O'Neill May Never Play Again
The Telegraph report that Gary O'Neill has been told he only has a 50% chance of playing again after Nigel Reo-Coker's two footed challenge last weekend.
The Telegraph say that the ligament was ripped from O’Neil’s ankle in the challenge, which was not even given as a foul by the ref. The paper say that O'Neill is facing at least eight months out, if he recovers at all, and is now considering suing Reo-Coker.
Reo-Coker won the ball in the challenge, which Halsey obviously deemed fair. However Reo-Coker lunged in with his studs showing and I remember thinking at the time that it was a career threatening challenge and that the ex-West Ham player should have been shown a straight red.
