Martin Laursen Blow

Looks like Martin Laursen's initial optimism might not have born fruit.

Laursen said yesterday he was hoping to be out for no more than three weeks but Martin O'Neill has confirmed the Danish international defender has picked up medial ligament damage and could be out for between 10 weeks and anything up to three months.

'Martin is going to be out for some considerable time - we could be talking ten weeks or maybe three months. It's a real blow for him and of course for us. Martin has done well this season and he'd worked so hard to get back to full fitness.'

I'm sure all at Vital Villa send Martin all our best wishes, he is a fighter, he'll be back.

Gutted for the guy. Let's hope he gets back quickly. How much bad luck can one person have?

Classy player. With a squad as small as ours we could do without these injuries. My sympathies to Martin, he's worked hard to come back and clearly revelled in playing for us. We could use him back soon.

Gutted Laursen is a world class player just as he got his place back, but the character he's show makes me believe that he will be back as strong as ever.

It's a massive blow for him and for us as he was just starting to show the form that made AC MIlan buy him in the first place. Luckily we are well stocked for centre backs so we should be able to cope.

Really sorry for the player, he has shown once fully fit he's awesome I bet Mellberg found a quiet corner and had a good cry. Losing him is bad enough but for 3 months, it means money may have to be allocated elsewhere because Ridgewell and Cahill aren't up to a full season playing well enough, not yet anyway

A very serious blow indeed, both for player and club.

Poor guy. Was so impressive when he had played as well.
