INJURIES

Recommended Posts

I have read with interest my fellow FT comments and where we see the team being at. My thoughts are we are a very good side and with Rodgers and a bit of tweaking we can challenge the top 6 gap. Our problem will be if we have many injuries. We just don’t have strength in depth like the top 6 do and unless we get an injury free run like the miracle season it will always be a bridge too far to sustain a regular challenge.

I don’t have access to figures but I would imagine we are towards the bottom of the premier league injury stats these last few years which is a credit to our backroom staff but moving forward I think this will be our Achilles heel.

The real worry is if Vardy got injured and the goals dry up. Nevermind Top 6 we'd be bottom three with our current options!

Let's hope not they usually take around 6 months to clear up properly.

At least, had mine for 9 months and it's still not great. Fine for most of the time, but don't ask me to break into a jog for more than a few metres. :(

This is what I’m saying we are a couple of injuries away from a disaster

We have had injuries tbh; James, Maguire, Evans, Morgan, Maddison, Vardy and Albrighton all picked up injuries of some sort this year.

You can say the same about every club in the league aside from Man City. Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs and United don’t have any  meaningful depth.

 

We need a centre mid and a striker, we’re not far off otherwise.

We have no real like for like to replace him either, unless we can sign a Callum Wilson, as was being mentioned late on last season - then again he's injury prone! Great to see Vardy finish in the top 5 Prem. strikers for two consecutive seasons now, in spite of finishing 9th in both of them!

Who were the clubs' top goal-scorers, not including Vardy, from last season?

Imagine Maddison would've been up there.

Maddison, Tielemans, Gray.
