Foley was fit for the  Wigan game as he was on the bench but didn't come on. He the disappeared again for two games, mystifying really as I don't see how he could have been injured.

And the same with George smith, he was on the bench for Bradford and then not in the squad last night - granted Hanley had a good game yesterday but are we saying that kasim is rated a better bet than foley and Hanley a better bet than smith? Also no injury update on McWilliams so I hope this means he's fit and available for Saturday.

Oops, I missed him out.

Think the last update was "a couple of weeks", bang on two weeks ago.

So would think a week at most if he isn't fit for Saturday?

While I concede that 2 months is infinitely better than 7 months I canít see how this can be seen as anything other than terrible news when we are desperate for results (and goals) right now. If jjot is not going to return any time soon as suggested by insider then we are seriously scratching around for quality not just up front but also now in midfield - all we need now is an injury to ash Taylor and we are in a crisis!

Was on the bench at the weekend unless injured in the warm up/training.

Is it official that crooks is out for 6 weeks or is it based on what the guy who spoke to him over the weekend posted - I'm sure I haven't read anything from the club about it?


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Irchy cob on October 03, 2017, 20:37:46 pm
Yet another injury by the sounds of it, moloney's had to come off - we've got no cover at right back with Phillips out.

It's OK. We can play Powell RWB, I'm glad Edinburgh got him used to the position.

Post by: Irchy cob on October 03, 2017, 21:19:48 pm
It's OK. We can play Powell RWB, I'm glad Edinburgh got him used to the position.

I'm sure he'll get shoehorned in there somehow - I literally can't think of any other solution - but now that we're not playing wing backs and Powell can't defend or tackle I can potentially see a few problems - let's hope moloney shakes off whatever injury he picked up.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: guest143 on October 03, 2017, 21:21:22 pm
Does George Smith have a decent right foot? According to Jimmy's interview after the game, Barnett is injured as well.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Irchy cob on October 03, 2017, 21:42:09 pm
The amount of injuries weíre picking up is starting to get ridiculous - I get that heís having to work them hard in training but I wonder how many of these are down to fatigue.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Irchy cob on October 03, 2017, 21:56:16 pm
Would have thought that Poole could do a job at right back.

Heís missing on international duty.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: guest2677 on October 04, 2017, 00:16:26 am
I've said this before, Hoskins is the man, except he's another of the injured.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: guest2995 on October 04, 2017, 07:52:50 am
I wonder if he will play McWilliams brother at right back who is supposed to be the next best prospect coming through


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: The Rauldinho on October 04, 2017, 09:28:49 am
Moloney and Barnett added to the list now.

Poole can play RB but is away on International Duty, do we dare start a youngster in Cameron McWilliams? I hope so.

What is the worst that could happen?

'Fort that Poole only misses one league game which is this Sat?

Poole is only missing the Bristol game but the concern would be if moloney is missing for a length of time - Poole has been outstanding in midfield and to shift him to rb would mean disrupting both areas. If moloney is out the options look like either playing a left footer on the wrong side, Powell at rb or Cameron McWilliams - Iíd probably go for the latter if that is his natural position. What side does bodin play on for Bristol - if heís left sided heís going to give whoever is at rb a real test?


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: The Rauldinho on October 04, 2017, 10:37:07 am
'Fort that Poole only misses one league game which is this Sat?

Correct, so if Moloney is not fit then we need an RB for Saturday. Poole would have been my first choice as Foley could cover the midfield.

As he is not there, I would rather an inexperienced RB play there than a wide midfielder with about 2/3 games experience at that position (Powell).


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Poggy on October 04, 2017, 10:41:40 am
Moloney is fine to play on Saturday by all accounts.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Irchy cob on October 04, 2017, 10:58:43 am

Anyone but Powell at RB - he canít stop fouling when trying to defend .
Hopefully Moloney will be fine
We desperately need some of these players back , especially Long , Hoskins and JJOT

Title: Re: Injury Updates....

Moloney, Hoskins & McWilliams all should be fit for Saturday.

Barnett out for 4 weeks - Achilles
Phillips - no return date
Long won't be rushed back - maybe 10 days (hamstring)
O'Toole is joining in with training on non-contact basis - no return date
Crooks out for at least 6 weeks, if he doesn't need surgery - knee

I think that's everyone.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: guest2995 on October 04, 2017, 12:04:04 pm

Title: Re: Injury Updates....

Could do with Barnett and Phillips returning. Moloney looked so tired last game I saw him... Not surprised he came off with muscle fatigue yesterday.

I agree with this, with Barnett, Poole and Phillips all out it meant that we had no choice yesterday but to field Taylor, Pierre and moloney - all of them could have done with a rest but we have no alternatives.

According to JFH the team have done very little training because it's been Saturday-Tuesday-Saturday matches ever since he arrived. He has said this openly and its one of his frustrations because he would like more time on the training field. The fatigue is due to accumulation of games and probably also that JFH's system requires players to be fitter as they have to run around more.

Mainly positive injury news from today:
- Shaun McWilliams and Sam Hoskins are now "fully fit" and available for selection
- Chris Long is "back running" and is "touch and go" for Saturday's game
- John Joe O'Toole is back in full training but won't be ready for Saturday


However Moloney is not training and not available for selection

Aaron Phillips in still injured, but that is more long term.

Maybe fully fit aren't the words I would use. Certainly Hoskins, Foley, McGugan and McWilliams (to a lesser extent) can't be classed as fully fit, but yes, certainly available for selection.

"We think he might be okay for Saturday" the words of JFH on the Chron report.

He didn't train Monday, as is going for a scan. They are unsure what the injury is although they don't think it's a tear.

Fingers crossed.

Post by: guest3063 on October 11, 2017, 15:58:02 pm
Chris Long does have a slight problem with his hamstring (since the Charlton game). However, it hasn't been enough to keep him out of games but does not allow him to be totally free in his movements. Therefore, JFH took the decision to get him right before he returns this time (hopefully), this involved some treatment to his back to try and free up his hamstring.     


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Wolvo on October 27, 2017, 09:41:22 am
Moloney and Mcgugan available for selection.

Crooks is also back in training.

Phillips back doing some light running.

Barnett has protective boot off next week.

Lobjoit and Coddington back from loan.

Iaciofano no news yet.

Goff extended loan to 8th Jan 2018.

I think that rounds it all up!   


Title: Re: Injury Updates....

Post by: The Rauldinho on November 08, 2017, 10:15:38 am
Thought I'd update this as a lot of people are back/injuries have changed (as per tweet from NTFC today):

Long Term:

Phillips (Close to fitness)
Barnett (Back In Training)

Short Term:
JJ (Hopefully fit for Saturday)
Hoskins (Late Decision - Touch and Go)
Revs (Groin Strain picked up in training)


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: guest3063 on November 28, 2017, 20:19:56 pm
JFH has confirmed tonight that Sam Hoskins is back in training. JJOT and Daniel Powell may join in training later in the week. Aaron Pierre back training Wednesday, Aaron Phillips also back with the main group.

That leaves only Alex Revell who had a groin operation 2 weeks ago and is still a further 10 days away from a return.

I can tell you ,Aaron Pierre was not due to play against Blackburn because of injury .

He obviously pulled up early in the game and is now out for three months .

Van Veen back in training and 'touch and go' to be fit for Rovers on Saturday. With the squad well rested from the abandoned Blackpool match, hopefully we don't have a need to throw a half fit Van Veen up top.

Not sure about that - would have thought that the treatment of Moloney has been ok?  As for JJOT perhaps he has been overplayed but always got the impression that JFH has managed him ok with frequent substitutions. Just a different point of view; no pack drill!


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Irchy cob on March 06, 2018, 16:11:27 pm
As I feared it looks like the van veen situation is going to be like the Powell saga from earlier this season - rated as touch and go for every match but not being fit. Until van veen is back we wonít be seeing anything of Poole as Mathis will have to be in the match day squad to cover Long.

I was referring to when they misdiagnosed Moloney, and deemed the rest of the summer period to be sufficient. Only to injure himself in his first preseason game vs Sileby and needing an operation, thus missing preseason and the start of our 2016/17 campaign. Shambolic.

There are no fresh injury concerns for the Cobblers from the weekend defeat at Fleetwood, and there is good news on injured pair Aaron Pierre and Aaron Phillips, who have both been out long term with thigh injuries.

Pierre was back out with the first team squad at Moulton College this morning, going through the warm-ups, while Phillips is also back out running again.

We really miss Pierre .
Much better than Turnbull .

I quite liked Turnbull after his first few appearances.

One thing I did notice Saturday though was how many times he headed the ball into a dangerous position halfway between our box and the centre circle. I couldn't work out if our invisible midfield was at fault for this or if it was just him having a 50p head.

Agreed. I really liked his attitude on the pitch. Could tell he was taking every loss personally and really told a teammate when he felt they should be performing better.

I also feel Taylor played better alongside Pierre. Not sure if it's just my memory playing tricks though...

Not sure what the obsession with Ash Taylor is.......

Are you happy with the current results?

If so, let's just support something which we've not seen for a while - played 3, lost none..........

He will be back in the side when the time is right.  But, when the current back 3 have done so well, he needs to open some doors.  Simple as......

Leon is absent following the medical procedure not having the desired outcome. He could be back in a couple of weeks or it could be very long term.

Why hasn't the club announced this information? Someone even suggested Taylor was at EuroDisney last week - although clearly on a windup. By the way Taylor was at yesterday's game. He was with Morias, maybe both are doing rehab together. I hope Leon's problem isn't too serious.

Other than Cox, I don't believe any of them are actually unfit.

Which makes it all the more remarkable that McWilliams & Morias can't even get a place in the 18...


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: JohnFrainInThe93rd on March 13, 2019, 14:23:30 pm
Morais is injured again - they mentioned it on RN last night.

Agreed with McWilliams, I cant see how he cannot be in the 18 when fit.  Why bother having all 3 of Bridge, Powell, Elsnick, surely Shaun's versatility and the fact he is actually signed on to us would put him on the bench. 

Facey is the other notable fit player who didnt make the 18 last night.

Junior had to attend A&E before the Crewe game due to appendicitis following advice from the Crewe doctor, he had an operation the next day. He will be out for about 4 weeks and is now at home recuperating. It's a shame for Junior he's had a stop start season.

   We don't need to know what the injury is but when nothing is said all sorts of rumours start, if a player is playing well then, suddenly, he's not even in the 18 but there is no mention of injury, then the rumours start, so and so has had a bust up, whatshisname was late for training and the like.

I know you guys have your eyes on domination of the club as laid out in your document-that-wasn't-really-your-document-when-no-one-liked-it but you aren't there yet. You don't own the players and they aren't public property. I've no idea why Turnbull was "unavailable" the other week but it's none of our business. It could have been anything - a bereavement, a sick child, an embarrassing medical issue, problems at home, a disciplinary issue... there's any number of things that might mean he needed some time off for that he might not want to be public knowledge.

You might not like it, but players are entitled to their privacy, even if that goes against the DNA of "the Northampton type".  >:D

Because the club should only say that a player is injured if the player is injured. If a player is unavailable for another reason that could be personal then saying they are injured is misleading the fans. I want a club that is open and upfront with the supporters  ;)

I agree with you 100%, so why was I told the other week when Turnbull was "unavailable" that the reason he was unavailable was because he was injured. With the Morias case, it was posted on here on Weds that he was injured, which is a week and a half after the injury occurred. I heard various rumours last Saturday about Morias and McWilliams, non of the rumours would have surfaced if there had been a simple "He's injured" . So does anyone know why McWilliams has not been in the squad for the last 2 games ?  :-\

No it has to be up to the club, otherwise if xxxxx is not getting picked because he was late for training and is being a general d*ckhead, he's not going to put that out in public, is he?

Right going around in circles.

