I certainly wouldn't be extending his contract if I was the club.  Absolutely pointless paying somebody to sit in the treatment room all year.

Out for another three weeks …..disappointing
The fella really does appear to be injury prone.
Not his fault I know but the club needs to make a decision on him
We are left short in the squad once again

They said three weeks last time. Better wrap Sama in cotton wool, otherwise we're down to Swansea's third choice striker.

End of the season, I believe.

It's a whole new ball game these days but look back and see what injuries some players played with back in the day - ok , it probably shortened their careers but the rewards were less then
I'm thinking, Dublin, Hateley, Andy Gray, Peter Withe
I don't subscribe to penalizing players if they are injured or ill but paying Łthousands to players to continually sit on the sidelines seems an expensive way to operate a business - it's not like they can do other "work"  other than be ambassadors for their club  - or be the dressing room jester or Christmas Santa

I seem to remember Withey playing for England with a broken cheekbone. He's a tougher man than me.

He's 22 this month, I'm sure the club has kept a close eye on his injuries as he's been growing over the last few years.  If they don't think he can stay fit, I imagine he'll be off, but I'd have no problem with him staying beyond the summer as a backup/ impact sub. He won't be on big money, and has shown glimpses that if fit he can contribute. 

Given the money we've wasted on forwards in recent years, I'd have no issue throwing a few grand a week at keeping him.  It would be a relatively low-risk, high-potential-reward situation.

Yeah, frustrating as the injuries are I'd give him one more season to prove himself.

I agree. We need to remember that two years ago, it was barely possible for Hepburn-Murphy and Green to stay fit for three consecutive games. that isn't true anymore.

Perhaps Keinan will get over his problems as well.
