ToffeeLinks 20/11/2012: Injury See-Saw in Midfield and a Tim Cahill Link

Chris Brunskill

Just as Gibson seems to be getting into form, Phil Neville goes in to surgery and is out for two months.

Our depth at midfield is very thin. Things became worse when Darron GuGibson was injured in what turned out to be a long term break. Just as he comes back (he played for the U-21 team this week), we start losing more players. Kevin Mirallas is still out with an injury as well. This leaves us dangerously thin. Luckily we had a players out on loan that just ended...
