Usually, the injury bits I drop here are not great news. This time, it is. Rapid Vienna forward Terrence Boyd has been named to the squad for tonight's Europa League playoff round decider away to Georgia's Dila Gori. The US international even tweeted to a fan that he would be ready to play when they defend a 1-0 first leg lead for a place in the group phase.
Combine that with this week's return of Brek Shea and Jonathan Spector, as well as the eagerly awaited reserve returns of Maurice Edu and Will Packwood, and one thing becomes clear. Our boys get fit like they get hurt: in bunches.
