    Sometimes something restores a little faith in humanity

    Tiny moments of human kindness, but mean the world to others.

    Touching stuff. What a truly horrible thing to happen during a night that should have been such a good one for the bloke.

    Will look out for the applause in the replay, which I've no doubt will be roundly observed.

    It's good to hear of the care he received at the ground.
    But I have to say, texting someone to tell them their son has died?
    Is that what people do these days?

    They maybe tried phoning but couldn't speak to him if in packed stadium so had no choice but to send a message to alert him.

    Yes I realise, there may well have been good reason, and I did not intend to criticise.
    But speaking personally, I'd hate to find out something of that nature in that way.

    "The first call was from eldest son Terry that Daniel, who lived in Surrey with his mother, was in intensive care at Royal Surrey County Hospital, in Guildford."

    Given that he was at a match and, reading between the lines, he couldn't head to the hospital immediately, he could well have asked his family to text him if there was any further news - whatever it was.

    Last night in the French cup, Brest (who were relegated to the second tier last summer) were being beaten 2-0 away to non league Fleury. With 7 minutes to go, Fleury brought on a sub who hadn't been listed - apparently the procedure to list your players for a match is computerised but the system kept crashing, Brest too had experienced problems before a Fleury official helped them out.

    Normally in France, this would automatically mean that Fleury forfeit the match. However, this afternoon, Brest issued a statement stating that they were beaten fairly and, in the name of good sportsmanship, they wouldn't be lodging a complaint and wished Fleury all the best in the last 32 (against another non league side).

    The French FA can still overrule this, but surely...
