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."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
