Think we've all been looking forward to Doak starting. I would go: AliMilner, Gomez,Phillips.RobboTrent, Hendo, Fabinho.Doak, Mo, Darwin.Had my fill of Trent's defending. It's an old chestnut but I want to see if he can play in Mid closer to Doak & Mo.
I am putting £1000 on Matip being injured in training this week
We need a lot man. A team Doctor, a sporting director, and about 6-8 new faces in the squad next year. Injuries have to be down to something we're not doing, yes? The amount we've had this year are staggering
We have a team doctor
Yep he arrived in November
Terrible year for injuries. But tbf lots of managers predicted this due to the stupid timing of the world cup and domestic season squashed up to suit. Add to that we played every game going last season it was probably inevitable, not sure anyone thought it would be this bad though.
Think the bigger issue is things like going into the season without a full compliment of medical staff at the club.
Didn’t he leave right before the first game - think a couple of days before. Not sure why it took until November to bring in a permanent one though
As I said didn't start until December and actually only took up full duties Jan 2023 which from Summer is pretty dire which ever way you look at it
17 separate hamstring injuries totalling 79 missed games and not having that is bad luck only
