Joe Kinnear talked about our 23 year-old Nigerian striker Oba Martins today, and it looks like Oba will be out another 4 weeks.
Oba Martins – could return at Fulham on November 9th
On Martins, Kinnear talked to the Evening Chronicle today:
“He had good contacts in his days with Inter Milan and he has been to Italy for a scan on his knee injury, but his situation has not changed and the initial six weeks forecast of how long he will be out looks about right.”
Martins picked up the injury a couple of weeks ago, so it looks like Oba could be back by around November 9, with the trip to Fulham his likely comeback game.
It’s a little depressing that we have so many of our good players on the unjury list right now, but that’s why we should have signed more players in the summer.
Joey Barton will be back after the Manchester City game and both Guttierrez and Beye will make that home game against City, so it’s probably not as bad as it could be.
Oh well, only 84 days to go to the transfer window opening up again in January – but it does seem that it would be so much better not to have a transfer window at all, doesn’t it?
