Makes me admire the professionalism, to be honest.

I dislocated my knee almost nine years ago now, and I haven't run, kicked a ball, or even walked properly since. I'm just too worried about it giving in again.

Even walking down steps, I go left foot on every step, because I don't want to risk putting pressure on my right and again seeing my leg at a hideous angle with my kneecap off to the side.

You are not giving your bodies healing the trust it deserves. I did similar playing 5-a-side after work 20 odd years ago. I tried doing a reverse pass but my planted foot didn't twist, the knee did instead. I was playing again a few months later and not had any issues with that knee since.

WTF is he watching?

His footing I'd guess.

I wonder if the heavy watering of pitches is contributing to these injuries. Most, if not all seem to occur when a foot goes from under a player and not as a direct result of a tackle.

Hard to see that being the issue when back in the 70s and 80s and before pitches were nowhere near the standard they are now as around this time they were mainly grass-less mud heaps.  However, the technology that keeps them as such.. turf intertwined with plastic fibers might have some impact. Maybe we're just unlucky.

It will be a slow and careful re-introduction. Unless Iroegbunam really makes an impression between now and the end of the season, I can see us bringing someone in who can offer genuine competition to Kamara, even when he's fully fit. Nobody else can do what he does as well as he can. Also will need a right back and striker.

We're not doing anything radically different to anyone else, and our ACL injuries this season happened on three different pitches. I think we've just been VERY unlucky.  To be fair, the arrival of Pau and Diaby helped mitigate the loss of Mings and Buendia, but the loss of Bouba is a much more significant hit to the way we play.

Four Weddings and a Funeralling.

I want to know why he's staying at Bertie's gaff.

Not too sure about watering pitches - it's hardly a recent innovation.

But I have found a few papers which suggest that lack of sleep is a contributing factor for sports injuries? Could be relevant as Bouba is a new Dad.

No, but there are a lot of ACL injuries at other clubs too.

We've obviously had bad luck with injuries this season, but at least it waited for us to have a decent squad. If we'd have lost three players of similar importance the year we'd come up, we'd have gone straight back down.

Something that seems like it shouldn't be true (but is), Kamara is still young enough that he was eligible for Premier League Young Player Of The Season this year.

And more importantly, the last few months have shown just how important he is to how we play.

Yep, it’ll probably be impossible to get someone of equivalent quality but we really need more capable back up.

In the first half of the season, I often thought how we seemed to reflect Kamara's performance as a team: when he played well we played well, and when he played badly so did we. Without him we've looked good far less often, Doug in particular looks to have shouldered too great a burden, and the compounding loss of Tielemans has been the ultimate kicker.
