Yesterday good old Jack told the panicking fans that Carroll will be out for up to 8 more weeks and that he will make a full recovery. It was almost scripted but do they not think that we will do our homework?
Basically the problem is Carroll is top heavy, nothing he can do about it that’s just how he is built but he like Basketball players are plagued with this problem because their feet and ankles cant handle the pressure put on them when they jump and land. Like Carroll Basketball players are big guys so there isn’t much you can do about this injury.
If they stop jumping which is the solution they are out of a job, if Carroll stops jumping then he suddenly becomes an average player which cost us 15 Million. For a professional sportsman the recovery time is around a year and any sooner is classed as being rushed back, they will recover like Jack said but it will re-accure unless they change the way they play.
It cant be cured, it can be managed. Sportsman are given special soles but they will prove tricky for a footballer because of the boot, Basketball shoes have plenty of room in them but football boots hug the foot these days so they will have to find someone that can develop a sole that will fit into a football boot.
Also he will have to have jabs to stop the pain, in a nutshell we are being spun a load of bollocks. What they are saying is he will recover which in part is true what they are not saying is it cant be cured unless he changes his whole style of play. Andy Carroll is all about heading the ball whole specializes in jumping above the defenders to get to the ball first, without that he suddenly becomes average.
One last thing why O why are they still using a kid to break bollocks like this on twitter?They are trying to get a quick feel good factor back to cover the problems we are having on the pitch, fucking amateurs the lot of them!
