Sakho injury news looks bleak

diafra-sakho_2drfyklhqef71my2kzqgalnltIt is looking increasingly likely that Diafra Sakho could be out for months rather than weeks according to unconfirmed reports this afternoon by various sources.

His injury will be assessed over the next 24 hours when he is due to see a specialist to ascertain the full extent of the injury.

The early signs are not good and there are claims circulating that he could be out until February. Bilic admitted after the clash with West Brom that it didn’t look good saying.“The specialist will see him to give an opinion. It looks like a muscle injury and the first news is not the best. It is a big blow,

KUMB.com have claimed the striker could be out for 10 weeks.

Sakho has scored five goals in 13 appearances in all competitions this season.

  1. Kumb are now a medical authority I knew they had nothing to do with football by there comments,
    I think I will wait until Slavs mob make it official,they way he went down it looked like a thigh strain,
    We will miss him if it is one week or ten,he has been the Best Buy by this club for years and will be missed as much as Payet,
    At least this year we are blessed with plenty of forwards we only need one up top under our new system so with Carroll,Jelavic,Antonio,Lee,Moses and Samulsun not bad to add to Zarate and Lanzini

  2. Carol and jelovich can’t play the role up front like sakho and moses – Samuelson and Antonio are wide players which leaves us with Lee who is out on loan with Samuelson leaves us very short on the ground CF wise!
    Maybe Bilic will change the style accordingly and play to remaining strengths ,
    We are dropping points at a fast rate so obviously sakho , payet , and Valencia are a huge loss all at once so something has to change ? How is up to Bilic , tough times for Bilic in the coming weeks and we need to stand firm with him . We are not a rich club so can’t go spending loads in Jan .
    IMO we do not have the personnel to carry on this style of play so a change may have to be adapted, 4_5_1 or 4_1_4_1 or even a 3_5_2 ? Bilic will have to play to his strengths !!!

  3. I’m having a bet v mancs that jenks gives a pen away and the culprit for diving will be young?
    Jenks to have a nightmare !!!! Hope I’m wrong but?????
    Song kouyate and obiang must start !!!
    Tommo at right back !!!! Will give us a chance !!!
    And to put a spanner in the works ,play moses at CF?? Why not !! He’s ***** on the wing
    But he is strong and fast ? Got nothing to lose ! Carol and jelly will do jack against man u.

  4. Johnboy, you make a lot of sense.. I would definitely play Song, Obiang and Kouyate in midfield. Would put Kouyate in front of Song and Obiang. I would play either Tomkins of Oxford at RB, neither Jenks or Burke up to it. Jenks is not at the race at all and Burke has yet to prove to me he is top notch. Young Oxford has shown he has the ability and temperament. If you are good enough you are old enough. I would play Moses and Lanzini wide of Zarate. Forget Carroll and Jelavic – I am 50 years old and I would have more chance of scoring than them ha ha
