certainly looked like it. played completely unlike himself. i think he was more of a liability on the field. apart from hitting the post and i think one shot that forced a save from the keeper, he wasnt in the game at all.
What did he do break a toe nail? With the amout of money these footballers get, they should be on the pitch even if a limb is hanging off.
