Striker? Injured? Surely not
Popular striker Lomano LuaLua has been ruled out for up to three weeks after an operation on an ear infection, sustained after taking a knock on the head at Liverpool. One would presume damage to the ears would affect a person's sense of balance, although he went on to score in that game - but I thought there was something a bit wonky in his celebration. Honest.
Thankfully, Yakubu and Kamara are now fighting back to fitness, the former coming on as a substitute against Arsenal at the weekend. But with the Congo captain turning in a man of the match performance on Sunday and starting to find the back of the net again, it's a bitter pill to swallow with such a busy festive period ahead.