Morias   Club stated he was unwell. No update until last week nor should there have been. It is not upto the club. personal medical matters should only be divulged when the player is ok with it.  Companies should not reveal personal issues of employees to all and sundry and neither should a football club

Mcwilliams   He was stated as being injured. Prior to Exeter it was said he was now fit but not included in the 18.

I agree to an extent in extreme circumstances but are you seriously suggesting the club should not divulge a hamstring strain that keeps a player out for four weeks as that could be private to the player?  A player breaks a leg and is out for the season and nobody says anything other than unavailable.  It's just not the real world is it?

What next we release a player at the end of his contract but because the player deems it a private matter we only find out when he plays against us?

The Barnett one was tricky and obviously deeply personal.  Appendicitis?

Barton is exactly right in that in a vacuum of information rumours run rife.  At least 4/5 time this season alone the club has had to come out an address situations because they said nothing originally.  If Ash Taylor has a hamstring strain and is out for 2 months just tell us....job done.

It's what pretty much every other football club in England does!

Fair play though in Barton's defence I didn't spot that distinction either and reading back through I'm not sure it's a clear as you have made it until above.

Even in the circumstance of illness though the club can say something and a rough timeline.  I've worked in many different environments where without disclosing the nature of the illness we needed to explain someone is absent and give a timeline even if undefined of absence.  Again in fairness to Barton I don't get the impression the nature of the illness is relevant more the lack of communication and the vacuum that leaves.

Pedji explanation is simple enough; he was not referring to injuries but only to illness. As in Barton's case it is when the Club fails to give clarification on a Players absence do 'misunderstandings' occur; so if player Taylor is injured then it is the Clubs responsibility to say so ....and quickly. If a player is ill then the Club needs to handle the situation differently and crucially in consultation with the Player.

As in Barton's case it is when the Club fails to give clarification on a Players absence do 'misunderstandings' occur; so if player Taylor is injured then it is the Clubs responsibility to say so ....and quickly. If a player is ill then the Club needs to handle the situation differently and crucially in consultation with the Player. 

"Not fit" covers every thing doesn't it ?

Looks like McCormack could be out for a while (hamstring) but Vadaine Oliver (didn't know he was injured) and Camron McWilliams are both back in field based training according to KC.

I did not present it as fact. The last bit might be a clue "This has NOT been confirmed by the club". By the way we still haven't heard from the club but I hope like all supporters that his injury is not serious and Shaun's also.

Shaun's injury would be a major blow.

Its a major blow for him, but i'm not sure he's ever been one of Keiths "favourites".....only started 13 of the 23 games this season.

Concerning is that he replaced sick note McCormack and then went off injured himself, so potentially we could be two midfielders short on Sunday at least. Chance for Pollock to impress, although again, Pollock doesn't seem to be in favour....probably plays too much "football"!

Transfer window opens in a couple of days........!

Perhaps they've given up as KC likes to keep his cards close to his chest when it comes to injuries. Doesn't like to give away return dates or say that someone is definitely missing from the next game as he likes to keep the opposition guessing.

Its frustrating when it comes to the likes of McCormack especially, who is obviously nowhere near match fit and probably never will be again, but KC plants that little seed prior to each game to say that he is in contention or is close to a return.

How many times is Curle going to say about "modifying" McCormacks return to the team/squad?

He's started 9 of our 32 league games this season, with no appearance since the Boxing Day massacre at Crawley.

As good as people think he is its worth pointing out that he hasn't scored a goal since August 2017!

IMO he is not the messiah, he's an expensive luxury who hasn't provided us with value for money this season.

I like the way Curle also says about having lots of options to change the personnel without changing the dynamics.....ain't that the truth, doesn't matter which 11 are selected, we always play the same way!!  ;)

Yes, annoying to the core. Also rather telling the way he seems to be trying to convince himself if not everyone else, that after a good result or turnout of fans it is down to them (us) buying into his philosophy. Is that really why we took over 1000 to Salford, 1,500 to Burton and 4,500 to Derby?

That would be a crying shame. We should be looking after our own home grown talen, playing them as much as possible to shine for us to lead us to better things and if they then get sold on at least it would be for decent money. Don't let them slip through our fingers. The likes of McWilliams, Pollock, Jay Williams (remember him) should be the cornerstone of our team for years.

 I hope he does get offered one. He has had a few injuries which are unfortunate. Sometimes I think that that he has the curse of being able to play in different positions which is good but then lacks definition on where is best for him and us. When he burst into the team at the level above he did well and shone. I just donít think heís pushed on as it looked like he would. Changes of management plus the injuries havenít helped but he has the ability no doubt.

I donít think Shaun will get a new contract, I also donít think heís good enough for L1 and is an average L2 midfielder, I actually think heís better at fullback.
As for Pollock, I think this lad has got a very bright future and can see him playing Championship football in the next couple of years, I would play him in front of Watson in the pecking order.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: west stand oap on March 04, 2020, 13:05:06 pm
I would not worry over Williams being fit as I would be surprised to see him in the starting 11 in any of our remaining 10 games (that is not to say that I do not like him). My thinking is that on current form  Morton will be starting and if Oliver misses out Smith will replace him as I do not see us abandoning totally the long ball. Smith is more likely to win the aerial duel than Williams although I think Williams is better on the ground.
At the end of the season as Oliver has been a regular first choice he is also more likely to be offered a new contract than Williams who KC has not  given an extended run when he has had all strikers fit. Smith is under contract for 2 more seasons and I cannot see KC wanting to keep all 3. Therefor I believe Williams will be restricted to sustitute appearances unless we have further injuries.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Coolcat on March 10, 2020, 11:56:47 am
So Callum Morton suffering from Hamstring strain, following Saturday's Six Nations clash with Mansfield.
KC says he's quick at recovering. Just hope he's fit by this coming Saturday and in the lineup at FGR...or is asking for those two things a little too optimistic, medically and given KC's frustrating habit of dropping our best performers?

Real shame about Sheehan. A bit like McCormack last year but even more injury prone it seems. Hindsight is a wonderful thing though. I'm sure KC wouldn't have taken him on if he'd known he'd miss most of the season. On the other hand, players of Sheehan's pedigree only come to clubs like the Cobblers when they're getting on and/or injury prone. If he'd stayed fit we'd all be saying it was a masterstroke by KC to sign him. It's the risk you take and this time it doesn't seem to be working. Mind you, if he gets to play 10 games between now and the end of the season he could still be the difference between us going down or staying up.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Winslow Lee on February 09, 2021, 08:36:18 am
While I understand peopleís frustrations but even with hindsight I think Iíd have kept him on as the club has done on a player coach role. I feel the impact he can have in the dressing room as well as his know how to organise the defence in a coaching role could be vital in bringing up the performances of the other defences. Then on the seemingly rare occasions he does play he raises the level of the team. With the spaces still in the squad I think KC still had the opportunity to bring in another CB if he felt the right player was there who he thought would have improved the team, there seems little point though in signing a player on a similar level to what we have already.

I agree since Sheehan came in we have reduced the number of goals we concede both with him on and off the pitch, this also has a lot to do with better defenders such as Jones and Kioso.
The problem for us now is at the other end, itís scoring goals, we are the leagueís lowest scoring team and Iím really not sure Edmundson is the answer.
Maybe a player coach in that area would help, like in rugby with forwards and backs coaches.

Sheehan is turning into a false hope, frankly another **** poor signing, doesn't matter how good he could be, he's never fit long enough to make a long term impact. Should have let him go in January,  waste of a squad place.
Perhaps we should have said the same to McWilliams then? He was out for a long time. Injuries do happen! Unfortunately, we seem to be particularly 'unlucky?' with new players getting injured.

I agree since Sheehan came in we have reduced the number of goals we concede both with him on and off the pitch, this also has a lot to do with better defenders such as Jones and Kioso.
The problem for us now is at the other end, itís scoring goals, we are the leagueís lowest scoring team and Iím really not sure Edmundson is the answer.
Maybe a player coach in that area would help, like in rugby with forwards and backs coaches.
I think Hoskins has already received coaching from the Saints try conversion coach.  :( :( :(

As mercenary as it sounds, these are my thoughts entirely!

On 28th January I posted that KC said Miller was about 3 weeks away from being fit (takes us to 18th February) and Sowerby and Sheehan 1 week ( 4th February)
Obviously Sowerby is fit again but now Brady says Sheehan is still about 10 days away (25th February). So in the 18 days between the 2 updates Sheehan has gone backwards by 21 days.
Brady also says that Miller will be ready a few days before Sheehan so it appears doubtful that we will see him for the 2 away games this week.

After a youth career at Arsenal, Tottenham and then Norwich before Wolves signed him, and then we actually paid money for him!!

Someone who thinks he's better than he actually is? Hopefully its not beneath him to be playing for little old Northampton Town.

Three goals for the club, all in the Papa Johns Trophy (2 v Southampton U21 and the other v Exeter City), no goals in the other 23 appearances he's made for us!

Interesting observations ref Marshall. Pretty much every man and his dog from our end of things, would have brought him on with at least 30 minutes to go.

What I don't get though, is that if he's fit enough for 15 minutes with a dodgy hamstring, surely he's fit enough for 30 minutes? If the hamstrings gonna go, it will go in the first few minutes of coming on? I profess to knowing nothing about sports injuries, I would though love to understand the rationing behind this?!

He pulled his Achilles in training, stretching for a ball he had no right to reach, the week before the season started. Rico joked at the fans forum that Brady still thinks he is 25.

"Nicke has played almost every minute so far this season so it was just a chance to bring him out and give him a bit of break, which is something we're able to do with the squad we've got."

Clearly not something we are able to do as we lost and needed a striker who has a better strike rate of 0-30.

My first thought was "Is he being sarcastic?" but I chose to take the question at face value.

BAS I used to think had something of an attitude problem but this season he just doesn't look good enough. A loan to Bedford, Corby or perhaps Rushden (a team at that level) might help him and us one way or the other.

Just as he was starting to find some decent form as well!

Iím not sure heís ever lasted more than a handful of games in a row for us without getting injured, so luckily we have a good replacement in Koiki.

Crikey Mysterious you've quickly changed your opinion of Mills " pity as he was just starting to find some decent form". After the Rochdale game you said you had watched him 30 times and he along with McGowan should be nowhere near the first team (has he actually played 30 games for us with the 2 injuries he had last seaso ?). Since the Rochdale game he had only played in the AFC Wimbledon game before saturday so presumably he found this "decent form" in that one game and that was enough for you to change your opinion of him that you had formed in these previous 30 games, surely it was just a blip and he would he would soon have reverted to type.

I think you are being over critical of Mills, also McGowan. Mills has had a decent career and clearly our management do not hold similar views to your own otherwise they would not have made him captain because you expect your captain to be in your starting 11 so they had no concerns about his ability. He was also made captain at FGR.

On Saturday Mills made a brave interception with a tackle which forestalled a dangerous Crawley breakaway. That interception led to a serious injury for Mills. Now you claim sarcasm as an excuse to now confound us all with quote "To confirm, Mills has never and will never find decent form.  ...sic but if he could stretch it out for a long as possible that would be great" - end quote. To me that seems a pretty mealy mouthed way to treat an NTFC player who was injured in action for the team. Pretty nasty comments you make in support of your anti -NTFC player agenda.

From what I have seen of Mills so far this season (Vale/Col U/Crawley) I have not generally been impressed .. busy, but gives the ball away far too cheaply.

However, that tackle at Crawley was brave and, from what I could see from the away end, quite possibly a goal saver. I wish him well on his road to recovery and applaud his commitment to the cause.

Talking of injuries the Ross Kemp/Micah Richards podcast is worth a listen. His insurance didn't pay up following his retirement through injury, down to being 'wear and tear'. I think he is doing OK though so doesn't need a whip round. I can imagine he paid a lot into that pot.

Contradict in that you are saying he wasn't injured when he joined us as the article says he's "coming back from an injury"?

