Season over for Tyias Browning

Tyias Browning has suffered another injury setback and will miss the remainder of the season because a groin problem.

The 23-year-old centre half, who is currently on a season-long loan at Sunderland, suffered the injury during Tuesday's clash with Aston Villa and scans have revealed the issue is worse than the Black Cats' medical staff first thought.

Browning, who missed a large chunk of the 2015-16 season with a knee injury, has made 29 appearances in all competitions for Sunderland so far this season but his loan spell in the northeast is now effectively over.

Tyias. Looked promising under Martinez. Would have been more involved with the squad if it wasn't for Martina and wouldn't get a game under Allardyce anyways. Here's for a speedy recovery and hit the ground running for the upcoming new manager in the summer.

Edit: About the new manager. The club might just wait for Shaktar Donetsk to get our of the Champions League and snap Fonseca? Fingers crossed.

Played a blinder against the RedShite and Manure and was dropped!!!!

Oh, the quality of our managers.

Good luck on your rehab and hopefully back to a new manager who plays talent.

Pity really, I was only reading the other day, he has been earning rave reviews, and was highly thought of by Chris Coleman.

Wish him all the best for a speedy recovery.

Promising youngster, thought he may have got more game time by now at Everton but he's certainly got himself plenty of practice defending at Sunderland.

On a positive note; he should be back at Goodison, albeit on the treatment table when they are committed to the third tier shortly. You've got to feel for their supporters; just a calamitous fall from grace.

I'm glad to hear that, Derek. He has been almost ever present on the Sunderland side as a centre-back this season, but I had wrongly assumed their perilous position reflected his performances. I'd love to see him prosper in an Everton side.

Look around the league and most clubs have strong tough-nut centre-backs, but we never managed to recruit them. Morgan and Huth were the foundation for Leicester's league win, Harry Maguire carrying on now, Tarkowski and Mee last weekend. Primary role is to defend, block, tackle, scrap. I hoped Tyias would mature similarly with a bit of Championship experience. Of course, stick one of these in an Everton shirt and it's "Oh, his passing is shite, no composure".

Hey, I see Allardyce has lost a bit of support in the ToffeeWeb Poll, down from 5% to 4%.

Derek #4, the reviews I've read have been a bit more mixed. Browning was pulled off after 45 minutes against Brentford on Feb. 17 for poor play, and lost his place for the next two games before regaining it last week against Millwall. And the Sunderland fan sheet Roker Report has been sharply critical of him at times.

Wish him the best, but I'm a skeptic regarding his Everton future. Hard to see him emerging from a crowd of youngsters that includes Holgate, Pennington, Foulds, Connolly, Markelo and Feeney.

I’m not sure why this even makes news because he’s about as likely to forge a career at Everton as Jack Rodwell currently is and that chance is NIL.

Jim, I know what you mean... but he is still an Everton player under contract with EFC (through June 2019). And some posters have in the recent past lauded the leftness of his feet... something currently lacking in our defence.

Duty bound to keep us all informed!

Michael, too bad there's not much deftness with the leftness.

Leftness, Deftness, I thought he was right-footed??

Michael - "the leftness of his feet"

This is good.

Mike - "too bad there's not much deftness with the leftness."

This is excellent. And accurate.

Ralph (3) - He held his own for 15-20 minutes in a tight game at Anfield that Jags got us a point with his strike. Good for Tyias. That;s almost 4 years ago.

He's 24 in May, in and out of the worst team in the Championship.

I agree we need a better manager than the last 4. But young Browning is playing at his level.

God bless him for a life-long Evertonian local boy. We need much better, though, for Everton to get back fighting for titles.

I doubt he would make it with us.

He is half-Chinese so I think he would make tons of money playing in China.

I feel very sorry for the lad. He looked a great prospect when he first appeared, but like many of our promising youngsters, he was denied opportunities by the costly bums that we signed, pushing him down the pecking order and going out on loan. His unfortunate injuries hindered his progress further.

I wish you a speedy recovery Tyias and good luck for the future. You are still a relatively young man and hopefully will come back stronger from this setback.

Let's be honest, the young players that we have had glimpses of, Browning included, could surely do better than our current overpriced overpaid overrated first-team players. At least Unsworth was prepared to give them their chance, which is seemingly more than our current fraudster manager will do.

I wish him well, I would like him to recover, refocus, be given an opportunity and do well, if not with Everton then somewhere else and forge a good career and living.

Same message as for all our youngsters. If they are good enough for us then great; if not, there is life after Everton.

From what I have seen, Browning has been picking up quite a lot of five out of ten ratings at Sunderland. It is perhaps unfair to pass judgement on a player at a club struggling at the bottom of their league but there is no evidence he has enough to succeed in the Premier League.

He is most certainly not a natural left-back and would not have been in the team ahead of Martina this season.
