged animals, with teeth at one end and a photo of you at the other. Oh, and they are quite intelligent, which puts them a little way above you in the brain department.
Read today's BN and you will see, yet again, that it is full of theft, benefit fraud, suspicious car crashes in the wee small hours, drunks and fights in town, in other words, the usual rubbish Bolton people have a normal weekend again. And finally, why don't you just go away and play with yourself, you mindless little moron.

Blah blah blah....... so your horses are with you in Italia, so what you pretentious person. Are your goats and sheep there too? Must have been a remarkable sight you on the cart and the menagerie in tow crossing the Alps.
LOL
