I think under Mowbray we had a much bigger squad though as well so presumably you get more injuries. I'd also wonder if some of them were maybe less than genuine.

Under Mowbray we seemed to pick up loads of muscle injuries, so much so that we had some sort of post-season investigation into it. I remember the Gazette having an article making a big deal out of it.

 

Aye I remember that actually. Said mogga was too trusting of the players and expected they would be as professional as him, so he just believed them when they said they were injured

There's this article from during the Mogga era:

Haroun (Hamstring)

Bikey (Hamstring)

Leadbitter (Hamstring)

Halliday (Achillies)

Hines (Knee)

Woodgate (Calf)

Carayol (Knee)

Arca (Toe)

 

And that was in December... 3 bloody hamstring injuries! Jesus...

 

Will keep digging and see what I can find about injury histories for this season and previous. Interested, now...

Back to the game, it was great meeting Pompeysmog for a couple of beers.

Plus got my signed balls finally completed with the addition of Rhodes, Ramirez and the gaffer himself, Mr Karanka!!!!!!

Not sure what to do with them now. I want to raise money so maybe an silent auction or something?

We didn't have a bigger squad under Mowbray, mate. Heres the number of players who made 5+ appearances each season:

 

TONY MOWBRAY

2011/12 - 24

2012/13 - 28

 

AITOR KARANKA

2013/14 - 26

2014/15 - 22

2015/16 - 22

I'm pretty sure we had a first team squad of 35/36 at one point?  Just because many of them didn't play doesn't mean they weren't there bud.  We had bigger first team squads under Mowbray than we have now by some distance I'd bet, they were just full of dross.

If I remember correctly we had a problem with hamstring injuries and club has installed a sand pit for the players to train on to help reduce the number of injuries

Well if they're all sat building sandcastles all day it means they can't knack their hamstrings doing all that running around.

    • words rarely seen in same sentence.            Joey Barton is innocent..  or not guilty. Obviously Barnsley manager dived despite testimony of eyewitness 
    • It’s clear Wilder plans on a long term stay at Boro. He has a “free hit” this season, as expectations are not sky high. We have limited money available and moving players on may not be easy as supposedly we pay more that a lot of clubs (maybe to get players to the north-east?). All of the above suggests to me, he will only sign players in January who are exactly what he wants and that if he can’t find them he will be prepared to wait until the summer rather than settle for something second best. That being the case we might not see as much movement as is hoped. The departures might be limited to those who definitely can’t  fit into the style and those with longer term contracts where we might as well take the hit now as later, but in each case only where we can find the right replacement and we get the right saving (either in transfer fee or in cutting wage bill). Incomings might be one or two permanents, plus loans from Premier League where we have no long term commitment or huge cost In terms of possible departures, Hall fits into the first category and if we can’t find an experienced replacement, Wilder might be planning to use Wood to give him experience and see if he can step up. Uche fits into both categories and if we can get some of our money back, I think he will be on the road. With Hernandez and JLS, it depends on whether there are any recall clauses allowing us to end the loan in January. I would doubt it - and both can do as squad members until end of season, so I am a bit doubtful they will be on the way. Stoj ends his contract at the end of the season and he may be able to find another club to take on his wages. If he does, then maybe one of Hemmings or Brynn will be recalled as third keeper. In terms of quality I think they would be fine, although in many ways they would be better getting first team experience where they are. Although I am not a fan of either Daniels or Lumley, again I think our wage commitment to them may prevent either leaving - unless we can and want to loan an equivalent of Dean Henderson ( as he was when SU loaned him). If Wilder can get his ball playing centre half, then Dijksteel can cover RWB and I would leave Spence to get the experience at Forest. yes, it helps them, but it may be beneficial in long term either in his development and attitude or in raising his value. So for me, OUT - Hall, Uche, Stoj and Browne and Coburn on loan. IN - good centre half and a couple of forwards, maybe one on loan. Also either Taylor or another left back for the rest of the season. Any other incomings only where we get a bargain or cut out other clubs ( e.g. where a player will be out of contract in summer and we would end up in a bidding war)
    • Hartlepool or Sheff Utd in the cup. Or just for kicks and giggles Derby.
    • Looking at Sheff Utd most of the keepers he brought in were around 22. I wouldn’t be surprised with a loan move for a Liverpool or Man City keeper.
    • there’s two considerations for me in this. Firstly, I think some of this depends on where we are going to play Djik. If he is now a CB then I would want a RWB to come in and Spence is the most obvious choice. He can challenge Jones for the spot and competition will be good for both of them.  I don’t want it to be the case that if Jones has a dip in form, suspension or injury that we are having to juggle several players about. the secondary issue is where is Spence’s head. Does he want to come back or is he done with Middlesbrough. I don’t want anyone that may be disruptive in the dressing room. I am not saying he is or isn’t I have no knowledge either way but I would want to know where his head is at.
