Petrov In Remission - Official

Hopefully they'll be more to come on this tomorrow, but Karl Court, the former General Secretary of the Former Players' Association has passed on the great news that Stan is in remission.


Everybody got excited when Alistair Campbell unfortunately said Stan was in remission previously when it wasn't accurate, but Karl has confirmed tonight that the great news is now true.


'I have been asked by Stan to say a massive thanks to all of you as he has just received the fantastic news that he is in remission. But will have to be monitored for the foreseeable future. Once again thanks to you all for your ongoing support.'

Made up for Stan on this, whilst the battle isn't over - in some ways it may never be with the risk of it returning - it's a huge step on the road to full recovery and it'll be a great weight off his and his families shoulders.

Congratulations Stan!

I remember how good it felt to watch the team turn out each week when we were challenging for the CL spots and slowly it disappeared...MON, Barry, Young, Carew, Milner, Reo-Coker, Laursen, Bouma, Mellberg, Harewood, hell, even contributers like Zat bloody Knight were breifly here then gone, etc....But throughout it all Stan would always be out there, wearing the arm band and making me proud to support this club. I can't wait till the day he comes out that tunnel to do it again.
