'Scientists haven't got round to disproving by garbage theory so it's definitely legit' thread for this pish. 

Scientists have found no evidence whatsoever that playing on an artificial surface is a physiological cause of injury for footballers at any level of the game. It directly follows from this that there can be no physiological reason for injury relapses on an artificial surface, seeing as there isn't any physiological difference in the first place. 

Didn't think we'd have to walk you through Logic 101 class as well, but here we are.

Hes 34, has had 16 years of knee injuries, and had two surgeries on the same knee. You're a fucking moron if you cant see how he'll never be able to get a surgery that rids him of that, certainly not while he wants to keep playing.
Don't tennis players disprove that? Nadal would have been fucked had he done his knees ten years sooner, but he's recovered to the top level. Murray will hopefully recover after his hip resurfacing. Footballers have come back from injuries than in previous years would have been career threatening. If anything, staying off firm pitches would make some sense if the reason for his plastic pitch "exile" is the one given. After all, there are some springy artificial surfaces out there and there are some very firm grass pitches in Scotland, especially in the winter. Almost like not all plastic pitches and not all grass pitches are identical.

Again. Nothing I've said is my opinion, just what was relayed by Steven MacLean. How you've not grasped that yet is incredible.

All this plastic pitch chat has just convinced me further that this game is a stick on 0-0. 

There's never ever ever been a good game on an artificial surface. Apparently.

Steven Fletcher scores again. Bugger all wrong with him .
Maybe he called off because he knew he wouldn't get thru the airport metal detectors with his brass neck?

It reflects a lack of discipline and commitment in the squad when, on the back of the autumn shenanigans, you've got the goalkeeper retiring at short notice... 2 players not travelling citing the playing surface... and a principal striker being omitted for injury yet starting (and scoring) in 2 games in 4 days the week before.

Mulgrew's not been in the squad for Blackburn's last two due to an injury.

Listened to sportsound the other night, Steven Thompson has been with Faddy basically said that Fletch couldn’t have played on AstroTurf because of injuries he’s had and is managing at the moment, so that ruled him out of Kazakhstan and basically the San Marino game we should have enough to get by them regardless of which striker plays upfront. So they told him to stay at home rest up.

Which probably is right enough, hopefully keep him fit enough for next two games. Where he’ll be vital to us.

Careful now, I tried to make the point this might be the case and got met with three pages of hounding and abuse.

Another MOTM performance by McGinn. Villa fans love the guy and are convinced a big offer from a EPL team will come in soon enough.

I think he's going to end up starting both games now. Need him to be a bit higher up the pitch though as he'll still make silly mistakes from time to time.

McGregor should be the main man in midfield, but I'd be happy enough to see any two of McTominay/McGinn/Armstrong alongside him.

What's the over/under on withdrawals this week? I'd go 7.5.

I think we should play all of them.   

McTominay - McGinn 
Forrest - McGregor -Armstrong

I've been watching Ollie Burke quite a lot since he's came back to Scotland.    He's essentially a greyhound with an excellent burst of pace and absolutely no peripheral awareness.    I can see quite a lot of Didier Agathe in him, which makes me wonder whether Burke might ( one day) be the answer to our RB/ RWB conundrum*

* I'm absolutely NOT suggesting Burke starts at RB next week.

Liam Kelly's getting called up to replace Archer.

I'd consider Findlay if/when McKenna and Mulgrew pull out.

 

ETA: Findlay has indeed been called up - Archer, Bannan and Mulgrew out.

If McKenna pulls out, I imagine Halkett will also be in. Although I said this last time...

I don't think Kelly has been as good as of late as he was at the start of the season, so it's a surprising call up.