Looking back a few months....he was on loan at Weymouth at the back end of last season but his spell there was cut short by injury....he picked up "a nasty broken jaw"

Consider that he would have been out with that....but now is working his way back from "a thigh problem"..... if he is unfit now I assume he did not have a pre-season training regime? I can not find any reference to him playing in any of Villas pre season games, nor in any of their U18 or U23 fixtures played before August 31st.

Sad news if true but agreed sounds about right if it wasn't too serious.  Would be silly to rush him in too soon and lose him for longer.

Also agree with the calls about contract extensions for Horsfall, Roberts and Koiki.  Some big players we need to get under contract and soon.  Hopefully we have a few extension clauses written in.

Just a suggestion but perhaps we should give Max Dyche a run there. He may be better able to win the aerial duels than our present attack.

In the past we have had several Centre Forwards/ Centre Halves who were able to successfully transition between the two positions.

Yeah, a bit. If we win every game whilst he is absent then we won't have missed him that much. It took him an age to start getting the goals.

I think the point is that people will be crowing about injuries and lack of strength in depth if we are 10 points clear at the top.
One thing that is definitely a Cobblers trait of old is for injury recovery to take far, far longer than you'd expect it to. Maybe they'll recover a bit quicker now we are flying!
All teams have injuries, we need to crack on, which we are doing very nicely with the easier games to come  :P  :)

You'd think that Danny Rose would benefit from Max challenging and winning his fair share of aerial duels against lumbering Centre Halves. They could form an old fashioned smash and grab sort of relationship. The other two (Benny and Kabamba) don't look like either.

Will be interesting to see if Brady uses Pollock on Saturday (assuming Sowerby is also out), rather than just getting him to run up and down the touchline all game with no intention of bringing him on.

The fact that we didn't enforce the central midfield position in January and Brady said that he wants to put round pegs in round holes, suggests that he is happy with the backup options though. We were always going to be left short at some point with McWilliams' and Sowerby's injury/disciplinary records.

Its looked all season like Pollock had no future here, despite him getting a new contract in the summer, so this will be make or break.

Scott Pollock was on the bench yesterday and I think he was for the game before, so hardly setting the world alight. Although he has scored twice.

Max Dyche has been playing regularly for Brackley but mainly at left back. Could be useful with Koiki injured.

Ryan Nolan featured in Kidderminster's first game but hasn't in the next two - injured already?

That bit of news is not totally surprising, based on that info it appears to me that SP may be destined for the bench unless we have more injuries.

Agreed. If he comes back it will be for cover only. Bez Lubala or Mitch Pinnock are better number 10's although yesterday Lubala didn't show it. He must have lost it three times in the short time he was on the pitch with them breaking forward at the other end.

I think Eppiah could be a real threat if we could get him back functioning to his potential - speed, skill, potentially a natural striker. He's impressed me more than our other current loanees. We would need to get him the ball to run on to and threaten the goal.

Sowerby, Sherring and McGowern were training separately, doing light running and a bit of ball work. However everyone else was present throughout the entire open training session. Eppiah looked decent, and as fit as the rest of the team (for the hour sessions at least).

Hoskins didnít train as Jon Guthrie was saying that Hoskins legs were a bit sore, so was sitting the session out.

Get McGowan  , Odimayo , Sherring and Sowerby back and we are looking very strong .
When Eppiah is fit ( October ) we are looking challengers .
Get Hylton and Pinnock firing and there are exciting times ahead .

Even if we only have Pinnock and Hylton firing in the short term, we'll be well on the way.

It doesnít sound very promising regarding McWilliams - if he is out for any length of time we are one injury to Sowerby or Leonard from a crisis. Also, I hope that when Brighton appoint a new Manager he wonít recall Leonard to have a closer look or loan him out again to a higher club - we need him with us for the whole season.

I understand that he does not want to give too much away to the opposition in terms of possible selection but, surely, as supporters - who are, ultimately, paying his wages - deserve to receive information on our injured players. Why not tell us if: in rehab/ physio; started running; light training on grass; full contact training, etc? We deserve updates on McGowan, Odimayo, Hilton, McWilliams and Magloire.

I am not seeking detailed information on the playerís injury but looking at his stage of progress. In my post, I made reference to understanding that we did not want to give too much information to the opposition but, surely, if more players are available then it makes it more difficult for them to second guess who will be playing whereas atm the team almost picks itself.

Because it makes no difference if the injury occurs in a game or not. It could be do with conditioning / surfaces / warm up / back or core strength / sitting or lying position .
Or it could be down to luck .
Itís nothing to do with the game you are playing in and thatís my point .

Having watched Magloire go off walking apparently fairly comfortably and also having done a few hammies in my time, I wouldn't think he'll be out for (several) months like Brady seemed to imply, more like a few/several weeks.
That is if he doesn't have an underlying problem which makes him more susceptible to the injury and more prone to a longer recovery.
In which case we probably should not have signed him.

Got to say at the time when he went off, I said to my lad he's likely to be out for 4 or 5 weeks. Which is normally the case. Lets hope it heels quicker than Brady is currently implying it will. Preferably at the same rate as Foxe's injury did!

Absolutely.
Unless my eyes were playing tricks on me I can see it being more than a 'strain'.
My fear is he turns into another Fraser Hornby and has something much more fundamentally wrong going on. Misaligned pelvis putting additional strain on an already tight hamstrings for example.

No doubt, we're gonna be stuck with him for the season, while both Leonard & Bowie will no doubt be recalled and loaned out elsewhere  ::)

I was thrilled to get Eppiah back but it looks like our gŗmble has backfired somewhat, doesn't it?

He was great when he was fit last year and you can see the potential but this year his injury and illness record has been on another level. When he has got on the pitch he hasn't looked much good, presumably because he's massively rusty.

I guess the positive is we didn't sign him on a permanent deal!

strange McWilliams didnít play in the week v Arsenal to get his fitness levels up .
It was obviously considered a risk with Fox out .
Hopefully he starts on Saturday v Stevenage .
Would be great to see McGowan start as well  .
I notice Evans saying he couldnít afford some of our players - his budget is actually bigger than ours !!

Shame. Maybe a start for Max Dyche, then. It would be good for him to get 90 minutes in a league game. Hope Koiki's OK, as he limped off too, and was still limping after the game. We're still looking a bit stretched with the combination of injuries and now suspensions.

Part and parcel of the game. All clubs have injuries at this stage in the season, nothing new there.

Post by: west stand oap on November 08, 2022, 20:14:32 pm
We mostly play 4231 so we have 3 strikers for 1 position plus Eppiah when fit. Just bad luck only 1 was available at Chesterfield due to suspensions and injuries. If anything we are undercovered in other positions, Hoskins and Pinnock take the wide positions behind the striker and we have limited other options. Leonard or Fox take the other position to play behind the striker so with 2 holding midfield players we have 4 players for 3 positions other than youths.

Its hardly an option to have 3 or more strikers, the expense of doing so is unjustifiable at our level. Do you mean we should have also invested in goal scoring midfielders? Or clarify what you mean or better still as a Manager what would you have done?

Didnít do us a lot of good having the full quota to pick from. Even when Hoskins is out we do OK.
The way the previous weeks have gone we could do with playing our games away. It has to point towards the type of team we are and not as effective when the onus is on us to be on the front foot.
For Hyltonís glimpses in some games he really needs to add to our goal tally at some point. He has been shocking VFM.
Positives being a clean sheet and we didnít lose, extending the gap.

Letís hope England turn up later.

7 currently injured -

4-5 weeks for Odimayo and 3-4 for Bowie. Probably longer for Fox but waiting for confirmation.

No timescale for Hylton and his knee problem.

Haynes back in training (on the grass  ???) but Harrop now has a muscle injury.

Burge could be in the squad on Saturday.

Also, a couple more have minor problems that will be "worked on" before Saturday.

I think that's covered it all  ::) By the way, why do we get so many muscle injuries?

True.  Depends on how many and in what position those injuries occur though.  League two isn't like the Prem where clubs can carry essentially two first teams.

Mind you certainly doesn't help if the solution the manager comes up with is to completely change the shape of the team and play wingers at fullback.

Clearly with a tight budget there's a degree of g@mbling going on, proportioning budget towards very good but brittle players! Which is absolutely understandable.

So in answer to your rhetorical question, Id say none of the options given!

If I hear Sammy the GOAT is injured Iíll start worrying. A good chance for our exciting untried talent to shine. With all due respect itís Harrogate and not Man City weíre playing. Their keeper is injured so hopefully test the no.2. Iím sure theyíll make some changes after their drubbing on Saturday.

Recall some youth if need be or better still give me a call.
49 years young, eye for goal and once met Diego Simeone in the Vatican.
Knees are not what they were so Iíll fit right in. I did sell my Predators but still have a pair of Patrickís knocking about.

Sheff United did OK last night with a shed load of injuries.

Some of these fringe players need more time before they are written off. How many minutes did he persist with Hylton until he discovered he wasnít worth a place? Mainly driven no doubt by the wage we were forking out. You canít give them 10,20,30 minutes and expect them to play like Messi.
If the current form continues he hasnít got a lot to lose.

You missed the point. Hylton got a lot more opportunities than the new batch look like getting.
As aboveÖsome due diligence should have been performed before whipping the cheque book out if he is that crocked.

He isnít going to get criticism for throwing them in, just criticism for signing them if they are Sunday league players which seems to be the suggestion. I doubt Stoke think DWP is, unless itís a case of players not hacking the league two life, which is always possible. Thereíll be plenty of higher league players who would struggle at the basement, weíve had a few of them.

The injury situation is getting silly!

EVERY game this season we have had at least 3 or 4 first teamers injured!

It highlights how well the squad is doing to be in 4th presently.

I can only think of the Atkins season being worse, when we had over 10 operations on players!

How many of the injuries are muscular?

It must be something were doing no?

I recall going through a similar period 5 of so years ago.

We changed the strength and conditioning team (a guy called Pablo rings a bell) and it worked wonders the following season.

With Koiki out for the rest of the season it may increase our chances of getting him to sign a new contract. With all of the others that have extended their contracts I imagine that Koiki would also have received an offer and so far declined to sign.

Glass almost half full time...
Aside from those that are going to play no more time this season, we will have a full strength team back for the final 5-6 games minimum. They will all be fresh and raring to go and wanting to prove themselves fit and to get their place back in the squad. They will also be up against weary players who have played lots of games and will dominate. We will time a winning run to finish the end of the season strong to claim our place in the top 3.

Agree with Eppiah, he's got so much talent, just so injury prone.

I can't see him having many clubs after him above this level with his record and wages ether.

Hylton I think his best days are behind him and never envisaged his season being so uneventful

JB states that only Aaron McGowan will be available next weekend after his suspension. He also mentioned that only Shaun McWilliams and Akin Odimayo are close to fitness between now and the end of season.

So, does this mean the 4 or 5(?) players who's seasons are over are extra to the other three already declared? Fox, Magloire, Kioki.

That means (possibly) also out are : Hylton, Harrop, Eppiah and Dyche.

What a season for injuries >:(

JB said after the match that we could now have 5 players out for the season with the injury to Dyche. He turned his ankle during the Mansfield match and he is now in a boot. We already know that Fox, Magloire and Koiki are finished for the season and if there is a fifth my money would be on Hylton. It's odd that no one from the club ever talk about him and neither Radio Northampton or The Chronic ask JB how he's doing. I can't help but think he may be coming to the end of his career. I hope I'm wrong for his sake and ours.

One thing's for sure we can't keep expecting the players who are fit to play at a high level every game until the end of the season, which could be between 9 - 12 games, they were knackered Saturday in the second half.

The reason I queried this was because when JB was asked he only mentioned three players for a return, McGowan after suspension and McWilliams and Odimayo at some point between now and the end of the season. No other player was mentioned, he said for 4 or 5 their season is over. I took this as extra to the three already mentioned. So, a possible 7 (seven) out for the season with nine games still to play. I hope I've got the wrong end of the stick here.

