    He is extremely fragile. Must be handled with care.

    I don't remember if it was Aronjo or Terrence Boyd who managed to injure his toe while in recovery from his knee.

    Let's hope Weah hobbles around carefully these days.

    Let's not put too much pressure on the kid, he's still only 19.

    At 19, his dad George Weah was still playing for "Mighty Barrolle" in Monrovia, Liberia. George didn't even leave Africa for Europe until he was 22, and didn't get his first caps for Liberia until 21.

    So Tim has plenty of time to get back on track.

    Jinxed him with this "Where there's...", definitely should have chosen "Say hello... "

    I thought he tore his hamstring.

    However he just posted an IG pic in a hospital bed in Finland.

    Finland? I wonder if he's receiving transplanted tissue from the renowned Dr Rangifer Tarandus.

    I think most of these thread puns are pretty dumb. That said, if he ever plays for Atlanta United, I call dibs on Weah Down Yonder on the Chattahoochee.

    After the French government announced that no sporting events would be permitted before September, the French Ligue de Professional Football made the decision to end the Ligue 1 season using the standings at the time of abandonment to determine the 2020/2021 European places. Thus Lille OSC finish in fourth and qualify for the 2020/2021 UEFA Europa League group stage. They were 1 point off of third and a spot in the Champions League third qualifying round. However, some clubs are talking about reserving the right to appeal the decision. Based on this interview with Lille's club president, it does not seem like they are interested challenging the ruling though they are not happy with it.

    Weah's season was over anyway due to him re-tearing his hamstring. His final stat line for an injury derailed 2019/2020 season is a yellow card in 84 minutes (3 games, 1 start) of Ligue 1 play.
