Seriously not picking another Liverpool player in defence in fantasy team. Had Gomez, replaced him with Lovren then changed him for TAA. Will have to find space for another city defender given my current record!

Cheers.

I literally did exactky the same, only I just swapped Trent for Matip 👀.


2.) 15 Jan 2019 15:36:36
Robbo is the top-scoring defender. You obviously just make bad choices! ;)


3.) 15 Jan 2019 17:05:39
I swear Greggers, you keep Robbo out of your team! 😉😂.

I avoid picking Liverpool players at all, if I pick them they get injured or don’t score points. People think I’m mental but refuse to risk it.

{Ed025's Note - nutty as a squirrel,s fart if you ask me WYred.. :)


5.) 15 Jan 2019 19:53:08
I haven’t had a red in my team for 2 years so not to jinx them. Filled with mancs city spurs arsenal Chelsea players👍 . The winner of our league gets about £700 quid too😢😢.

The type of strapping on Salah's shoulder looks like leukotape with hypafix which is primarily used for stabilisation as it is a pretty rigid tape. Completely different to widely used modern K-tape. The position of the tape would likely indicate a requirement to stabilise the AC joint. This joint can commonly sublux (partial dislocation) or separate on falling or impact such as tackling in rugby. There could also be the case that the player is requesting the tape for a feeling of security when there is not in fact a clinical reason to apply it. If this is the case then we can safely say that Salah has not psychologically overcome the injury. If the tape is necessary it clearly has its benefits at stabilising the AC ligament or possibly retracting the shoulder to help inhibit muscles at the front of the shoulder to stop the shoulder being pulled forwards. The negative impact would come from a sensory point of view. With the tape being quite rigid in nature it may slightly restrict movement but also Salah will be able to feel the tape on shoulder movement. This could potentially lead to abnormal movements of the shoulder due to altered sensory cues received from the feeling of the tape. In this case the position of the tape could potentially encourage elevation (shrugging) of the left shoulder which could greatly effect balance.
If there is no clinical evidence of joint instability at this stage I would question the necessity of the strapping and whether it is potentially having more detrimental affects.

Cheers.

Great post.
I would be tempted to rip it off him, slap him on the arse and say “there ya go, you don’t need that, now go score me a goal”.


2.) 04 Oct 2018 22:10:25
What’s this? An intelligent and well informed post? Take your devils scripture to another website please greggers! 😉.


3.) 04 Oct 2018 22:35:46
Good info greggers. When I was younger I hurt my ankle pretty badly. I had it taped and it was very restrictive however psychologically it helped me a great deal. It was like a safety blanket for me. I can see however how it would work in the opposite direction.


4.) 04 Oct 2018 23:40:51
I swear it was salahs right shoulder that was injured. The picture shows his left shoulder with tape. Apologies if i've got confused its been a long dag.


5.) 05 Oct 2018 10:44:24
the psychological part of the recovery is often not thought of by fans. and especially as it's his shoulder it can be easy to minimize the impact on his game. I don't want to make excuses for salah but he just seems like he is missing something, and at that elite level it is fine margins that make a big difference.

whatever it is hope that he is wokring through and gets back to his best soon!


6.) 05 Oct 2018 10:55:58
You took the words right out of my mouth, greggers.


7.) 06 Oct 2018 08:11:42
All I’ll say is playing him when he’s struggling will not help him psychologically.
The poor lad was thrashed last season and it culminated in an awful champions league final where he got a bad injury. Then he was rushed back for an awful World Cup.

Give him a proper rest. Give him a holiday. Work on his rehab (physically and mentally) and then bring him back gradually.
I’d rather have half a season of a fully firing Salah than a full season of a struggling Salah.

Given a lot of the discussion around fekirs historical acl injury and the news of the Ox's injury I thought I would share some info regarding recovery rates of the injuries.

A study published in the British journal of sports medicine showed 83% of elite athletes returned to pre injury sport following acl reconstruction with there being a 5% rate of graft re-rupture. Despite rupture rates being low it would still harbour some concerns amongst the medical team particularly in the event of further injuries on the same knee. By the same token this injury is no longer seen as the career ender that it used to be.

Regarding the multi ligament injury suffered by the ox, evidence would suggest recovery does not reproduce a particularly positive prognosis. A systematic review this year shows only a 22-33% return to top level sport following this kind of injury. Obviously the club and fans will be desperate for a positive outcome but given the real possibility he may not return to his current level I don't doubt the club will already be drawing up contingencies for the upcoming seasons.

I would say that having worked with some top orthopaedic consultants they would argue much more favourable outcomes with their greater concerns being long term, possible early degenerative complications in older adult life.

Apologies if this seems really doom and gloom. Brilliant positive transfer window up to now and praying for a positive recovery for the ox with whom I continue to be impressed with regards his actions and character.

Cheers.

This has made me sad.

Top post greggers. thanks 👍.


