I think that the club knew he wouldn't be back, fans for spun a load of drivel until the window shut.
What a load of rubbish
It was a leg fracture. They will basically mend themselves, the bones recalcifys and knits together.. there's nothing else that can be done
Sometimes it doesn't knit together again correctly and causes pain.. especially when you put pressure on it.
I imagine Joe was given the time period, then when that was up he went to put pressure on and it was giving him pain.
There is no way in the world they knew it wasn't going to be right and then said, f**k you Joe, wait til February and then we will do the surgery
What are you? 12? Or just stupid?
The surgery will either be to rebreak the bone (unlikely on a fracture) or shave off some of the residue that's not knitted back together and is causing the discomfort
No way until after the time frame for recovery would they know it's not sorted itself as they would expect
You don't have initial surgery on a fracture. It's not like a clean snap
