I’ve been saying for YEARS that SOMETHING’S not right with our training, recruitment & rehab? Methods.


My thoughts are this.......

Town needs to look at the aetiology and trend of all injuries sustained at this Club over the past 5 seasons. We have been blighted by long term injuries for years now. So something is wrong with either of the following or a mix of them.

1) TYPE OF PLAYER recruited. Age bracket. Previous injury record.
2) WHEN injury has occurred, ie pre season, pre match, during training, during game ( 1st or 2nd half)
3) HOW injury occurred ie mechanism of injury.
4) REHAB Criteria. Is it supported by current evidenced base for best practice?
5) TRAINING Criteria. Is supported by evidence based practice. Is it tailored to individuals.

Intrinsic factors: Are the players strong enough? Flexible enough, have adequate endurance, do players have adequate technique etc etc ( these factors link in with item 2)

Extrinsic factors: Types of surface players train on. Footwear used, Time of day training occurs. How many times a day? Adequate rest? Mix of types of training? etc, etc


Town have got to get a complete dossier on ALL of the above aspects in order to resolve this problem.

Injuries such as the type, quantity, degree of seriousness, do not happen at other Championship Clubs to level that ITFC have consistently suffered over the past 3-4 years. SOMETHING is not being done correctly at this Club. It’s about time they have finally decided to take a serious look at this.

Yep, good news. Especially when Ipswich Towns more prominent "big name" sicknote, David McGoldrick has just played 45 out of 46 games for Sheffield United remaining unscathed and scoring 15 goals.

Keeping in line with the thread topic; by hiding, do you believe he was possibly faking injury?

It's been said somewhere Mcgoldrick's commuting between Ipswich and his home up north was a contributing factor to his injuries and recovery.

Personally I just think Webster was a sicknote that season which was out of character, we got unlucky

Fair enough.

I, along with a few others, am concerned with the frequency with which our players seem to get injured.
Mainly knee & ankle injuries, certainly this season. Something appears to be fundamentally wrong somewhere along the line.

I agree. Hallam has said for years that she thinks something must be wrong and evidence certainly supports that view.

And I see in the EADT that we are still interested in Will Keane. With a limited budget and squad size, we should think long and hard before signing anyone with a poor fitness record.

The fact that he was the highest paid player and was still commuting such long distances makes me feel he wasn’t committed to the club. He pretty much said it himself that it was a bit comfortable and easy. Being out of contract gave him a big kick up the arse and got him fit again... and being in a team who played to his strengths and were competing at the top kept him fit.
