As a player? He's our #1 in terms of assists this season and will only get better.
He needs to put away a few more of his chances with scoring.
Pretty confident he will start doing just that.
Love him and our current squad.

Thats interesting. I don't know any liverpool fans so I don't have a read on how he is viewed.
Sometimes he looks so good. But I cant help but feel he is the sort of player that lets you down in a pinch.
You know, along with the Jesse Whites and Travis Clokes.
But he does look fantastic at times and I do hope he improves and realises his potential.

I'm an Arsenal man, but I think Liverpool can hold off City this year.

2023 Copeland Trophy Winner Josh Daicos is progressing in his recovery from some lower leg muscle/nerve pain he experienced whilst running during the three-week break.

Following a period of down-load, Daicos has commenced a running program and should progress quickly into skills over the next three weeks while monitoring his response to training loads.

Brayden Maynard is integrating into full training, ten weeks after his shoulder surgery. After a five-week block of running, Maynard has returned to contact training and will be involved in match simulation over the next two to three weeks.

2023 Leading Goalkicker Brody Mihocek had a calf complaint prior to the three-week break and has since ramped up his training intensity. The forward is expected to be cleared for match play next week.

Young half-back Jakob Ryan experienced some discomfort with running on his return to training after the three-week break, with scans revealing minor bone bruising in his lower leg. The 19-year-old will look to start re-running this week and will be assessed on how quickly he can return to training.

Dan McStay has commenced a full lower body gym program and is quicky regaining strength through his injured knee. With it now being seven weeks post-surgery, the tall forward has begun some higher intensity bike sessions and is progressing towards running within the next four to six weeks.

Further injury updates will be communicated by the Club in the lead up to February’s official match simulation and practice matches.
 
With McStay out long term, it’s gonna be very interesting if Checkers succumbs to any injuries. His pre-season calf tear is a concerning start.

A forward line comprising Cox, Johnson and McInnes as our talls won’t strike fear into any oppositions. Howe might have to pinch-hit at times.

Way to bring the mood down..
 
Does Mcstay's rehab seem to be ahead of schedule? Has there bene anyone indicate a possible return late in the season?

He seems to be doing more than I would have thought so soon after surgery.

Having said that, I haven't really followed what other players are doing at this stage of their rehab.

Definitely looks promising tho.
 
Anyone watch the training video the club released today? Maynard looked pretty sore at one stage.

They appear to be keeping open minds about it all.
McStay himself said as much Wed. am.

I just googled how long to running after ACL surgery - the site I landed on said 10-16 weeks, so if he starts running in about a fortnight he's tracking at the quick end.

Says he'll progress toward running in the next 4-6 weeks
"progressing towards running within the next four to six weeks."

So that would make it 10-14 weeks from when he did his knee.

Sounds like he's tracking at a standard pace rather than ahead of schedule - which would probably see him just missing out on being fit for the finals. But we did show with Kreuger in 2022 that we're not adverse to throwing someone in early in their return, so I wouldn't cross out the possibility.

Def not.
Reckon we'll get a fair idea how he is travelling around mid season.

I hope we’re not in a position where we have to risk him tbh. If we have Reef/AJ performing well heading in to finals I think we’d be silly to rush McStay back.

You forgot Elliot Hill Schultz

No I didn’t. I was talking about tall, structural forwards - the type who can take contested pack marks.

The three players you’ve named are all terrific, clever and impactful but are also amongst the shortest players on our list. None of them are going to be able to regularly mark high entries into F50 against the likes of Stephen May or Harris Andrews. If Checkers is out for periods during the season then we’ll be relying on AJ, Reef or Krueger to step-up. 🤞

I’m not being alarmist or pessimistic, just recognising the reality of the situation and our vulnerability. Here’s hoping Checkers plays every game and has a PB season.