Harrop is up their with Nutall for me? Unless management have seen something that means they want him for next season?

Unfortunately, we're stuck with Hylton for another season, can't believe we didn't sign him for 1 year with an option in the clubs favour to extend if he deserves it. It's not hindsight as many said signing an injury ravaged player on a 2 year deal was a risk at the time

Same goes foe Eppiah, always a massive risk that hasn't paid off. He's made of glass and can't even train properly.

As for Harrop, his initial contract expired in January yet despite having absolutely no impact whatsoever, it seems to have been extended without any official announcement from the club...

Hopefully the club have learnt lessons moving forward...

You could argue that the creative players at this level have done extremely well. Just because they haven't reached the dizzy height of the higher divisions doesn't mean they have any flaws, it's just that their ability doesn't quite match those in clubs above them. There's plenty below.
Very few players with attitude problems that you've mentioned twice even get to professional level, they are weeded out long before.

I thought exactly the same to be honest! So are we saying that McGowan is properly crocked too? Norman seems an odd one - he appears to be left footed and left sided the same as Guthrie?

Injuries/no injuries weíre doing fine. It would be impossible to know what our best 11 is. Weíve got a huge squad and itís impossible to improve the results of a winning team. Weíve seen what a fat lot of good it does us when people go on about our occasional strong bench.
I think the current team are galvanised.

If our current 11 (or a lot of them) were replaced by our injured players there is no guarantee weíd be in such a strong position.

I heard a few people on Saturday saying he had feminine features in the publicity picture,  and had to look twice at the picture, I am the same. Not one said anything other than that, nor did I get the impression they meant any different. If you look at some of the other pictures he doesnt so it was maybe just a bad photo! I would rather have a bad pic make me look feminine than the fattening middle aged man that they normally do  ;D

i didn't suggest that at all. There was no need to say you thought it was a signing for the women's team. that was all.
the fact you got annoyed at me calling you out, and that you thought I was calling you homophobic, suggests that maybe in someway you knew what you were saying was not ok.

This is all a bit unnecessary, isn't it? In the photo they used announcing his signing he looked quite feminine. As others have said, in other photos he doesn't. I don't think commenting about that makes them a bigot.

Seriously mate, I've no idea what you are on about. No one has said anything remotely homophobic, transphobic, bigoted or in any way insulting. They've just said that he looked quite feminine in the photo. There's nothing wrong in that (either in saying it or in looking feminine!)

I think everyone is actually just saying that it's an odd photo of the guy. He's in good company because there are plenty of unflattering  photos of me out there,  believe me!

Do we really need an "I'm Spartacus" moment for everyone who did a double take and thought "have they used the right photo there?" when they saw the announcement?

Iíve been trying to find more out about Norman but thereís not a lot out there. It looks like he was captain a few times for his team in Canada but Iíve no idea what the standard is like. My biggest concern is that he is a left sided centre back and so is Guthrie so one of them is going to have to play out of position. Iím just praying that McGowan will be fit for Saturday.

As someone who is quite familiar with what David Norman looks like, even I did a double-take at that photo.

Norman's father (also David Norman) was in Canada's 1986 World Cup squad and played every minute of all three matches. There were fairly high hopes for Norman in Vancouver where his father played much of his career. He was never able to make a breakthrough in Vancouver and didn't show a lot on a few loan spells. Miami signed him, which seemed like a vote of confidence for his potential -- and then he couldn't get anywhere near the team. He's 6-foot-2 and was a holding midfielder. He was a smart player and was decent on the ball (and being left-footed never hurts), but I was never sold on his quickness or athleticism in the midfield. In Olympic qualifying, he ended up dropping into the backline after injuries and a suspension gutted Canada in the back and put in a decent shift.

From there Cavalry signed him to be a central defender. I think playing as a central defender suits Norman much better, but he is still relatively new to the position. He has only had two seasons with Cavalry and has probably spend as much time as a defensive midfielder or a left back in the Canadian Premier League as he has as a central defender.

There have been Canadian Premier League players who have been great in the league, transferred and done poorly abroad. And there have been CPL players with much lower expectations who have done quite well. I think Norman has the potential to be a pretty sound central defender, but I have no idea if he will live up to that promise.

I watched a few games from the Canadian Premier League on BT a few months ago and I would say the standard was very poor - although some of that may be down to the low attendances and the rather ordinary stadiums - mind you ours is nothing to write home about. I must have watched Calvary I suppose but I don't remember David Norman. However as he is now a Cobbler he will get my full support so welcome David.

Back 3 of Lintott - Guthrie - Norman

Sammy right wing back, Sowerby in front of the back 3.  Appere lone striker and pack the midfield and try to hit them on the counter.

I am not expecting too much from Norman, I believe I read that Thursday was the deadline of signing out of contract players (happy to be corrected there). Norman was due to have a trial elsewhere and it fell through leaving him in the lurch. Think it was a case of why not have a look at him and an extra body is very much needed.

If he is remotely capable then it will be an added bonus but not expecting a lots, just need him to stay fit also!

Suprised we haven't recalled Liam Cross back from Leamington yet, he's been playing regularly and scored yesterday...

Big ask but perhaps no option but to give some game time for Tomlinson & Wyatt?

Never known an injury crisis like it and it's getting worse game by game...

After the last day farce of last season and these ongoing injuries, JB just be the unluckiest Cobblers manager ever.

Hopefully, supporters realise the gravity of the situation & will give some slack during the remaining games of this season as JB is powerless to change much...

Once the dust settles at the end of the season, the training routines/schedules definitely need to be looked into as something isn't quite right....also signing constantly injured players such as Harrop & Hylton doesn't help!

Hopefully, a siege mentality can see us at least stay in the play offs and if play offs confirmed with no hope of autos, just play the bloody youth team like Scunny did, in the hope we can get back some senior pros for the play offs.

Ragdoll - Tomlinson is also injured. I agree with you about Liam Cross and Miguel Ngwa for that matter, get them back from loan and at least fill the bench. Peter Abimbola is another one who can take a place on the bench having already returned from loan.

Itís unlikely that 6 teams below us can/will overtake us. Having said that, if we drop to say 7th, our run of form going into them would give little chance of success.
As it is weíve lost one game in months, so hopefully they can galvanise and pull some more results out of the bag. Hylton owes us, so about time he stuck a couple away, although heíll no doubt be injured again before the seasons out.

There is no injury crisis.

We are not having to field Youth Teamers.

We cannot even find enough spaces on our expansive bench for our full-time professionals.

We don't even field the quality (loan) players that we have spent so long chasing.

Wake up and smell the Cobblers.

Confirmed that McGowan and Odimayo are out for the season, bringing the total to 7.

In a weird way I think the injury crisis has helped us over the last few weeks by enabling Brady to create a 'siege mentality' and to frame our form as surpassing expectations.

Brady has done a great job in the circumstances.

So, with Magloire, McGowan, Fox, Koiki, Odimayo and Maxted all with their season over there is finally hope that the remaining injured players could play some part in the remaining games, although not 100% fit.

Sherring, McWilliams, Harrop, Eppiah and Dyche could all bolster our squad in the coming weeks and that will certainly be a big bonus.

It's the opening scene of Saving Private Ryan, which is a Hollywood film directed by Stephen Spielberg and starring Tom Hanks and Matt Damon. Infamously, it graphically depicts the huge number of casualties inflicted during the Normandy landings.

..... and,our injury position is so bad that, rather than play a youth-teamer at C-B, we choose to play a midfielder that has been with-drawn twice in the previous 2 games due to hamstring injuries.

I ask, why play someone with a hamstring issue in a position where they have to jump, and thus risk their hamstring issue?

Some may call that "Management Brilliance".  

Others may say the manager is a "twat".

I believe that we are being sold bollox..... there is no injury crisis.  Every word you read is a web of fantasy to make NTFC victims of a fantasy enemy.

It is important for some to have an imaginary enemy.  It wins votes.

I'd rather honesty prevails.

If we have an injury "crisis", let's see some youth teamers get blooded.

For that matter, why the F... are we having other teams' cast-offs on our bench, and giving them game time?

Are our Youth Teamers that s***?

This is all bollox, and it will unravel next season in Div1.

I'll bet with you on that.

Hoskins is the fittest guy in the squad..... which is why all managers pick him, even when he has a broken leg (ooops, sorry, does no-one know about that, yet?)

My bet is Sherring.....suddenly replaced by Guthrie after 20 mins.  And, then Odimayo comes off the bench to replace in turn, McWilliams.  

What you hear from Brady is bollox.  Our "out for the season" injuries are mind-games.  Following the Cobblers is a bit like believing what you hear under the old East German regime.  Or, believing what you read on the side of a bus.  Someone is a fraud.

Bollox, bollox, bollox.  But, if that is what you want to hear, then, that is your choice.  Suddenly, after Saturday.... and we are safe in the promotion places,  the youth teamers will flood the team and bench.  Brady will tell us all about bollox, bollox, bollox.   And next season, you will be watching a team of inadequate bollox loanees who will get us relegated.  Meanwhile, our ex-kids will get England caps & more.

And that is the reality.

Amazing that you suck this s*** up.

It's been confirmed today that Josh Harrop is out for the season - well that signing didn't really come off  ::)

He joins the following who are also confirmed as out - Magloire, McGowan, Guthrie, Fox, Koiki, Odimayo and Maxted.

Sowerby will probably join that list shortly but there may be some hope for Lintott and Eppiah - no confirmation that their seasons are over at this point.   

Only the eight out for the season then  :P

Harrop, what a pointless signing. Was he ever going to start a game? On a level par with the two Austrian wonderkids, the Iraqi dude, and the P@kistani ambassador. Waste of a salary.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Ragdoll Cobbler on April 21, 2023, 09:20:57 am
Thing is with Harrop, we signed him on a short term deal than ended in January....

He obviously never/hardy played as he was always injured, yet we decide to extend his contract til the end of the season!!!

There was never even an official announcement that we even extended his contract...all very strange

Surely, after making no initial impact due to injuries, he should have just been offer to train with us on non contract terms...

Hopefully, JB and the recruitment team will have learnt a lot this season, with regards to no longer signing proven crocks...

The likes of Harrop & Eppiah are not the type of players needed in the heat of a battle!


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: guest3571 on April 21, 2023, 09:44:29 am
Without knowing what contract he was on its difficult to say. If he was on a pay as you play contract we havent lost anything. I would imagine if he was salaried it would have been minimum wage with performance bonus' etc.
With the injuries we have had any registered player is worth a gamble. Just look what has happened with Norman. Thought he was coming in to support from the bench and now our fittest defender.

Without knowing what contract he was on its difficult to say. If he was on a pay as you play contract we havent lost anything. I would imagine if he was salaried it would have been minimum wage with performance bonus' etc.
With the injuries we have had any registered player is worth a gamble. Just look what has happened with Norman. Thought he was coming in to support from the bench and now our fittest defender.

I get that, but Norman was never carrying injuries & was set to sign for Morecambe before they pulled out (thankfully!)

The likes of Harrop & Eppiah we're signed knowing they were made of glass...

As I say, hopefully we'll be targeting a more robust type of player moving forwards, along with tweaking our training methods...

Appreciate injuries can happen at anytime, but looking at a players injury record, should certainly alleviate some issues we've had this season.

It's been confirmed today that Josh Harrop is out for the season - well that signing didn't really come off  ::)

He joins the following who are also confirmed as out - Magloire, McGowan, Guthrie, Fox, Koiki, Odimayo and Maxted.

Sowerby will probably join that list shortly but there may be some hope for Lintott and Eppiah - no confirmation that their seasons are over at this point.   

Only the eight out for the season then  :P   

Lintott is the full season .
Fox and Guthrie some of next season

Guthrie is a bad hamstring but is out for possibly 3 months which impacts on pre season etc - nothing more.

