Johnson Breaks Ankle

Recommended Posts

From the Official Site:

 

Everton top scorer Andy Johnson was stretchered off midway through the second half of today's game against Wigan.

 

The striker was taken to Wigan Infirmary after being withdrawn from the action as a precaution.

 

He is believed to have sustained an ankle injury.

 

The full extent of the problem will be known on Monday, although the striker must now be considered a major doubt for the Merseyside derby in a fortnight.

 

evertonfc.com will bring you the latest news as soon as it is available.

 

How long does it take to perform an X-Ray surely one will be done today and then a doctor would clearly be able to see a break or a fracture. It always puzzles me how at this club the results are never known till tomorrow, surely they have an idea rather than suggesting it's simply an ankle injury heck Sky and BBC have both stated he has a suspected broken angle not that you would know if you check the official site.

Was at the game at the JJB today. AJ went down just in front of us and it did not look good at all...he was in a tremendous amount of pain. Hopefully it was nothing too serious, but it looked it.

 

Incidentally, it looked like Kirkland gave him a push in the back causing him to fall, but I have not seen a replay, was this the case in which we should have been awarded a penalty?

""Sky and BBC have both stated he has a suspected broken ankle""

 

...

 

The operative word being..................Suspected.

 

Nobodys said he has, and nobody has said he has'nt, Good news if you ask me so lets wait for the official medical report.

Yea, lets see what the facts are, and go from there.

 

I seem to remember everybody was fearing the worst with Cahill, saying he was going to be out for the rest of the season and he made a speedy recovery. Fingers crossed, again!

hopefully we will know something in a couple of minutes time. Sky Sports will probably mention something about our game during half time of Arsenal and Manure.

""dont ask me why but ive just got a feelin that Anechebe and Beatts can form abit of a partnership.""

........

 

 

Dont think he'll do it, with all our midfielders back to fitness he'll revert to 4-5-1. Some tough games coming up.

I think we'll see more of Vaughan, whose a better prospect than Victor anyway, although a different type of player, more like Johnson

I feel sick for AJ but i think it may force moyes into some much needed changes, i don't think we play to his strengths alot of the time anyway, he is not a lone striker like he was being played today.Victor and Vaughan should be given a chance.

Surely, the powers that be at Everton must know what the damage is, if not the extent. It only takes a couple of xrays to discover whether something is broken or not, therefore, it may well be that it is not broken, and that the medical team is waiting for swelling/bruising to subside so they can get a more accurate idea of what the damage really is.

 

I may be hoping beyond all hope here...but it is not an unreasonable thought I dont think!

incidentally, its interesting that Everton have made comments about the condition of the pitch at the JJB today. It did look a bit cut up and a bit boggy and marsh like - which, although they were not alleging at this point, may be a reason for AJ's injury. More likely Kirkland pushing him in the back though in my opinion...but I will see on MOTD a little later on!

Moyes did, he said it could have been a factor in his injury

Let's look for the silver lining to this cloud, maybe this injury will force the boards hand and prompt the purchase of a tried and tested striker?.
