Turns out that snakes have hamstrings... who knew?
First, he got injured on his debut for City after just 18 minutes against Real Madrid in a preseason friendly, then City splash the cash on Kevin de Bruyne from Wolfsburg.
Delph managed to get in Roy Hodgson's England squad and after a few decent minutes against San Marino (ahem), he was set to start at Wembley against Switzerland.
However, sadly for him, he managed to do his hammy after just a couple of seconds and was forced off! He really isn't having a good time so far, but at least he's got all that lovely money from his Manchester City move.
It's safe to say Twitter absolutely exploded when Delph had to trot off, and they were quick to stick the knife into the midfielder.
And here are some of the best tweets!

I see why Delph joined City now. If you're going to sit on your arse all season, you may as well get paid a shed load of cash.— John Fuller (@1JohnFuller) September 8, 2015
