I see according to chris Philips that he could be facing a second knee op .If this is true then we wont be seeing him any time soon yet more money spent on a player who doesn't do that .Picking up a wage without kicking a ball in anger .

Have a guess....
Article in the EE this morning about this. Apparently, if he does have the op, he'll only be out for 5-6 weeks.

I spoke to him a few weeks ago outside RH before a game. A really lovely guy and spent ages talking to my son etc

He had just had one knee done which had gone well, so was then waiting for a date to have the second knee done, said that he was very frustrated as it had taken ages to get the right solution/op sorted out, but hoped if all went well to be fit and ready for Christmas period.

medicals may not show future injuries, just as CRB checks don't show future criminals.

I was being sarcastic. We knew he had dodgy knees before we signed him, that has already been clarified by the club. I guess we saw him as a work in progress signing

As with a lot of those we sign, if he'd have been 100% fit I very much doubt we'd have been able to afford to sign him.
