Cuthbert sustained the injury during Saturday's goalless draw at Preston and was duly forced off just after half-time.

Having made just two appearances at the start of the season, Cuthbert did not feature again until the start of December but has firmly established himself as a regular ever since, appearing in 23 of the club's last 27 games.

Manager Russell Slade told the O's official website: "It's disappointing for us and disappointing for Scott to pick up the injury at this time, particularly as he was starting to recapture his best form."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
