Jermaine Grandison: Set to go under the knife

Grandison, one of six players to have been offered a new contract by the club, faces a lay-off until Christmas after advice from a specialist.

"It looks likely that he'll require surgery on his hip which is quite an extensive operation," manager Graham Turner told the club's official website.

"He could be out for quite some time. The fear is it could be up to six months which will be a severe blow to us because he's very much an integral part of what we had planned.

"He can play as a central defender, which we've seen, and the enjoyment of playing right-back where he gets forward and I think the crowd have taken to him as a right-back with his little stepovers, his tricks, and his power up and down the right-hand side.

"If he's going to be out for that length of time, it will be a severe blow to us, but we'll get over it."

Tom Bradshaw, Connor Goldson, Jon Taylor, Aaron Wildig and Ryan Woods have all been offered new deals by the Shrews.

"They have a month from the time they receive their offers so it's just over a week has gone by since that," Turner added. "We just have to wait and see what happens now."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. 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.

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.
