Coufal speaks with bitter blow set to bite

Vladi Coufal’s injury blow should create a recognition among us all that we really don’t often have a clue when discussing a player’s form.

Deciding who should and who shouldn’t be dropped on the basis of a few poor performances may not always been one of them however tempting at times may not be our job.

And strangely it was well known on this occasion that the Czech defender had been struggling with a groin issue for some time.

  1. Fair to say we don’t know all the facts when commenting on form, but the staff responsible for the assessment of injury and the manager surely have a duty to know? So we are really talking as fans about team selection – why play an injured player when there are options? DM being risk averse to change is actually introducing risk to performance IMO.
