Give it a rest, ffs.

I am not asking for more information about his personal medical records, merely pointing out his extended absence is made worse because the club can’t/hasn’t provided any further explanation so supporters have no idea how bad Jones is.

Stop making **** up and using it to have a go at me.
Have to agree with him to an extent, Jabba.

Not sure how the absence is made worse because the club won't divulge specific symptoms - I really don't feel that's something they have any obligation to share. Dizzy spells, loss of vision, headaches, nausea, vertigo, difficulty focusing, etc. Whatever it might be, I don't think there's any reason for Liam's specific symptoms to be publicised. We know what we need to know - he suffered a concussion, they're notoriously difficult to assess as far as recovery goes, and as Liam has been experiencing lingering effects the club has chosen to keep him sidelined.

What more would you expect them to say?

Corrwct me if I am wrong but - I think we DID try to get midfielders in...

Didn't we make bids for Hopper / Smith etc and then a big bid for Shiel - so I think the Club was trying - was the focus too narrow? ...was there a significant miscalculation in what was required to get the right developed player over to Carlton ( money contract length?)

We don't know all we know is that Carlton is a developed mid or two 'short' of being a serious headache for any opposition - instead of a flaky nuisance for the first ten minutes...
I tried to say that as you spelt it....... sounded like Elmer Fudd:D

I don’t expect them to say anything and have never asked them to.

The absence of information adds a sense of uncertainty to a situation where a player would normally be expected to miss 1-2 weeks for a concussion and instead has been missing for several.

All it does is leave space for speculation and guesswork. Players who miss this length of time sometimes don’t ever fully recover.

Supporters are allowed to be concerned about a players welfare without being accused of trying to violate the players privacy.

Fair call. I'll confess that the few posts I saw in this discussion seemed to suggest the club was hiding something, but if that wasn't the intent then no harm no foul.

We had close to our best team last time we played them.. This time we will have Charlie Curnow.

I am Not sure where they were at last time in terms of best 22.

Hard game to pick the winner because both formlines aren't great..
