The Trezeguet Thread

wittonite

I speak from a point of total ignorance
the main reason jack was ineffectual before his injury is because we had become to play against and most managers knew that if you stop jack then you stop villa and smith needed to box cleaver with him and not keep playing the same system 4-2-3-1 and its no wonder we are over run in the middle and we play a lot of hoofing and long ball
i know its not the done thing anymore but i would like too see a 4-4-2 now and then
I dont think its the system we play that causes us to be over run in the middle, its fundementally because it is the weakest part in our squad in term of personel.
Whichever way we set up we are weak in that area, and its where we desperately need to strenghten in the close season.

So, thoughts on Louie Barry....

:sorry:

Genuine question actually, has anyone seen a proper timeframe linked to what actual damage was done? Everything I've seen is the standard 'could be 9 months, but could be 12 months'.

Just to back up what JPA is saying.

Folks, you've got to meet us half way, far too many threads are going way off topic and ending up about that one player, or the manager, when the threads really aren't about either.

Appreciate the help, probably not so much being ignored. Don't want to start having to delete, or indeed ban, but need a bit of reasonable cooperation now.

I genuinely had no idea what thread I was in, so off topic was the chat, so I piled in accidentally making it even more off topic.

I would apologise but I blame my upbringing.

Don't think at this stage they'd be certain. But the Wesley tackle was a horrible one and calculated to do damage. Don't think this one was anything like that bad.

Wondered if it was too early because surgery hadn't yet taken place (and it always seems regardless of scans, it's only once opened up people actually know), but also wondered if it was simply our 'communication channels' are now less forthcoming than ever.

A "bog standard" ACL tear, with no other related issues such as cartilage, other ligaments etc is about 9 months + (think Heaton). If there is additional damage then it's minimum 12 months (think Wes).
My ACL was accompanied by minor meniscus damage and patella tendonitis. It was a full 12 months before I was playing "full contact" again....
