Abou Diaby played 45 minutes of actual football on Tuesday.

The midfielder, who has been stuck in an infinite injury loop for as long as we can all remember wasn’t always prone to injuries.

There were a few months just after he signed for us when he’d probably never even head of Dan Smith.

Then this happened:

It should never be forgotten how Diaby ended up this way.

Told that he may never play again, it’s a miracle he has been able to play as much as has. Had this happened to any of us, we’d probably be walking with a limp for the rest of our lives.
