According to Sky he's got a 'slightly twisted hip', which'll be why it's a manageable risk - not a major injury.
It is looking like another season of teams fighting over who gets to go down & 'start again' isn't it... I'd be curious to see what the final table would look like if bottom 10 of PL & top 10 of Championship played together for a season - Cardiff might finally get that promotion they've been nipping at the heels of for ages.
I'd like Villa to stay up but they're not looking like they've got it in them, and if Wigan don't finally go down I'll... well, I'll whinge and get annoyed but not do anything. That'll show them! I'd not expect (or want) Newcastle & Fulham to get dragged into it, I think and hope they're close to regaining some of their form of the last few seasons, and I'm hoping/expecting good things from Norwich for a couple of seasons to come. Which I guess leaves the final spot to Reading, Southampton, or QPR... I'm inclined pin it on Reading.
Where do these stories come from? Someone must be making it up.
I like the fact that it was a 'grade one' (what is the scale - is one the worst or the best) injury? The spin the blood and then re-inject the plasma....what?! I just hope for Daffy's sake that he doesn't end up playing when he is seriously injured.
I still think that Toon and Southampton will get sucked in. Mainly as I'm not convinced that lots of 'untried' purchases in Jan works very well and secondly that the sacking of the Saints manager and replacement with a man who can't speak English doesn't strike me as being overly sensible.

That article's ridiculous - the under headline blurb says that the injury won't force AVB into the transfer market, but the quotes say absolutely nothing about buying or selling players, not even an inference!
Grade one is the lightest http://www.physioroom.com/prevention/muscle_strains.php - it's a sprain (I was going to say a pulled muscle but that might be trivialising too much...). I've heard of the blood spinning before, I think it's meant to be to help recovery time; it's considered doping in some sports but in football it's just 'controversial'.
