Got to wonder if we are doing something wrong somewhere (not saying we are before I get jumped on), just wondering, there's bad luck then there's getting about 4 injuries a week! 3 hammy's in 10 days is it?

yeah, it really does feel like we get a lot of injuries but it might just be the same as every other team. someone's gotta have the stats somewhere!

The one good thing about international breaks is they let your injured players heal up a bit without missing games. At least 2 weeks if Bobby's hamstring recovery will be during the break. Hopefully get Milner, Jones and Gomez back when we return.

Terrible time to lose him. Fancy Minamino to come in and put a good personal run together when needed, but this is fucking crap, especially with Afcon looming. Ah well, game at a time.

If he's out the whole month he'll have missed about the same amount of playing time in 2021 through injury as he did in all of 2015-2020.  The age curve does actually exist but hopefully this is just a bad run of luck for him.

I suspect it's more the case that the drop off after one or two injuries hits us is bigger than for the squads we are competing with.

This isn’t really a post just for this thread, but as Bobby’s the latest in a long line, it’s notable that injuries, whilst they’ve always been with us and part of the game, appear to me to be even more prevalent these last couple of seasons.

We train and play with high intensity, and rely on a smaller pool of players than say, City and Chelsea. That’s essentially Klopp’s way and choice. But the increase of International breaks due to the plethora of demands now made on players (Nation’s League ffs) is surely a contributing factor, and as Courtois has been brave enough to say, getting ridiculous.

My hope is they’re trying to pull a fast one on Brazil 😂
My first thought as well! ;D
It's just the way Jurgen delivered the updates of all the injuries. It sounded ahem.... "suspect". Like- "We'll try to see after the International break, but not before- I CANNOT PROMISE THAT!" ;D
And a few other "suspicious" nuances, such as the repeated mention of the International break and the general lack of no dates- even suspected ones, which we normally do.

Maybe I'm reading too much into it(I'm prone to this), but here ya go:

Quote
“Bobby is not good news with a serious hamstring injury, really unfortunate,” Klopp told liverpoolfc.com.

“We don’t know exactly how long he will be out but it will be not now after the international break directly [that sounds like he's tripping over words]. We have to work on that.”

The Liverpool boss added in his pre-match press conference: “Losing Bobby Firmino is a blow. We have known for two days it was serious. We are talking weeks, still. More than four [again- seems to make it up as he goes]. I’d consider that a serious injury. Then we have to see. Bobby is a quick healer.”

Defender Joe Gomez and midfielder Curtis Jones also missed the Atletico victory and will not be available for Sunday’s trip to West Ham.

“Curtis is a completely different story; he was very unlucky in training – he got a finger that scratched the eye,” [eh!?] added Klopp.

“I had a lot of injuries to players in my career, that was not involved. He is on the way back but we have to see how long exactly. [that's random]

“He will be back after the international break, for sure, but in the international break we have to see [going back and forth] when he can start doing proper stuff again.

“And Joey, hopefully after the international break as well.” [again - AFTER the international break]

Klopp also provided an update on James Milner and Naby Keita: “For them, I hope for after the international break, but I don’t know exactly. I cannot promise that but that’s what we’re working on.” [L0L! ]

Like I said maybe I've got "itching ears" and want to read more into it than what is there, so judge for yeself.
