Injury Crisis - Who knows!!

Following the theme of The Chicago Addick on injuries, there has been an interesting press release from Pardew on the performance of the team so far. This is a welcome departure from the Curbishley years when the post match comments were the most we ever got from the manager on how he felt the season was going. Pardew, on the positive side, shed some light on Yassin Moutaouakil's injury. Hope that his injury was not as bad as feared, due to his joining up with the French U21's, were dashed, it appears that he will be out till at least early to mid October. The reports on Luke Varney, Cory Gibbs and Osei Sankofa were noticeable by their absence. Varney could be ready for Saturday maybe the news is held back to confuse the opposition on Saturday. What about Cory Gibbs and Osei sankofa, both of whom are potential cover for Yassin Moutaouakil. There has been no news of either of them getting injured, let alone a report of how their recovery has gone - why not?

It does appear that both these players have picked up Pouso's infection. Pouso has now been eradicated from Charltons player profiles from last season, could this be a fate facing both Gibb and Sankofa. Pardew sheds no light, only hinting that he maybe looking to bring in a loan signing to cover. So what has happened to them both, were they kidnapped in Welling, the last place that Gibb was seen or are they just quietly being shipped out of the club?

I'm glad someone else is confused. I thought maybe I'd missed something re Sankofa. Is he a long-term injury or just totally out of favour? When I saw Gibbs turn out at Welling I had real hopes he would become first-choice left-back but not so far. Can ZZ do a job at right-back for a few weeks?

I think I did read that Sankofa got injured pre-season and would miss the first 4 weeks.

As for Cory Gibbs, that is a bit of a laugh isn't it? I mean the poor bloke would have our backing when he finally played - but the club are acting like he doesn't exist.

By the way Kap, fully agree on Pards interview. That and Parky's blog is light years away from the Curbs era.

They should be congratulated.