Lots of players playing through injuries which is making them worst - thatís what happened with Guthrie and hopefully doesnít happen with Sammy

With regards to the comments around Harrup, itís worth noting that there is not a football club anywhere who can claim all of their signings have come off. Realistically what should the successful percentage of the recruitment be to allow it to be regarded as acceptable? Obviously what constitutes success would be subjective, but looking at our past and other clubs I would guess 75% would be an outstanding achievement.

An article today on the Chron website with injury updates and expected return dates.

Maybe I missed it but didn't realise Magloire was out till Feb 2024!!!  Likely to miss most of next season.  Real shame for him and blow for the club as he's basically going to have been unavailable for the best part of the first 2 years of his contract.

Ali Koiki (soon?)

Josh Tomlinson must be OK, he played in Maunsell Cup this week.
the three I'm most keen to see back are Burge Fox and Hondermarck. I'm not really ecpecting to see Danny Hylton play again.

According to JB in the Chron, Burge, Fox and Haynes all have a chance of being in the squad this week. Hondermark turned his ankle in training so will be a few weeks. Magloire and Hylton as we know are long term and as far as I can remember Koiki wasn't mentioned.

Agreed - Burge just gives a bit more confidence to the back line. Certainly not howlers but there are 2 or 3 goals that I think he would have kept out and could have added 4 points to our tally which would us sitting in a great place at this stage.

Burge back would be a great boost. Fox and Hondermarck will hopefully both be back soon, but fortunately at least we've got a number of decent options  in central midfield. Koiki still being on the sidelines is a disappointment. Didn't really play enough last year to get into form, but let's just hope we get the first season version of him when he does come back.

I did for a time as it was such a daisy cutter. Chron said it was a good strike Also the general view on the Coach that he did well to get near it. Not sure if Deepcut would agree with the general view though? It was 20yds out and its generally the kind of shot he would keep out. Pity though as the defence deserved a point from the game.

2 players we can't replace if they get injured, maybe 3, Guthrie is definitely one of them. Whilst he's not top of the POTM table.....I think him and Leonard have been immense this season and no doubt we might not gain as many points without him.

Let's hope the club are being extra cautious with his management and ensure he's not rushed back.

This is a big test of our resilience now. Squad depth and brittle fitness of key players always looked like our main weaknesses and this is probably the player we could least afford to lose.

Wouldn't be surprised if we play three centre-backs to compensate, at least we've got options though a shame that Dyche is crocked as well. Guthrie is definitely the player I'd least like to be without, even above Hoskins. He is up there for me with some of the best centre-backs we've ever had in terms of both leadership & consistency.

Post by: Deepcut Cobbler on October 05, 2023, 07:44:39 am
At the start of the season I was looking at the squad and possible replacements/deputies if we suffered injuries like last season and Guthrie was the one that I couldn't match, in terms of ability and what he brings to the team as a whole.
Hopefully his rehabilitation will be a success and, despite his importance, we don't bring him back too early.
A big six weeks which could have a significant impact on our overall season.

Sorry to look on the dark side but how often do our 6 week injuries actually turn out to be only 6 weeks. If this is a recurrence of Guthrie's hamstring injury from last season he missed the last month of the season and wasn't ready after the break for pre- season training.

Hope so, it happened right in front of the West and luckily as soon as he felt it he signalled to the bench, they told him to go down for treatment, hopefully this action might lessen the severity.

Maybe Horsham's views are just time of the Monthe!  ;)

If Guthrie is out for 6 weeks, from what Iíve seen Monthe isnít the answer. Heís the opposite to the ball playing centre backs weíre trying to create, unless weíre looking to revert back to the long ball tactics of old?

A full back as a make shift centre back needed?

I think we will go 3 at the back to compensate Guthrie injury McGowan and sherring with a monthe


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: west stand oap on October 06, 2023, 07:38:57 am
I think the word to describe Monthe is ungainly. He sometimes worries me when he has the ball at his feet and looks likely to be dispossessed but he still emerges with the ball.

We will have another alternative at the back as JB says Koiki is now fit so Brough could move into the centre of defence and is naturally left sided and provides more height than McGowan.

Good point on Brough. Sorry Monthe still like you and your attitude is great!

Not sure he's saying he dislikes him. Just an accurate description of his best and worst attributes. War horse is surely a great compliment. He's a great stopper and large presence at the back at set pieces etc, just looks a bit dodgy on the ball at times.

Didnít directly suggest that said poster suggested did. However the Bambi on ice comment probably or at least inferred that.
One eminent poster on here posted his misgivings on Monthe and so it sticks! I have seen all the games Monthe has played and as far as I can remember he has not met  let us down. Just wish people could provide us with the evidence where his error has led to a goalie or a misplaced assist!

Post by: Monkey on October 06, 2023, 11:11:20 am
Funny because to me, Monthe has looked really good in possession for a CB. I don't really remember him giving it away any more than anyone else.
The area he makes me nervous is when hes one on one as he is an aggressive defender who attacks the ball. Great when he wins it, but he gets taken out of the equation too easily when he doesnt get it right. We've definitely had worse cover in the past... but hopefully Guthrie isnt as bad as reported.

Derby are having a strange season, nobody has scored more away goals than their 14 in 6 games with only 1 defeat. But at home they have only won 1 of their 5 games, only scored 4 goals and are 21st in the home form table.

Our club do not update injuries very well at all. When was the last time we had updates about the progress of Hylton and Magloire other than they are long term injuries. Surely they must be working towards fitness by now, especially Hylton , progress reports would be good, even if to let us know they haven't been forgotten.

That would be bad news about Fox, if true, how the hell did it happen? He is another that we have hardly seen since he signed - we have far too many injury prone players.

A very good point.

It would certainly help those players as well. From the outside looking in it appears Hlyton isnít about, is being paid and is off watching Luton every week. The fans are on his back as a result via social media channels which will no doubt be impacting him mentally.

The reality may well be that heís about the club 5 days a week doing all he can to get back.

Regarding injured players letís not forget that many on here weíre complaining when Admiral Muskwe went to Exeter on loan saying that we should have done everything within our power to convince him to come here.
Had he signed for us he would now be labelled as a sick note because he has yet to play for Exeter, we canít have it all ways.
Most of us were delighted when we signed Hylton but look at how little he has played, I wonder how many £s per minute that works out at.
Similarly after his first loan spell we were clamouring for the club to bring Epping back only for him to be constantly out injured.
We were saying what a good signing Fox was after his performances last season.
So they players that are now being called to be binned off are those we were happy to sign.

Are our number of  injuries both long and short term  any different to other football clubs?
Do we have more than others, are our recovery times and outcomes worse etc?

Itís a physical game with impacts so injuries are inevitable?

There will be seasons with more than others and equally risks taken on players with ability but more prone and sometimes it works out and sometimes not.

Charlie Goode has had a lot of injuries since being sold for Goode money, not that I think heíd feature in Brentfordís team anymore.

My concern with Brady is his treatment room. Too soon for Sowerby - been out for months after taking a 'knock' Burge stubbs his toe last season at Salford - out for how long?
The 'taken a knock' is becoming tiresome. As I said a couple of months ago, the fact that the club were looking to change the approach (if not staff) to treatment indicates culpability to some extent in not getting players fit...and as for Hylton!

The "treatment room" would be managed by suitably qualified professionals, and I am sure they are doing the job they're paid for! We don't know what goes on at the club, just internet gossip on here and elsewhere.

He hasn't got the best temperament, doesn't take criticism very well and is likely to throw his toys out of the pram at any moment, look how he rants and raves on the side-lines which often leads to him getting spoken to by Referees. I think being passionate and fiery can be good qualities, shows you care but sometimes a calm head is needed. Up to now things have gone fairly well for Brady as the Cobblers manager, I do wonder though how he'll handle real pressure should things turn sour, didn't he have a  dust up with a supporter sitting behind him at one point last season?

You and Mysterious seem to act in unison. Since yesterdays defeat you and Mysterious have been all over this forum with incessant negative comments on Manager and Owners.

Sorry to hear about your predicament and hope your Mother does well and improves.
With regards to your comments on injuries am pretty sure that I read in the Chron that the injury situation would be looked at end of last season? If my memory serves me well J Brady commented that there would be revised training methods and above all Players will be carefully managed especially after coming back from injury. We are not the only Club to suffer from injury crisis, Rovers had upto 7 players out prior to our visit there yesterday. Darby too have a fairly lengthy injury list too:
https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/league-one/verletztespieler/wettbewerb/GB3. Also my next door Neighbour is a Shrews fan and told me the reason they lost yesterday was due to the injury list. Same excuse at Port Vale too. We are not alone in this and at least we have some players coming back.
Chip up and look after your mother!

On his post match interview yesterday, he seemed almost embarrassed by the issue, just referring to numbers, and not the cause.
He also got very tetchy, when Tim O pressed him on the reason for Simpsons substitution, preferring instead to discuss other players attributes. He did not like either point being raised.

Tim O seems to have it in for Simpson, which is unusual  as not heard him be that harsh on a player before. Personally I think Brady is in a no win situation with that type of question, as no manager would want to be calling out their own players in the media. Not good for the changing room.

Salary, Dividend or Directors loan, btw company accounts can say whatever you want them too.

So you made up what you said. Another of your FACTS.

The club cannot pay dividends as there a negative profit and loss.

I thought Appere's injury was a 'minor knock', but he has now missed three matches, and it doesn't appear he will be available Tuesday either as JB only mentioned Sowerby as being close. In my opinion a 'minor knock' keeps you out for one game so it's clearly more than that and once again we are told nothing.

The players that are currently injured and possible timeframe/guess :

Tyler Magloire - last we heard Feb 2024
Jack Sowerby - one of the players not far away?
Jon Guthrie - same as above
Ben Fox - rumoured to be out for most of the season
Louis Appere - his knock is still keeping him out
Danny Hylton - early December?
Max Dyche - nothing has been said about his injury suffered whilst on loan at Aldershot.

That's some list, an update from the manager would be lovely.

Based on the assumed return dates I've predicted how many games each will last before another long term injury.

Tyler Magloire - 2 games
Jack Sowerby - 5 games
Jon Guthrie - 15 games
Ben Fox - 3 games
Louis Appere - 20 games
Danny Hylton - 4 games
Max Dyche - Not sure we will see Max again.

Brady said that ''we are hoping some players will be back in a week or so''. That doesn't really tell us anything, hoping is just a wish and in a week or so, could be a week or any length of time.

The nearest appear to be Sowerby and Appere (he has a minor knock remember - if he doesn't make tonight he will have been out for four games) although he thinks tonight might be too soon. Bowie will of course miss tonight and Saturday - assuming of course he hasn't picked up a minor knock in training.

No other players were mentioned on the official site although the Chron does mention others.

To be fair I can think of several players we have signed that have quite an extensive injury record. The likes of Magloire, Fox, Hylton, Koiki all had problems with injuries in the past. Fox in particular dropped down to national league level due to his injury record at Burton.

Yes, it doesn't really tell us much. I wasn't expecting TM back before February anyway but was hoping to see Hylton this month so we can at last get some value out of him. However the phrase 'hopefully we will see him out there again soon' doesn't really tell us anything. I will have a guess at January.

Thanks for asking James.

If Danny Hylton returns in January, plays every game til the end of the season & bags 20 goals in the process, that should just about make up for his lucrative 2 year contract which thankfully expires next summer.

No one wants him or Simpson to fail, thing is we have eyes & can blatantly see Hylton is a spent force & along with Simpson just doesn't suit our style of play.

From the horses mouth (well JB).

Burge , McGowan and Hylton close to a return.

Fox - latter part of January.

koiki - he wouldn't speculate on return date.

Magloire - doing well, and should be back on the grass in the middle of January with light running etc.

