It has been a miserable, frustrating year for our midfielder,Alan Mahon. After his arrival from Wigan,originally on loan, last season,he was hailed as a key player in the team and became a fan's favourite. Steve Cotterill himself declared that Alan was the 'Jewel in our crown'.
All the fans were looking forward to seeing Alan Mahon fulfill that expectation this season but he has been dogged by injury and some lack of form. He has featured only twice since September and in only 10 games so far in total this season. He is currently out of the team thanks to a persistent, nagging groin injury.
So what does Alan himself think of his own personal situation and that of the Club? Interviewed by the Official Site he is quoted as saying the following:
'I've been out a while and not playing is very difficult, especially as I haven't played many games this season,'
'It's been a difficult season for the club as a whole and on a personal note, the groin injury has just dragged on and my father's not been too well either, so it has been a bad season - probably the worst time of my career.
'My form dipped so it was correct to leave me out. I had no complaints with that. Now it's down to me now to get back in the team and in the next couple of weeks I'm hoping to be back training and playing again because I miss going out and kicking a football.
'I've not targeted a particular game, but I'll definitely be back to play a part in the run-in.'
'Training has always been spot on and if you work hard, you'll get out of it.
'We feel that we have a duty, but we work hard and we can only try and play well.
'There's a great spirit in the club, as good as I've known anywhere, and to have the crowd behind you is a massive help.
'I know it's difficult for them at the moment and they've been fantastic this season, but they can give you an extra gear.
'They've been so patient, and we appreciate their backing.'
All at Vital Burnley FC wish you well Alan and all Clarets fans hope to see you return soon and become that rock in midfield we so badly need at the moment.
