Of course he will be. Hes a speedster and they can get muscle injuries that linger. When he was fit, albeit briefly, he looked superb. I think we forced him back too quickly given how shit things were becoming and it worsened things after his injury vs Everton.
Tricky things , Hamstrings and when they start going they tend to recur (see Owen Michael). He is pretty Young to be getting this severe a Hamstring problem.

Wasn't the second injury a quad?  He reminds me of Jason Robinson, the egg chaser, who had shortened hamstrings that allowed him to accelerate like stink but massively shortened his career.

They were both quads Everton and City.
So no need to fret about his hamstrings.
Plus his previous injury record is fine.

So he arrived with a hamstring injury?  I'm certain that after the first new injury I was not too suprised that he got a quad injury as the transfersnce isn't too rare if you don't rehab well enough.

What of Bailey when he is back fit how is he to fit in front 3 of Coutinho, Ings and Watkins I guess one will have to be rested and rotated.
For me Bailey has to be in the team for pace alone .
Stretches teams and really impressive when he can get going danger to opposing defenders

Hopefully the lesser spotted Leon will be back in full flight soon.

He played professionally from 17 to 33, not a bad career length.

I hope he comes back soon. His song at Palace was great fun.

Just plain unfortunate with these thigh muscle injuries. He'll be fine once he's through this rehab.

You do. As long as you don't resent it.
