Come on..you always come across as a smart guy. Do you really think these pictures - of ice baths and players using basic equipment for what is a likely a warm up session - are really indicative of any wider issues?


I was being slightly tongue in cheek, but the proof of the pudding will be seen in August/September especially, but throughout the season too.

I have a good friend who's a professional physio and over the years I have often tried his patience droning on about West Ham's injury/fitness woes. His take is that while the installations, equipment, technology are useful tools, the crucial factor will always be the expertise of the professionals involved. And he works at a club where they think 2/3 players out is an injury crisis!

Stijn's results were a clear sign that he wasn't achieving what he was employed to do, no matter whether he has a great CV and was a lovely bloke (apparently)

Now he's been replaced with new expertise (logically in my opinion) and we'll see what happens under the new guys. My worry is that, while it was a good call to change the medical team, Slav still has his ancient fitness coach in place, so it'll be interesting to see how that works out.

And thanks for the "smart guy" comment - I showed it to my youngest son and he hasn't stopped laughing all morning :P

Agree with all of that (even if I do think you should maybe ban yourself from discussing it *quite* so often for the good of your blood pressure).

It is laughable that some people think using basic equipment = a damning indictment of the training regimen. God knows what the reaction would be to a sleeveless, shinpadless Lanzini that was posted on Twitter earlier :shock:

Just for shits and giggles.

Tore out for another four months. We stopped paying his £60,000 a week wages at the end of June. What an extraordinary waste of money that was.

That's what, about £5.5million for 8 appearances?

Hardly his or our medical department's fault if he got clattered in training though, is it? Completely unforeseen.

Of course, wasn't trying to lay blame to our medical team. Just couldn't see a reason to start a new thread about him and it involved an injury. Still money down the drain.

Some of our problems stem from players saying they are ok to come back from injury when they are not. The lower end medical staff would say "I don't think you are ok, not quite yet", the player then would moan to Stijn Vandenbroucke. He'd say "if you think you're ok, you're ok. Slav, that player isn't injured any more, cash him in". Cue pulled hamstring or whatever. Of course he was under pressure to bring players back as soon as possible, but not keeping them out long enough was a major problem.

Wasn't there a story about Antonio being unhappy about being rushed back from injury last season? Maybe it's not always the players' fault.

Could there be a compensation claim coming from Besiktas re Tore? Wouldn't surprise me at all. :)
