Former Celtic and Bristol City midfielder Evander Sno had to spend Saturday night in hospital after suffering his second on-pitch heart attack in the space of two years while playing for Dutch side NEC against Feyenoord.
25-year old Sno sank to his knees after half-an-hour having felt a shock in his chest, which it turns out was actually the internal defibrillator he had fitted after suffering his first attack (during an Ajax reserve game in 2010) going off as the result of a small heart wobble.

The Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey still believes that Arsene Wenger's team is not only good enough to beat Bayern Munich, but can still win the trophy. Before the Gunner's (weakened) team lost to Blackburn this weekend they had gone five games without a loss, including four wins, and Ramsey thinks this shows that they can beat anyone.
Relax Arsenal fans, it's not the biggest shock in transfer window history! The pictures above show Jack Wilshere as a young whipper-snapper taking a shine to the West Ham strip. Just to make us all feel old, we're pretty sure the likes of Paolo Di Canio trotted about in that very jersey edition. Although the [.

Who do you think will win the Premier League 2012/2013? [Poll] is a post from: Just Football
The new Barclays Premier League season 2012/2013 kicks off this weekend in
England. Champions Manchester City will look to defend their crown but there has been a lot of
transfer activity over the summer, with the market only really just kicking into gear now on the
back of some lucrative deals (including Robin van Persie's move to Manchester United).
After the news about Robin Van Persie, Arsenal fans are now bracing themselves for another shock as

Super Timmy Howard "Well, here's another fine mess you've gotten me into." -- Oliver Hardy The dust

I watch European football in the green glow of the television in the dark; alone, more often

Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam is being linked with a shock switch across town to Merseyside
According to the Mirror, Adam could be sold for as little as Â£5 million, as Liverpool plan to
bring in Real Madrid star Nuri Sahin on an initial season long loan.
Adam, who announced himself in the Premier League two years ago with Blackpool, has reportedly been
informed by new Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers that he is not a guaranteed started and that
increased competition in the squad may see his game time severely restricted.
When Rangers were relegated to the Third Division after their financial armageddon, two things

Manchester City have reportedly had their shock Â£13 million bid for defender Daniel Agger rejected

SomeÂ shockÂ news today from Alan Pardew is that four ofÂ Newcastle'sÂ players have sustained
injuries and they are Demba Ba, Cheick Tiote, Haris Vuckic And Shane Ferguson, so they will
certainly not be playing tomorrow night in Athens, and Shola Ameobi was not on the plane to Athens
thisÂ morning either, so heÂ willÂ also miss out.

Cristiano Ronaldo failed to celebrate his two goals against Granada on Sunday evening, and there
are reports coming out of Spain that the Portuguese star had requested a transfer from the club
after failed contract extension negotiations.
After the game, Ronaldo was asked about his lack of celebration and said:
"I did not celebrate my goals because I'm unhappy with some people, and the club knows it, they
are professional issues.
I am referring to the Atletico Madrid nightmare the other night of course. Now if you are not a

predictable and in a word "boring!

1. So there we go, this season starts in the same fashion that last season ended. Not playing
very well, some nice moments, no defenders and disappointment. In the newsletter ahead of the game
I said dropping points at Everton wasn't the end of the world. I imagined we could draw there, with
a defeat a possibility, so a 1-0 defeat isn't a big shock.
He looks pretty chuffed...

So pre-season began in earnest yesterday with a 2-1 over a Malaysia XI, although it took a
couple of late goals to do it.
Having gone ahead in first half injury time with a belter of a goal, the Malaysian side looked
fit and determined to cause a 'shock'. We looked very much like a team which was playing its first
real game and although we never really clicked we missed a number of very presentable chances.
With a 1-1 draw against Coritiba in the second leg of the final, Palmeiras won the Copa do
Brasil, their first major trophy since 1999. During manager Phil Scolari's post-match press
conference, several of his jubilant players invaded what was a rather sedate question and answer
session to bring the party to their boss.
Perhaps it's not a shock given the injureis this year, but FC Dallas has apparently made a change
at the trainer position. It's unclear at this time why former trainer Josh Watts is no longer with
the club, but regardless a new face has taken over the head trainer roll.
