Here's his message after getting home from hospital. Puts all my problems into perspective quite frankly.

Get well soon mate and I'm sure you'll walk again. In fact you'll run again.

Don't know how to put it but thats a nice article to read. I am glad he is ok and wish him all the best. Couldn't omagine going through that. Get him in as Town manager i say, a real fighter. Well done to his dad absolutely awesome stuff just shows how much we all need our family.

That is horrific in its detail. Had no clue as to it being that bad. I wish him all the very best in his recovery, he certainly has the spirit to get himself through. That shambolic team of ours should be alerted to this story and shame them into earning their wages.

Don't think I need to wish you good luck, Marc. Having read your article, it's obvious that you, with your dad's support, are now making your own luck! Keep your chin up! You'll get there!

It's a shame the team hasn't got your determination!

"BASICALLY, to cut a massively long story short for the first time in my life I am not afraid to admit that I suffer from depression, "


Your a Town fan, of course you f@cking do !!  ;)

Sounds like the scene from Terminator dragging yourself relentlessly along, bet you will never slag the trains for being late again.

In all seriousness wish you well with your recovery, just focus on the day you will be walking back through the gates of Blundell Park for inspiration........mind you on second thoughts that may not actually help.....walking back through the doors of Playgirls for inspiration.. :)

Jeez...I knew you'd had an "accident" but reading your account brought a lump to my throat!

Good on you and your dad....don't stop believing and you're on the road to making it

Depressed or not, if only our players had your guts and positive outlook they'd be giving you one less cause to feel down

Hope you get well soon!

Mate, you've admitted you suffer from depression.  Does your Doc know you are going to watch Town  ;)

Lets hope the players show half the guts that you have.

By the time I got to paragraph 4 tears were begining to well in my eyes, I think it was the dad involvement, I can relate to your dad's thoughts as I have kids your age. The battle you two are experiencing at the moment is far more important than any other battle we may be worrying about at the moment. Good luck Wrawbs keep us informed.

Drove over the tunnel twice yesterday and found myself thinking of you both times Wrawbs, it's a hell of a hole to drop into. Be good,keep your hands off the nurses when you have to go back for check ups and don't be long before you try for BP.

In a wheelchair you would be at the Osmond end of the Mainstand and you would enter the ground through the players and officials gate (which has no turnstile). Wheelchair users have a spot at the front. Not sure how much you can see from there.

They wont, Mr.Rudrum has a certificate to say so.  They sit where it is convenient to evacuate them easily without being in a general crush should the ground ever need evacuating(God forbid). They wouldn't allow you in the Ponny or the lower Findus for that very reason.

what about that space between the ponny and mainstand?
Posted by: theicenian, March 1, 2010, 1:20am; Reply: 43
You can't see from there the fence is covered in advertising boards and the fence is higher than where the wheelchairs are. Besides as I say Mr.Rudrum has a certificate to protect so even if you go there they won't let you stay to watch the game.

It's not a bad view at all down at the front of the main stand. You feel very close to the action (what action???) and despite what others say there's a good atmosphere in there. The only trouble is that the pitch seems to curve very slightly downhill going towards the Lower Findus. I've always sat towards the front; I tried the Upper Findus once as an experiment and hated it. You'll be fine there matey

It was quite funny really cos when I was in there for the 6 week spell I had my own cubicle off the main ward and had the shirt pinned up on my board and practically everyone who saw it just assumed I was a Newcastle fan until I put them right.

Jeez,

I thought you'd just got something simple like a broken leg...

Its not so bad in the main stand, Just dont be too noisy and wake us old gits  :).

Seriously, before the game  and at half time get in the family lounge for a Bovril or something stronger...at half time you get to see the goals we've conceded on the tele....

Heres hoping you will back in your favourite stand before too long.

Hang in there and all the best..

Sounds promising, without wishing to place a dampner on your plans have you contacted the club to see what, if any, restrictions they may have on crutches in the ground? Wouldnt want you turning up just to be turned away.
