AS Roma Season 2017/18

Should or should not, they will happen even to the best athletes.

They are common but I think footballers recover very well now, obviously you can get players trying to force it too quick and rupturing it again but it doesn’t seem to impact players before an after like it would have done done 5-10 years ago and before.

GAA players on the other hand I don’t think recover as well. I have my doubts that a gaelic footballer will ever be the same again after a cruciate rupture.

Level of athlete is largely irrelivant.

Only reason GAA players may not get back as well is available resources.

However on the other hand sometimes GAA players are better looked after than Pro Sports. Its very case by case. I know ohysios who throw out the exact same rehab program to every ACL athlete. That in utself is flawed. Another major issue is surgeons prescribing exercises, bit this is less common these days.

Very often players who were below expected strength levels come back stronger after makor injury because of the rehab and even the enforced lay off where over loading had been a problem


#143

Manolas, Pellegrini, Gonalons and Gerson in for Juan, Strootman, De Rossi and Perotti.

Fantastic counter attack goal from Roma.


#151

Gonalons did superbly with a driving run 1-2 and lovely through ball to Gerson who dispatched brilliantly.

Two great finishes by the Brazilian.


#152

Poor clearance from Manolas nearly costs us.

Great game, end to end.

Cracking header from Simeone.

Great double save from Allison, we’re all over the shop at the back.

Benevento lead Juve at HT.

Juve have levelled in Turin.


#158

Lazio’s clash with Udinese has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.


#159

Perotti for Little Pharaoh.


#160

Pellegrini has not had a great game, few sloppy touches and passes from him.

The Washing Machine will come in for him now.
