Do we know which knee it is yet?

I'd hope so, but like Hendry he cannot be adequately replaced with our resources, let alone what is actually available presently. 

Our options are basically an unattached player or a teenager on loan from Dundee United or similar. 

Thoroughly depressing.

We've genuinely got the shittest luck with long term injuries. How many have we had over the last decade? It feels like we get at least 1 ACL injury each year.

How many since the artificial  got installed?

At moments this like how it affects us really is immaterial. Personally I'm absolutely devastated for the guy. He's a fantastically talented footballer and by the sounds of it a great personality off the pitch.

I've no idea how mentally you can cope with the constant set backs. What he should know is that he has the full support and is in the thoughts of not only our fan base but the wider footballing community.

Aye, but it's usually Vaughan who gets it, the poor c**t.

It's a proper c**t for everyone associated with the Rovers and I really feel for the guy who is such a talent and looked like he might finally be getting strong enough to play regularly through the last part of last season.

A real sickener, and arguably the end of any shot we might have had at the top half of the table.

More prosaically, we will need another body in to provide the necessary competition and depth and James Keatings now really needs to step up to the plate in a big fucking way.

Two we got our pitch, from what I remember, which is Vaughan and Aaron Lennox. Vaughan's previous 3 were Starks on grass, Forfar (where Regan Hendry also got a serious injury) and Brechin in winter.

McGurn got one at Stark's on grass. Cuthbert had an injury he never came back from up at Tannadice. Thomson did his at achilles at Ochilview. There'll be others I'm forgetting.

Well, before today - and someone correct me if I'm wrong - but Vaughan's last two were up at Forfar and Brechin, and I think Hendry's (the last non Vaughan related) was at Forfar as well. Brechin is obviously a real shitty grass surface outside of two weeks in August and Forfar is an older artificial pitch I think.

Yup that’s absolutely the worst news, such a f*cking shame on the boy. Personally for me, I hope he does retire, otherwise he could end up putting himself in a wheel chair at 50/60 year old because he canny walk. It’s absolutely criminal

For me, might be controversial, but I’m not bothered for Gullan, a real take it or leave for me to be honest. I did think prior to the worst news ever, that we are needing a different type of striker in. With Vaughany now done I reckon we can do with another winger/10 type player.

Trust McGlynn.

Wasn't Vaughan's first one at Starks when it was still grass in 2015.

That news is just the worst. 

Absolutely devastated for Lewis. 

Rest of the season is going to be grim if we are going to be relying on Poplatnik, Keatings and Varian in the forward positions.

Words fail me.
This is so horrible for Lewis. 
Sure it's a big blow for the club and the team but for Lewis it's totally devastating.
I hope he's able to come back from this, yet again, but I've serious doubts that this could be the end of what should have been a stellar career.
Can only wish him the very best wishes for a full recovery going forward and hope he's still able to turn out for the Rovers in the future.
