Injuries have been the main talking point in our season so far with the list going up to 15 names at one point of the players who were out of action, but now the injury crisis seems to be finally taking a step back as squad look to be on their way back.
The midfield has been a real problem this season with the likes of Sam Field, Beram Kayal, and Josh Cullen all out injured. I admit Kayal had very little impact on the team due to injuries but he could have been a fantastic player and I really wish we saw more of him.
Sam Field is thankfully back in training and also played half an hour of behind closed doors football at West Brom, but dare I talk about Josh Cullen after what happened last time? Of course I will.
With Cullen he got injured in training on Friday which confirms what I’ve always been questioning about myself, I can see into the future.
Obviously I’m joking, but still, it’s a bit mad how he’s got injured on Friday after I posted that story on Tuesday, I’m just hoping I didn’t curse him.
Speaking with The South London Press Lee Bowyer had this to say
“Josh took one on the end of his toe and jarred his ankle a little bit and he couldn’t travel with us. That was all on Friday.”
Also Bowyer spoke about the reason Chris Solly was not involved in the game this weekend and no it was not because it was his birthday
“He [Solly] just wasn’t feeling the best, so that killed us.”
It does seem whenever a player is close there is just constant setbacks, I don’t think there has been one player who has come back without a complication this season, it really is a serious thing that needs to be looked at over the summer, I don’t want to say the medical team are not doing a good job because it literally could just be unfortunate circumstances, but there has to be something more to it.
