As I put in the Smith thread , he suffered another stress fracture before we where due to play Chelsea before the Covid break.He couldnt train during lockdown  he has been thrown in with hardly any training that's why he looks so off the pace

Where has that story come from?

Smith has said so himself. It explains why he's looked so off the pace if he's hardly trained.

Interesting. So I guess in normal circumstances he'd have been ruled out for the season. I assume with the lockdown he simply couldn't do any rehab at training ground for two months.

He's miles off the pace and shouldn't be starting. I really doubt anyone is going to come in with 20m + bids. Remember he did sign a new deal last August.

Yeah would of been out for season, from what I can gather with a stress fracture the most he would be able to do is cycling /swimming.

You canít blame the management for a professional footballer letting himself go and becoming a lard arse.  You can blame them for thinking itís a good idea to bring him into vital PL games looking like said lard arse.

My point is that weíve snookered ourselves and despite having the jan window to solve the issue was ended up with a replacement so useless that he canít get on the bench when McGinn is barely able to cover 5 yards to get on a pass after half an hour.

Of course the players are to blame for being out of shape and/or a bad presence in the squad.

But why the hell are we having to pick between two players so hopelessly ill equipped to do a job in such a key position? That bit isnít their fault.

Much better performance today from SJM.  Much more drive and energy.

Thought he performed better than Man Utd game, but still a shadow of his former self. Looked knackered at HT but not going to criticise his effort today... much better. 👍🏼

Better today. Should have been subbed but looked up for it, covered a decent amount distance and attacked a lot more.

When Samatta missed that header SJM was up there next to him.

Interesting that he had another stress fracture as he had looked off the pace. Promising for the last 3 games that he's looked better in the last 2 games.

2 pretty bad injuries then back to back is going to take a while to get over. No friendlies or real warm up period before the re start despite being longer than a normal summer break won't have helped, and Mcginn clearly hasn't got the fitness levels he had pre injury. I hope he stays next season and is the driving force of the side to come back up.
