Stiliyan Petrov

Post by roversmillsy » Fri Mar 30, 2012 4:42 pm

Aston Villa's Stiliyan Petrov has been diagnosed with Acute Leukaemia.

Desperately sad news and I hope he manages to pull through.

Yeah, that's awful news. Always thought he was a good player, and someone we should have tried harder to get in to fill that Tugay gap.

Hope he beats it.

Awful news. Wonder if there'll be a Muamba-style outpouring of support or if it will be more low-key :shrug: ?

Maybe they can recycle, and just add the extra name :)

I've always like Petrov, just a decent all around footballer. Always sad to hear this type of thing, lets just hope he pulls through it.
