We played our 3rd choice left back (Burn and Targett) our second choice CB (Botman) our 3rd choice CM (Bruno and Tonali) 3rd choice LW (Gordon and Barnes) ended up with our 3rd choice RW (Miggy and Murphy). No recognised striker (Wilson and Isak). There should be no complaints about Lascelles (he has been great) no matter what we think of him as he is next in line to start and you have to expect him to have some game time. When it comes to the rest, Hall is one for the future, as is Miley, Ritchie is one from the past, Joelinton was played out of position and is still not too long back from injury, Willock is not too long back from his injury. Tino had a bad injury last season. 

 

In the past when we have be 'ravaged' by injuries, we have been just been waiting for ASM and Wilson. 

 

With this list of injuries, you have to look at training and question the coaching element and what the manager is playing at. When you do this, you can see that most have happened in games and not due to the training techniques. We can say that we have been unlucky and just have to work our way through. 

 

Bruno and Isak are due back in our next game.

 

Agreed up to this point. It's statistically unlikely to be this "unlucky" imo. I'm still convinced it's a function of the high intensity physically demanding way we play, and I do worry about how sustainable it is long term. I mean, I do love watching it and it's incredibly effective with a full first team, but I think a byproduct is always going to be a high injury and suspension rate. The answer is probably to transition to a more controlling side but this will take better quality players in a lot of positions and time. Early days yet though.

Playing there and being good at it are two different things.

 

Where the fuck were you last night anyhow? Did your usual deli run out of your vegan foi gras forcing you to hoverboard over to Peckham?

Disagree. Very few of the injuries were muscle injuries of the kind you would expect to occur because of our pressing intensity other than maybe Botman. Targett maybe but it was like 90 second into the game. The others are all impact injuries, freak injuries such as Burn’s jarred back, Barnes’s broken foot etc. We’ve  just been very, very unlucky.

Are you mistaking this boards leading thread-starter with Jonah Gloom? :lol:

Targett probably did his hamstring at home, tripping over a pile of pizza boxes in the hall.

I can’t think that I’ve ever heard more than one or two of them. The reason why I don’t is mostly down to him turning from an excellent journalist into basically a stenographer for PiF which the pic beautifully illustrates. Also that i formed the impression that Taylor was a self promoting wanker before he was on the podcast. I note his mate Besty has now returned to social media obscurity . Not sure if these things are connected or not

 

As for Ms Hope, who I’m only really aware of via her notoriety on these pages, I’ve no idea as to her ticketing status. Didn’t see her in AFCB’s tiny concourse area yesterday and, as I noted earlier, neither have I ever seen her other than perhaps once with her cohort of smug SM types upstairs in the 3 Bulls. (The other fellah is Caulkins mate who works for the Cherries)    So yeah. It looks fuckin awfumatel when long standing supporters are being virtually criminalised by the club they’re likely to have supported for decades before Amanda Staveley could point to Tyneside on a fuckin map for the crime of passing a ticket on to a mate :cuppa:

 

and punishments handed out by boyd weddell, a cunt who was selling them on to strangers in bruges market square.

Target after the shagging is starting to calm down to their lass....

 

"Wait a minute..... You're telling me you can't cook?"

TBF to Targett and Mrs Targett, wor lass could barely cook when we first got together so you can draw your own conclusions on the initial attraction. Funny thing is, as the sexual interflora died down, so her cooking got better. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She's a Michelin star chef these days. :cuppa:

Based on this I must be married to Monica Galetti.

I've heard this said before but how are impact injuries and stress fractures not related to play intensity?

Michelin stars originated as a way to sell more car tyres- if people were told the food in some gaff miles away was worth a trip, they’d wear through their tyres quicker, leading to more sales for Michelin.

They were originally as a guide for places motorists could stop for decent food weren’t they? I fully appreciate I’m probably being whooshed :lol:

An impact injury can happen to any player at any time. It’s different to hamstrings or thighs going all the time, which is what happened to Liverpool when Klopp first introduced his intense counter pressing style.

 

Let’s look at who is missing, and you tell me.

 

Tonali - suspended. Nothing to do with our style of play 

 

Bruno - suspended. Nothing to do with our style of play 

 

Murphy - dislocated shoulder. Freak injury, nothing to do with our style of play

 

Barnes - broken foot. Freak injury, nothing to do with our style of play


Burn - back problem. A result of landing awkwardly. Surely nothing to do with our pressing intensity 
 

Anderson - back problem. Ditto

 

Targett - thigh strain. Possibly a result of style of play but it happened 90 seconds into a match so seems unlikely. 



 

Wilson - thigh injury. Possibly a result of our style of play and playing too many minutes

 

Botman - knee injury. Potentially connected to our intensity. 

 

Isak - groin strain - possibly a result of our style of play

Bruno collecting yellows is possibly connected to our style of play imo. Just not sure I buy this unlucky line, I personally expected this to happen.
