Cotter Out For the Season After Surgery
Monday, 24th Feb 2020 13:25

Right-back Barry Cotter has been ruled out for the season having undergone surgery for a ruptured adductor.

The 21-year-old suffered the injury late on in the U23s’ 2-2 home draw with Watford a fortnight ago.

Cotter, who revealed that he had gone under the knife on Instagram on Sunday, has made two senior starts this season, both in cups, and scored the winning penalty in the Leasing.com Trophy tie shoot-out at Peterborough.

The Irish U21 call-up, who joined the Blues from Limerick in January 2018, is contracted to Town until the end of June 2021 with the club having an option for a further season.

They planed it? Was it a surgeon or a carpenter?

We need to shift a lot of dead wood in the summer, this lad hasn't had much of a chance: I'd rather keep him his one more season and see if he can step up with the pressure on.
Get most of the old pros off the books, hopefully just sell one young start, and go again. Unfortunately the only young star shining right now is Downes, and he's 100% Captain material if PL can convince Chambers to step down.

How many black cats have we run over recently?

Yet ANOTHER serious injury requiring lengthy rehab . We sure go have a high % of these at this Vlub IMHO.

Maybe we should just turn Portman Road into a hospital.

MrTown....if you don't know who Barry Cotter is, then you ain't no fan old pal!
Pecker.....he's a fringe player, so on a quiet news day, perhaps this is news?

Today's footballers are supposed to be so much fitter than players from the past , that used to manage to play every game, smoke and drink and party in Town with the fans on a Saturday night... makes you wonder

Rob: the difference would be that they probably would have kept on playing through an injury like this and then probably do more long-term damage in the end.

Is this a miss print should it be Harry Potter .

Linkboy13 added 23:36 - Feb 24
If they found out what was wrong with his head we would have a decent player on our hands. Probably explains why no body will take him on loan.

Thought we were signing the new Neymar when he arrived. Such a big disappointment.

He’s got loads of natural ability hence Celtic wanted him in the summer . Unfortunately as we all know natural ability is not enough . All he needs to do is to learn some humility to replace ego and arrogance

Celtic wanted him in the summer but not in the spring autumn or winter.
