While there is no denying the injury history of Newcastle United players in recent seasons, it still remains a question as to the source of their woes.
An interesting piece featured in The Chronicle, who interviews our own resident injury expert Ben Dinnery, makes for compelling reading. Could there be something to the practices of the strength and conditioning coaches on their staff? Could it be not properly recognizing the severity of an injury from the start or bringing the player back too quickly? Is it just coincidence and bad luck that some club has to have the distinction of carrying more injuries than average? The frustrating thing for Newcastle fans is that there is no easy answer. Still, there is enough of a consistent injury crisis with the Magpies in recent seasons that suggest it could be a combination of all theories. One thing is certain, depth is important and a congested schedule can stretch the limits of a player's abilities. So when the fixtures get busy next month during the festive season, keep your fingers crossed on any of your Magpie fantasy investments. Nov 12 - 3:15 AM
