Morecambe striker Redshaw was stunned to hear that medical tests had found 24-year-old Thompson, now with Tranmere, had contracted nodular sclerosing Hodgkin's disease last week.

The two know each other from their season together at Spotland in 2010/11 and Redshaw would like nothing more than to see Thompson back on a football pitch again once his six-month chemotherapy course is over.

"When I saw the news I was so upset," said Redshaw.

"He's just had a baby, a one-year-old baby girl, so it's obviously heart-breaking to hear.

"But I'm sure he's got the right family and friends around him. I just hope to see him recover well and to see him back hopefully playing one day."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
