It has now been confirmed that Curtis Davies will miss the rest of the season after rupturing his Achilles tendon in today’s 1-1 (CHEATED) draw against Arsenal.

After his shocking debut against Leicester in the Cup, wherein he labelled himself a ‘Pub Player’, Davies has been very little short of a revelation since replacing Zat Knight in the centre of defence.

The injury was sustained just before half time, and the player will be undergoing surgery tonight but it’s expected he wil be on the sidelines for the next 6 months.

Speaking on the official site, Martin O’Neill said:

‘Curtis has ruptured his Achilles tendon and he’s going to have an operation tonight. We’re really disappointed for him.

‘He’s been doing really well and that’s a sickener. But he’ll be back. He misses the rest of the season and it’s really cruel because he’s been doing splendidly. It would have been nice to have won the game for him.’

The final sentance says everything, but no let’s not forget Ref’s can’t be biased. Which of course just leaves incompetent open as a choice.
