That's sad for him, but on the plus side at least it's at this stage in his career and he didn't get affected by it. He'll be 33 next week and his career was winding down, at least he's earned a good amount and now knows his problems.

I also have atrial fibrillation and never know when it is going to happen.
It means that the blood is being pumped around your body at such a fast rate, that it cannot collect oxygen from the lungs and deliver it to the brain, which means a stroke can happen because the brain is being starved of oxygen.

I hope that good luck plays a big part in Leon's future.

Don't know if this has been posted elsewhere.

But Baggies Cap number 864 went to our former keeper Luke Daniels on Monday night.

(one PL appearance away to Everton when he came on as sub' for Ben Foster in 2013)

Didn't realise at the time but he was on the bench for Brentford.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.
