    Not serious. He is expected to resume training within a week.

    Hopefully, as stated by GR, it is because they pushed him hard straight away to see how he coped. They will be a little more gentle and patient from now on, but don't expect him to be in from game number 1.

    I'm afraid with his track history Ammy we are now in " I will believe it when I see it" territory.

    I think that McClaren effectively finished his career when he played him for three games in a week the first week back from his second acl. He wasn't right for the whole of the next season. Even though the leg break was unfortunate, Thorne was a pretty average player who was struggling with the pace of the game - a far cry from the majestic 'quarterback' of the run in to the play-offs. Sadly, because he looked real quality, I don't think we'll ever see Thorne back in a Derby shirt.

    This is in training ffs. Great player but more in sick bay than in front of our defence.

    Can't blame the lad for the double leg break and subsequent infection. they have purposely pushed him hard and a niggle here or there was always a possibility. Too soon to draw your conclusion Martin.

    It's not a question of blame is it? He can't help the injuries he's had, but some players seem to be unlucky and he's one of them. I hope it is only a week but I suspect no-one will be surprised if it's six months. It's such a shame, he's a fantastic player

    Sadly, I agree with you.


    Does GR have the emotional intelligence to realise the gem he has?

    GR will not realise what a gem he has until he sees George in match action, and there is the start of the real problem........

    Feel it's make or break for Thorne this season, another bad injury for example will see him off on a free at some point
    Really hope he gets back to that level we know he can do

    bad luck or otherwise we need to move on from George Thorne as we are unlikely to ever get even a majority of a season out of him.

    Shame as he is a great player.
