How Do We Solve a Problem Like Lennon?
Ladies and gentlemen, can I please have your attention. I’ve just been handed an urgent and horrifying news story. I need all of you, to stop what you’re doing and listen…
In other news, Aaron Lennon’s broken nether regions will require further inspection today. According to those in the know, a second tear has been located, which, rather troublingly, caused the lightning-heeled wingstress to keel over in training on Monday. Harry Redknapp, in all his wisdom, said this for Sky Sports:
“He was close to getting fit, but has had a bit of a setback.
“Hopefully it should not put him back much from where he was, and he could still be fit in a couple of weeks.”
“At first the diagnosis was he could be back in four or five weeks but you never know with these groin problems, they can take time and he has had a couple of setbacks.’’
Well that’s a kick in the groin- to excuse the unfortunate phrasing. I guess we’ll find out later the measure of things; with any luck it’s just precautionary. As the season reaches its turbulent apex, his is a face we could do with having around. Otherwise we’ll be asked to install yet more faith in the talents of a reinvigorated David Bentley. And I’m not sure if we’re all quite ready for that.
Come back soon, little man.
