    Why is it we seem to have treble the injuries of other clubs.

    Does that include Cox’s pride?

    Getting the excuses in early this week. Nice to see the Club being proactive for a change.

    12 players injured, bit ambiguous, are they all injured long term and won’t kick another ball this season or are some only a week or ten days away from being fit. After the stop start type of season we have endured with games coming thick and fast Saturday/ Tuesday for a long period, I don’t think 6 first team players injured is that unusual or just applicable to us. The fact other teams in our league have more better, experienced players in their first team squads to help cover 6 first team injuries is probably why we struggle in games more than them. After all haven’t a lot of fans said this season if we can put our best eleven out on a regular basis we are more than a match for most teams in league 2, the fact our cover isn’t good enough when we can’t probably explains our season in a nutshell.

    6 isn’t unusual for us but it’s been like it all season, all teams get injuries but tell me any team who have had more.

    Players get injured but with us as soon as they are deemed fit they are straight back in and then almost immediately get another injury but far more serious.

    Buck stops there. Said before same players fail again and again but keep getting picked – Why ?

    No real surprise, thinking about it we know about Howard, McGahey, Taft, Brown and KVV. Green came off on Tuesday so presumably he’s number 6.

    Clarke is injured. Loft is deemed 50/50. Taft will probably be fit for Saturday though.

    I’d go

    Watson

    O’Malley Bedeau Taft Rowe

    Eisa Spence Karacan Gillead

    Olomola Loft/Van Veen

    Van Veen is back but obviously not match fit. Not too bad that team though.

    Loft is 50/50 but Taft may be available, Hallam is out, Clarke very doubtful.

    I can’t because I don’t really care about any other club, so I don’t follow their injury situation. But I’d be surprised if we really are consistently the worst club.

    I have mates who support a number of S.Yorks clubs and beyond and they look at me gone out whenever I explain our injury lists.
    Hardly research but it certainly leaves an impression.

    Having read the managers injury update I’d be tempted to go low risk and play 11 who are definitely 100%.
    Watson
    Howe Rowe Bedeau O’Malley
    Gilliead Karacan Spence Eisa
    McAtee Olomola
    Subs:- Beestin, Hippo and some of the U23s
    No good risking KVV, Taft, Green, Loft etc being out for the season. Reading between the lines it’s probably not a game Cox is ‘targetting’ for a win anyway.

    There must be a reason that Scunny get so many injured players, we keep saying that players are keen to get away from the club, and just don’t want to play for Scunny. Has anyone got the thoughts that the reason for all these injured players at our club ius, because they are all giving 120% throughout matches and that their limbs cannot take such stress???

    NO I THOUGHT NOT!!!

    Could be that some of them are giving 120% in training and have nothing left for match day.
    Or maybe not.

    I think it’s the other 50 of the 50/50 Northumbiron.

    Rowe and Bedeau scare the crap out of me if they’re the 2 central defenders he chooses to field. I’d play Barks there instead of Rowe, least he’s a CB by trade.

    I am sure I read somewhere that Cox views Rowe as a centre back who has been playing out of position at full back.

    If that’s the case he has never let the team down so I would like to see him have a game in his natural position.

    Why not give Jessop a go and put put Dawson on the bench rather than an out of position poor performer.

    Can’t find the football league stats but Premier League injury lists are usually very up to date for things like fantasy football.

    Out of the 20 clubs the current average number of first team injuries is 4.63. If it is 6 first team players we have out injured then there are 6 Premier League clubs that have the same number or higher.

    We aren’t unique.

    It could be possible that with all the diving and yelling that the Premier players do, that they actually convince themselves that they are actually injured. It is high time that refs in that League get a grip of all that diving and falling over their own leg drama, it has become a recognised acceptable thing now.

    But has Villa’s chairman told the fans that once Grealish is fit it will “be like signing a new player”?

    7 matches to go – no doubt VERY important ones, players will be thrown in who are on a hiding to nothing !

    This season has seen the most mismanaged set of players I have ever seen. Mr Cox is the luckiest manager in our history because if the crowds were actually there the gates by now would be at near rock bottom numbers.

    This from the OWS ….

    “Ryan Loft misses out again with a groin problem, goalkeeper Mark Howard remains out for three-to-four weeks with a thigh injury, while Manny Onariase has missed the last three games with a hamstring problem. Right-back Jordan Clarke continues to be a doubt after reporting a swollen ankle following the defeat at Carlisle seven days ago.

    Left-back Junior Brown is out for a total of five-to-six weeks with a hamstring injury that forced him off against Bradford City and attacker Jordan Hallam is out with the hamstring problem which he suffered against Oldham Athletic in March, while Olufela Olomola’s season looks to be over after he suffered a medial ligament injury.

    Striker Aaron Jarvis (hamstring) is set to miss the rest of the season, while midfielder George Hornshaw and goalkeeper Adam Kelsey are both expected to be out for the remainder of the campaign following ankle surgery.”

    When I was playing in the 70s & 80s hamstring injuries were rare. I’ve talked about this several times with mates who played at the same time and all were in agreement. Stretched groin and the odd dead-leg, perhaps. Ankle injuries were most likely the result of some horrendous tackle which you rarely see in the professional game these days.

    With improved fitness methods and strict diets. Warm ups and warm downs. One would have thought today’s footballer would be stronger than forty years ago, but apparently not!

    Also if we got a dead leg on Saturday we were still fit for Sunday.

    Guys correct me if i’m wrong but I presume none of you on here either played or trained professionally?,if not then the levels of fitness and expectancy levels on you all playing local league stuff is light years away from the professional game. Training methods are better now then back in the day but the game is much faster paced and certainly over 90 minutes the continued speed of the game over that period compared to 40 years back is considerable. Just saying, I relise the injuries and particlarly hamstring problems are many but I believe its to do with the speed levels expected of every player these days, hamstring injuries have always been the achilles heel ( pardon the pun ) of the quick player. The fact some of you played Saturday then Sunday after sustaining a knock the day before, be it a deadleg or a slight pull somewhere, is totally irrelevant when comparing like for like to what the professional game demands today when playing twice a week. The standards fitness wise and sustainability wise are massive now compared to 40 years back IMO.

    Not sure I agree with that.

    Pitches are like bowling greens now, compared to what they used to be like. Balls are better and dangerous tackles outlawed. And all we had back then was Charlie Strong’s bucket and sponge.

    Fitness standards may be higher and that’s my point. Sports science has been the “in” thing for a couple of decades. Out with the bucket and sponge and in with the the ultrasound scan. Out with the steak and eggs, in with the muscle building supplements.

    Explosive sprinting is not new, neither is it confined to football. If players are regularly getting hamstring and groin injuries then perhaps the sports science isn’t as high-tech after all. Sure the game has changed, but so has training and physiotherapy.

    Perhaps they should be doing proper pre-match warm ups instead of those strange little routines they go through now.
