Cranie suffers broken leg

Is this not typical, Martin Cranie was in a rich vein of form with QPR - with whom he was on loan - but the youngster has only gone and broke his leg...

He was stretchered off in QPR's game with Coventry last night and is now expected to be out for at least 2 months. It is bad, but not as bad as it could have been, it just means that he will not get any more football under his belt before attempting to challenge for a spot with Pompey early next year.

Cranie was due to return in January, but has now returned earlier than expected to be treated for the injury.

In an article I wrote yesterday I was raving about the fella, saying how much of a bright future I believed he will have, hopefully this will not hamper his progress...

Gutted for him. He was doing great at QPR too. We wish him a speedy recovery.

That's unfortunate poor guy, and promising young talent. Hope he is back on his feet soon x

Let's hope he is on the mend soon. Just when things were going well for him.

this certainly is shame for him - but other than not being able to play for the next couple of months it might not be as bad as it seemed... obviously assuming he returns with no problems as a result.

I've read quite a few comments from QPR fans saying that his arrival really saw a marked change in their clubs fortunes....was great to see him doing well, hope he's fit and raring to go as soon as possible.

injuries can be cruel in this game tho... hopefully he will come back better, stronger and even hungrier to be a success - and i will be fully behind the fella.

as far as pompeys currnet first team is concerned, its irrelevant. as far as the future...who knows. hopefully he wont be injurry prone, and will come back and have a great career. but its bad luck to him. and more to the point, the worst seriosu injury (apart from linvoys) of our season.

well to be fair, this could be linvoys last season, whilst cranie has got years left.

Gutted for the fella, hope we see him back in action soon.... maybe once recovered 'arry will loan him back to QPR to get some more match practice.... he seemed to be growing there and was making a difference... QPR fans seem to be as gutted as us..

in terms of there here and now i would probably say they are more so Chix... optimus primus will do well to get his 20 odd games this season, which is what he needed to activate a new contract wasnt it? i think the fella is fantastic and will never let us down, but i do worry about his future with the club now tbh.
