I'm amazed why more full backs can't play both sides. It's such a great versatility. I can only think of Azpilicueta and Lahm who done it successfully at a high level. 

 

Maybe in the coming years we will see a huge trend in full backs being equally good on both sides. We've seen inverted wingers and ball playing  goal keepers. Versatile full backs will ne next.

...is this to combat the inverted winger!!!

   The way the game has progressed seems to be defining the requirements of a manufactured player in order to combat something new. Good to see the dexterity of our Fullbacks but we can't be looking askew at defenders who can only play on one side.

The Welsh one is TNS, isn't it? Without looking it up, I think they were called Total Network Solutions, but changed it to The New Saints.

 

As the famous commentary after a TNS victory goes...

 

"They'll be dancing in the streets of Total Network Solutions tonight!"

Can we please stop with all this.

I doubt anybody on here is a qualified physio/sports scientist and even if they are they haven't assessed the player.

Must have been 50 different prognosis and timeframes for recovery last night.

'Ooh that happened to me when 20 years ago and took me years to recover'

Yep! Shocking that discussants would express personal opinions/suspicions on a DISCUSSION forum

I have to say that this is a pretty annoying effort at a putdown. He's right - go back and look at how many people were confidently and repeatedly telling us it was DEFINITELY an ACL injury. And what most people discuss in pub chat doesn't bear repetition, quite frankly (and no, I'd be no fun there either!).

@hackneyfox was being unnecessarily "sanctimonious" (you just gottta love FT). lol 

 

There was absolutely NOTHING in my comment (nor in any comment that I have EVER made about Justin) that can be rationally classified as profferring a specific (nor in fact, any) medical condition or injury. There have been several instances where the managers says that the player is okay but decides to hold him out for a particular game (Under's recent "tightening" of the hamstring readily comes to mind, among others).

 

Noticed that there is a tribe here that has seemingly constituted themselves into self-anointed arbiters of the substance of the comments of others or what players may be criticized. My (admittedly unsolicited) counsel to these lot is that they should simply scroll past the comments/posts they do not personally care for or proffer contrary substantive opinions if/where they disagree - rather than straying into Richard-Head territory.

So long as you're not being defensive about it for no reason whatsoever...

LOL! Strange how of all the specific "medical" opinions, he choose my innocuous comment to be a Richard-Head about... lol

Take it as a mark of respect fella - perhaps he expected nothing better elsewhere...

Fairly sure I saw JJ this afternoon at the Shell garage just north of the new training centre, on the A46. Put his mask on just as he got out of a bright blue Range Rover Sport (it was the car that drew my attention, as I was stood paying), and he had a hoodie on, so not 100% sure it was him. Was definitely limping on his right leg, though, but no sign of a knee brace or crutches - which has to be a positive sign.

Sorry I quoted your post and you took it personally.

Couldn't be bothered to quote everyone who gave their medical opinions, would have taken all night. Could have quoted a few more today as well.

Sanctimonously yours :P

Really hoping its good news, but I'd question why Justin and Youri are playing near enough the full 90 of every game. Its no surprise they are going to pick up injuries. I know the importance of these players but better to miss the odd game than the rest of the season especially when you have opportunities to rest ie fa cup

An accusation of being sanctimonious on here is an absolute badge of honour. I tend to interpret it as 'I have no other counter argument'.

Interesting but I would ask, does Brendan know the games that they would get injured in so he can avoid playing them in those games?
