Injuries thread

Post by fawad000 » 27 May 2010, 18:43

I just found out today that Micheal Essien is not going to play in the World cup. This will surely be a big blow for Ghana.

P.s I did not see any injury thread so I made one. I apologize if there was an injury thread already in place.

I think its time to put this thread to use :)

Arjen Robben recently got injured in the Hungary vs Netherlands friendly, and he doesn't look like he will be playing for the world cup.

the thing with that, its that its the world cup, and just knowing the other team's star striker has a fractured arm , and wanting to win every match as much as those players want to, is gonna lead them to try something stupid. In other words, everybody will use his fractured arm to their advantage, they'll hit him there, every 50 50 ball they'll make contact with Drogba's arm, they'll do anything, to have an advatange over him and control him better.

but still its the world cup!! another 4 YEARS before he can even try again if he's still playing. If the ivory coast goes far enough maybe he will have enough time to heal it just a little more and hopefully we can see him on the pitch for at least a couple of minutes. I hate to see all that talent go to waste.

i figured i could make a 11 player lineup of players that aren't going to the world cup due to injury or atleast it looks so:


...................Adler.....

WesternMann........Ferdinand



Lass.........................Trasch



Ballack.....Essien............Obi Mikel


..............Pirlo.......


Robben ..............Drogba

Yeah, and with Drogba's form coming in to the WC....I'd duct tape my arm to my body and roll with it. I bet it would be hard to tell someone that's at that level and that competitive to kick rocks and just go home after suffering a non-lower body injury like that. I can't imagine him risking it, but I can't imagine the Ivory Coast doing much in the group stage without him either. It'll be interesting to see how that plays out.

Here is a list of a bunch of major WC players missing out on the tournament. Although, some of the players only have minor injuries and will be making a come back, such as Julius Cesar and Diego Milito.

Does Drogba have a cast on? I'm assuming he does and even if he wanted to he would not be allowed to play with the cast. It poses a hazard to other players. Imagine him going up for a ball on a corner kick and someone gets hit by the cast, its going to hurt.

I guess he could refuse a cast and wait to get one tell the WC is over but that could be harmful in the long run. We will just have to wait and see what happens but I've heard Drogba told friends he wasn't playing.

Players play with cast all the time when they have broken arms. They have to cover the cast with something so that it can't hit other players (which I'm sure is distracting) but I've seen professional players do it. Maybe the WC has a rule against cast though, I don't know.

Yeah, despite what you may think, casts are permissible in pro play, depending on outer material/protection.

I can see it really hindering him though, and being a big target for the opposition. No reason he should play anyway. I mean, seriously, the Ivory Coast's chances of getting out of the group are slim, even with him playing. Brazil and Portugal are tough to contend with.

Brazil is strong, Portugal on the other hand is a joke. Queiroz is a clown, they have good players but they don't have a consistent striker or a formula to score, they really play and rely on individual sparks of players, be it Ronaldo, Meireles , Nani, deco, but they ttie a lot of week teams, struggle to beat okay teams, and for some reason play well against bigger teams. But by no means are they an efficient attacking team imo, and they are quite overrated. It took them massive effort to qualify to the world cup, and almost whre knocked out in a average group.

While that may be true, panchester, I think I could compile a sizable list of teams who would rather not have to play them. :P They are certainly the most likely 2nd place finishers in that group.

I agree with panchester, portugal are a joke. Even if Drogba doesn't play I see them getting second in their group and beating portugal by a few goals in the process.
