Peter Whittingham

Recommended Posts

Rumours circulating that our old player Peter Whittingham has fallen down the stairs and is now in intensive care. 

Rumours right now but I hope it isn't true. Admins delete if not this isn't ok to put up

Few ex players commenting on it now - looks like it may unfortunately be true. Likes of Chopra who played with him have posted messages as such.

Jesus what a terrible few days just made worse.

Chopra has posted something on Twitter as has Gillespie (latter since deleted it by the looks). Liam Ridgewell too.

Bad do if true, very poor here but seems he's got legendary status at Cardiff. Awful rumours.

Looking on twitter some people are claiming its correct and others saying it's fake news.

Michael Chopra's tweet (he has no confirmation as far as I can see)

I fear the longer it goes without a denial the more likely it is to be true :(

Let's hope that he will come through intensive care. I think somebody has jumped the gun about his death, which seems to have spread rumours like wildfire.

Glad to see his status was upgraded to Alive!

Really hope he pulls through now

Always fascinating to see the reverence Fulham fans have for Danny Murphy. :blink:

Obviously i hope he makes a full recovery but there were similarities in the winding down look when he was here.

We certainly didn't see him at his best, but to be honest I think that was partially down to the fact that by the beginning of the season he wasn't going to dislodge Dack as the creative force or Smallwood in the defensive role so he didn't really fit into the system. The rest of our transfer activity that summer pretty much rendered him obsolete before we kicked a ball. A disappointment but I wouldn't put him in the same category as Murphy, a player who we were relying on and was just terrible.

In the grand scheme of things I have no ill will towards Whittingham from his time here, quite a bit of admiration for his Cardiff career and hope he makes a good and speedy recovery. 

Edit - ten minutes after I posted the above we get confirmation of his passing. Tragic by any measure, no age to go at all.
