Just released. The knee injury to Martinez is indeed serious and he’s expected to be out for at least 2 months. ?.

Could have been worse, others needs to step up.

It's ok, he'll be back for the title run-in.

05 Feb 2024 20:21:23
Saw the list of games and think only City that we will really miss him for. Rest of games with Varane, Maguire and Lindelof back now should be able to cope.

Especially with two weeks international including, after the rumours last night I’d say 8 weeks is good news!

05 Feb 2024 22:20:54
Bet he doesn't figure again this season and we don't have anyone anywhere near as good as cover.

I think that depends on a number of factors Salford.
If we are in race for top 4 and need him then it maybe that he plays but if there is no hope for 4th then perhaps he won't play again this season and in that scenario it might be for the best.

I agree what's the point of rushing him back if we are out of things. I know they said 8 weeks but knee injuries are tricky and I would not risk it at all.

Huge game this weekend folks. We beat villa and we will reel in both spurs and villa imo with 14 games to go.

We have very tough games later vs city, Liverpool and Arsenal with 2 being at home and will drop points but so will all the other teams above us. I have a feeling we will decide who wins the Pl Title this year even if we are not in it. Would be great if we crush liverpool's chances:) anyone but them imo.

Martinez isn't the type of player that will want to sit it out on the side lines, he will want to back playing ASAP even if it means playing the last 3-4 games.
The guy is a winner through and through.

It's a totally different injury to his foot so there shouldn't be any issues with that.

However, knee ligament injuries need to be given ample time to fully heal or you risk reinjuring it if you try to come back too soon.

Ultimately a players health should always be put above the sporting aspirations of the club.

If we have to wait an extra few weeks for him to come back then that's what we need to do.

I'd rather miss him for an extra few games this season then risk him reinjuring it, missing pre-season and maybe the start of next season.

This season is pretty much done for us at this point. Bar a run in the FA cup and an outside chance of top four. But to get top four now probably means a big drop off in form from one of the teams up there already as well as us putting a consistent run together.

For me this season now is mostly about getting players fit, giving youth an opportunity to develop and having a go in the FA cup.

No so fast my friend, a win this weekend and we are right there. Spurs and villa have to play each other and they also have a tougher remaining fixture list imo. 14 games after this weekend 5 point gap is really nothing. Its all up to us and I am an optimist:)

10 Feb 2024 09:23:06
Ahmad, and a loss to Villa this weekend and it's an 8 point gap with 13 games left to play.

We've managed to play better in the last few games since we got a few players back from injury. Martinez being probably the key one. Unfortunately he's now injured again.

Our form is finely balanced on keeping players fit. A couple of injuries and our season falls apart again.

I'm optimistic that we can get top four, but I'm tempering that optimism with the reality that injuries could well derail our season again as they have the first half of the season. While we also need two teams above us to drop more points than us over the remaining fixtures.

Which means that the odds are slightly stacked against us. Can we beat the odds? Sure of course we can. But I wouldn't be banking on it or expecting it.

I agree a loss would be 11 point gap and then it too far gone. I think we will win a tough/ close game 2-1 or 3-2 imo if villa show up. we will show up and If Martinez was playing I would have us winning with bigger margin. The options as cb pairings don't give me a lot of confidence, the rest of the pitch we are good imo.
