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.

You do realise that my comment was a sarcastic response to your post donít you ?....surely ?

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?

I honestly believe he's been sound for us since he's come in. Big shame and sure it means more of Rooney in a position he shouldn't be in

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.

Hardly showing any concern, both Physios testing the knee as Gylfi looks on probably saying itís fine, what do you expect them to do if he says heís o.k ?

Pickford, or maybe Davies.

Canít be arsed looking back but am guessing youíre one of those that think the physioís should be mind readers with x ray eyes.

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.

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 ?

But it has to be someone's fault.

At least it shouldn't affect his pace when he comes back.

Hopefully it's just a strain and it's a couple of months out, tops.

I thought Rooney did well further forward, and he got a good amount of goals. It was the rest of the team that was shite. Gutted for Sig though, heís our best 10.

I donít think anybody thinks the physios should have x-ray eyes 😂

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

Itís an unfortunate injury, both Sigurdsson and the medical staff probably shouldíve been a bit more cautious, all of us are gutted for him, us, and Iceland, so just stop looking to lynch someone for being upset about it.
