I'm imagining the Ange effect on Neto's hamstrings. Fkin massive risk.

Like the ITK on Ivan. Hope we can nick him later in the window when Brentford will likely have to fold on asking price
Pls take to Neto thread. For balance (as it’s probably got more informative posts than some ITK!) pls see below from @Hertsspur10


On the injury front to give some balance to it, a fracture to the kneecap which he missed 297 days for doesn't make him injury prone. Its firstly, really rare and just extremely unlucky. In the same manner, rolling his ankle doesn't either which was his 2nd major injury.

This season he suffered injury to both hamstrings. Now for an explosive player like him this is could be deemed slightly more of a concern. With that said, it would be slightly more concerning if the same hamstring were to break down repeatedly.

For Neto, the right hamstring was injured after a run of playing 6 games in February and it was 1 minute into the 2nd half of the match. We are always most concerned about hamstrings in the first few minutes of a game, the first few minutes of the second half and the last period of the game once fatigued. Gary O'Neil actually took a risk on him in that game as it was said Neto was fatigued and was feeling his hamstring after their Newcastle game in the match prior. His minutes should have been managed and he probably should have sat the Fulham game out where he became injured.

This leaves us with the left hamstring injury he suffered in October and he missed a couple of months for. Which has been a fairly regular occurrence for lots of players since the 2022 world cup.

Interestingly met with the West Ham and Chelsea Sports Dr's last week and we discussed hamstrings a lot since there's been a huge uptick in injuries to them in the past 2 seasons across the league.

So I would say Neto has had a very unfortunate injury history, but given the context of them all I don't think this will put a top side from taking a chance on him as they'll be confident in dealing with the hamstring management given its a focus of a lot of medical departments this summer.

Brilliant news!

Big upgrade for the team, Ange looks like he is having a big influence with potential incoming players.

Going to be a busy TW and thanks for the ITK!

Could be a big week for the club in the window need to get the leg over before the psr deadline
Interesting because I didn't think much would happen anywhere with the Euros going on.
It felt a bit like the worst time for us to be healthy and others to be in the financial bin because the tournament surely makes many moves hard at present?

If we can make moves in the next week, then brilliant but it's surely not going to be easy.
