Collison Out For Season.
Collison has been ruled out for the rest of the season apparently, needing another operation on that troublesome knee. I fear that poor Carlton also needs an op and is being unfairly criticised for risking his World Cup place by playing through pain. He is definitely not moving with complete freedom and is regularly clutching at that knee after a strong challenge. Being Scouse Cheats, to nearly quote Ferguson, I wouldn't be surprised to see Carragher and co "testing" that knee with a few well directed kicks next Monday!
There's still no news on Ilunga. What's going on there then? Nor on Diamanti. After the poor showing of Stanislas against Sunderland, we could do with both Ilunga and Diamanti returning for the Liverpool game. There is no way that Diamanti will start on the left for as long as Spector is at left back, so to see the mercurial Italian again, we need Ilunga back.
On the subject of Collison, this may be good news in the long run. It would explain why the lad's form dipped (added to the death of his father) and offers the hope that he will "come again" next season. Last year he looked a special talent, this year he has looked run of the mill. Hopefully an op on that knee and an extended rest will get him back to his best.
Come On You Where Are Ilunga And Diamanti Irons!
