We are beginning to get a full picture of why Michael Carrick said that Riley McGree would be out for a matter of weeks but the others were far longer. Tommy Smith was 10 months from his injury and now Lenihan the same sort of thing.
I don't follow other clubs injury situations so I don't know how common it is, but we seem to have had a fair share of long term injuries over the past few seasons. Off the top of my head Ameobi, Fisher, Smith, Clarke and now lenihan(with Fisher and Ameobi being career ending injuries). Is this normal or are we just unlucky?
Wish the lad well and a speedy recovery but I don't think it's a particularly big loss to be honest, we have improved dramatically since he was out the team, I always thought him and fry never worked out!!
