World Cup of injuries.
« on: June 05, 2010, 12:50:01 PM »
Maybe is because of the number of high profile players affected but I don't recall this many players out of the World Cup due to injury before.

This is a list of notable injuries so far:

Definitely out:
David Beckham (England)
Michael Essien (Ghana)
Micheal Ballack (Germany)
Jon Obi Mikel (Nigeria)
Rio Ferdinand (England)
Didier Drogba (Côte d'Ivoire)

Possibly out (as I write this)
Arjen Robben (Holland)
Martin Skrtel (Slovakia)

...And counting?

I think Drogba might come off that list by day 1.  He had some operation and the doctors said that he looking good to start.  I read it somewhere on yahoo site or something so. :beermug: :devil:

The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today are Christians who acknowledge Jesus ;with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.

Not at all.  The Premier League is the only one that has 2 cup competitions and one of the few not to take a winter break (due to fixture congestion), compounding this is the physical nature of the game in England.  Put it all together and you get player fatigue and injuries.

For World Cup Stars, So Many Games, and So Many Pains

By JEFFREY MARCUS

Published: June 6, 2010

Quote
Some of the world’s most accomplished and explosive players are limping into the World Cup, if they have made it here at all, and few are as bruised and battered as the stars of the English Premier League, where the physical nature of play is particularly unforgiving.

“England is probably one of the roughest leagues in the world,” said United States goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann, who plays for Wolverhampton. “A foul in England is a foul. In another country, they’re wondering if it’s a red card or a yellow card.”

You right about the lack of a winter break and the the physical football, but I don't think the two cups is right. I know for a fact that France also has a league cup, for example

The winter break thing is a good point.  I'll give you the physical nature of the EPL as well.

But the high profile players who have been injured all play for high profile clubs.

These clubs have very deep squads.  So even if there are 2 domestic cup competitions, most of these stars don't play in them....not until a final or semi anyway.

The premier league probably has the most players going to the WC so on average they woul dhave the most injured players. Also there are lots of other missing players who just happen to have a lower profile. Humberto Suazo comes to  mind but I am sure there are others.

What I noticed this season is that the pressure on clubs to advance in the CL is just too great. There was no reason for Fabregas to be playing injured against Barcelona and Rooney against Bayern this year. And then Torres and Gerrard put off surgeries for far too long. Even Mikel withdrawal seems more voluntary than forced.

Crazy club schedule causing World Cup injury explosion


http://msn.foxsports.com/foxsoccer/worldcup/story/world-cup-stars-injuries-down-to-ridiculous-club-expectations


It’s not “casualty,” but it’s close.

One star after another has fallen to injury in a run-up that has fans despondent and coaches apoplectic. Nearly every top team is battling injuries that range in severity from troubling to mild, but this World Cup run-up is truly striking in the number of bold-faced names flat out struck from the world’s biggest sporting event.

This weekend, four big names were hit with the injury bug: Holland’s Arjen Robben, Cote D’Ivoire’s Didier Drogba, Honduras’ Wilson Palacios and England’s Rio Ferdinand. They join an ever-lengthening list of pre-tournament question marks that threaten to directly impact the quality on the pitch in South Africa.

Didier Drogba's fractured arm is a brutal blow for Cote d'Ivoire. Unfortunately, Drogba's injury isn't the only that could decide the World Cup. Check out the other key World Cup injuries.

Missing from the finals will be Michael Essien (Ghana), David Beckham and Rio Ferdinand (England), Michael Ballack and Rene Adler (Germany) and the USA’s Charlie Davies. Doubtful are Italy’s Mauro Camorensi (knee) and Andrea Pirlo (calf); Robben, Drogba (broken arm), and Ghana’s Sulley Muntari (ankle). And that doesn’t even bring in the countless folks desperately trying to shake off injury, including American Jozy Altidore (ankle).

What’s going on here? And how important are these injuries to their teams?

Simply put, the best players in the world are being played to death. It should not shock anyone that domestic double winners Chelsea have five big names on the various national trainer’s table: Some played fifty games or more with the club over the past season, then tacked on another ten or so games with their national team. That’s typical for a top-name player these days, and averages out to over a game a week, without pause. It’s too much.

Consider also that the pressure to compete at the highest level in every game is unyielding: Clubs justifiably demand the best in every game, and with the enormous sums of money at stake, it’s hard to fault a manager for gambling with his talent. Fans demand the best from their national sides — naively assuming that the players’ pride is enough to overcome their bruising professions — and are merciless when their teams limp around the field.

But many players are simply out of gas at this point, and for proof look no further than the energy conserving tactics of Italy in their most recent warm-ups. Italy, which lost 2-1 to Mexico and drew 1-1 with the Swiss might be inviting their fans’ ire, but Marcello Lippi is trying to play smart, realizing that these games are meaningless.

And yet, even conservative Italy is struggling with fitness; against Switzerland, Lippi fielded a second-string squad, and hopes Camorenesi and Pirlo can play in the first group game.

The loss of big-name players is a killer in a compressed tournament such as the World Cup. Clubs can recover over a 38-game season. World Cup teams get as few as three games. National sides are also built under time pressure, and frequently around a central playmaker. Remove that player, and you remove the fulcrum of the team.

Consider 2002, and how France fared without a gimpy Zinedine Zidane. The champs failed to make it out of the first round, Zidane appearing only for the third group match, unable to contribute much. England’s dreams were crushed twice by injuries to Wayne Rooney; first in the European Championship of 2004, and then again at the 2006 World Cup where the striker never regained his form.

In 1994, a young Claudio Reyna was unable to contribute to the American effort; fast forward to 2006 where a critical injury in a must-win game against Ghana led to a goal and the USA’s departure from Germany.

And in 1998, Holland lost influential midfielder Clarence Seedorf, and a semifinal to Brazil.

This doesn’t bode well for fans of the Beautiful Game.
But like it or not, until FIFA sets strict limits on the number of games a player can participate in each year, the situation is likely to get worse. For these injuries are a symptom of a greater disease in football: The overwhelming monetization of the Beautiful Game. Until clubs and countries alike are reined in, fewer big-name stars will take the pitch, and poorer-quality tournaments will be the result.
