    I know he was injured but he's not come back the same player. Fingers crossed it is just a (very) slow recovery.

    I agree, the only thing is i do not think he has played that many games since his first injury so he may just need a run of games to prove his fitness. To be honest it took Kane a while after returning from injury to show us his best lets hope Wanyama can do the same.

    Very true. I think Kane has only looked back to peak mobility in the last few months (before his latest injury), and I still think his shooting is not as clinical as it was before. It is improving though. I hope this latest injury doesn't set him back too much.

    IMHO he was our MVP in the last season at the Lane.

    He needs to be given a chance to get back to fitness and form. Amazed at how quickly everyone had just thrown him on the scrap heap here!

    Sandro was never the same after his knee injury. I think that position is so demanding on your peripheral movement that its hard to get back to the top level.

    Very true and it may be the same for Wanyama, however i do not think he has been given a run of games to prove if he can.

    Fingers crossed. Medical techniques are constantly improving but it feels like a long time ago since he smashed that rocket in the back of the net in front of the Kop.

    I don't think we will see the Wanyama of old this season, next season, I hope to see him back to the beast he is.

    I'm pretty sure Wanyama's was knee related just maybe not an ACL injury like Sandro had. Seems muscular injuries follow knee injuries though. Hamstrings etc and all affected. My hamstring never felt the same after my ACL surgery. They use a section of it to create the new knee ligament.

    I think thats mostly because he has been out sooooo long, gad a few false starts and been out again, it seems like he is never coming back.

    Id love him back and firing on all cylinders, but I do harbour that "I think he might actually be broken..." doubt

    They take the graft from a different place depending if you are a football or rugby player - I remember getting asked by the surgeon about that. I think rugby they take it from the quads and football from the hamstrings

    I have a complete hamstring that aches and gets tight working harder to compensate for my damaged ACL. Even with surgery and rehab, a damaged ACL is never as strong. The hamstring ends up doing more to help keep the knee stable and becomes more vulnerable to injury or tightness. It's an awful part of the body to get injured as it affects everyday mobility.
