Hero Mellor out for the season

Liverpool hero Neil Mellor has become the latest Liverpool player to be
ruled out for the remainder of the season due to injury. He is due to
undergo surgery today. He is suffering from  tendinitis in both

Mellor, 22, has scored five goals in 16 games this season – perhaps most memorably at home to Arsenal and Olympiacos.

His goal against Arsenal was a superb effort, even more so with it
being practically the last kick of the match and also the winner.

And his goal – as substitute – against Olympiacos in the Champions
League set the game up for Gerrard’s last minute tie-winning goal to
see Liverpool into the last 16.

He joins Djibril Cisse (broken leg), Chris Kirkland (back injury), Xabi
Alonso (broken ankle) and Florent Sinama-Pongolle (knee injury) on the
list of serious casualties at Anfield.

* Good luck Neil from all of us at AnfieldRoad.com – let’s hope you’re back soon – we could have done with you at Cardiff!
