Title: Is Gylfi injured?
Post by: Icetoffee on March 12, 2018, 04:21:34 PM
Media in Iceland is reporting that Gylfi injured his knee during the Brighton match. He seemed to twist his knee early in game but managed to shake it off and play on. Now they are saying that it might be serious and he might even miss out on the World Cup this summer.

Anyone here heard anything about that?

Wouldnít it be marvellous to have Walcott and Sigurdsson both out injured

Looked sore and he was deffo feeling it but seemed to play on OK, maybe his influence diminished a bit.

Not heard anything from the club however, would be very disappointed if true.

It would be very Everton for this to happen just as he is consistently playing well.

Really hope heís OK, for him, for us, and for Icelandís sake.

If he is out I really hope we start playing Vlasic.

Would be gutted for us to be without him for the rest of the season but more for him potentially missing out on the world cup, in what is his countries first appearance I am sure, and where he would be heading into it as their star man

Well, we've nothing to play for now. Gives him a rest, and hopefully can get a good close season with us and come back firing for next season.

Gives the likes of Klaassen a go.

Please do not move Rooney forward to the role.

Bit of over reaction going on here, without a pitch side scan the physio can only go by what heís told by the player to an extent and if the player is adamant itís fine then he is mostly to blame, if he felt anything
minutes later he should  of asked to come off.

The word IF is used a fair bit in this post. Suggesting there's a machine available to scan injuries pitchside, is the stuff of science fiction, and is spurious to say the least. A certain amount of experience and decisive decision making is a prerequisite in any form of medical aid. This didn't appear to be evident where the pitchside Everton medical staff were concerned.

Wasnít for a minute suggesting that a pitch side scan was even feasible, obviously itís not and never will be (within our lifetimes anyway) that was just to illustrate the point that if nothing is visibly wrong on the surface and the player says itís all fine what sort of decisive decision making are you suggesting the physio was lacking in ?

I would think precaution should have been uppermost in the physios mind. That not being the case has left us without an important player.

They also had the opportunity to sub him at half time. They missed the problem there too. As for taking every player off, that's a worse shout than a pitchside scanning machine.

Given his importance to the team's shape and set pieces (plus the total length and amount of funds committed), you could argue he's our most important player/asset.  Criminal not to treat him with the utmost caution in what is close to a meaningless fixture.

On the other hand, it's 0-0 in what most of us agreed was a must win in order to avoid being pulled into the relegation battle? It was also 0-0 at half time.... do we take off arguably our best player at the moment? If the player himself thought it felt fine to continue why take him off?

So whose our second most important player then ? You tell me, maybe Tosun, maybe Rooney or Pickford,
So if the Physio has to come on for any of them do we take them off automatically ? Look at the photos, nowhere is he writhing in agony, most likely saying itís fine, no problem.

Don't think we can apportion blame to either the player or physios in this scenario, Sigurdsson feels able enough to come out for the 2nd half and the physios have to trust the players own judgement of his body to a a certain extent. I injured my knee first game of this season put played the remaining 70 mins as at the time it felt sore but not debilitating, I couldn't walk for two days after and was out for around 6 weeks.

Shit happens and we'll just have to deal with it, the main thing is we don't rush him back needlessly.

As usual, youíve decided that people mean a certain thing, and then youíve ran with it.

To be fair mate, I think he's just responding to people trying to pin the blame on the club's medical staff. Maybe they should have done better, but if the player says he's fine to continue then they'll obviously leave him on. Perhaps it just flared up after the game.

I'd also contest the idea (although it wasn't you that said it) that this was a meaningless fixture - this was one of very few matches we could really have much hope of winning between now and the end of the season.

Nearly all players play injuries down because they want to continue playing.

Itís up to the management and medical staff to take that into account and make decisions for the good of the player and the team.

And indeed, this was an extremely important game, particularly with the trickier matches coming up.

Yeah they should make decisions but, when did it happen? If there were 20 minutes to go, then yeah, take him off as a precaution if nothing else. But if it's early in the first half (I really don't know when it happened) and Gylfi says it's ok, presumably they gave him until half time and he said he was fine to carry on. Which, again, presumably he was because people have said he played well.

The medical staff can't just take every player off when they feel a twinge, especially when they then go on to play the full 90.

There have been plenty of times where a player has played on with a ruptured ACL (I'm not saying that is what he has done). It is almost impossible to diagnose if swelling isn't present and the joint remains stable. I also don't believe he will have made it worse by playing on. This isn't the fault of the medical staff and it's ridiculous to suggest so.

You go off the information you have available to you at the time, not "let's be cautious because it could be X, Y or Z". Otherwise you'd be dragging everyone off for knocks.

Has there been an update since the scan ? Where is the word worn coming from ? Surely early stages of wear would have been picked up during his medical less than six months ago? You don't buy a cat in a sack for £45 million, do you ?
In the article I posted

I doubt an MRI would be part of a medical. Which is what you'd need to do to see if ligaments were worn but not damaged.
The one at finch farm is probably used for medicals as well as soft tissue injury updates

Whatís the point of the MRI scanner being at USM Finch Farm when it should be at the side of the pitch at Goodison??

He must of had that scan on the NHS and has to go to his GP for the result in two weeks.

There's nothing left to play for, so he gets a good rest before playing half a dozen games over summer to get his fitness back up ready to enjoy a good pre-season for us.

It also gives the likes of Klaassen an opportunity to show us what he can do for us now we have a stable team again. Could end up saving us a lot of money.

Iím not sure Sam sees Klaassen as a direct replacement, with Gueye back he will just slot Rooney in I imagine

Klaassen should play, but the manager is a bridge troll. On the other hand, he DID cost a fair bit of money.

Big sigh of relief for the World Cup, hope Sig and Iceland perform magnificently.

Who dya play left when Bolasie canít play will be a big question. Vlasic? Davies? We donít seem to have any wingers in waiting in the youth ranks.

The 10 will be fine with one of Davies / Rooney / Klaassen / Vlasic etc.

If I try to take this reply seriously...

Almost everyone here in Iceland thinks that it is impossible to have a shit tournament.  This is once in a lifetime tournament for every Icelander.   Nothing can fail, "we" got nothing to loose.  My feeling at least.

bleh what shit news, probably our most consistent performer this year, wish we dont rush him back. I want to see him kick ass in the world cup!

Hopefully, we can play Vlasic in Siggys role.

Think its more pressing to give Klassen a go, its his preferred position and we have nothing to play for so why not? We probably have a bit more leeway with Vlasic where as this could be Klassens only opportunity to stake a proper claim

I see Klassen and Davies fighting over who will play alongside Gana Gueye.

Klassen hasnt got the pace (nor has Siggy) to play the 10 role, Vlasic is neat, tidy, great touch, and can pick a pass.

Klassen going by his goals for Ajax, is a late breaking midfielder... I know he's a 10 as well, but in the Prem, i feel he is better suited in the midfield, rather than in the attacking third.

Doesn't matter to the team really. Burnley will finish 7th, we'll finish mid table and he'll get a rest. I fancy us being better defensively with Coleman, Jags and Baines back so it's just a chance for others to get a look in before the end of the season. As long as he's okay for the World Cup it's all a bit meh really.

Might be fate that Klassen returns after weeks out in the same match as Sigurdsson gets injured and needs weeks out
