So this 'bang' on his knee must be pretty bad.

 

 

Yes , we appear to get the same weekly saga -

Trained this week , big chance he will play Saturday , then not even in the squad.

 

heard the same week in week out and just wish they

would say one way or another whats going on!!!!!

Have to agree - the injury must be far more serious than anyone is letting on. Sack the Physio... :grin:

If he isn't back soon we should either get a loan in or integrate Winchester or Mellor into the 1st team. Taylor in a 2 man central midfield is no more than a stop gap and will not work against teams other than the likes of Walsall or Exeter at home.

To be fair to the club - in my team at the moment one of our players keeps thinking he will be back but his niggley injury on his knee isnt quite going away to play in a proper match maybe Furmans is similar.

He hobbled down the steps last night

 

Hardly looked like a man who is near fitness to me

Exactly he didn't look like being ready from the main stand upper to me. Although going down stairs is the hardest everyday activity for a dodgy knee.

Dean Furman yesterday had an injection as he makes a final push for fitness following his injury lay off. Paul Dickov says the influential midfield man and team captain, who has been out for the past month through a knee ligament injury, is not far away from a return to action.

Don't like this injections business, it suggests something is badly wrong and I would rather him not play for a while and sort it out rather than risk further aggravation.

If something was that bad he wouldn't have hobbled down the steps without crutches to complete the half-time draw. A injection into a knee is probably either a bit of local pain relief or a steroid to ease inflammation. I'd be more worried if I heard he was going back to see a specialist or to have another scan, to have an injection means that the medical team are fairly confident nothing major is wrong.

Hope you are right and it's a one off, but there have been many cases of players having injection after injection and that can't be good thing in the long term.
