Manchester United have suffered an injury blow as Chris Smalling has been ruled out with a cracked bone in his foot.

According to The Daily Mail Smalling, 21, cracked a bone in his foot against Otelul Galati earlier this month and further exacerbated the injury against Man City last Sunday.

The report states he will be out for 3 weeks meaning he will miss miss games against Everton, Otelul Galati, Sunderland, Swansea and possibly Benfica and Newcastle.

    I note the Daily Fail only mention the Ingurland games, full and informed as normal from that pile of crap arsewipe waste of rain forest.Ooops its the Mail on line…..well ink.
    Thats a friggen blow to Chris and not least us ohhh well we have Micheal Carrick as standbye centre half or Darren Fletcher all is not lost!

    A big blow because he has stepped up his game this season. The problem is we can’t get a settled back four anymore, and I would consider Smalling to be part of our best back four now. However its only 3 weeks and we can consider that lucky. It could have been 3 months.

    Last week was a disaster but I’m not sure we can afford to throw Ferdinand away or make him a scape goat for the problems. The real issue is the midfield, which was terrible in terms of attacking, but also defensively. Anderson and Fletcher couldn’t win on tackle. I’m expecting Park, Carrick and Cleverley to play in midfield against Everton. Ferdinand should play alongside Vidic, with Evra left back and Jones at right back.

  3. This is not good at this time,i feel sorry for him

    GREAT. JUST BLOODY GREAT. Oh well, i heard Rafael is near a comeback and Vidic is back so we should feel it too much…
