Could either player benefit from a professional study for some type of orthopaedic boot fitting to prevent strain on limbs, hamstrings, or to correct defective muscle lengths??

Similar to people having cushion soles against high impact or heel damage for instance?

I know that from wearing safety boots for many years for work, that a cushion sole and an extra inner sock can prevent soreness and heel pain.

Think out of the box for once !!

Solution - flash some cash......to somewhere like Lilleshall to sort out why Pittman & Arnold are constantly getting injured - either of their physical conditions being solved would be like signing the goal scoring striker we need - both have shown real glimpses of quality - let's put some money into top class national standard treatment to get them 100% cured and fit, or at least know if they are season long liabilities???

Or is that too simple an answer ???


I think it was Crawley last season who employed a highly qualified specialist Strength & Conditioning coach for about a month pre season. They had less injuries than any other FL club.
They treated pre season not as an old fashioned boot camp but focused on prevention of injuries by preparing properly in a modern, scientific way.

What would Town do if offered such services?

I haven't got a list, I play it on a felon by felon basis.




Forgive me as this isn't a subject to be crass or frivolous about, but I thought that was a brilliant reesponse and it did make me chuckle.

Whilst I understand the 'served his time' argument I would feel deeply uncomfortable cheering a convicted rapist.


Me too. If Town players want to kick the living shít out of taxi drivers for no apparent reason then they can fill their boots as far as I'm concerned (as long as they're half decent), but rape, now that's just not very nice...

What I don't understand is how was Clayton MacDonald found not guilty but Ched Evans was found guilty, when they were both arrested for the same thing? Surely they were both guilty or not guilty, not one guilty and the other free to go

I'm not preaching to anyone or saying it's an easy to reconcile, clear cut issue. Just that I personally would feel uncomfortable supporting and cheering a convicted rapist.

For those who take the 'he's done his time' stance, what would you say if we signed a convicted paedophile?

I'd say what the hell are we doing signing a BBC star from the 1970's.?!

I'm not suggesting you were. I was merely pointing out that football fans, and people in general for that matter, are selective with their morals when it serves their own purpose. If Town signed Ched Evans (which we won't of course) and he went on to score 30 goals this season, securing promotion in the process, the majority of fans would either 'forget' his conviction or seek to rationalise it somehow ("he should never have been sent down in the first place" etc.).

That's just the way it is.