Guthrie (although back fit) his game time will be monitored over the Christmas period, therefore he won't play in every game.

Unless Hylton comes back and catapults us to promotion I'm not sure anyone will have 'egg on their face'.
Without doubt the most unsuccessful signing of a generation. Might not be his or anyone's fault but the sooner he frees up some budget the better.

Clearly, every fan will want him to do well if he does grace us with his presence again, he owes us and the club!!

I think we all know your thoughts on this, you must have mentioned it on every thread  ::) and yes we all know thus far his signing has not been very successful to say the least. Let's just give him a chance following his operation, that's all I would say.

Utter Tosh!

He ain't committed to us whatsoever, he was a spent force when we unfortunately gazumped Wimbledon in signing him, on a ridiculous 2 year contract.

You never hear of him around the club helping our strikers & young players with his vast experience...

You only ever hear of him on social media spunking over his beloved LTFC. Never a good luck/well done mention of the club that actually employs him & pays his wages...

Absolutely no chance he's gonna make any impact on our season moving forward...

I just hope someone desperate, such as Sutton, come in at take him on loan in Jan til the end of the season, then finally we'll be rid!

I'm undecided because we didn't see enough of him - but I certainly think when he was playing he spent too much time with s***housery rather than using his talents - that certainly got him marked by refs and subsequently got him plenty of yellows and one somewhat harsh red - can't really blame injuries on that.

Again a couple of times when he was playing you saw him outpaced by a country mile in a straight race - injury or just the legs gone on an older player?

The social media stuff with Luton frankly doesn't look good but I think the reaction by some of our fans is that's simply because he is delivering nothing on the pitch and comes at a high cost - if he was playing and scoring goals  I don't think people would take much notice.

It's pretty certain at his age and the length of lay off his is not going to be a significant contributor this season - personally I'd look to see if there is anyway of paying him off/moving him on in a scenario that costs us less than seeing his contract to a conclusion

So for me (in hindsight of course) a poor signing but doesn't deserve any hate.

Raggers commented on Hylton:

"Hylton is 33, so almost 3 years younger than Andy Williams who's just signed for Walsall, and 7 years younger than Bayo!
He's orrible' to play against & would be a fantastic influence and mentor for Appere...
Give me him over Danny "she fell over" Rose any day of the week!"

I think he has changed his mind, I think a lot of people have!

He has probably changed his mind on Simpson too I'd imagine.

Tyreece Simpson just been recalled by Ipswich from his loan at Swindon, so assume he's being sold/being loaned elsewhere...

Would be the perfect signing for us & would show proper ambition...

GET HIM IN!

I would imagine the management have changed their mind on some of these players too!

I'll settle for another 10 minute cameo against Stevenage like the last one. Even with his sending off after only 10 minutes his presence turned the gameback in outr favour.
Ultimately those points (agreed not only those points) got us promoted. If Danny Hylton is genuinely almost back like Burge and McGowan its perfect timing. Perhaps he can do some s***housery on Steve Evans while he's there.

And you could say his pass to Hoskins in the opening game against Colchester and his 2nd half performance against Stockport, and particularly getting at Horsfall, that turned that game in our favour.

Only our team could have a 12 day break but somehow pick up 3 fresh injuries to Hylton, Sowerby and Odimayo  ::) to go with Magloire, Sherring, Fox and Kioki.

Clearly the new approach to training, as mentioned during the summer, is paying off big time.

I asked about the training and the number of injuries sustained last season when we did the Q & A with the club. The response was that injuries were on the rise in the professional game, but changes were being made to the training regime at the club to try and mitigate them, maybe another look is needed or NTFC have a group of injury prone players?

I think the club ought to be a bit more open with information regarding injured players. Just after Xmas when asked about Sherring JB said because of the Xmas period they had not been able to get him assessed but here we are at the end of January and still not a word.
He has said that McWilliams, Sowerby and Fox may not be back until the end of February which in Fox's case is rather strange as 4 weeks ago he was reported as saying he was only 2 weeks away, perhaps he has picked up another "knock".

I agree everyone has them.  What you are missing is the ability of a club to handle the loss of key players.  When we have to turn to our reserves or aquire a new player we are probably looking at significantly different levels than those with budgets that are double or more of ours.

I donít buy this competitive advantage bollox - I think they owe us supporters the decency of telling us the truth! Weíre not asking for who is going to be available to face Portsmouth on Saturday - we just want to know how many weeks each of the crocked players are likely to be out for!

The interesting thing I think is that I reckon you could class 6 of the 9 in that list as injury prone.  As in reguarly picking up various knocks that keep them out for decent lengths of time.

That's something the club need to consider moving forward in recruitment even if the player in question is decent.

One example is Koiki.  Personally I'd have let him go in the summer.  I like him as a player but never plays enough games.  It's a question mark who is the better player out of Brough and Koiki but which one has benefitted the club more in their time here so far?

Adding to the 1980/81 season when Aston Villa only used 14 players, going back to the 1960's I don't remember us having many injuries and there were no substitutes until 1965 when 1 allowed but only to replace an injured player. Before that date I cannot recall us finishing games with 10 men or very few occasions when an injured player continued playing to the end of the game limping along the wing.

Perhaps in those days players didn't have hamstrings or was it a case of men being men and women being glad of it.

I was thinking the same about 86/87, how many games did players miss through injury that season? The difference between 30 years ago or so and now seems to be huge, there has to be a reason for it.

I was thinking the exact same thing.  Feels like we only used about 15 players that season, though that's probably just my poor memory.

Like you say there must be reasons for it and it's not like we are the only club that have this issue.

I know JB has mentioned the longer matches i.e. additional time being much longer.  Certainly people are more at risk of injury when fatigued.  I've witnessed that problem even at the low level of coaching I do.

Think there is also aspects of how hard athletes in general are pushed compared to years ago.  Think about how much more work defenders particualrly full backs get through in the modern game.  Also playing RW and LW players that are expected to defend and attack.

Theres always at least five players out injured, including the close season. The problems accumulated during training, or signing already injured players, are of Bradys own making. Dont get me wrong, I am a fan of Brady, and what he has achieved. BUT he has to look at his record for signing injury prone players, and the training methods employed. And then be honest about the nature of these injuries. Until such time, these sort of posts will continue. Taxi for Hylton?

JB said on Saturday that none of the injured players would be back before the end of the month - then he clarified that as the end of Feb!!
These are not niggles and short term injuries that most clubs have to manage! Surely having a 1/3rd of your squad out for months at a time is not normal!?
I donít buy this competitive advantage bollox - I think they owe us supporters the decency of telling us the truth! Weíre not asking for who is going to be available to face Portsmouth on Saturday - we just want to know how many weeks each of the crocked players are likely to be out for!
Big fan of JB but this is not the way to do it!

It's a totally different game now. You have to be athletic to make it as a footballer now, you didn't then.
Fitness then was making it through the games, not reaching a level of athletism so as to eek out the small differences between you and your opponents the sports scientists are so obsessed with.
Carthorses don't bust as many fetlocks as thoroughbreds.
Plus of course it's no longer a man's game.

Hmmm. So if I've read that right there aren't more injuries now than before.  Who's going to tell JB?

Perhaps Sports Science has made everyone too aware of what could happen that we don't take risks anymore.  Lets's face it back in the day they were giving players cortisone injections and the like just to get them on the pitch.  Probably worked in the short term but had long lasting effects.

That article makes you think, especially with injuries supposedly on the decline.Yet some of our major Clubs in the Premier League seem to be experiencing plenty of injuries. These are clubs with first class training facilities and remedial treatment. Oxford a week or two ago also had many players out with injury issues.

Something is wrong in football, look at Rugby, those guys smash into each other deliberately, I don't think many of us could stand to be tackled by Courtney Lawes. Yes, they have injuries, as you'd expect but it never seems to affect teams like it does in football.

As for the Villa (and Cobblers) teams mentioned, funny how when you're winning players don't seem to shy off like they do when you've nothing to play for or getting beat every week. Some of these players just don't fancy it (like Hylton) and if you're getting paid anyway, why would they? Does Hylton get a bonus when the team wins or is that only the players that enter the field?

It seems to me that the problem is signing players who have or had background of injury issues. McW is easy to diagnose as he has been injury prone for some time. Not sure about Sowerby; but Hylton, Magloire and Fox are worthy of an investigation. The problem is we have to take chances with potential injury prone players due to the lack of sufficient funds which bigger clubs seem to have at their disposal. We take a risk with such players and if it pays off, then hats off all round. Of course another issue since our promotion to League One is the general glamour for players we simply cannot afford; both wages and fee. All this under the disguise of progress, accumulate, speculate and all from people with a wish that this done by those with the dough, but not [oh no] with their funds! It would be a terrible mistake to lampoon Brady for the apparent failure to sign players to ensure a push for the playoffs. For me that is the mantra of egoistic 'fans' of whom we have one or two!
So in summary Saucy we are victims of our success this season and the question is now how we manage it!

Rugby has the same problem with too many injuries, that is why they are looking at fewer substitutes, the thinking being players have bulked up to last just 55 minutes.
If they have to last 80 minutes they need to be lighter to last all the match and not be able to hit so hard.

Well that's just good planning, utilising the squad and adapting to the rules. The difference as I can see it as the players coming on are equal in standard to those being substituted.

The flawed model with rugby is squads need at least 30+ players and the lack of revenue has resulted in 3 so called top clubs failing!

Their Seasons Prior to Signing for us: (the figure in brackets is appearances and/or in the match squad which means that although 'fit', they didn't get on the field of play)
Tyler Magloire - 20/21 (29), 21/22 (27)
Aaron McGowan - 19/20 (29), 20/21 (41)
Jack Sowerby - 18/19 (45), 19/20 (34)
Sam Sherring - 20/21 (45), 21/22 (37)
Ben Fox - 20/21 (23), 21/22 (38)
Danny Hylton - 20/21 (31), 21/22 (31)
Ali Koiki - 20/21 (19)
Shaun McWilliams - One of our own
Akin Odimayo - 20/21 (37), 21/22 (53)

They all played a significant amount of games in the season(s) prior to joining us and most of these have since played a full season for us prior to their latest injuries.
It's very difficult to forecast when players will have their major injury setbacks, or niggly little ones, that have the potential to 'end their careers'. Most footballers have at least one during their careers'.



Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: west stand oap on January 30, 2024, 09:45:08 am
I think it is fair to say that if McGowan is missing for the Portsmouth game we will have half of what would be our first choice 11 missing. Guthrie would be partnered by Sherring and I think 2 of McGowan, Odimayo and Koiki would be the full backs, McWilliams and Sowerby would join Leonard in midfield allowing Pinnock to be on the flanks with Hoskins and Bowie down the middle. With the team we are likely to put out I am not confident of our chances.

If we are not getting players back in February we are in for a tough month (barring any incomings) as we have Portsmouth followed by Bolton and we have lost 6 of our 7 games against teams in the top 6, then Orient who are on a good run of form. After these it is Bristol Rovers and Oxford neither of which are ever easy concluding with the lowest placed team Burton in this months fixtures. Fortunately we already have 40 points in the bag as we may not get too many next month and certainly a mighty task to get 2 points per game for those thinking we still have a chance of the play offs. I don't think this view is being overly downbeat but realistic in our present situation.

Since he left us, Charlie Goode has played/on the bench as follows:
23/24 (7)
22/23 (4)
21/22 (20)
20/21 (27)
The two seasons with us:
19/20 (45)
18/19 (47) first half of the season with Scunny
Did Brentford make a mistake with 'injury prone' Charlie Goode?

Or has he not been playing regular first team football which means his body struggles when jump back into the first team fold (when on loan). ie. they've made him more injury prone by starving game time.

Possibly, it just shows that forecasting and/managing injury is not an exact science.

