Well inspired by my rotten mood after that bloody shambolic goal which should have been disallowed and two fresh injuries, im beginning to wonder, is it just bad luck? It was quite well publicised that training has become much, much harder under Benitez and the new staff. More work on fitness which is bound to have a big effect on the body, a lot more strenuous. Is this contributing to the injuries that our players are getting? I personally doubt it but just something I was thinking about.
The other theory ive heard being bandied about is, are the players warming up properly? This would have an obvious effect, cold muscles and all that, especially after looking at Garcia pulling up tonight. Maybe our players are just a little bit frailer than everyone elses. maybe it really is just very, very, very, very bad luck.
I personally am completely in the dark about things like this, I do know not warming up properly is very dangerous, playing both basketball and football a vigorous warm up is deemed crucial. Anyone who knows a bit more about the human physique than myself can probably give some sort of idea on how harder training would effect the players in terms of stress on their bodes.
My opinion having though about it a bit is it must be bad luck, I mean I hope it would be anyway, taking into account that both Josemi's and Cisse's were complete freak incidents being one reason. The other being the fact that our coaches are professionals and should have an extensive knowledge of what the players can and cant cope with in terms of physical stress.
Would be interesting to hear any other opinions, especially from people who know what their talking about, because I evidently dont
