Towns injury updates

Post by hallamblue » Fri Nov 01, 2019 2:17 pm

Striker Freddie Sears suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury at Norwich back in February, with the club releasing footage of him returning to training earlier this week.

"Freddie did some jump training two days ago," explained Henry.

"I think you're still talking about a number of months until he is fully fit. We have to be careful with the risk of re-injury. He's probably a few months away still Freddie."

Jack Lankester missed the second half of last season after suffering a stress fracture in his back in January. The teenager returned to action in pre-season, but suffered a new stress fracture and had to undergo surgery.


"Jack Lankester has a back problem and that's probably going to take from now until the end of the season that," revealed Henry.

Teddy Bishop, who has had a torrid time with injuries over the last few years, suffered a knee injury during the pre-season tour of Germany. That injury was said to have a three month time frame for recovery.

"Bishop is doing well," said Henry. "He had a medial strain. He's been doing some strength work, he's started to do some aerobic work today, so again we're talking about a number of weeks before he's out on the grass."

I think we've done really well with injuries.

"(Physio) Matt (Byard) has probably been a little bit under-resourced over the last few seasons, but we're starting to get on top of that now.

"We're starting to send our players to Ireland for assessment. Matt's over in Doha right now with Kane Vincent-Young (groin injury) seeing a specialist.

"The club is spending a lot of money on preventing and treating injuries and I think it's only a matter of time before that makes a difference."


Previously, Town players spent time at Aspetar*** in Doha, which describes itself as the “world's leading specialised orthopaedic and sports medicine hospital”, in the summer of 2018.

Interesting once again, that since Lambert and his team has been here, the Club now approaches injuries, and rehab differently , ie sending players to Doha ( where I think there is an advanced International Rehabilitation institute).


From the updating of the training facilities, to include a players rest area after training sessions), to players now being sent to an Internationally renowned institute of medical and rehabilitation facility, just wtf was McCarthy doing in his 6 years at this Club? Lambert has achieved more in his first year here, than that pillock ever appeared to do in all his 5-6 years this Club.

The injury situation with those 4 would indicate we won't see any of them this season.

I think it's obvious now MM didn't really care about the culture of the club or the fans. I was also impressed with Lambert when I read this article this morning. Simple things like blue paint and signs with the club name are bringing back the club's identity after years of decline. I'm a bit surprised ME had let things go so far (tight c*ck!). I said years ago the playing surface at Playford Road probably had something to do with all the injuries we've had over the years. And as you say Hallam, Lambert's approach to injury recovery seems superior to previous managers. I'm glad our squad is deep enough to allow extra time for recovery...once again a product of Lambert's management.

Lambert is a breath of fresh air at this Club. I hope we can hang onto him as long as possible .

He's the best thing that's happened to this club in years, irrespective of if we go up or not, it needs to be a long term relationship.
