Morgan Set to Miss Season

Morgan Set to Miss Season

Sheffield United were dealt a crippling blow yesterday when it was announced Chris Morgan could miss the remainder of the season.

Morgan had a scan on a knee injury picked up at the weekend, and fears were confirmed when it was revealed a cruciate ligament problem, an injury that will not only see him miss the rest of the season, but one which could threaten his career, as he enters the latter stages.

At a time when the Blades are looking for leadership and character on the field, losing Morgan becomes a double blow, and it will require another senior member to step up to the plate.

Boss Speed said of the injury:

i>'It's a massive blow for both Chris and the Club and realistically we won't see him in action again until pre-season training next July.

'The lads we have that can play in the central defender's role will miss his experience and spirit, but I'm sure they will do all in their power to make up for his absence.'

With numbers in defence already thin on the ground, Speed will be looking to bolster his ranks with a signing to cover the skipper's absence.

Anyone care to guess how many of the starting back four on Saturday we will actually own?? What was all that cr*p about having learned lessons from last year's reliance on loans???

I heard tuesdAy Reid was injured but not spoke to my mate since so can't confirm it or not....we knew that we don't own many players even calve and Jordan go at the end of the season! Personally think we'll see a bit of investment in January as his squad isn't good enough and is heading down

There's an interesting piece on the Watford page about their finances. About player sales etc still resulting in a loss due to lower income from television money etc. It's affecting everybody, and as poor as things are at the minute, I do think we'll benefit in the long run. However, I just wish we would admit we're going through a transitional period rather than absurd stats...."Well, in the last four years we've had the joint 2nd highest wage bill in the football legue" It will be something ridiculous like that soon. As for Morgan, big loss. Big big loss. He looked slow at the weekend, but what he gives the team is much more than just his footballing performance. I do feel we need a permanent replacement, and one who will cost a few quid. It's not ideal, but an outlay here is vital. You can't build a defence on the cheap, which we're proving. I solid centre-half in the Matt Mills mould (we wouldn't get Mills obviously), a spark in midfield to play in front of Britton and a forward who will attack the bloody ball, and I honestly think we'd have a squad capable of challenging. That's how narrow the margins are in this league.

Change that - a team capable. We're a long way off a squad.

why wouldnt we get matt mills if we were seriouslly interested in him. donny a bigger club? they wouldn'y be able to ask for too much money due to his contract term and we would blow donnys wages out of the water.

No, but considering he's at Reading, it may prove a stumbling block if we're putting bids to Sean O'Driscoll
