    Maybe in the future but if we really want to compete with City/Liverpool we are going to have to sign a World Class centre back.

    Devastated for Bellerin! He has been very good for us. Really changed my opinion on him. He will be a huge miss! He has really matured this season. I think we should look to bring in a RB to cover. Deandre Yedlin is one I see as more realistic. Cedric at Southampton could be another one. Wan Bissaka will cost a lot.

    Just don't trust Niles and Lichsteiner. We need a speedy player.

    Bad news I'm afraid. Bellerin out for the rest of the season (and possibly the beginning of next).

    3 serious injuries in a season. Has to be more than just bad luck, surely? And they're all the same sorts of injuries.

    I've been rehabbing my own injury lately. Had an ACL and Miniscus injury that required surgery.

    You can see the injury happen in slow mo-tion. It seems to snap while he is running. He's not turning or twisting - which is normally how ACL tears happen. (Foot gets stuck in ground while turning)

    There was almost certainly some previous damage to the ligament. He'll get good treatment but it's a crap inury to get - Most likley they will have to replace the ACL with a peice of his hamstring as it looks like a complete 100% tear.
