I’m not sure anyone expected Sheffield Wednesday striker Gary Hooper to feature in any capacity in tonight’s hosting of Leeds United at Hillsborough.

Having returned to training previously and begun building up his fitness, including a run out at Under 23 level, Luhukay had previously confirmed that there was another niggle for the 30-year-old to contend with and that we were again being cautious with him, but speaking in advance of the Championship game this evening he explained that Hooper was now set for a second opinion and that has obviously given rise to connotations within the fanbase.

Admitting that he hadn’t trained this week owing to the pain he was suffering, fans have obviously worried about it being the worst news but hopefully, that won’t prove to be the case.

It does give rise to the question will we ever see him fit again given the length of time he’s been out as given the wage he’s on, even if he gets semi-fit for January there would be a strong line of thinking that we should look to save money and loan him out so he can get fully fit elsewhere and that’s certainly not unheard of in the game.

  • I’ve got an appointment this afternoon at the doctors but, if I’d have known, I could just have stuck my symptoms on here and got several experts to give me a diagnosis – second opinions not even necessary.

    Just for information, I’m already retired, so you can rule that out of the diagnosis.

  • In the normal workplace if people are off sick for more than 6 months, their salary is reduced by 50%.
    Does the same apply to footballers I wonder. If so we could be saving a shed load of money.
