Knee injury woe for Neville

Passing of the torch? Neville and Rodwell against Arsenal earlier this season.

via Yahoo!UK/Eurosport:

Everton captain Phil Neville damaged knee ligaments in Sunday's 2-1 defeat at Fulham and could face a "lengthy lay-off", the club have confirmed on their website.

Neville was stretchered from the field and club physiotherapist Mick Rathbone confirmed that the player could now be out for some time.

"An MRI scan on Monday morning has confirmed our fears and it has revealed that Phil has damaged ligaments at the back of his knee," Rathbone told

So Rodwell becomes a viable, and cheap, middie. He's been playing and producing well for his price, but now he's seemingly a sure starter. Though to be fair to him, he's been a sure starter all season.

Programming note:  The Monday Morning Manager will likely be an evening affair today.
