There's the summer transfer window down the drain.

I'll be interested to hear the extent of the injury. He'll be lucky if it was an MCL sprain or the like.. hoping for no tears or ruptures.

I feel bad for BK, get well soon.

Yep.  Beginning to feel we are cursed!

I think it's about time we modified our posts with the news of a new player who has great promise.  So,"Please don't be shit" replaced by, "Please don't get a serious injury keeping you out for months"

What are the odds on Gerrard being gone in 2 months?  Evens possibly?  It's a fair prediction I think.

From the OS.

Aston Villa can confirm Boubacar Kamara suffered a knee ligament injury during last Friday’s victory over Southampton.

The midfielder sustained the damage during the first half of our encounter with Saints and was replaced by Douglas Luiz shortly before half-time.

As a result of the injury, Kamara was forced to withdraw from the French national squad for this round of UEFA Nations League fixtures and has begun a rehabilitation programme.

I wish they would be more transparent than that.. what ligament and to what extent?

I think it's a fair bet and I don't think it buys him any extra time because he didn't give himself a buffer of points whilst he had Kamara available. I'm absolutely certain that the world cup will be the trigger point for lots of clubs to decide whether to stick or twist and, as things stand, I think we'll twist. If results improve between now and then and we push into the top half he might save himself and if we have a bad run they might jump early but much more likely is we muddle along to the 'break' with 15-20 points and firmly entrenched in the bottom half.

There's the World Cup break as well  which is maybe what Sid meant as we are not playing anyway.

It's typical of our luck. Hopefully Clive and Marvelous can step in. I think he'll put Luiz back in there though, especially now we have his corners as an added threat. Not letting him go looks like a good move.

The irony of all of this is that Chuck would have got the game time he so desperately wanted

We just can't get a break can we?

Cash
Digne
Carlos
Kamara

4 of our starting XI out for some time.

You can't account for a glut of injuries on this scale.

Having said that, signing Dendoncker could be  seen as a genius move if he comes in and does a good job covering for Kamara. Ditto with Ludwig Augustinnson and Digne.

Oftimes it's the "squad" players that prove how good your transfer programme has been. It's relatively easy to pick out big name players who've got a proven record (Kamara and Carlos were known quantities who we knew would improve our starting XI).

Sniffing out potential "performers" who fly under the radar is much more difficult. Have you signed an average/below average journeyman, or have you picked out an uncut gem from the pile of players on the market?

Chambers has been excellent when called on.

Let's hope Dendoncker and Ludwig are too.
