Robbie's Back!!!!

Blackburn Rovers midfielder Robbie Savage is closing in on a return from a spell on the sidelines.

Savage suffered a knee injury during October's 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur and underwent surgery in order to rectify the problem.

After six weeks out, the 33-year-old resumed training on Friday and could feature in Sunday's trip to Fulham.

'Robbie trained for the first time on Friday and was full of it afterwards,' Rovers chairman John Williams is quoted as saying in the Daily Star.

'He should be in contention for a place against Fulham.'

I for one wish him a speedy recovery, so that he can come back and pick up another even worse injury.

But if you add up the "combined months of injuries" he has caused players over the years, he got of kinda easy with only six weeks.

Sav has made a remarkable recovery, although most players do these days with the advanced technology that is used. It will be VERY interesting to see what Sparky does though, will Sav come straight back in, or will he have to take a place on the bench?!?!

I think he could go straight back in but that would perhaps be a bit harsh on the Axe.

Blue is the colour - Dude I think you like so many other are under a common misconception that Sav HAS or DOES cause serious injuries to others, I've said this MANY a time when people have claimed he has (quite often when they have been "happy" to see Sav injured) he has NEVER caused a serious injury to anyone, and if he ever has this has been purely accidental.

It will be VERY harsh on the Axe, and that could probably be the final straw for him? He's hinted that he might look to move on, if Sav comes straight back in after injury then I think he might be asking for a move away in January?!?!

Yeah the only serious injureid I can remember any of our players doing are Lucas Neill on Carragher and Axe on Robben. Other than that... its just the media based reputation that is over hyped and false.

I agree with HDM, I think if Sav does go straight back into the 1st team he will look for a move. It does'nt bother me though as I hope Sav does go straight back in. Mokoena provides good cover, but that's all he really has to offer!

fair enough spinaker... He is versatile (aaron) therefore is very good cover.

I'm glad Sav is on the mend and will be back soon - as for the axe, I'd be surprised if Hughes puts Sav straight back in, usually he takes his time bringing injured players back in.

I dunno... sometimes there are exceptions... Robbie and GOd being a couple of exceptions.

There shouldn't really be any exceptions should there, but there are and Sav is probably one of them as you say dude.

True, although he did drop him before he was injured for him to pick up his form

My mate once descriped Savage as 'the salt in the stew'. Not the first ingredient you think of, but you you know when it's not there and it always adds flavour when it is there. A perfect summary of our Mr Savage, I think. In addition, I apologise for my recent abscenteeism. I have got a new computer at work, and I have been slowly adding the old favourites. VF is now added...

I REALLY like the summary of Sav, and it is spot on as well, hopefully this will catch on dude.
