Sports asthma (or exercise-induced bronchoconstriction to be more accurate) is an actual thing. It's not actually 'asthma' in a technical sense but can be treated with asthma medication.

 

I've also heard on a few occasions that elite athletes push themselves so close to the limit of human athletic achievement that they're actually bordering on being unhealthy.

 

It'd be interesting to know more details but I wouldn't be surprised if most of those Liverpool players with 'asthma' actually have 'sports asthma'. The number does seem extremely high but being an elite athlete does means you're more likely to have it, apparently.

 

 :dunno:

Interesting, thanks. I’d be interested to hear what sports scientists / academics think about it.
 

Your explanation sounds legit but it could equally be a cover: we’re training really hard so we need medicine to help our lungs.

 

And if elite sportsmen are pretty much the only ones affected, it would give an advantage to the top, and leave the lesser sportsmen, and poorer clubs probably, at a disadvantage.

Last season it was the big 6 and Leicester in the media talk.

 

Now we have this.

 

We also in the 2nd row of managers.

 

Sky sports article has us as a title contender, saints only get mentioned as outsider for europe, wolves everton no mentions at all.

 

Feels good.

Not really arsed tbf, it's literally a picture and a headline that Sky create.

Still some BS at a time when Southampton and Aston Villa are up there with us shaking it up.

 

OGS and his mid-table wastemen should be nowhere near that line-up if they're really trying to single out the 'contenders'.

They did finish above us and qualified for the Champions League.  Hardly mid-table.

Meant to be a WHU player, not Mason Greenwood, who everyone seemed to be naming on social media earlier.

Where did you hear it was a WHU player?
 
Updated article says man it 20s so it’s not Greenwood.

Yeah it was updated after everyone named Greenwood, he's been being kept away from the United squad because a friend committed suicide apparently.

The picture of the football says WHU on it, so not sure if that's a subtle clue from them, or just pure coincidence. I guess we'll find out in the next few days.

Unlikely it's a West Ham player.

 

Cheshire police made the arrest.

They aren't finishing above us this year. You can quote me on that in May. Their top 4 finish was entirely on us bottling it, not on them being anything more than mediocre.
