Tommie Hoban
« on: September 26, 2018, 09:23:58 AM »
Out till January at the earliest.

Was supposed to have shoulder surgery a fortnight ago but was allowed to postpone it until his heavily pregnant partner had the baby which she did last Thursday. Hadn't had the op as of yesterday but having it "this week" and will be staying down south to be monitored by Watford during his recovery.

The injury occurred after he scored against Hibs. I'm presuming this means in the after goal celebrations when the goalscorer gets swarmed/jumped on by the other players.....I don't think tapping home from a yard out would damage anyones shoulder. I'm surprised managers allow this to go on tbh.....only surprised more injuries don't occur during goal celebrations. It's a needless risk.

Confirmed that he injured his cruciate against St Mirren on Saturday and will be out until the end of the season.

Shame as he looked a really good player but just made of glass.

I bloody hope we are paying him on a pay per play basis.

Nobody near him when his knee went.

Career finished I would say.

I doubt he's on pay per play but player insurance will kick in and cover payments after a certain amount of time out.

Sadly I concur that this will probably be a career ender

You'd hope so DD.

Massive shame for the guy, seemed very talented in the glimpses we saw of him.

That's a shame. I couldn't make the game on Saturday, but saw the clip when he went down injured, you could see the poor loon was in pain, never good to see.

Fingers crossed he can come back and kick on with his career, sadly though it won't be with us.
