The injury to Diame is the latest in a long list of cruel injuries blows. Carroll is out for his second extended stretch. Collison has been out all season. Diarra hasn't kicked a ball in anger yet and I forgot he was at the club! Benayoun has barely played. Demel spends as much time on the treatment table as on the pitch. The squad isn't big as it is, and we are being cruelly stretched by one injury after another.
It always promised to be a difficult December. Now it threatens to be torture!
