He was injured a hell of a lot in his first season at United. The season before he broke his leg. His injury woes seemed to start as soon as he joined us, rather than becoming a new issue after his leg break. He's only made 30+ league appearances three times in his career. Last season, 2020/21 and his final season with Southampton.It looks like a pattern now with Shaw. He starts having injury problems after every season when he plays relatively a lot and it's usually related to his leg break. It happened in 19/20, 21/22 and this season.
Not really. Especially when you look at their previous injury records. Business as usual for all three of them, unfortunately. As per my post above, ETH actually got a better than average injury record out of Shaw last season.Mount, Varane and Shaw makes it three and all within the first month can’t be a coincidence right?
He's always been prone to muscular injuries, hamstrings etc.It looks like a pattern now with Shaw. He starts having injury problems after every season when he plays relatively a lot and it's usually related to his leg break. It happened in 19/20, 21/22 and this season.
Good point.It's a decent list, but a bit over exaggerated as per usual.
Mount is easily covered with Eriksen.
Amad and Mainoo are kids and won't play much this season.
Martial is nothing new, he is constantly injured.
Malacia is a squad player.
Højlund is unknown.
So its basically Varane and Shaw who are injured and will be missed. So Lindelof/Maguire/Evans/Dalot will have to cover for them.
well it all depends on the medical team in the club they have to decide who can perform on the long run and who doesn't they also have to make solutions for players with week history with injuriesGood point.
Pretty much anything that happens at OT becomes massively overblown. Because anything associated with United Tutuapp 9Apps sells papers or is an important media story.
Football players pick up injuries.
And the current injuries don't seem to be the same type.
But what concerns me is why United seem to sign a number of players who then have a spate of injuries not that long after.
Here in lies the problem and hits the nail on the head, how can Fernandes be ready to play and does play every preseason game (well most preseason games) and be available for all league matches so far yet we have injuries all round. he’s made of steal and I fear our H&C dept are not up to scratchThe ridiculous scheduling of preseason has really impacted us.
Fair play to Bruno he hasnt missed a minute
