'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Looks Like Fabio's Got Glass Legs

Two starts, two injuries - it's a record that Louis Saha would be proud of. But it's not him or Hargreaves raking up the strains and tears again: it's Fabio who's showing the worrying signs.

To put it simply: looks like he's got glass legs. He started two games at United - both in the FA Cup, against Spurs and against Everton - and had to be brought off because of injury in both.

Now add to the fact that his debut was delayed because of an injury and you might see why we have reasons to worry that his supposedly fabulous talent won't have a chance to show itself at Old Trafford...

No word on his latest injury yet but even if it proves to be a minor one I'm still afraid that his career could be blighted with fitness problems. Fingers crossed I'm wrong, for he's a spectacular talent, of that there is no doubt.

i share the same fears man...i'm tired of getting players that don't seem to heal...but in his case especially a young player who has been touted as a wonderful talent not getting his chance because of injury would be a shame a huge loss

must be such a blight for some players, they have the skill but not the body to cope.

It's a shame to see a player with enormous potential having to suffer in this manner everytime.Hopefully a bit more time in the gym could help him.
