So the Mail are reporting that Jack Rodwell will be out for three months with ankle ligament damage.
After the recent injury to King Louis, are we in for an all-too-familiar start of the season...
Here we go again?

At least Fellaini is fit so perhaps the follwing line up versus ManU:
Neville, Jagielka, Distin, Baines;
Coleman, Arteta, Fellaini, Osman, Pienaar; Cahill.
Bench: Mucha, Louis Sicknote, Hibbert, Duffy, Gueye, Anichebe, Beckford.

He would be fit to play probably in December, no-one will hear a damn thing and then some time in the New Year the club will anounce a "set back" in his recuperation. He will return in time to lead our charge for 9th place.
And so it goes on and on and on.... and then he will sign for the Mancs.

My rant though is that these fuckers, who must know that they have caught someone (whether deliberately or not ? only they will know) and then stand over the person they have just crippled and try to divert attention by making out that they are feigning injury... straight yellow for this in my opinion. At the very least, at 14 stone plus and landing on the exposed ankle, that twat must have known he had hurt Rodwell. Ungentlemanly conduct or some such thing I think.
Also, Sky/MotD and papers should make more of it ? the standing over bit I mean ? I know mistimed tackles can cause injury but the twat doing it should be apologising, not making out the injured party is a pussy!

What I would say is that the Yobo loan is looking like a blinding bit of business now isn't it... NOT! If Jags or Distin get suspended or Fellaini gets injured, we are down to the bare bones in centre back / holding midfield. Also, I think the continued absence and silence on Neville is ominous as well. Yes, he is not universally popular... but his versatility is badly missed.
10 Posted 09/09/2010 at 10:28:52
Also, Johnny is not totally one-footed so the lack of a genuine left-right combo at centre-half is no big issue for me. His and Jagielka's anticipation and relative assuredness at the back would be sensible for me.
Irrespective of who we play, I hope Moyes and Moyes's general on the pitch (Pip of course), have a fully committed 'get stuck in and get at them through the channels' attitude and game plan. Felli, Ossie and Mikky have the ability and nouse to release Coleman and Pienaar to wreak havoc and a bouncing Goodison will rock as Tiger Tim's lethal finishing tears into the red meat! Let's fucken have 'em... bring it on, COYB!!!!

13 Posted 09/09/2010 at 11:38:42
14 Posted 09/09/2010 at 13:03:01
Hibbert, Jagielka, Distin, Baines
Bily, Fellaini, Pienaar
Bench: Mucha, Beckford, Gueye, Osman, Yakubu, Coleman.
15 Posted 09/09/2010 at 13:11:43
We may have a settled selection now and get playing as a team again.
Just a thought.
16 Posted 09/09/2010 at 13:29:21
17 Posted 09/09/2010 at 16:02:13
Coleman - Heitinga - Jagielka - Baines
Fellaini - Arteta
Gueye - Bily - Pienaar

The official club statement would probably be on the lines that they are still waiting for the swelling to go down ? but not even that has come out yet. Bloody frustrating website... they should be in Government office!
24 Posted 09/09/2010 at 22:38:05
His cross for Fellaini's goal against Huddersfield was the finest ball into the box I have ever seen!

Straight Yellow - "for being a cunt"
Straight Red - "for being a proper cunt"
Why are these not in the laws of the game...?!?!

Unlikely any of the new boys will start but I would like to see Heitinga start instead of Osman. Can't see it happening though.
36 Posted 10/09/2010 at 13:59:09
All those complaining about the Yobo loan please stop. His form over the past two seasons was HORRIBLE! Do you not watch the matches?
37 Posted 10/09/2010 at 15:34:16
He's not and he isn't.
He won't be missed that much coz he duzn't fuckin' get a game.
If he was as good as everyone is saying / thinks he is, he wouldn't be playing for Everton, let's face it.
38 Posted 10/09/2010 at 15:38:34
He is as good as everyone says he is. But you're right, he probably won't be here for long... just like Rooney.
By the way, I've just seen a comment on NewsNow that Coleman's supposed to have twittered (if that's how you say it) that there's a big surprise for Saturday...
Coleman right wing, anyone?
