Finals are not in the equation unless we win every match and knock off the eagles away! However! One week at a time!

Best on in the scoobs with a calf would probably suggest he’s alright to play football
I was riding a bike but couldn’t run 3 weeks later

Seriously do you want me to bump the Wells thread and the 6 months of chat about calves?

They aren’t what you think they are in terms of injury

We can sneak into 8th if we drop to the cats and eagles and have some results go our way. Win all and we could finish 6th or 7th.

Yeah if he still had calf issues he wouldn't be playing.

Iam prolly i bit in gasos camp with this one. In my case twice i thought i had recovered from my calf then twangggg there it goes again. And 2 pretty innocuous actions in stepping up a ladder and stepping out of a golf cart.

Would like to see him up the ground more if he is to maximize his playing strengths and if he is to possibly improve the overall current set-up.

That needs some re-education and over a solid block at the lower level as well

Dominate for that extended period of re-education & force a reinstatement, then no probs with his inclusion.

So you riding a bike is comparable to an “elite” footballer playing scoobs with a best on? ... if he was too sore to play, he wouldnt be named an emergency dude

Sorry

I forgot who I was posting to
You’re comparing your injury to an athletes injury who has the best medical treatment available?? Who’s sole job is to play football and be physically fit enough to perform at the highest level? This is hardly comparable to a middle aged man in lycra on his sunday bike ride getting in the way of motorists with a sore calf

So around Page 116 onwards (mid 2016) in the Wells Past Players Thread is the whole discussion around the problems of Calf Injuries
