Gutted, but his health comes first! Get well soon.
Get well soon Darren Fletcher. There's a place open for you when you regain your full fitness.
Well, that explains a lot. I was wondering why he was apparently fit, but being kept out of the side by Jones. Poor lad has to concentrate on getting well and forget about football!
I hope he can come back and get near his best, but his long term health is more important.
All those coming in hear with shit like "Fergie spend some money" can feck off. That shit can stay in another thread, this thread should be about every single united supporter wishing Darren a quick and full recovery. Poor lad it's a proper wank illness. Honestly some of you seem almost glad he's gone so you get your precious January transfer.
Really sad to hear, but focussing on his health has to be the right decision.
All the best to the lad, and hope we see him back in a Utd shirt soon
Do us all a favour and shut up you utter clown.
Absolutely dreadful. Best wishes to Fletcher.
It is also a problem that it has psychosomatic causes and its stress induced.
Hopefully he can recover for next season but it's not something that goes away so I very much doubt we'll see him again. Fingers crossed
Very sad news.
No doubt he'll get the best treatment money can buy and hopefully will be back playing in teh not too distant future.
Bloody hell, that's awful news. Gutted for Darren as he's worked so hard to establish himself in the team over the last several seasons and was, for a period of time, our best midfielder.
Sorry to say this, but this now further highlights the need for 1-2 new midfielders.
Get well soon Fletch
Yeah you can't imagine how stressful a period like this must be for a footballer as well. Poor lad.
Steve Redgrave had this apparently, and look where he got. Fletch seems like a guy who will fight this, I hope we see him back to his best.
"Darren’s continued desire to play and his loyalty to both his club and country has probably compromised the chances of optimising his own health and fitness."
Would expect nothing less of Fletch but fair play, that's commitment. Real shame.
I'd heard the rumours a while back but didn't want to believe them. Gutted for him. My friend has spend the last few years going through something similar and sometimes getting up in the morning is a problem, let alone top level football.
All the best to him.
Best wishes and good luck to him.
Health before Football. Best wishes and a speedy recovery to him.
Pogs surely now needs to be on the bench for most games?
all the best in the recovery Fletch
Get well soon Darren
Get well soon Darren.
Feels like a Hargreaves situation all over again. Makes that rocket he scored against City all that more impressive.
Gutted for him. Just when he was (speaking long term) establishing himself as a potentially great player.
Also adds to our CM issues. Not to sidetrack the thread but surely we must spend in January now.
It sucks (as a veteran of three colonoscopies before the age of twenty I can testify to that), I have a mate who has had it from the age of fourteen and has never weighed more than eight stone but you can still have a really good quality of life.
He got put on a new drug last year and his life has improved immeasurable and he has even put on some weight!
Get well soon Darren!
feckin devastated. We're taking absolute heavy fire from the injuries.
Wishing the speedy recovery for ALL of them.
All the best to Fletch.
Shit. That's two first team players we're missing for the season. Always knew there was something fishy about that virus.
Get well soon Darren ! Rest easy
My friend suffered from the same disease. As far as she told very it's an embarrassing condition.
Nonetheless - one may rate Darren or not, but his commitment was always second to none. he deserves fans' support- nodoubtabut it.
I hope he comes back as soon as possible.
His absence leaves us short in midfiled.
BTW - are we cursed or what?
I feel so much sympathy for him. I suffer from Crohn's Disease so I have a good idea of what he's going through. Only difference is I've had it from a very young age so I've grown up with it. I can't imagine what it's like to have your whole life turned upside down because of it.
Best of luck to him
What sort of cure is there?
Why? It's not as though he's going to read it. I do wish him all the best, but discussing the implications of this on our team, and on our transfer policy, that doesn't do any harm, indeed it's better than 5 pages of 'every single united supporter' saying "Good luck Fletcher" and such. You always seem to be trying to big yourself up as some sort of superfan and spoiling for an argument with people.
Get well soon Fletch
Get wr8 on the phone! To the transfer forum!
There is no cure. You just go through periods of relapse and remission.
A really scary prospect for a footballer.
Hoping he recovers soon.
Health comes first always. Kudos for him trying to be there for the club but, glad he is going to take care of himself first. Wish him the best.
Gutted for the lad, he must be devastated. Get well soon Darren.
We've all thought Fletcher had lost form since the 'viruses' but to have performed still at a respectable level with a condition like that is a testament to what a brilliant professional he is.
Found this, thought might as well post it
very sad news indeed. Cant see him coming back from this...
its a cnut of a disease
Don't really know what to say. Truly gutted for him.
