The only article of any interest. Questions that weren't asked....what was the virus?. Any other famous sports people ever been affected by it? What were the outcomes? For those not at the stoke match, is he up to kicking a ball? Is this a question of the virus has completely healed or is it still present at all? Once it is cleared up is this something that is cured forever or has it got a nasty habit of returning? The problem appears to have affected a nerve......does the club know if there is any permanent damage or is a full recovery the likely outcome? If it's the latter, at what stage is guidetti at now, when is he likely to be fit enough to be tried out in eds/reserve games? Most players have a timetable for managing injuries. Due to the nature of this particular one, platt seems very reticent on time scales. If the end of the season is missed he has effectively said anytime between now and august. That's eight months. Could he be more specific? When he gets back, will he be able to resume his career to the same level as before or could he become the next michael johnson?
These are the sorts of questions city fans want answers to and it is a terrible shame that the best the men journalist has managed to elucidate from david platt s little more than the usual david plattitudes that tell us precisely nothing except he might be back and we don't know when. Shocking journalism, especially considering that we have a player who could save us 15m+ in the transfer market and men are showing as much interest in him as they are in whether or not the press room will be serving cheese or ham sandwiches tomorrow!
