Licha out for at least 2 months with a “serious knee injury”. Nooooo.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not the best news at all. Is that club confirmed?
He adds so much to the team when he is there.
Shame for him too back to rehab.

At least 8 weeks the club confirmed, so earliest game back would he Bournemouth.

A serious ACL would have been 8 months. It’s not good but could have been worse. I hope the young lad Wambala, is it, gets some minutes.

{Ed001's Note - sounds like an MCL injury, they usually take around 2 months or more to recover from.}

Would you bother bringing him back for 6 games unless we really needed to? Assuming of course he is even ready for Bournemouth. Much better to get him right for the following season in my humble opinion.

Imagine if he broke down again and ended up out for the start of new campaign.

I was hoping that Martinez would stay fit and that Kambwala would get some minutes playing alongside him for the remainder of the season.

I ruptured my MCL playing rugby and had a full rebuild. It took 5 months to heal properly, but it sounds like Martinez has gotten lucky. We could see him sooner than expected.

{Ed001's Note - it has got much quicker in recent years. They used to be season ending injuries, now they are about half a season roughly.}

Yeah Ed, I didn’t have the rehabilitation those guys will get! It won’t be long I’m sure before other major injuries we start to see quicker recovery times.

{Ed001's Note - the biggest difficulty is the mental damage, as it can take a long time for some players to feel confident that it won't happen again.}

Not too dissimilar, but I did my ACL playing footy in my youth (although the activity isn't important, it's a twist you could do just as easily going down the stairs) . At least pros get scans the next day and immediate treatment, on the good old NHS they told me it was just a twist for nearly half a year and to put peas on it before I finally got the MRI. So from injury to op it was 7 months, then over half a year of gentle exercises to stretch the new ligament (the hamstring they took from the other side of my knee) . Finally played again about one and a half years later, but was always to petrified to sprint again as I'll always remember the doc saying it could go again just as easily. Different injury I know but there you go.

Correct ed. It was the second major knee injury I’d had and second time round despite a really good recovery and probably being stronger than I was pre injury, I never played the same way.

A lot more hesitant and the fear of re injury was there. I personally couldn’t get past it.

{Ed001's Note - it is very common mate, that is why it takes players so long to get their form back.}
