Tino Livramento Set To Be Out For 9 Months
Tuesday, 26th Apr 2022 14:35
According to media reports Tino Livramento is set to miss not only the rest of this season, but the rest of the year after suffering a cruciate ligament injury to his knee in the draw at Brighton.
The Mail online is reporting that Tino Livramento will be out until early 2023 after being stretchered off against Brighton after going down in an innocuous challenge with Brighton midfielder Enock Mwepu .
The Saints man went down straight away and waved for assistance with the referee being alerted to his predicament by Mwepu himself.
He was given oxygen on the pitch and was clearly in some distress as he was stretchered off the pitch shortly before the break.
First indications are that it is a serious injury and he is likely to undergo surgery once the swelling has subsided and that it will be an 8-9 month lay off meaning that he is not likely to return until January 2023.
That is not as long a break as it sounds in that although he will miss the last four games of this season, the summer break will mean that the first three months of his lay off will mainly be the close season, but with the World Cup in Quatar meaning that the Premier League will be suspended after 11th November and not resume until Boxing Day, that will mean in essence he will only miss the first three months of next season of the 8 or 9 months he is likely to be out.
Hopefully age will be on his side here and he will be a quick healer and be ready to return around Xmas.
Luckily we are well served in the full back positions, with Kyle Walker Peters and Yan Valery able to play at right back and on the left Romain Perraud & upcoming teenager Thierry Small contesting that position.
Livramento had a knee issue earlier in the season, but that was the other leg and that has sine recovered and was not affecting his game

When Monday Comes #37 by wessex_exile
When Saturday Comes and we reach the end of a topsy-turvy season, much of which hasn’t been that much fun if I’m honest, though latterly considerably improved under Wayne Brown. If I can, I always like to do the first and last game of the season, but sadly a trip to Hartlepool just wasn’t on the cards, not if I actually wanted to get home again tonight, so I had to console myself with a pretty enjoyable trip to the JobServe last weekend – not quite the victory the U’s deserved over Walsall, but a great day out anyway. I know it’ll be too late for the Player of the Year awards, but wouldn’t it be nice to see a Freddie Sears hat-trick this afternoon to round off the season.

When Saturday Comes tomorrow, and I will be on a train heading over to God’s own county for my last U’s game of the season. That should have been last Friday’s trip to the Principality, but as posted elsewhere I was more than happy to be pre-booked to dog-sit Emma’s collie Reggie that night and had to be content with one of Nadine’s ‘downstreams’ on iFollow. Given both the performance and the result, whilst I was sorry to miss it in person, I was more than happy with how Friday night turned out in the end. Tomorrow will be a gathering of the clans for us, with at the last count at least 8, possibly more, of the family gathering for the match. Ironically, I’ll see them all again on Bank Holiday Monday for a family birthday, but I’ll be driving over for that one.

When Saturday Comes and the U’s have already given us a fantastic start to the weekend, with a stirring and well-deserved 2-1 victory at promotion-chasing Newport County. Yes, the Exiles had lost the previous three at home and are looking like they are going to bottle their chance for the play-offs, and yes with the U’s now safe technically we had little to play for, but don’t take anything away from this performance. If Wayne Brown is still being ‘interviewed’ for the full-time role as Colchester United manager, then last night was the equivalent of having an excellent incisive question of your own lined up for the interview panel.

When Saturday Comes and our Easter Bank Holiday programme is already underway, following a dismal 2-0 defeat at St James’ Park yesterday. It’s not so much the result that galls, in truth deep down I suspect we all thought it was going to be a difficult trip to get anything out of, it was the manner of that defeat. To say the U’s were lacklustre is a massive understatement – and it wasn’t as if it was down to Exeter City simply outplaying us, I didn’t think they were all that to be honest. I can cope with defeat, heaven knows the U’s have given me enough practice in recent years, but to go down without a whimper, relying on Man of the Match Sham to keep it from becoming a cricket score against an average Exeter City, was just dreadful.

When Saturday Comes and there was a time, not too long ago, when today’s game against the charmless Steve Evans and Stevenage was looking like it might be a relegation 6-pointer. Whilst we’re not out of the woods quite yet, back-to-back victories over Tranmere Rovers and Harrogate mean we go into this game knowing even if we were to slip up against Stevenage, we’ll still be 8pts plus goal difference ahead of them, and only five games left to play. Still, let’s not dwell on negatives, because three wins on the bounce will be the confidence-booster we’ll need ahead of the tough trip on Good Friday to St James’ Park.
