Tarks injury

Post by fidelcastro » Sat Sep 19, 2020 2:25 pm

According to Jeff Stelling, Tarkowski is doubtful for tomorrow's game.

I thought it was nothing major.

Or is it just SKY getting it wrong?

If there is a risk of aggravating it, he should sit.

Must admit I have my suspicions because

he played every minute last season
he was the only missing first teamer on Thursday after a week of rumours that clubs were interested in him and one had made an offer
no mention of any injuries prior to Thursday
on Thursday we read it was nothing major and had it been a PL game, he would have started
today we hear he could be a doubt when we know it takes something major for him not to declare himself fit

We'll find out tomorrow, according to Sean it was just precautionary that he missed the SU game, but you do have to wonder given all the speculation about his future in recent weeks.

On the other hand, if he's got a slight niggle, then it makes sense not to risk him, he's one of our key men, and we can ill afford to lose him for a lengthy period, especially with Ben Mee already side-lined.

Can you have a ‘slight niggle’ with a sore toe? It’s either sore or it isn’t.

If he really does want to join West Ham then it’s purely down to money (not blaming him for that) as he stands no better chance either winning anything or becoming an England regular.

Do professional footballers not just have painkilling injections on broken toes and play? I’m sure Les Ferdinand once played the majority of a season doing this?

I’m aware we’re not sure what the issue is but I’m thinking that or an ingrowing toenail are the favourites

What’s interesting to me is that West Ham keep bidding for him. They must have received some encouragement from his agent to do so, because if he had no interest in going there why would they bother?

Or they’ve had no encouragement but want him so keep offering more money hoping we accept

Oh I don’t know Declan Rice is an England regular, and I think he’s well below the standard

Doesn’t matter if we accept if the player doesn’t want to move there. We can’t force him to go. But fact that West Ham are going up in small increments which are seemingly well below our asking price suggests to me they might be hoping the player forces a move.

Thing is, now is exactly the time we should be looking to sell him. He’s just had a great season, is at peak age and has two years left on his contract. We’ll never get a better price for him than now. But the Gibson situation has thrown a spanner in the works by leaving us with no natural replacement and with a Mee injured too we risk being forced to overpay for a replacement. We need one CH in before we let one go.

I thought someone, possibly CT, on the Sheff Utd match thread the other night, said that if the cup game had been a league match then Tarks would have played. Has that changed any since then.

Add to all the comments above-he lost the captaincy in the recent friendly a week ago, and you start to wonder if the club is pulling the wool over our eyes

My hunch is that while negotiatiions are ongoing he's not going to play, the possible buyer(s) won't want him cup-tied.
But my other hunch is that we won't receive a decent enough offer to sell him.

The club could easily have said 'not for sale' to West Ham and saved them keep coming back time after time. You can only assume the reason they haven't is that they want to draw a bigger player - probably Leicester - into the market.

They seem more likely to be able to come up with a deal that appeals to both club and player

They can’t say not for sale ( if this release clause exists ) all they can do is tell them they’re not offering enough

If we are starting with Long and Dunne tomorrow then I really do despair that we have come to this. I am sorry for any disrespect but, good grief , we are a premier league team that finished 10th last season on the strength of our stability in defence - we just can’t start the next season with 2 back up CHs, can we ?

Well if both of your first choice centre backs are injured then you’re always going to be starting with two back up centre backs.

Hopefull he’ll be fit to play tomorrow. Totally understandable that Dyche didn’t want him to play in the league cup with a minor injury.

Should our best 2 central defenders be injured in November I doubt anyone would expect us to have better 3rd and 4th choices.

That's my point. It's just bad luck that we can't move until we get enough money for Tarky.

IF it’s a case of Tarks angling for a move we need to hold firm and get the price that we want.And our manager has to be given the full profit (after Brentford’s cut) to spend on the team...If this doesn’t happen Garlick is taking the ?i55

If Tarks stays and Mee patners him when fit , we need a very good back up ie Dawson, Jones,Bennett of Wolves and then Long as back up. Not necessarily them but this level.

If Tarks leaves we need two-a very good CH to start ie Dawson, a back up and a fit Kevin Long

If he is on his way and it is amicable enough, would you still play him? Or, would you play Jimmy Dunne? I would play Tarky until he is sold. Every point is precious.

Edit: but not if he is going to Leicester

Pre-transfer mock injuries are almost always toes.

Not something so you have to prove it, but possibly bad enough to stop you playing.

Toes, the perfect pre-transfer mock injury. Ask Danny Ings.

I think that may well be true re Ferdinand, but it turned out to be his final season and he never played again after that! Can't think why??? :o
