Our sick list

Postby ClaretAL » Sat Aug 11, 2018 6:56 am

Hi All.

Starting to lose track of all our sickness progression or lack of it, from on the grass to touch and go, to rumoured not to being injured at all and was going to be off. So now the window is shut, do we know exactly when we can expect to have our lot back?

Brady & Vydra will play for U23s v Cardiff on Monday
Defour - some time yet
Heaton - no info
Pope - months away

What exactly has Defour done? It's more or less a full month since we went to Cork (when he picked up this injury).

He did reply to someone on Twitter that he would be back 'soon' though.

Thanks CT.

Defour was going up and down the steps in JHU at the Aberdeen game fine and no signs of strapping from what I could see. But I'm sure he would be in the team if there was no issues. I can only presume after him spending time with the Belgium physio team and the returning early after the break to get his fitness up, that there has been another issue.

As good a player as Defour is think when his contract runs out at the end of the season it's time to say goodbye unfortunately. With our squad size we just can't afford to carry someone with his fitness record, and as he gets older it will only get worse.

Defour has been out a long time, and it's a long season. He needs to be not just injury free but fit enough, which given his calf set back will mean another month at a guess. I just really hope that when he gets back we stays back, because we need him.

Heaton and Pope are no longer emergencies as I think Hart will be more than a good enough stand in. Wood having a bite isn't an injury as such, as once it's cleared up he should be fine. If Brady and Vydra are back soonish, then it'll just leave Defour who will be a big miss. Hopefully in 2-3 games time, the injury list won't look as alarming.

I think Heaton will start on Sunday with Hart given the Europa League, haven't seen it mentioned anywhere but Tom is banned for 30 days from playing in the Europa League because we asked to replace him with Ledzgins against Aberdeen.

Will be interesting to see if there is rotation: Hart Europa, Heaton Premier League? If Thursday in Istanbul and Sunday in Southampton can disrupt sleep patterns, maybe a keeper's concentration will be more at risk than an outfield player?

Good to know that Tom is fit again.

What did Lindergard do? And, would Joe Hart have started if Anders was fit?

Hi jrgbfc, really? We write off our most skilled player because he's picked up some injuries? Agree, Defour's career has been set back a number of times with injuries - he wouldn't have come to Burnley if this wasn't the case. But, if Steven Defour wants to extend his stay - and the terms are right for the club (and, why wouldn't they be)? then I'd want to see Defour continue with us.

If he can get fit by September/October and we get pretty much a full season out of him then he's definitely worth keeping. But looking at his previous track record with injuries I'd say that's extremely unlikely, especially as he's had no pre season whatsoever. Can we really afford to pay someone good money in a key position on the off chance they're gonna be fit?

Possibly. There's always that. I guess from a manager's POV it's also a good way to keep both happy knowing they'll be playing. For now, at least.

That's why I say "terms are right for the club." If Steven Defour is carrying the risk of repeat injuries, then I'd expect wages offered by Burnley or any other club to take this into account.

Hope we see him back soon as a 90 minutes star player.

The Defour situation is a real concern. Without a proper preseason he struggles with fitness. Even when over his injury I think it will take a while before he can get back to the performance levels we saw in the first half of last season when he was instrumental in our strong run. Once he got his injury our form dropped off and we struggled to create. Evidence of the three competitive matches we’ve played so far is that we still lack creativity. I expect us to be solid but think this will be a much tougher season than last, especially with two of the three promoted teams investing heavily.

Our experience of Defour should tell us that he is a 25 game a season man (injuries and recuperation take their toll) if we can maximise that contribution then we have a wonderful asset and the opportunity to develop others in the role with his assistance at Gawthorpe. This of course requires rotation not a massive part of our recent experience but something we will have to incorporate should we progress in cups. SD for all his liking of settled sides has regularly talked about monitoring peoples numbers from a performance and health perspective and we have not got a situation where we have sufficient depth in many areas where rotation can be employed. Ben Mee is another where we are going to have to do this in coming seasons.

should have added "at best" - but if he was given proper rest time and not played mid-week then he could achieve 25

Our home games are when we'll miss Defour,against the lower level teams who will sit deep and play counter-attack tactics,he can create something in the tight games,that will turn potential draws into wins,vital for a club like ours.

We do have a big decision to make at the end of this season whether to commit to another year for Stephen,ATM i'd be wary of triggering his extension purely on the amount of minutes he can contribute on the park.

Listen to Dyches interview "Tom wasn't available due to Uefa rules"

It was part of the stipulation to replace him with Ledzgins against Aberdeen, in hindsight, Heaton should have sat on the bench with the minor calf injury he had.

According to Dyche yesterday Brady isn’t ready to play in the U-23 game today. More worryingly he’s said Defour won’t be fit for “a number of weeks”.

Considering Defour’s lack of a preseason, we’re going to be lucky to see him this side of Christmas at this rate.

I think we have to crack on as if Defour doesn't even exist. If he ever manages to achieve a clean
bill of health and return to full fitness (whatever that is for him) then we can consider that
to be a bonus.

In the meantime, he is sadly out of the frame and not to be relied upon, which is no fault of his own.

Agreed. It’s not just the getting back on grass and then getting match fit in the U23s. It’s then playing enough to find some form.

That’s a process of months.
