Reid to miss another season

Reid to miss another season

Steven Reid, no stranger to the surgeons table, has been given the most devestating of news that yet again, he will miss the remainder of the season.

The luck of the Irish, or lack of which we should say, has shone on Reid throughout his career. After missing the 2006-2007 season with back and knee injuries, Reid has been informed that yet again, he requires surgery on the injured knee which has kept him out of action for 4 weeks. The rehabilation time is estimated to be up to 7 months, effectively ending another campaign for the lad.

What can you say. Devestating news, for Steven Reid, for the Republic of Ireland, and for the Blackburn Rovers football club.

We can only wish Reid a safe recovery, and hopefully he will be back to his best for next season.

Get Well Reidy!!!!

Whether you rate the lad or not, you really do have to feel sorry for him, really hasnt had any luck with injuries at all.... Looks like the signing of Andrews could be a valuable 1 after all

So nice he posted it twice!!! So harsh on Reidy, whether you rate him or not he seems such a great lad and he doesnt deserve this.

Oz - Carlos Villanueva? Matt Derbyshire? They may not be ideal but they can sure as heck play there.

Man... is devastated to be football player and get injuries all the time. I feel sorry for Reid, he must be frustrated, because you can't do what you like. Roque had been there before (Fun fact: Did you know that Roque didn't complete, because of major injuries, 7 out of 8 seasons at Bayern, inlcudin 4 surgeries!)

I like Reid a lot as a player and this is gutting not only for the him but the team, a player that can play anywhere really in the squad is a valuable player at the best of times but when he's a good footballer to boot then........... i for one wish him a speedy recovery

Shocking!! The downside is that he'll probably never get back to the form he was producing when United were reportably interested in him - Our loss

Reid has 1.5 years left on his contract. We therefore must sell him in the coming summer. I think he was a great CM, and I even remember that Alex Ferguson tried to lure him to MAn Utd. However he seems to struggle to stay fit for more than 3-4 games- We can't afford that...
