Thomas will step up. It’s a bitter shame for Justin because he was nailed on for a European spot in the England set up. The argument of playing weaker teams in the FA cup doesn’t really hold, Justin would want to play, and it was freak accident, he could have easily have done it in training. We will be alright, we’ve got Timmy “glass ankles” Castagne due back and Thomas ready and waiting.

Thomas and Barnes have really played well together when on the pitch at the same time so far. They seem to use each other to raise their respective levels.

And yet Puel got absolutely hammered for daring to rest people in cup games. 

Puel had no excuse and likely cost us two finals with his selections against Man City. This season I think it can be a bit forgiven due to the toughest schedule we could possibly face.

Just been through the match thread, not a single person mentions Justin being an injury risk and only one persons jokingly said what's he got to do to get a rest. 

Always happens.

Pre match: "Great team selection"

Post match: "We lost because blah blah...".

A valid point. But we weren't pushing for a top 4 spot under Puel. Nor were we playing such a congested schedule.

And we didn't have the strength we currently do at full back. Plus the schedule isn't much more congested than before. In fact it's probably very similar with us getting to both cup quarter finals that season.

It is of course. But I think folk on here have been mentioning for weeks that JJ and Youri never get a rest - then low and behold!!!

 

 

Some players need more rest than others. I'm sure the sports science team have been assessing the risk of individual players. If this was a wear and tear kind of injury these points would hold merit but if it's an ACL they do not. It's like if someone breaks their leg and moaning that it's because the player hadn't had a rest.

Yes, it's highly unfortunate, of course. But lo and behold, sadly the fact that people said he needed the rest and the fact he's injured does not mean he got injured because they thought he needed a rest. He landed awkwardly, which could happen at any time, and in the most innocuous circumstances too.

Obviously not mate they should listen to random people on Foxestalk.

There's no way it's 9 months, Brendan wouldnt have said it was better than was first feared if it was that serious. It will be a short to mid term injury, a long term one just doesnt make sense with what has already been said.

He's quite often wrong on injuries unfortunately. I remember Castagne being about a week away for two months earlier this season.

I suspect that's 'managing expectations' (or manipulation if you prefer a more negative slant on it) rather than being wrong.

I've got a horrible feeling that he's out for the rest of the season at least.

 

Having had more than my fair share of injuries one of the worst I've had is ligament damage getting in a bath after a game. The day it happened I felt OK ish, knee was sore, but had full range of movement. Could walk etc

 

The day after I got out of bed and crumbled to the floor. I couldn't put any weight on it at all

I'd swap champions league football and getting a few rounds further in the Europa for winning the FA Cup any day of the week.

In a normal season I wouldn’t.

 

This season, definitely. I’d have really mixed feelings if we won the FA Cup this year - for the first time in the club’s history - and there were no fans at the ground to see it.

Massive few weeks ahead for Thomas and Fuchs. This is such a shame (if true). Arguably our best player this season and an actual game changer as well as being solid at the back. Praying the itk's here are actually nitk's
