Transfer Targets Injured

Transfer Targets Injured

Martin O'Neill has warned fans not to read anything into the announcements that James Milner and Luke Young are injured.

Speaking on the Official Site ahead of tonight's match against Benfica, O'Neill said categorically that nothing should be read into the 'late' injuries, they are just unfortunate for both players who would've otherwise figured in the Guadiana Cup.

'James had a back injury and he had a bit of acupuncture but it didn't do the trick. So he was training right up until yesterday.

'Luke was a surprise. He was last off the training pitch today, doing some extra work and then presented with a thigh problem.'

O'Neill also commented:

'If they had been fit this evening they would have participated in the game. Both are now unlikely to be fit for Benfica.'

This will no doubt fuel the conspiracy theorists, well it has, I've already seen the thread on the forum, but I wouldn't get too carried away with the 'late breaking news' of injury.

It happens, you move on...the question is will they play in the next one?

We arnt the only club beye has played for? I never liked him at newcaslte and he was only brought for cover which we didnt need in the end, L.Young is a better player and cuellar is better defensively i dont care what anyone says. And steve maybe that is the case with milner yeah good thinking but considering we are losing 3-0 at half time it may have been good to play him if he was fit haha, its all heskeys fault he starts and we play 442 and we are getting hammered LOL
