Eardley blow for Birmingham

Birmingham City have received a blow with the news that 24-year-old defender Neal Eardley has been ruled out for the rest of the season.

Neal Eardley: Has suffered a knee injury

The right-back limped off in the first half of Saturday's 1-1 home draw against Ipswich and scans have since revealed he has ruptured his medial ligament and suffered a partial tear to his anterior cruciate ligament.

Eardley, who now requires surgery, was making only his seventh appearance for Blues since arriving over the summer from Blackpool on a three-year deal.

The setback makes manager Lee Clark's deadline-day signing of Paul Caddis from Swindon an even more important capture.

Caddis, who also operates at right-back, enjoyed a successful season-long loan at St Andrew's last term and was a key summer target for Clark, who had looked to have missed out due to financial constraints at the Midlands club before securing a late move for his services.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
