Ryan Mason: Hull City midfielder forced to retire after fractured skull
Image
Hull City midfielder Ryan Mason has been forced to retire at the age of 26 as a result of the fractured skull he suffered against Chelsea in 2017.
Mason, who won one cap for England in 2015, had to have surgery after a clash of heads with defender Gary Cahill.
His decision to retire follows "the guidance of numerous world renowned neurologists and neuro surgeons".
He started his career with Tottenham and joined Hull for a club record fee, believed to be about £13m, in 2016.
After eight minutes of treatment on the pitch during the Premier League match at Stamford Bridge in January 2017, Mason was given oxygen as he was carried off on a stretcher.
He had surgery at St Mary's Hospital in London, where he stayed for a week afterwards, and has since spoken of feeling "lucky to be alive".
Mason started training with the club again in May last year but no expected return date was ever given and then Tigers boss Leonid Slutsky said in August that "the question is not just about football but about his life" when the player went to see a third specialist.
The Championship club said in a statement: "Ryan has sought the guidance of numerous world renowned neurologists and neuro surgeons who have all advised that a return to competitive football is not advised.
"Ryan would like to put on record his thanks to all at the Club who have aided his recovery to this point and he his is indebted to them for their support and compassion over the past 12 months."

An exceptionally fine offering today Chinners, as always. You continually spoil us utterly and completely, so well done to you old chum.

With regard to the Harry Kane 'story', you'd have thought the 'journalist' concerned would have waited for April 1st before unleashing that one. That way, there might have been a trifle more credibility to the claim made.

With regard to mr_nool's excellent daily dictionary, you could say that the lumbering buffoon Paul Pogba (pronounced 'Pigba') is putting the 'rag' into viraginity.

Yeah I'm sadly getting round to that way of thinking .... maybe his team-mates could challenge him to stay fit for 3 games on the trot this season

And a quick poll ... How do you pronounce Basel?
Baaal or Baaazel?

I'm firmly in the latter camp, but I'm naturally biased towards the German pronunciation.

As in Fawlty.


Correct!

En Francais, Basle( Bahl)

Are you already there? Take it easy on the cheese fondue! I OD'd on it one time when I was in Zurich for business. Had a sleepless night with cold-sweats and belly cramp.


You and OD on business in Zurich? Sweats and belly cramps? Tell us more.


What happens in Zurich stays in Zurich.


Not sure what you mean there ? kinda have a flashback to Student Rag mag days, and the answer „cockrobin“ to the question that was posed.

Don't know about the question John, but, to quote a gardening gentleman from yesteryear, "the answer lies in the soil". ;)
