Ireland In Arm Break?

Ireland In Arm Break?

Paul Lambert doesn't know the extent of Stephen Ireland's injury yet, but it's suspected he has a broken arm.

Speaking to the Birmingham Mail before the player left in a sling, Lambert explained he would be going for an x-ray either tonight or tomorrow to determine the extent of the problem.

'It's his arm he's having a problem with at the minute. I don't know if it would be a fracture, that's the fear of it. I think there will be an x-ray and the doctor and physios will let me know what's happening.'

With everyone else starting to return to training it'll be a blow to Lambert if Ireland is going to be out for a period of time.

i ve been watching or playing football for almost 50 years and I cannot recall any one incidence of anyone breaking their arm - not even Norman Hunter knew how to do that - can anyone remember him going to ground in the first half ???

Stinks to me too, malacaxeta. I suspect yet another massive row at HT, fwiw.

***** Off Ireland, my patience has run dry.

malacaxeta you must be playing / watching a different game to me then mate. Never seen a player with their wrist in plaster? I've seen loads of arm fractures from falls and collisions

never see ireland fall in the match? how many times did ireland blocked a shot??? he was running around winning balls and breaking up soton's play. this is a massive blow

Sorry to say to some.................the subs came on and Ireland went off............we was ok before this or maybe you watched an other game.Not saying he is the best but he gave a lot until we lost him......................Lambert got it wrong at half time....................

Ref arm fractures - examples would be nice. Never seen a player with a plaster on. no - I could be wrong but like the sharpened studs, they made that illegal. I tend not to watch them if theyre not on a pitch, working. That would be stalking. I said watching and playing......Google it. Ryan Giggs and Drogba in the last three years (dont follow them - and Giggs probably did his doing the sexgame) I think we should make goalies exempt - so that disqualifies Craig Gordon of Sunderland. By "fall" I meant arm breaking type fall. I rest my case.

If he's out for a period, I think we'll miss him. We are far too lightweight still.

malacaxeta - re the armbreak example, i remember gazza breaking his arm on george boatengs head! Here is a link if you do not remember it, I thought ireland played really well yesterday, loads of running and plenty of challenging this break could have happened at any point. hopefullky its not too bad.
