No pre season. Rushed in. Just saying!
Understand what you're saying but isn't it the basic responsibility of a footballer to keep a high level of fitness all year round, even more so one without a club? If Critchley deems him fit to start then don't we have to accept his judgement?

There is a huge difference between a player being able to keep fit and being match sharp, hence why pre season takes place over numerous weeks.

Whilst I obviously do try and take a positive outlook on most things that concern the club nowadays, one of the things I havent agreed with is what @voyeur points out above; there has been too many players signed who have then gone straight in to the team without time to acclimatise with everything, including their own fitness level and match sharpness.

However, judging by the team selection yesterday, it appears that Critch may have learned his lesson on this.

I think there's a difference between maintaining general fitness and being ready to start competitive matches.

Is our training intense compared to ‘the norm’ or is it averagely intense ie) the norm? That is the question?and if it is intenser than the average intense training regime of a pro club at our level is it therefore predisposing us to a higher than averagely intense but greater than the norm injuries that persist over weeks?

we’re either intense or we aren’t!