Your logic seems to be based on 'Cart before the Horse'. To take these opportunities , that is take a punt on a promising player we will need an owner who has sufficient funds to embark on these type of financial adventures. The current Board have supported and co operated with Jon Brady this season pretty well.  The simple answer is that for 90% of our history we have lacked that kind of owner(s,) so where we are lucky is that we have a Manager in JB who understands the prevailing monetary situation with the Club and by astute Management has gained a place in the top ten! This is very similar to the type of situation experienced by Dave Bowen back in the 60's. Furthermore it seems to me that possibly we might be on the cusp of a meteoric rise through the divisions as in the past. JB has proved to be an exceptional Manager, so if we give him the chance and with some patience we might well be in the Championship by season 26/27.

Tyler Magloire - 20/21 (29), 21/22 (27)
Aaron McGowan - 19/20 (29), 20/21 (41)
Jack Sowerby - 18/19 (45), 19/20 (34)
Sam Sherring - 20/21 (45), 21/22 (37)
Ben Fox - 20/21 (23), 21/22 (38)
Danny Hylton - 20/21 (31), 21/22 (31)
Ali Koiki - 20/21 (19)
Shaun McWilliams - One of our own
Akin Odimayo - 20/21 (37), 21/22 (53)

They all played a significant amount of games in the season(s) prior to joining us and most of these have since played a full season for us prior to their latest injuries.
It's very difficult to forecast when players will have their major injury setbacks, or niggly little ones, that have the potential to 'end their careers'. Most footballers have at least one during their careers'.

How does Burge keep injuring himself, literally stands still for 90 minutes with the expedition of kicking.

Do we need to tailor our game to avoid him pulling a hamstring every time he goes long?

Never known a keeper with so many injuries...

Thankfully, he's one of several we can release at the end of the season!

Shame we didn't sign Tom King on a perm when we had the chance, instead of just taking him on a contract til the end of last season...still, it's certainly worked out well for him now...

He clearly isn't as pivotal as his goals might suggest. I'm not sure why his type of player/character should make us unbalanced though. If he was a Bayo, or a little striker who needed a target man maybe. It's more the case that he has had to adapt to the needs of the team, especially during last season. Now Bowie has decided to start scoring we are definitely not as reliant on him. Banging in 3 on Tuesday was certainly encouraging.
The issues seem to be currently at the back.

I dont know if its Brady not wanting to give the opposition any insight at all or if hes trying not to put pressure on those injured players to return.

Either way I dont see how giving people an update on the long term absentees like Koiki, Magloire etc harms anyone. These are players that have not played in huge periods of time, its not like they are going to start, or play for more than a few minutes. Does it really impact anyone to know on their progress? I do find that a little frustrating as im really interested in how they are getting on.

Either of those would make a massive difference.

If you could have any of the injured players back and at their best, who would it be?

I'm tempted to say Hilton but as we appear to have no problems scoring I think I'd go for one of the full backs, either Koiki or Odimayo.

My theory is it is Pinnock, not Hoskins, that has to be accommodated and can therefore make the team unbalanced. Again it is just an opinion and not a FACT.

On Tuesday Lintott, I would imagine, would have loved us to be so unbalanced that he had Hoskins working hard and pressing in front of him, rather, as far as I could see, no-one at all.

But we conceded 4. I think the point Robas was trying to make was nothing to do with our attacking ability but that with more pressing in front of our full backs we may not have conceded so many. JB often says we defend from the front.

I agree that Sowerby is the big miss.  Just makes things tick in the middle.  Alongside this it's no coincidence we looked better when Leonard played further forward.  Getting his quality up into the danger areas was massive for us and the sooner we can do it again the better.

As for Hoskins....only at the Cobblers would you finally unearth a 20 goal a season striker of his quality and some would argue we are better without him.

No, I'm saying if you lose 3-4, it's not your attack you should be concerned about.

When you watched Carr side, and Wilders to an extent, you weren't concerned how many you let it because you always believe you could score more.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: everbrite on February 16, 2024, 18:24:35 pm
For me and it appears generally true that a decent/strong defense is the making of a good side. It also gives more opportunity to the forwards as well as the midfield players. All our successful sides had exemplary central  defenders like Branston, Wilcox and now Guthrie (in season 22/23). Our astute forum expert this season the redoubtable QAP has suggested that this season seems to be generally that we may have defensive issues. Guthrie's example last Tuesday held the defense such as it was, kept us in the game. For me the loss last Tuesday   was as much due to key player absences but significantly aided by defensive errors. As much as it goes against the grain we have not as yet replaced Horsfall. Sherring is a decent replacement but appears to have gone awol recently and is certainly missed. Should be interesting game tomorrow both sides chronically effected by Injuries with two rookie keepers - he who turns up will win it.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: west stand oap on February 16, 2024, 18:38:40 pm
Successful teams are like houses built on solid foundations, the general consensus was always build a solid defence and you won't go far wrong. Generally the promoted teams are those that concede the fewest goals but after our recent run of results only Charlton, Fleetwood and Carlisle have conceded more goals than us. As Bristol Rovers have only conceded 2 fewer than us it could be another high scoring game tomorrow.

If we have Sowerby fit and playing, then it negates the need for three at the back, and two wing backs who are not comfortable in their roles, regardless of who they are. This team performs far better with Sowerby at the base, thus releasing Leonard in an advanced position. Its about time that we used him as a number 10, for the last couple of months of the season. We may never see him again, so go for it.
A crass observation I feel, but Bellingham was never signed by Madrid for his goal scoring ability, but has broken a few records since. I do not think that we need another goal scorer, but with the correct Sowerby/Mcwilliams combination, then we already have one in Leonard.

Interesting. We don't win the league very often, only 5 times and two of those came before the first world war.

In the three since we haven't had the best defensive record in any of them but we did score goals for fun. Bowen, Carr and Wilder and although I didn't witness the Bowen title side they must have been fun to watch, scored more goals per game than Wilders side which is going some.

Anyway I thought I'd mention, we may not win leagues very often but when we do, we win them by some distance. If you equate all five titles to 3pts for a win we have won by 8pts (1962/3), 9pts (1908/9 & 1986/7), 11pts (1898/9) and 13pts (2015/6). Little wonder when they come round we enjoy them so much, no nerves jangling on the final day for us.  ;D

Well I watched a lot of Carrs and Wilders games and I don't think the Managers of both sides set up their sides based on your logic. In any case there is still a good argument to suggest that even last Tuesday we failed to score more than we did!  At the game today we looked immeasurable better in defense with Sherring present, so perhaps our recent losses and draws were down to mass absence of key players.

The League games Hoskins has missed, 13 now since Brady took over have seen us win 8, drawn 3 and lost 2, scoring 1 goal more every two games. That's promotion form. We haven't had a massive injury list every time he has been missing. However if you believe Sherring's absence is the reason for the Hoskins figures, instead of just throwing it out there, do what I do and do some research to back up your guesswork.

Carr's side was "we'll score more than you", not Wilders, they were just a very good balanced entertaining side who made you believe they'd find a way to win whatever the circumstances. Carr's side scored 103 goals, Wilders 82. See there's me backing up my point with evidence. You should try it some time.

Yes I agree Marvo, itís like Tel said itís because Hoskins has become greedy, as all good strikers are, he gets his head down and shoots on sight. Hoskins for me isnít a natural footballer and doesnít see the picture on the pitch and thatís why we play better football without the little scamp.

I think hes always been greedy , its just that his shooting ability has improved no end (a lot of thanks go to rico) his confidence is up so he shoots on sight , we seem to move the ball around and quicker without him too, now every passage of play doesnt have to go via him.

I think hes always been greedy , its just that his shooting ability has improved no end (a lot of thanks go to rico) his confidence is up so he shoots on sight , we seem to move the ball around and quicker without him too, now every passage of play doesnt have to go via him.
He used to infuriate me with his aimless shoot on sight and his mostly useless delivery from wide, both invariably getting blocked by the nearest defender.
I think much of his improved positional play in front of goal can be attributed to Rico but his attempts at goal just seem to have got a lot better and I'm not sure that can be attributed to anyone other than the man himself.
Sure he plays more on confidence than most and so the changes to his personal life will have benefitted his game.

Completely agree.  His finishing is light years above what it was.  You only have to look back on some of his goals this season and he has at times made hard finishes look easy.

I'm certainly glad he was in the side against Tranmere last season.

It's obviously a good thing the side isn't a one man team and that we can play well without him.  I just struggle to understand why anyone would be trying to find a way to get a 20 goal a season striker out of the side.  I think the fact JB picks him every time he's available probably says it all.

If he comes back, has a good pre season & can stay fit, he will be a great asset imo

As has recently been said and apologies to other for regurgitating it.

We play differently currently and itís much more fluid in attack. Itís weird that they canít get this tune with Sam in the team, but we donít. Mitch is one of the players thriving the most from it. IMO Sam needs to earn his place back in the side. I personally wouldnít put him back any time soon based on recent performances.

You're all right, certain players are thriving in Sammys absence. That doesn't mean we're a better side without Sammy or a worse side with him. All it means is players like Pinnock, who has incidentally regularly been slated, are finally getting their finger out and picking up the slack.

My feeling on Bowies improvement is he's a young lad at the start of his career so can only get better. I'm not convinced it's down to Sammys absence.

I am astounded by the opinions surfacing on Hoskins that we play better without him some even quoting that how fluid we are now playing without him. Arguments or at best a difference in opinion on our prize asset! People seem to forget that Bowie and Leonard are loan players so when they are gone....they have gone. We have no
sugar Daddy to pay the Transfer fees to enable us to buy these capable players. Memories are short when Bowie was developing as a player last season and Hoskins was scoring for fun! This season he is our top scorer with 14 goals and none of our forwards is as yet near achieving 14 goals.
Seems to me that some are on a self damaging voyage based on a false premise.

I've delved a bit deeper into Hoskins stats as many of you have said the 9 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats in the 13 games he's missed since Brady took over wasn't a big enough sample.

Since he signed for the club in 2015, a period that has seen three promotions and 2 relegations,

Hoskins had played in 323 League games. With him playing, the team have managed to secure 126 wins, 87 draws and 110 defeats, scoring 418 and conceding 404. There have been 70 games when he hasn't played in which we won 31, drew 16 and lost 23, scoring 95, conceding 92.

So with Sam we've secured points at a rate of 1.44 per match and scored at 1.29.
Without Sam its 1.56pts per match and 1.36 goals.

So while we've done better without him in the team, there's not too much in it. You could say it hasn't mattered much whether he's played or not.

The difference since Brady took over is amazing though, especially when you consider that these last two seasons have been Hoskins purple patch. 2.23pts per game without him, 1.53pts with. That's a massive difference. We've also scored at 1.85 goals per game without him as opposed to 1.3 with, so an extra goal every two games. Finally and I admit, this surprised me. We've conceded at a rate of 1.08 with him in the side but only 0.92 without him. I know some people have said we've missed him defensively.

As other have stated, the aim has to be to incorporate Hoskins in the side without changing the way we play when he's missing. Brady knows what he's doing, I'm sure he can work out a way to do that.

Iím not sure those stats really prove a massive amount.

I donít really understand the argument, well, I do. However for me it should be as simple as Hoskins is an integral part of the squad but he isnít untouchable as should be the way with every member of the squad.

Team doing well, keep as is.

Thanks Marvo for doing the homework and for rightly adding the bottom paragraph.This isnít something thatís Anti Hoskins. Itís just that there is evidence under Brady we currently perform better without him.

So find a way to play this way with him, and we will be even better. Thatís a positive surely?

