Chelsea player has broken skull post #1  quote:



While I am no fan of Chelsea I am a big fan of Chech and I hope he makes a full recovery from what was a potentially fatal injury according to Mourinho and other people who have seen the challenge. I saw the game on prem plus and it was horrific and if you look at Chech he did waht all goalkeeprs are taught to don get down and get your head tucked in yet he still got clobbered and to see the Reading player laughing at his handiwork made me feel sick. According to the FA they will take no action on the reading players who knocked out, Chech and then his replacement Cuducini how the hell can you take no action I think the Chech one was blatanat and if the FA are not intrested maybe Chelsea should as the police if they want to see the tape because something has to be done after what happend at Portsmouth and now this what are we waiting for somebody to be murdered?

It was a nasty accident which Jose Mourinho claims, and is the only one to claim, was intentional.

Of course we are all as worried for Petr Cech as we were for Pedro Mendes but Cech's injury is worse and he may be out for a long time. Cuddicini is also out and Chelsea have to rely on a relatively unknow Portuguese keeper.

Bolton have offered Ian Walker as a tempory replacement.

Petr Chech is an amazing goalie. I hope he recovers from such a horrible injury.

Here in the states we most likely will not have news of it. I'll have to try to catch Sky Sports News for it.

From bbc.co.uk:

Chelsea say Petr Cech has regained full consciousness after undergoing surgery on his fractured skull.

Keeper Cech, 24, was hurt in the first minute of Chelsea's win over Reading after colliding with Stephen Hunt and could miss the rest of the season.

A Chelsea statement said Cech's condition is improving and that he has been visited by family and team-mates.

Hunt has denied deliberately injuring Cech but Blues boss Jose Mourinho has asked the FA to review the incident.

Cech's wife Martina has been at his bedside while Mourinho and Chelsea skipper John Terry were among the first to visit the goalkeeper.

Hunt has insisted the collision with Cech was a complete accident: "I can guarantee that I did not attempt to injure Petr and I am very upset that the collision has resulted in such a bad injury.

"When Petr slid in to collect the ball, our momentum meant that a collision was unavoidable.

"I think the TV pictures show that the collision was a complete accident, and I'd like to think that my team-mates and opponents throughout my career in football would say that I'm not the kind of person to deliberately hurt an opponent.

Reading boss Steve Coppell added: "We support Stephen 100%. He is a fair and honest player, and anybody who knows him would agree that he is not the kind of person to hurt Petr Cech on purpose.

Cech underwent a successful operation at the Radcliffe Infirmary's specialist neuro-surgical unit in Oxford.

Fellow keeper Carlo Cudicini was also carried off during the match and Chelsea have not commented on how long either player will be sidelined.

"I would think Cech is likely to be out for at least six months," Peter Hamlyn, consultant neuro-surgeon and director for the centre of sports and exercise medicine at St Bartholomew's Hospital told the Daily Telegraph.

"That is about the length of time it takes for stout bone healing to take place. If the brain underlying the fracture has been greatly injured, his time out may be even longer."

Hamlyn anticipates Cech making a full recovery but warned against an early return.

"If Petr Cech returns too soon from his head injury, the result could be fatal," he said.

"He risks what is known as 'second impact syndrome'. This happens when a second blow causes swelling to the brain before it has recovered fully from an earlier injury.

"It is a situation that could prove fatal, even if the first blow is deemed not to be serious."

Meanwhile, the Football Association is studying the referee's report and video evidence to see whether they will take action against Reading duo Hunt and Ibrahima Sonko.

Mike Riley has told Keith Hackett that he did not request Petr Cech to leave the field of play

Mourinho had called for their challenges to be examined after they left Cech and Cudicini in hospital.

Meanwhile referee Mike Riley has rejected claims he ordered Cech to leave the field for treatment.

There have been claims Chelsea are to complain about the match official's handling of the incident.

Cech did crawl towards the touchline but Riley has told referees chief Keith Hackett he followed the correct protocol for head injuries.

A spokesman for the referees body Professional Game Match Officials said: "Mike Riley has told Keith Hackett that he did not request Petr Cech to leave the field of play.

"As is the strict protocol with head injuries, he stopped play immediately to get medical attention on as soon as possible.

"He realised the gravity of the situation and told the stretcher bearers to take Petr Cech off by the shortest possible route instead of following normal protocol and going around the perimeter of the pitch."

I would be surprised if Cech played again this season. Even if he makes recover in six months that is taking you mid March or early April now consider time for training as he would have out in almost a pre season type schedule and the reserves games to get his sharpness then tie all that in with seeing neuro surgeons who will ultimatley decide when he can play and possibly a mental block that hinders him in one on one situations.

This debate about the Cech injury is getting out of hand. People are calling for protection like padding for keepers.

I submit to you this:

there are over 100 professions to semi-pro teams in England, most with two goalkeepers who could play in the first team. Each team played almost every week, sometimes twice a week, and most manage to get through the who 90 minutes plus injury time with injury or red cards.

The Cech insident was a rare accident that dosen't happen every week. It would be stupid to change the rules of the game on that one accident.

Reading have refuted Jose Mourinho's claims that it took 30 minutes for an ambulance to arrive to take Petr Cech to hospital.

The Chelsea goalkeeper suffered a fractured skull in the first minute of Saturday's game at The Madejski Stadium, which kicked off at 5.15pm.

Cech has undergone surgery and is now recovering in hospital, but Mourinho is unhappy with the length of time it took to collect the Czech.

Mourinho claims that, after an ambulance was called, half-an-hour passed before the vehicle arrived to collect Cech.

The Royals have responded to the Blues manager's comments and insist only seven minutes lapsed between the ambulance being called and arriving at the ground.

"This statement contains very serious factual inaccuracies," read a statement on Reading's official website.

"The factual timeline of the afternoon's events were as follows:

"17.16 - The collision between Petr Cech and Stephen Hunt occurred and treatment was provided on the pitch.

"17.21 - Petr Cech was taken into the dressing room on a stretcher. Chelsea Football Club's medical staff were in charge of the treatment provided to Cech. At first, they decided that it was not necessary to call an ambulance.

"17.40 - Cech's condition deteriorated and the Chelsea doctor called for assistance which was immediately raised from the stadium medical control.

"17.45 - After a brief inspection of Cech, the paramedics called for an ambulance.

"17.52 - The ambulance arrived at the players' entrance.

"18.04 - The ambulance departed Madejski Stadium.

"18.11 - The ambulance arrived at the Royal Berkshire Hospital."
