FFS. And all because of another meaningless friendly the day after our first competitive game of the new season. 

 

It's obviously not ideal, but we've still got Matip and Gomez, both able deputies to partner Van Djik, and both with sound injury reco.......

 

As you were.

Yes we have,for now. You dont want to lose a player who was becoming a regular before a ball is kicked in anger in a new season. Just ridiculous planning of a game.

Looks like months rather than weeks.

 

Fucking shite.

 

He was looking so good last season and was so important in helping us manage Matip's workload - which was obviously so helpful in Matipn staying injury free.

 

The knock on effects of this injury are likely to be massive now.

We've got Gomez fully fit, and Phillips as 5th choice.

 

Why does everything have to be so dire with you?

Gomez is extremely injury prone and Phillips is very limited.

 

You want to call it seeing stuff as dire - i just see it as being realistic.

 

Konate really helped with managing Matip's workload last season - the way they rotated meant Matip rarely had to play 2/3 times a week....put Matip back under that load and chances are he breaks down again.

 

Hopefully not of course and hopefully Gomez stays fit too - but history tells us in same way it does with Thiago and Keita for example that it is more likely than not that Konate's absence will have knock on effects on two very injury prone players who we will now be heavily relying on to stay fit...that, mate IMHO is not seeing things as dire, it is just going off what we have seen regularly before.

Well call out the manager then. Its clear he's not seeing what is obvious to you.

Our squad is mostly boss (midfield aside where i think we have quite a bit of room for improvement) but being as injury ravaged as we are at present is a real blow and the Konate one is IMHO big, big blow if it is for as long as rumoured - for the reasons i stated earlier.

 

That's it. 

 

Hopefully Matip and Gomez hold up and get us through this period. Would be nice to see Gomez have an extended period where he is injury free, lad has had so much rotten luck.
