In before this is used as a reason to criticise the signing of Crouch.

Last time this happened was Charlie Austin six years ago, and he missed the final few games of the season.

Other than that, manager Sean Dyche has reported there are no further injuries to the squad ahead of Saturday’s game.
Does this me we have a fully fit squad or that there are no other new injuries?

He'll be covering the hospital radio show :lol:

Joking aside, my wife suffered a burst appendix a few years ago and it took her months to recover. Fortunately I took her to hospital when she didn't want to go and it burst when she was at A&E.

Wow, that's unlucky for us... AGAIN.

But suppose it's the risk you take with older players.

Luckily we are all but safe, so hopefully won't impact us more than the few quid in wages.

Our recent transfer windows look more and more disastrous as the weeks go by.

Add Walter's and Wells to that too.

You could say Brady, Ward and Hart, however injuries while here after decent service is tough luck. The Hart one was an expensive mistake with hindsight.

There's no doubt in my mind we will think twice about the next time players looking for 1 last pay day become available.

A massive lesson hopefully learnt, without being major costly regards to relegating us.

I don't suppose Vokes would have started any more if we'd kept him. (Especially since he was injured too.)

It was a dreadful transfer window and it still might cost us.

I dread to think where we would be without the emergence of Mcneil this season.

Happened to Charlie Austin. He played in our game at Blackpool on the Saturday but by the time we went to Leeds in midweek he'd been ruled out for the season having been rushed into hospital. And it is very definitely not an age thing.

In hindsight ( as stated ) he was an extremely costly ( financially ) mistake. His wages and fee could have been better used elsewhere.

Also factor in our poor form and squad moral etc.

It's no coincidence form and moral picked up on Tom's return, and he's not even the best GK at the club...

Who would have played early season when all our goalkeepers were injured.. Hart also was man of the match on here several times... Maybe you forgot about that as it doesn't suit your beliefs

I can't recall all our goalkeepers being injured when Hart signed to be honest.

Doesn't suit my beliefs? Do you mean opinion?
I just think Joe Hart was an expensive mistake for what he has done whilst here.

Even if all our keepers were injured ( I don't think they were ) there were other options out there than Hart, who lets be hones has been on a downwards spiral for a number of years now.

I agree he go a lot of man of the match awards, but lets be honest, he was the busiest goalkeeper in the league, he was bound to make some saves, it isn't to say another goalkeeper couldn't have done what he has.

Will be a fitting end to a great career if he is fit to play on the last day against Arsenal and we are already safe. It was a low risk signing for us and hasn't worked out but we should give him a rousing send off all the same.

So basically when we signed Hart our first and second choice 'keepers were very likely out injured.
If I remember this correctly, Lindegaard also picked up a minor injury about the same time.

So you would be happy to start a Premier League season with only 1 fit keeper, who was returning from a long term, serious injury. Amazing that you havn't got a job as manager in the Premier League really.

I’ve had it and doubt he will play again too. I wonder how much we have paid on wages for appearance minutes from Walters, Crouch and Defour. Hindsight is easy but ages and injury record are known in advance. Before someone rolls out the line that Walters was never injured at Stoke the probability increases.
