Sad Times For Kieron Dyer

We were very sad to hear Kieron Dyer will now miss most of the season after presumably breaking his leg in last night’s West Ham vs Bristol Rovers game. Craig Bellamy scored a brace to take the Hammers through.

It’s only 10 days since Kieron’s move to West Ham to be near his family in Ipswich, and this injury has nothing to do with his previous hamstring problems – it’s just the worst of luck for the player, who has been plagued with injuries throughout his career.


Kieron Dyer – suffered broken leg against Bristol Rovers last night

His new manager Alan Curbishley was devastated for Kieron as he talked last night after the game:

“We are so devastated for him. I can’t put it into words really. “The game was immaterial after that. You put a strong side out and you wonder why sometimes.”

“We are delighted we have got through, but after 10 or 15 minutes the game was immaterial.” “Everyone in the dressing room is really down about it.”

Dyer was injured during a challenge by Rovers left-winger Joe Jacobson, which many thought to be a reckless challenge.

Curbishley went on:

“I think the Bristol Rovers player has got to be very disappointed with his tackle.” “As far as I can see he has lashed out after losing the ball and caught Kieron in a difficult area.

“Wouldn’t you be angry? The players could see he lashed out. But it is immaterial what the referee does after you get a serious injury like that.”

Bristol Rovers manager Paul Trollope insisted the incident was not a deliberate attempt to cause injury.

West Ham finally won the game 2-1 to get into the third round draw but it looks like the West Ham players are all hurting for Kieron this morning – this is just terrible luck for the Ipswich born player.

We wish Kieron a speedy recovery and hope he can get back into action before the end of the season.

    No matter what people say of Dyer, he has had terrible luck, If he hadnt had half of his injuries he could have been some player. You have to feel for the guy and I for one wish him a speedy recovery!!!

    I could not agree more. I know a few stupid Newcastle fans will be smiling about this, but I just feel really sorry for the poor guy.

    No body deserves this type of bad luck. We all know that Dyer has not endeared himself to the newcastle faithful, but the injury problems he has had are boardering on suicidal for him. This could happen to any one of us in real life suffer injury after injury which prevents us from working. But apart from not working and getting well paid, there is not much you can do when on crutches. Suddenly you realise that our society is geared up for ambient people, not for those with a difficulty walking. But getting fit after a long lay off and then breaking your leg in two places only 2 weeks after starting a new job, that is horrendous bad luck.
    I dont like KD but i wish him a speedy recovery.

    Here’s wishing Keiron a speedy recovery

    He spent many years at Newcastle and on his day could be brilliant; i.e. Southampton away in FA Cup, etc….

    Get well soon bonny lad!

    was pleased to see the guy go but i do feel for the lad..was potentially a hot prospect, maybe even a wonderkid in the past and due to injuries he couldnt live up to his reputation..but now he finally had the chance for a decent go for an england place and this has happened.. i hope he recovers soon and is able to put on that england shirt and do our country proud..good luck Kieron!!

    While I admit to not being his greatest fan, no player deserves a broken leg and some comments that have been made about Dyer since last night by so called Newcastle fans are out of order.

    With his previous injury problems it will take a strong character to come back from this but fingers crossed he will in time.

    Can’t stand Dyer but feel gutted for him. No body deserves this and he is one unlucky guy.
    I wish him well and good luck for as speedy a recovery as possible.

    “I think the Bristol Rovers player has got to be very disappointed with his tackle.” “As far as I can see he has lashed out after losing the ball and caught Kieron in a difficult area.

    Bollocks, the tackle wasn’t even that bad – a little late maybe but that is about it.

    wow how ironic is this, we spend all last year getting him fit again, and when it looks like his injuries are finally behind him, he goes and breaks his leg lmao. was always a fan of dyer and disappointed to see him go but hey, how good is that 7 mill looking now?

    Im with Snake, Dyer wouldnt shed a tear if we got relegated, I couldnt give a toss if his season/career is over.

    I only found out about it on Skysportsnews this mornin, just after they told me Sunderland got beat 3-0 and Dean Whitehead is out for 6 months. I think I might put the lottery on tonight cos its been a mint day so far!

    At least he will have more experince of sitting on his ass counting his money,he can say Good Bye to his england career now.Which means Milner will take his place or Theo Walcott who were both awsome for the under 21s the other nite. But i know its harsh to kieron but at least he will spend time wwith his family now.

    Has anybody worked out how much Dyer has made for not playing football?
    ie…”on the sick” must be millions…pretty dodgy looking tackle…typical winger, oh well never mind.
    I’m not in the feel sorry for him brigade….he’s made his own luck.
    I feel sorry for the Sevilla left back who collapsed and died and the guy who got ferried to a Cardiac unit in one of the cup games last night.

    Dyer’s career is now realistically over. Even though we might all dislike him I’m sure the absolute heartbreak he’s feeling now is not something we should be taking delight in.

    At the same time, as a Newcastle fan, I’m very relieved he’s left the club and represents money in the back as opposed to an injury/personality/financial liability.

    Best of luck Kieron.

    With all due rerspect, i’m sick and tired of wishing Kieron Dyer a speedy recovery (no matter how the injury happend) and couldn’t really care less if he never played again – he certainly wouldn’t be short of a few quid thanks to his 8 years lying on the NUFC traetment table.

    As for West Ham, they deserve everything they get (£20m worth of players knackered) by the way they avoided relegation last season!

    Curbs can certainly spot em…he must be opening a sports injury clinic as a sideline……Upson, Llundberg, Faubert, Parker and now Dyer all crocked.
    Eggy will be crapping himself, I’m sure he’ll get a sack full of sympathy cards from Blades fans.’

    Wouldnt wish this on anyone – on the other hand if McClaren is looking for someone to fill a space in the England squad , he need look no further than James Milner. The timing is perfect for him – great form and a string of England matches coming up
    He would shine brighter than Gazza did in Italia…..

    although keiron didnt deserve that specific injury, he has only him self to blame for other injuries, he always was out on the town drinking, and if you do that you are going to get injured more than the players that dont treat their bodies like bar driptrays, wish the lad all future health, but your bones would have been stronger if you had drank ur daily milk instead of beer!!! haha

    What a refreshing change – us selling a player who then gets injured!