If weíre into Statistics rather than records, you could run a significance test on these data, perhaps a chi-squared or likelihood ratio test. With n=70 the small differences may actually be statistically significant. But I guess  the statisticians on each side would then start arguing about confidence limits.

the talk of hoskins / pinnock and with or without etc comes down brady having to get his best 11 out on the pitch.

leonard is our best number 10, so he must play there, usually brady has stuck pinnock in there to get hoskins in the team, so we lose out with both pinnock and leonard not in their best positions (IMO).

at the minute, if simpson starts CF, then its a straight shoot out between pinnock, hoskins and bowie for the 2 other forward roles....................if bowie starts CF, then both hoskins and pinnock can play in the front 3.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Dan on February 27, 2024, 07:11:11 am
Absolutely agree Nigel. To back up the more avenues of distribution, since Samís injury at Portsmouth, these are the goals and assists.

Pompey - Leonard
Bolton - Bowie
Orient - Leonard (A Hondy), Bowie (A Pinnock), Simpson
Rovers - Brough, Pinnock (A Brough), Leonard (A Pinnock)
Oxford - Hondy (A Leonard), Springett (A Hoskins)
Burton - Leonard (A Pinnock), Pinnock.

That is a very nice mix and demonstrates that more players are involved in the attacking half. It is also very good that Sam does feature, and so Brady will need to work out how to get similar outcomes, with him in the team.

Look at the transformation of Hondermarck in that time. Heís playing more advanced and easily performing at his highest level since joining the club.

Leonard and Mitch are having opportunities to have a few more  shots because Sam isnít shooting on sight.

For me personally, Iíd keep Sam on the bench currently and get him hungry to earn back his place. When he does get it back, it needs to have been earned and not simply because he is back fit. Again, that can be only be a good thing for the club as it means performance levels are higher.

I didn't see this fluidity at Oxford, in fact we were dire in the first half and fortunate to be level at half time due to our only decent attacking move. Again in the second half we had not had a shot on target until Hoskins laid on our equaliser. I guess we have been more fluid in some games and less so in others.

No, there wasn't a lot of fluidity on show when we played at Portsmouth, Derby and Stevenage, I guess that's what happens when you play away at sides in the top seven.  ::)

Good stats against a decent number of games. If you have a player capable of scoring regularly (even if for the past two seasons) you need to unlock the best way of using him in the side....that doesn't include right back. There could well be similar stats with other players. If Leonard/Pinnock/Simpson (whoever) is the current 'block' then we need to work out a solution as at least one or two of them won't be here soon. Hoskins won't be around forever either, with any team they need to constantly evolve. It is probably the first time that a manager has been in the position, both in terms of league position and squad, not to have to throw him straight back in. It can only help to protect him from further injury and make him hungry to regain his place.

Even the likes of golden boy Mullin have had to settle for the bench recently. Let's just hope that there isn't more to it and that Hoskin's isn't doing the business in training or still carrying something. I reckon if he was they'd be sorting it out now that we are safe.

Either way, if we keep turning out results (and playing well) he won't be getting back in, why would he? The benefit of having him as an option was seen at Oxford, although he did nearly gift them a third before that.

You're not wrong Larry but where's the fun in that?
It's also a big stretch to assume that all the goals scored by player x would be scored by someone else. Otherwise all managers would have one big spreadsheet and play their most 'successful' players every game.
Not that any of that supports Hoskins currently walking straight back into the team.

I am not sure the display at Burton can fit in the Fluid display description. Nor at Oxford either.

Since Hoskins has been out (until Oxford) Pinnock and to some extent Bowie performances have improved. Our victory at Burton was secured by a stern defensive display and greatly aided by a battling midfield too. Some are suggesting that Hoskins has to bide his time to secure a return. Which is a very correct. However Hoskins was present in the successful period prior to Christmas; this points to the fact that we owe a deep sense of gratitude for his goals this season which have significantly contributed to our current league standing.

Nice one Evers, Yes of course.

The issue is often that everything and everyone is so binary at times, I guess that is the world we live in. He has been our star and MVP, unless all of his awards were handed over erroneously, or all of the managers have got it so badly wrong. He also scored the most goals in a generation over one season. He still suffers from a 'marmite' POV from a select few, although I'd say the vast, vast majority of fans appreciate his worth to the team. Not forgetting the times when he's played all over the pitch to cover the wounded.
At the same time we have done well without him, which is just as well as he won't be around forever. The same as Leonard won't be, the same that Richard Hill, Martin Smith and Bayo weren't, so you can never be over reliant on one/two players. There have been times when we couldn't see where the next goal was coming from (other than Hoskins), so it's about time others such as Simpson (who was truly woeful) got their sh*t together. It's a good job we haven't been relying on Hylton to propel us to safety.  
He'll be back scoring goals and it is JB's job to get the best out of whatever team he selects.

I don't think you have - as when the new goalie arrived his displays were disappointing.So much to that some were pleading for the 'recall' of Burge! Can only assume you are referring to the new goal keeper from Wolves?



It was hypothetical and didn't refer to any current players..

Danny Hylton is back fit and could have been involved at Burton but wasn't selected.

Tyler Magloire back on the grass but if he plays again this season it will be a bonus.

Burge, McGowan, Koiki and Odimayo all out until the end of March at least.

Just to clarify, if our goalkeeper was suffering a poor run of form and Brady signed a replacement and from that point on our results improved remarkably, you wouldn't give any credit whatsoever to the arrival of that new player? Have I got that right?

That's right.
He would contribute to an improved overall team performance but because it's just one player of a minimum of 22 in the game that difference wouldn't be sufficient to affect the score statistically. There's absences, loss of form and improvements all over the pitch for both sides and that's before you take in the manager's input and perhaps the biggest statistical contributor of all - luck.

Says everything you need to know about Hylton if he wasn't on the bench - surely he'll be released at the end of the season. I thought Magloire might not feature this season when we signed Liam Moore - who looks a decent player anyway.

I'm not bothered about whether we see Koiki again as he's never fit and I don't think he's anything special when he is - I hope for his sake he fully recovers though from whatever injury he has. I would love the others to be back especially AK but once again they are very much injury prone.

It makes you wonder where we could be if all our players were fit - has that ever happened?

In his spare time I think he's entitled to do what he wants, just like you and me.

If Hylton does get in the 18 on Saturday he'll come up against he's good mate and former manager Nathan Jones. Could there be a coaching role for him in the summer under Jones at Charlton? Could be a strong possibility I would have thought.

I wonder if Liverpool have the same concerns, they must have had the ultimate injury list.

Gone are the days of any team only having one or two injuries for any length of time. Must be related to the 'fine tuning' that the athletes of today operate at. It certainly isn't down to blood and thunder tackles!

It'd be interesting to see some stats (I'm sure they exist) around how many players are out due to injury across each season for all teams. I am sure we are not in a unique position. I would be surprised if the number of injured players hasn't risen across football. Maybe the answer is Denis Casey's (RIP) magic sponge going into retirement.

Well we know its not because of the amount of games played...not applicable at our level. Indeed for us, we've not even bothered naming a particularly strong team in a cup match for over 2 years.

I struggle to see how sports science has evolved that much in the last 2-3 years, the period when these injuries seem to have gone up the most. For ourselves and across the board.

Training facilities are getting better and better. Phrases like 'manage their minutes' have only very recently come in to usage.

I must admit I did send an email to both Jake (RN) and James (Chron) and at least the question was asked by James at the press conference. It is not club policy for players to travel to away matches, they are free to do what they want, hence Hylton commentating on Luton.

Diplomatic and professional comments on Hylton by JB, wouldn't expect anything else in an interview.
Hylton has clearly cooked his goose. So he is definitely fit but can't get near the bench. I think that tells us all we need to know.

If Hylton has been on about £35k a game and Rashford is on around £350k a game, have we seen good comparative VFM?  :P

We had 11 players who played a minimum of 34 games:-  Russell Wilcox 34, Eddie McGoldrick 35, Graham Reed 36, Trevor Morley 37, Phil Chard 39, Warren Donald 41, Richard Hill 45, Dave Gilbert 45, Keith McPherson 46, Ian Benjamin 46 and Peter Gleasure 46.

You find that with successful teams, people want to play, will pay through the pain barrier and may not even report slight knocks. Whereas when you have nothing to play for, players will use any old excuse to get out of a trip to Carlisle or wherever. Can't be much fun playing in a relegation threatened team.

I think it has to be that players are fitter and more highly tuned athletes these days. The game is also played at a far, far higher pace, we lots of twists, turns and changes in direction.
Back in the day you had players on the booze and smoking. Take a look at the centre backs, even in our Carr season, where Richard Hill jogs past them as though they are running in treacle at a snails pace.

The best analogy is probably comparing a simple old car, verses a modern one that has far more that goes wrong. If they had the technology back then to measure distances, sprints and impacts, I bet it is a very different game. That is why it is very difficult to compare a great like George Best to someone like Messi.

As said before, it certainly isn't because of an increase in crunching high impact tackling!

Funny you should say that. I'm often left feeling watching football on TV these days that's there is actually far less goalmouth action, unless you count the keeper to the full back, then to the centre-half, then back to the keeper, then to the defensive midfielder, then to the full back, then back to the keeper who hoofs it upfield. That was 5 minutes of excitement there.

Their Seasons Prior to Signing for us: (the figure in brackets is appearances and/or in the match squad which means that although 'fit', they didn't get on the field of play)
Tyler Magloire - 20/21 (29), 21/22 (27)
Aaron McGowan - 19/20 (29), 20/21 (41)
Jack Sowerby - 18/19 (45), 19/20 (34)
Sam Sherring - 20/21 (45), 21/22 (37)
Ben Fox - 20/21 (23), 21/22 (38)
Danny Hylton - 20/21 (31), 21/22 (31)
Ali Koiki - 20/21 (19)
Shaun McWilliams - One of our own
Akin Odimayo - 20/21 (37), 21/22 (53)

They all played a significant amount of games in the season(s) prior to joining us and most of these have since played a full season for us prior to their latest injuries.
It's very difficult to forecast when players will have their major injury setbacks, or niggly little ones, that have the potential to 'end their careers'. Most footballers have at least one during their careers'.



These figures were taken from Transfermarkt... ;)

Good luck Danny in your future roles.
Whilst you never scored as many goals as youíd have liked in your Northampton career it can never be said that you were not totally committed to the cause and never gave less than 10% when on the pitch.

Good luck for the future.

Let's try giving the man a break, hardly his fault if he sustained a bad injury. It does not mean he is forever injury prone, he may go several seasons without another major injury. He has shown that he can be a major asset to the club.

Would rather get a full pre season into him with a hope he can make it into September injury freeÖ

I dont see why people seem to think that pre season training is going to make any difference to somebody who is injury prone. Its not like some sort of magic panacea. Training is training, and given our record for picking up "knocks" whilst doing so, I wouldnt imagine what time of the warmer months it takes place would make any difference.

JB also said he could be ready for the last two games and they will assess if it's worth the risk but Magloire has worked so hard and he doesn't want to blow his hopes. I think he'll get involvement in those two games.

Leave it to me, Iíve solved the lot again as usual with a quick cut and paste, especially the hamstring ones. ďFurthermore, the risk of hamstring injuries can be reduced by up to 51% when the Nordic Hamstring exercise is implemented in isolationĒ.

JB said another of our injured players could be ready tomorrow, I think that may be Willis so he could be on the bench.

The injury list is shrinking fast and most look like they will be fit for their summer holidays. What this should mean is that they all should be fit for pre season unlike last year when several players took minimal part in pre season friendlies and JB had difficulty finding 11 fit players for the opening game, look how badly we tired in the second half against Stevenage. Hopefully this will lead to a better start to the season as we will not be so hamstrung with hamstrings and this season we only took 14 points from the first 15 games.

As Brough played almost every game this season as the other 2 were injured for most of it, I think it worked out okay for us.

if all fit he wouldnt be first choice, but they werent, so he was.

He didnít during last Saturday loss. He was guilty of a few school boy errors . However he always took the game to Fleetwood, at least he tried too! Fortunately he was not involved in the dreadful opening 30 minutes of the contest. We were fortunate that by half time it was only 2-0 as it could have been 3 or 4 -0.
