  1. I am sick of these stupid clichés. If all these injured players are going to come back stronger, why don’t we injure more of them on a regular basis? Think how strong they will all be in future.

  2. What’s the injury – a hamstring or what?

  3. If I remember well he was clipped from behind by that disgusting individual called Cabaye. That psychopath should be kicked off the pitch on every match. The week before he committed a brutal aggression on Newcastle player (could have broken his leg), for no reason and all of a sudden in a no threat area of the pitch. He only got a yellow. Against us he should have been sent off for three yellows. Still had the guts to pretend Fonte was acting up. Well there you have it.

    On the other hand, this should open up the gate to the highway for Rice. If Burke returns, we have cover. Thin, but we have it.
