Huws Ruled Out for Rest of Season
Thursday, 14th Dec 2017 17:37
Midfielder Emyr Huws has been ruled out for the rest of the season having undergone knee surgery. The Wales international was subbed at half-time during Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Middlesbrough having suffered knee and hip knocks.
After the 24-year-old, who had only just returned to action following an achilles problem suffered in pre-season, saw a specialist it was revealed he had sustained a cartilage tear and he went under the knife today.
“Emyr has a complex tear of his lateral meniscus,” Blues physio Matt Byard told the club site.
“It has been repaired and the average recovery period is around six months which means he will obviously miss the rest of the season.”
Boss Mick McCarthy added: “It’s obviously very disappointing for us but even more so for Emyr. We know the quality he brings to the team and he will be missed."
The midfielder, who made three starts and two sub appearances after returning to action following his achilles injury, joined Town from Cardiff on a permanent basis in the summer for a fee understood to be approaching £1 million in the summer after a highly successful loan spell last season.

Going to say gut instinct = season over. We need our top players performing well and he is up there with Dids for me.
I guess the HOPEFUL me = Didsy back Sat, completes the rest of the season and Bishop can somehow stay fit, and revert back to 2014/15.
What horrible luck we've had with injuries this season - really fed up of it!

Bit of a blow.

thats a proper body blow!! get well soon Huws
Could it be written in the stars then for Mr Bishop to step up , step in and become the player we've all hoped for back to the Ted of a few seasons !!!
fingers, toes and eyes crossed that he can

A massive lose to the team.Get well soon Emyr.

Oh dear !!!.
As Currie says we have not had any luck with injuries,especially this season;and most of them have been long term.
Unfortunately,think he is the most expensive player on the Town books;being the first one who has cost in the region of £1m.
Wish him well for the future,on a personal as well as a professional basis !
More positively 'Colins' decision to sell him doesn't seem to have done Cardiff any harm,as last time I looked they were 2nd in the Championship !

Bad news for us, absolute horrid news for Huws. Gutted for him.
|jas0999 added 18:11 - Dec 14|
A real shame for club but more so the player. Seem to recall he suffered injury woes at Cardiff too. Hope he doesn’t become another Jonny Williams in terms of injury.
|hoppy added 18:14 - Dec 14|
Gutted for him. He showed in his few appearances how we'd missed him. Wish him every success in his recovery and look forward to him being ready and raring to go next pre-season.

Shame For him but he not played alot this season so don't think we will miss him
|trueblue97 added 18:25 - Dec 14|
i cant help but feel like this is all skuse’s fault.
|Wickets added 18:26 - Dec 14|
What a pity for him, it was the worry i can remember someone saying on the forum that his has always been hampered by injuries.

This is a real blow, and incredibly bad luck for Emyr.
For me, he was a shining light last season amongst a sea of mediocrity. Without Andre Dozzel available, I agree with others on here that this is time for the Bishop to make a series of starts. It will either be the making or breaking of his Town career. Hope it makes the young man.
Get well soon Emyr.

Real body blow that for our chances of the playoffs this season. Adetemi should be fit again soon. Big opportunity for Bish to Step up again.
|Mark added 18:37 - Dec 14|
Oh no! Just when we thought the wait was finally over and we'd get to see Emyr. Awful news for him, the club and the fans. Our central midfield really is cursed recently with the injuries to Huws, Dozzell, Adeyemi, Hyam...let's hope Bishop at least can get back.
|blues1 added 18:41 - Dec 14|
Real shame as his return had clearly improved things. So yes, 12th man, we will miss him. Trueblue97, either ur post is an attempt at humour or sarcasm , or if meant seriously, is the most ridiculous comment ever made on here.
|Surco72 added 19:02 - Dec 14|
Low possession football , kick and chase at high tempo phtsical teams always suffer more injuries as a rule . Add to that of signing players with a history of injuries and you get where we are paying again for players who contribute little playing time
|MrJase77 added 19:10 - Dec 14|
Absolutely gutted for us and for him. There just isn't any way we can get anywhere near getting out of this sh*tehole league without our best players. None. Just gutted.
|ArnieM added 19:23 - Dec 14|
What is it??
Bad luck that we keep getting so many injuries - long term ones at that?
Is it the training methods?
Or simply that we recruit players who have a suspect injury record and are therefore offloaded cheaply - hence why we can afford or get them in?
Whatever the likes of Bishop and Adeyemi need to get their fingers out and get up to speed or our season will be over cos I doubt Evans will be handing a departing manager any money this window.

Gutted for him & the team as he will be missed. Perhaps a chance for Bishop?
|warktheline added 19:41 - Dec 14|
Probably why Warnock let him go! Massive blow!
|tractorboybig added 19:47 - Dec 14|
off load him, what a waste of space and money
|BlueInBerks added 19:56 - Dec 14|
We will only get out of this league through the introduction of quality players either through the academy or spending money, any money. Our 'squad' will keep us in the Championship but only the likes of Garner, Waghorn, Huws, Webster etc will get us out. As someone else has said, boys step up...
|blueboy1981 added 20:19 - Dec 14|
....... really awful news this, for player and club - however, lets not dwell on the number of injuries this season, all clubs have them.
The realisation is only with the club concerned - otherwise hardly noticed, or concerned - so let's not think we are the only club affected by such bad luck.
The difference may well be that many clubs have adequate cover for such occurrences.
