On twitter there's a photo of Kemar with a leg brace on, probably cautionary but probably means he could be out for a few games

When you retire, you switch bosses - from the one that hired you, to the one that married you.

From Phil Hay....

Leeds United have confirmed that Kemar Roofe suffered knee ligament damage against Swansea last week. No timescale on his return but the club are hopeful he'll be back before the end of the season. #lufc

This is Bamfords big chance to really step up and show why we paid £7 Million for him. Really hope he grabs this opportunity with both hands and makes enough of an impact for us not to miss Roofe.

I think it's more a chance for Roberts TBH, Bamford's already in the starting line-up. Think we'll see more of the Thorp Arch striker involvement now too ie on the bench. Bad luck for Roofe, I hope he makes a full recovery and has the chance to do it for us again, he's been a strong performer for us IMO.

Norwich put 4 past Bolton, its about time we started doing it to the lower teams instead of a win by the odd goal.
I once played against Don Revie.

I've been tipping us to win 4-0 all season on the predictor and it's never come up so yes, I agree :thumbup: :lol:

This is a blow.

I was advocating that Roofe be dropped for Roberts though as I do not think Roofe is good playing behind another striker.

Trouble is, Bamford, Roberts & Brown (if fully fit would be our best no10) have all had big injuries in the last 12 months. We need a bit of luck with injuries from here on in.

Yes, this is a big problem, too many injuries, especially in the attacking section.
Bamford and Roberts are barely enough until the end of the season, who else could play as a striker?
Harrison played up front at QPR in the cup, but he is obviously not a forward.
Edmondson or Temenuzhkov perhaps?
