We've had a horrendously shit schedule with little / no pre season. I think next season should be more of a realistic barometer.Harvey Barnes appears to be the latest in a long line of players that are out for much longer than they should be. He was supposed to miss 6 weeks - 6 weeks ago. There is no sign of him returning.
The extended absences of multiple players this season - Soyuncu, Ricardo, Castagne, Ndidi, Maddison, Vardy, Under, Praet, Morgan - for example, have really cost us. All have been out for longer than they were supposed to be for all sorts of different types of injury.
I know it's not an exact science and set backs will occur but there is something wrong with the frequency of it happening for us this season. It does not reflect well on the restructure of the medical department for this season.
There are two jobs for medical staff - preventing injuries and rehabilitation. In both, we had been piss poor this season.
