Looks like Louis Saha's injury curse has struck again. He came on for France as a sub in the 70th minute and went in for a pretty innocuous looking challenge 5 minutes later where he appeared to hurt his knee.
Having signalled to the bench that he should be withdrawn he was swiftly removed, his game not even lasting 10 minutes. He did come off unaided however and appeared to be more disappointed than anything else so let's hope for the best.
Looks like those leeches didn't help much. Incidentally Belarus are 1 up with less than 5 minutes to play.

Another on here commented about his attitude since signing a contract.
I work hard at my day job and wonder whether this individual does also?
Finally, even then, we see a glimpse of class (undeniably) what more does he contribute .

Shame about the injury, he looked alot better against Villa.

Moyes has played the transfer window all wrong though. Like I said in the Pienaar discussion, if we sold Yak for 6mil, Yobo for a couple more, we would be sitting on at least 9mil. They then would have had the money to decide what they are going to do with Piennar.
BK or Moyes might have been able to get or edge a few more for the likes of a Remy or LD.

If we did take it, what strikers would be available to buy?
When you ask yourself who would you rather have ? Yak or Saha? The answer is Saha. A sold Yak = Remy? LD? Crouch? (Pienaar 5-year deal?)

Hey Ronan,The offer was made last season,had we taken it I'm sure we would have another striker in place by now!

It all boils down to decisions & opinions from the the likes of medical staff at the club (why did Mick Rathbone get the sack?) and obviously money with us anyway. My opinion is that £8M was a huge offer for Saha.
18 Posted 04/09/2010 at 12:45:16
£8M maybe a large offer for Saha, but it would have left a large gap in the team.

How much is he on a week and has he scored a league goal since he signed this big fat contract? I don't think he has but it's ok because he's still our number one striker, could you imagine the Yak still being given a chance if he was going through such a barren run in front of goal?
Moyes persists with Saha and Beckford even though they obviously aren't doing the business when we have other strikers like Yakubu and Vaughan who never get the chance to start upfront on their own. Yakubu's confidence must be shattered to pieces to see them continually play ahead of him.

Toffeeweb denizens may now post their own joke here. The best joke wins a box of leeches autographed by Louis Saha.
