I don't understand how someone who's been injured that many times, could be considered anything but injury-prone.

When you injure something, it is very easy to injure something else due to numerous reasons.

Like with my broken leg this year... I had been told i could play for 2 months because the bone was healed. But since i had sat on my arse and been on crutches, all my muscles had weakened and non responsive. Maybe the same has happened to saha. Idk, the man is unlucky.

I just watched the newcastle vs man utd game in February of this year and saha was brilliant! He has sooo much pace and a good finisher.

Saha has an injured life, and yes he's injury prone, it would b a sickening statement to suggest otherwise:)

ive always liked saha always thought he was a good finnisher and and passer but he just cant seem to stay of the treatment table, its a shame cuz he has alot to give us but to be honest ive lost faith in him its fair enough for players to get injured it happens but we really need someone whos going to be around consitantly,

i say sell up hes done his best had his time and tryed his hardest and i will hold nothing but respect for him and his time at the club but i think its time to part ways unluckly :|

when we signed saha i was happy that we did
people who i know said that 13m is too much for him
but i never doubted that he is great striker
in 2005/2006 he impressed me allot
and became my 4th fav. player after wayne ruud and rio and became my dads fav player :eek:
he had a great season with little injures and 15 goal
the later season (06/07) was even better
he was one of the league top goalscorers in the first weeks and he had a great matches
but injures hunted him down and stopped his wonderful goalscoring form :(
in 2006/2007 he could have scored more than 15 goal but he was unlucky with the bloody injures.
the last season is the worst season ever in term of injures after 2004/2005 (both bloody full of injures season)
even so when ever he played , he played good
and also scored vital goals like sunderland 1-0
he didnt score in every match, but he played very good in every match
just remember his performance in bolton 2-0 sunderland 4-0 and newcastle 5-1
a really great player that will make me sad if he leaves
i hope saha stays, he is just 29 and able to do more
and i wish he face less injures in his future :)

Saha reminds me a lot of Ole. Two world class players decimated by injuries, and therefore couldn't show the rest of the world what United fans know to be true.

Spot on Brock. I feel so sorry for Saha. He is desperately unlucky and
probably injury prone as well. As someone who plays a lot of sport and gets
injured quite a lot, I can certainly sympathise with him. I even get called Louis
sometimes cos Im always in a heap, carrying 2/3 injuries into every game.
I hope Saha gets one more chance at OT, even if its as the 4th striker.
He has the class and ability. He just needs to catch a break.....NOT a leg break though :rolleyes:

to be a professional sportsperson you must get your body in perfect condition both mentally and physically , all true utd fans know that saha fails miserably and he would surely be gone if any other club was interested .
saha is a good player when fit and a great benifit to the team ,but he seems to be injured 75% of the time , anybody with such a dreadful injury count is no use to their club at all . we need somebody who can do the job and give us fans something to cheer about on a saturday afternoon instead of talking medical records.

No matter what condition your bodies in, you can easily get injured.

And being injured as much as Saha has means that its not as easy as just "getting your body into perfect condition."

The only thing you can do about an injury is follow the proper stretchings and exercises the doc gives you to help prevent it from A. getting worse and B. keeping your other muscles and joints from going dead. My father is currently going through a lot of this with hip replacements, etc. I've learned a lot about the whole process that I guess I just took for granted (or was ignorant to) previously.

look saha has got injured 2 or 3 times during the warm up in the last 2 seasons surely you can see his body cannot take a number of games ,and if he can't play then he is no good to man utd ,give somebody else a chance to live the dream instead of paying this crock who will struggle to play 12 games a season.

Looking at the breakdown of Saha's injury to date, I am truly loss for words on a personal basis. However, for the sake of the club unfortunately, I don't think we can classify him as an "asset" but a "liability", never mind his immense talents. He has to go for it is unlikely he can feature much for us with such horrendous injury record.

Perhaps he could finally end his nightmarish experience with us and I would sincerely wish him well in his future endeavours...

Au Revoir Saha?

Louis Saha could be on the verge of a return to France with Monaco and PSG both reportedly interested in signing the Manchester United striker.

The injury-hit Frenchman suffered a miserable season last year managing only six league starts for the Red Devils who went on to win the Premier League and Champions League, largely without him.

With United rumoured to be in the hunt for a new striker and with players such as Berbatov, Huntelaar and Santa Cruz all being linked with the club, Saha's days as a Manchester United player certainly appear to be numbered.

Although Roy Hodgson's Fulham have been linked with a move for the striker a bid has yet to appear from Craven Cottage and new reports suggest that a return to France may now be on the cards instead.

According to Francefootball, PSG are in the hunt for a striker as Paul Le Guen looks to rebuild his side. The club have already signed Chelsea's Claude Makelele and may be interested in adding Saha to their ranks too.

However, it appears that Monaco are willing to battle PSG for Saha who signed for Manchester United from Fulham back in 2004 for £12.8 million.

United are thought to be willing to accept bids in the region of £2 million for their frontman who has managed 42 goals in 124 appearances at United.

Man United keen to sell Louis Saha to raise funds

Manchester United are ready to sell Louis Saha to big-spending Paris St Germain to raise money for new arrivals.

The injury-jinxed French striker, 29, is wanted by PSG who have signed Chelsea veteran Claude Makelele and is interested in going home if a fee and personal terms can be agreed.

United have rejected several bids from clubs who want Saha on loan and PSG would have to buy the hitman and then be able to take on his stunning £4million-ayear salary.

Boss Sir Alex Ferguson has grown fed up with Saha's inability to be a significant part of his squad and the money from shifting him could help in his bid for a fit goalscorer. Saha should know his PSG fate shortly.
