Sam Byram: Could face an extended spell out

Sam Byram: Could face an extended spell out

The right-back, sidelined since the end of last season with a hip injury, is hoping an injection will help resolve the problem, but manager Brian McDermott said he may need an operation.

"Sam's got a hip problem," McDermott told LUTV. "He had an injection last week and we'll have a look at it over the next two or three days, but there's a possibility that he'll need an operation.

"We don't know yet, but that could put him out for a period of time. We'll know within the next week and it's a shame for him, but he's only 19 and if he has to be out for a while, we have to do the right thing by Sam.

"He's a good guy and a very, very good player. We'll wait and see."

Byram burst on to the first-team scene under previous manager Neil Warnock at the start of last season and went on to keep his place in the side throughout the campaign.

His outstanding performances did not go unnoticed outside Elland Road and he was linked with a £10million move to Manchester City in April.

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.
