Forgotten about this amongst all the other talking points, but shouldn't it have been a corner to us before they went up the other end and scored from that corner?

 

 

I imagine broken leg given it was an impact challenge, with possible ligament damage.

 

Surely he would have gone straight to the nearest hospital if it was a break?

Doubt it's a break unless it's his knee cap. Looked like the boot hit his femur and I can't imagine that breaking. My diagnosis is his knee is fucked somehow. ;)

 

I thought we were better than them unlike most on here it seems, and that's not taking into account they should have been playing with 10 men. As for the handball at the end, truly sickening. Let's hope we get some karma.

What an utter fucking shambles that was from the referee and assistants. Granted we weren't very good, but that challenge was horrible. And their winning 'goal' came from what should have been our corner and then a blatant hand ball!

 

Review panel and a couple of weeks off the the incompetent bastards.

Pardew apparently told the BBC that it's ligament damage and serious bruising. That actually (optimism) doesn't sound too bad... No medic though, ligament damage could be worse than a break for all I know.

 

It can be a lot worse actually. Depends on the exact nature of it.

Unfortunately I couldn't see the game, I know we lost but could someone give a rough summary of what happened.

 

Even game. We started brightly but lost Debuchy early to injury. Then they scored. Then macmanaman committed GBH on Haidara. Carver kicked off at half the and was sent to the stands for the second half. Pardew reshuffled things second half with Shola joining Cisse up front and santon out wide. We started to create chances after looking poor for most of the first half. Santon scored a great goal, cutting in from the right. Then Cisse had a chance from the 6 yard box saved after finally getting a good ball in from Shola. Ten as we were pressing for the winner, we concede a soft corner from a sliced clearance. The ball is handled twice. All our players appeal and the ball ends up in the back of the net while they all stand like statues with their hands in the air.

 

Infuriating.

Calmed down a bit now and put things in perspective. We are in the 1/4final of the Europa, we still have a good team, we have some winnable games coming up and most teams around us can't buy a win. QPR and Reading nailed on to go down so we just need to make sure we better Sunderland and Villas results which I'm confident we will.

 

I still can't get my head around the Mackems being happy we lost despite it putting them possibly 1 point within relegation

8 games left and the only "banker" is Fulham who've just won at Spurs.

 

Why should a team thats won one game all season suddenly expect to get points off Man City, West Brom and West Ham?

Cruciate ligament is the injury all footballers dread. You can come back from it (Van Nistelrooy is one example) but its a long hard road. Looking at 6-9 months out, maybe more.

 

Balls.

 

More relevant examples for us include Shearer and Owen, surely? Also finished Clough's playing career which might otherwise have been great. Coming to think of it, odd that all the above mentioned were strikers, can't think offhand any examples of defenders that have come back from serious cruciate damage.

Thanks for the info, Nice to see Santon finally get his goal. So did the cunt who did the gbh on Haidara get sent off or was it a typical Hallsey refereeing and let the prick off? Really thought we would shit on Wigan. Ah well there's always Man City to shit on.

Wasn't even given a free kick.

It used to end careers but surgery has come on massively. That's not to say it won't threaten his career or his level of play in future but there's more hope than there used to be. Shearer was never the same in terms of mobility after doing his ligaments but iirc it was the ankle for him. Owen definitely lost a yard of pace but I think that part of his game was starting to decline before he did his knee at the World Cup.

 

Arteta and Skertel are two other recent examples of players that have come back from cruciate injuries and managed to recover to play at a high level.
