Bad luck for Findley

MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICAN ABROAD] American striker Robbie Findley has yet to play a game for English club Nottingham Forest but could be sidelined for up to 12 weeks -- the rest of the League Championship season -- with a thigh injury suffered in practice.

The 25-year-old Findley was signed by Forest from Real Salt Lake on a free transfer but had to wait for his work permit to be approved and only was cleared to play last week.

He signed a two-and-a-half-year contract to play at the City Ground.

Another Forest player, midfielder Guy Moussa, suffered a thigh injury. The Frenchman is expected to be sidelined for about six weeks after injuring himself in the first half of Tuesday's 2-1 victory over Coventry.

    He's fast but couldn't find the back of an open net if he tried.

    Sorry to learn about Findley's injury, but what happen, did an English defender decide to welcome him to English style of play and thus deny him an opportunity to strut his stuff? David Huff is spot on, has lots of speed, but his ball control while on the run needs more work. Remember seeing him try to take on not one but two even three defenders while on the MNT and RSL... no concept, or poor ability? Both you say, well, maybe he'll learn to play some with his EPL minders. Get well soon, kiddo and learn to play one-two touch ball!

    As an addendum to Ric's insightful comments, it probably wouldn't hurt if he learned how to finish.
