I like the fact that it was a 'grade one' (what is the scale - is one the worst or the best) injury? The spin the blood and then re-inject the plasma....what?! I just hope for Daffy's sake that he doesn't end up playing when he is seriously injured.
I still think that Toon and Southampton will get sucked in. Mainly as I'm not convinced that lots of 'untried' purchases in Jan works very well and secondly that the sacking of the Saints manager and replacement with a man who can't speak English doesn't strike me as being overly sensible.
That article's ridiculous - the under headline blurb says that the injury won't force AVB into the transfer market, but the quotes say absolutely nothing about buying or selling players, not even an inference!
Grade one is the lightest http://www.physioroom.com/prevention/muscle_strains.php - it's a sprain (I was going to say a pulled muscle but that might be trivialising too much...). I've heard of the blood spinning before, I think it's meant to be to help recovery time; it's considered doping in some sports but in football it's just 'controversial'.