4.) 18 Jul 2018 21:30:28
I recall something like this being posted a couple weeks back, wasn’t the study done in 2004?
Apologies if this is an up to date one but if not the chances could be a lot higher now :)


5.) 18 Jul 2018 22:06:10
Greggers do the outcomes in the study vary depending on (I) which sport is being played and (ii) the injury history of the patient?


6.) 18 Jul 2018 22:51:03
Both studies were systematic reviews over various research papers so will have included various sports. I have seen some papers suggest returns to pre injury performance only at 60-65% in football but then spoken with consultants who suggest their results be closer to 95% so on reflection the reviews average 83% figure may not be a million miles off. Seemingly basketball players have lower returns to previous levels according to research but given the volume of jumping, pivot and impact from lunging that’s not a surprise.

I know that both reviews were carried out in the past 2 years and analysed over 20 research papers. Without reading through each paper reviewed I am not sure about the exact inclusion criteria in reference to previous medical history. To be honest I was surprised that the re-rupture rate was as low as 5%. Given how the injury continues to be perceived you would imagine this would be higher.

Cheers.


7.) 19 Jul 2018 00:03:37
Reading that has made me feel sad for Ox if it’s as bad as that. He’s a top bloke. Genuinely felt upset reading that. Hopefully Ox can make as full a recovery and beat the odds.


8.) 19 Jul 2018 08:29:18
Cheers greggers, appreciate you following up with a timeline and more information :) when I tried googling some kept saying 2004 so I gave up xD wasn’t searching properly I guess haha.

{Ed001's Note - just to point something out I noticed Greggers was discussing, I think the problems with basketball players is probably more to do with the hard courts they play on. Not so much the jump as the landing I would suggest that holds them back. It is the mental side that has become the biggest problem to recovery and a hard landing is going to prey on your mind, like a sudden burst of acceleration does for a footballer.}


9.) 19 Jul 2018 09:48:12
Ed001 you are absolutely right regarding the psychological barriers impacting return to sport. Many players suffer from fear, avoidance when approaching certain movements which will impact their ability to regain a full recovery.

Playing surfaces definitely play a part as well. Rapid deceleration puts significant stress on the knee so you are right the landing and lunging aspect of basketball will stress the knee more. It is why in football recently there has been significant efforts to find correct boots for 3/ 4g surfaces. The prevalence of injury on these surfaces appears to be greater and it is suggested that standard moulds (particularly rubber), blades and astroturf trainers effectively over grip and stick to the surface increasing the risk of in particular ligament injuries.

Cheers.

Thanks Greggers very informative.

Thanks for the reply Ed. I also hope that the rumour is true and that we actually comply with correct procedures to ensure we don’t fall foul of any further breaches of legislation that may impose serious sanctions on the club.

Cheers.

Let’s be honest Liverpool and standard transfer protocol is hardly a match made in heaven. Just for clarification I’m assuming the club has still not made direct contact with Lyon?

Cheers.

Greggers

{Ed002's Note - My understanding is that they have.}

It's my birthday Tuesday, here's hoping for a really good present not one of those you pretend to like just to be polite but secretly are hugely disappointed with.

Cheers.

Ah, makes sense. Thanks for clearing that up! Very impressive smokescreen I must say! What substance would make the thickest smoke?

Christ I genuinely think reading the same things over and over has sent me a bit mental. How do you eds cope?

Cheers.

Gradually ease TAA into centre mid and buy wan-bisaka. Happy days.
Also happy new year to everybody. Getting hammered in Cape Verde so no way I will be in any shape to message later!

Cheers.

Given the severity of the injury I would be amazed if he is back in Feb but fingers crossed. Also if the midfield is still performing well I can’t see the club feeling the need to rush him back. I think every effort will be made to ensure he can get back without any risk of setbacks.

Cheers.

Ed001 if a first choice right back was brought in would you see TAA gradually integrated into midfield and also playing at fullback in certain games?

Cheers.

Greggers

{Ed001's Note - yes probably.}

Easy to forget keepers used to catch the ball! So much pressure eased when they caught it. Bruce’s agility was unreal, not to mention the obligatory walking on hands after a cup final or end of season.

Cheers.

Its so frustrating the negative approaches of teams towards city. Lyon have had a go twice, won one and drew one, wolves had a go and drew, we had a go and drew, hoffenheim had a go and were narrowly beaten late on. I appreciate nobody wants to get spanked and goal difference can be important but I'm surprised teams don't see playing City as a free hit. The sitting back approach does not appear to work so teams may as well have a go. Sitting back on the whole doesn't even seem to keep the score down. Will be interesting to see the Chelsea and everton approach in the next couple of weeks.

Cheers.

Greggers

{Ed001's Note - Bournemouth, to be fair, had a go and were robbed at 2-1 when they should have had a blatant penalty. If they had sat back City would have stomped all over them.}
