    Make that 9 to 10 months.

    Manager confirms he's had surgery for a ruptured achilles tendon and will be out for 9 to 10 months.

    That's a horrible blow. Effectively all of next season - and they'll surely have to sign a keeper now, so no guarantees he'll get his place back either

    Mad to think you can get that bad an injury in a pre-match warm-up. Can't remember hearing something comparable tbh

    Here's hoping for a full recovery obviously

    He's just about the only young player in our squad that hasn't had a significant injury yet and felt left out!

    Best of luck to him in his recovery. It's a bad one but he has time on his side and a lot of experience already banked. Fully expect him to come back stronger after this.

    That's awful. I can't remember ever hearing of a keeper getting injured for that long.

    As an aside, I looked up Peter Cech's big injury at the hands (or knee anyway) of Hunt, which was just 3 months. Cech is currently playing goaltender in ice hockey!

    Absolute gut punch alright for us and for him. At a time when he needed the break he deserved, he gets this. Feel so sorry for him. Debate his ability all you like but he’s also a lovely lad who didn’t deserve this set back.

    Why the qualifier of "obviously" stu? Nobody here really thinks you wish him harm.

    It's just a meaningless inflection really.

    The timing isn't the worst in that Southampton won't be trying to rush him back any time next season. He should hopefully be fully fit for preseason June 2025. He has a contract till June 2027.

    On a serious and maybe overly optimistic note, this may be OK for Bazunu. His rise (with a few dips) from Rovers first team to #1 at a club in the EPL and Championship was pretty fast. I wonder sometimes has he had the chance to really study his game and mistakes on the way. It's fascinating to have Bazunu and Kelleher as the most consistent 2 options for Ireland with both following such different paths, almost to the extreme degree. It makes debating them a bit difficult because, really, they both could have done things a bit better. Kelleher could have played more and Bazunu might have been better off staying with City for a year or two longer to watch Ederson a bit closer and learn from the coaches there.

    9-10 months. I wouldn't be at all worried about his mental strength. That's been tested enough. He's also a lad who likes to live cleanly and should handle the rehab just fine. He likes to read and study as well though so a bit of time on the sidelines without the spotlight on him might be just the thing for him at this stage. He's still a huge prospect and if Southampton were to find a better option while he is out, he won't be short of options, even if he has to start again in L1.
