Did anyone else catch the horrific injury Fulham's Jimmy Bullard sustained in the match against Newcastle? The opponent's captain Scott Parker got distracted by Bullard as the fulham player attempted a tackle, and fell over Bullards leg, twisting the knee in a terrible manner.

The kneecap was dislocated for nearly half a minute before medical staff were able to put it back in position.

Remarkably, Bullard is expected back within 6-8 weeks, despite the worst injury I've seen since Alan Smith ruined his leg against Liverpool last season.

And believe me I know how much it hurts. The last time my feet touched a football was almost 5 years ago in college while I was trying to foil a game of a few friends as I came out of my last class of the day. I was wearing dress shoes and had a bag on my shoulder. The difference is that I was running alongside him and while trying to get the ball away from him, he fell square on my right leg when it was extended and boy can I still remember how the part of my leg below the knee moved out in a motion I never thought possible and how I tried to deny it after I fell by trying to stand up and run again to catch up with the ball only to fall after not even taking one more step on that leg.
My recovery took more than a year, luckily my kneecap was okay but it swell to almost one and half times the other knee. More than one doctor told me that I should refrain from draining the liquid in the knee via needles etc and make it dry by exercise because the knee may start producing more and more of it which will require more drainings and more time to heal. I didn't get any surgery probably only because I didn't pay much attention to it despite the fact that I could not fold my right leg beyond the sitting position for more than a year. It still pops everytime I sit and stand but I can run, play cricket and above all fly! Don't even get a chance to play football anymore. Though the X-rays never revealed any damage at any point.
I don't quite feel the same as I used to. It may only be fear that I don't push myself anymore, the way I had no problems pushing, because I had evoked the pain numerous times during my recovery. Otherwise I feel okay, anyway thanks for reading.

I hope he recovers fully and above all, quickly.

I was truly surprised when they claimed he would be back in action so quickly given the nature of the injury. Will be interesting to see if the injury has an effect on his recent good form when he returns.
