Nothing should surprise me anymore, but I read today that Fabrice Muamba's autobiography titled "I'm Still Standing" is due out in November.

This is an absolute disgrace and nothing more than a pathetic attempt to cash in on almost dying. Have you ever heard anything sicker?

Let's face it, this is going to be the most boring book in the history of literature. I'd rather read Largehat's memoirs. Until his collapse on the pitch Fabrice Muamba was a rather poor footballer being paid ridiculous amounts to pass sideways and shoot into the stands. Who wants to read about that? And while his unfortunate evening at White Hart Lane was front page news, we all know the story, there is nothing that can be added to it.

I'm glad he didn't die and looks to be making a full recovery, but I find this cynical book release rather disturbing and I hope BWFC have the sense to distance themselves from it. I also urge every single one of you to boycott this release, the only person who will benefit from this book is Fabrice Muamba and his publishers.

And almost as disturbing is the news Muamba is beng lined up to appear on a "celebrity" edition of The Apprentice. He's not a fooking celebrity! He's famous for collapsing on a football pitch, nothing more.

The world has gone mad. I won't be part of it.

I saw a banner at the Derby match that read "Fabrice Muamba = Bolton Legend". We're talking about a player who was with us four seasons, for considerable chunks of which, he was rubbish.
So yes, I'm growing tired of the Muamba love-in.
I'm an accountancy student. If I suffer a cardiac arrest in a lecture and survive, will people suddenly want to read my life story?
I don't blame Muamba, I blame the people that are making a celebrity out of him, for what isn't a good reason.
I bet he has at least been approached for the Celebrity Jungle. Then again any ex-PL player is a celebrity by those standards.

I think he's got a more interesting life story than a lot of professional footballers. Growing up in a war torn country. Moving to England aged 10 not knowing the language. Then turning up at the Arsenal academy and asking for a trial.

I do think it's cashing in yes. But since he's going to lose out on years of income from being a footballer after his heart attack (I don't know what his insurance payout is going to be like), but I don't begrudge him doing it.

As for him appearing on Celebrity Apprentice, so what, I love the guy and don't mind him being on tv. Plus he's doing a business/accounting degree, so he might have some idea what he's on about.

Also, we don't know if any of the proceeds from these activities might end up benefiting any heart charities in some way.

You've just written his life story in four sentences. He's going to stretch it out to 200 pages.

By that logic, no biography is really justified. Their respective wikipedia pages will be more succinct that their memoirs.

I think after he was forced to retire from football this kind of thing was inevitable.

I won't read the book personally but i assume he was asked to write it by a publisher who believe there is a market for it so, so be it!

I read somewhere that if he never plays professional football again then his insurance payout will be around 4 million quid.

He will wring as much out of it as he can, maybe we should have a collection for him.

A little harsh on the lad here I think, he oviously has people around him telling him how he can make money, agents etc and an autobiography obviously seems like a good way to tell his story of what happened that night and how he got into football.

Don't tell me other people wouldn't do the same if the opportunity came about.
