Andrea Orlandi: Broken rib rules him out fo six weeks

Andrea Orlandi: Broken rib rules him out fo six weeks

The Spaniard, a summer signing from Swansea, suffered the injury during Saturday's 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace.

Manager Gus Poyet told The Argus: "He has got a broken rib and he is going to be out for a while. It is going to be four to six weeks, depending on the healing process for Andrea.

"He didn't play a lot at Swansea, so we have tried to keep an eye on him because of the football he has missed in the past.

"Everything we have done until now is going to be gone. In a month-and-a-half we will have to start from zero with him, so it is very unfortunate and then, of course, there's his quality as well.

"He has been getting more influential in the team and also with set plays, so it's a blow but that is why the squad is there, to make sure we don't miss him too much."

Poyet also has injury concerns over Wayne Bridge and Adam El-Abd ahead of Saturday's trip to Charlton, while Marcos Painter is definitely ruled out and Lewis Dunk is suspended.

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

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.

Wenger hails important win

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.
