Chelsea faced with Cech injury and little cover!

I think as Chelsea fans around the world heard the news that Petr Cech needs an operation on his elbow, we all took in sharp breath inwards and thought to ourselves: "Oh no!".

However, it seems that he is OK and the situation will not get any worse and if everything stays the way it is, he will have the operation next summer.

Cech's injury was revealed as he was away on international duty and the Czech coach Michal Bilek said:

"An investigation showed a bit of ossification in his elbow, so they (Chelsea) are planning a surgery in England after the season.

They have asked us if we could rest him in friendly fixtures. We have come to an agreement with coach Michal Bilek and decided to be on good terms with Chelsea.

We are going to grant their wish and rest him.

Petr cannot stretch the arm properly. If he has to stretch the elbow, it hurts him sometimes.

There is nothing to be worried about, though. There is basically nothing that could make this problem worse.

The only thing that could force an immediate surgery is if the intensity of pain would get much higher or if the elbow was blocked in some way."

When did this happen? How long has he had this "problem" for? If this was something that affected him from back in the summer, why didn't Chelsea take action asap?

The fact that he is unable to stretch his arm properly IS a major concern for me. Let's face it, he isn't at 100% and won't be for the remainder of the season and this injury could affect his performances couldn't it!.

What if he makes it worse or something happens that forces him out? What if it gets so bad during the season that he has to bring the operation forward? Who covers him?

This injury to Cech has reinforced Chelsea fans view that as far as Goalkeeper cover, we haven't really got any have we. Nothing personal against Hilario and Turnbull but I'm sorry, both of them are backup keepers and not good enough to be regarded as good as Cech is!

I wonder if there is a clause in Courtious loan contract in that he can be recalled at anytime? Probably not knowing our luck!

I really hope that Cech's problem is something he can live with and DOESN'T affect his performances. That's the problem though isn't. If he doesn't perform very well, all we are going to hear about is the problem he has!

We live in hope but if this situation develops and forces Cech out, this could really damage us this season because of the lack of real cover we have left ourselves with at the club!
