I don't see how a broken arm will take him out until bloody October.

Fuck. I've seen pro wrestlers break their arms and they are back putting people through tables and falling off of wooden rings into concrete floors 3 weeks later. And that's in a profession that uses.

Probably a bad comparison but a pro wrestler uses his arms in his profession way more than a football player. And does way more insane shit as well
MY GOD HES BROKEN HIM IN HALF

Just so bizarre one of our players getting hurt- and subsequently missing games- while on international duty.

This Youtube channel makes great highlight reels for our players, so many nice goals from Sonny.
Thank fk we didn't sell him this time last year.

He scored some absolute crackers. Don't understand the people who wanted him gone after his first season with us, he was always capable of producing seasons like the one he's just had with us.

I wonder in the history of the Premiership, how many players have won two player of the month awards in a season and not get into the team of the season?

Not many player can hit it one touch like that, on his off foot, after 50-yard dash...but we knew that already.
That's the trouble with football, top players that make the hard things look so simple get slagged off for the things they aren't or can't do, rather than lauded for the things they can.

We're all guilty of it to some extent but we have amassed a real squad of players that can play different ways and in different formations/systems and a manager that can fit those players in when needed.

Long may it continue(y)

I'm just genuinely happy for him after him not being involved that much the last few games.
2 goals this season so far, one vs Dortmund and one with 'pool, and not playing meaningful minutes in between yet popped out in big games like this...

Yah, long may it continues.

I think he's probably the most under rated player we have. He's a right fkin handful and knows where the back of the net is.
Put it this way, I bet defenders see his name on line up and think oh fk. Not going to get a minutes rest today.
Yes I really rate him.

I've never seen a player look so dejected at being subbed as Son did on Sunday
He looked knackered. From his work rate, not a surprise. A great player to start, a great player to come on when called upon. I just like him so much. His goals scored were always fantastic strikes too.
