The only player I think we have failed a medical for in the las30 years was Gavin Gunning (think it was him), who failed his medical, promptly signed for Birmingham, and after 2 games he promptly fell to pieces and missed the entire season.

Definitely Dodged the bullet then ? ......

Didn't Boyd play for 15 years without injury until he came to us .

Carlos non training methods scuppered anybody who used to be fit.

I believe Jim Magilton failed his medical at Hillsborough but we signed him anyway. 

 

Ironically I don't recall him missing many games through injury!

I think there was more to Abdi than physical injuries. 

 

Something went off there. 

 

All very odd. 

 

It must have because what I saw of him he was quality.

Plus it was rumoured the surface at the training ground wasn't helping.

MG every player that crosses the white line is prone to injury. each injury carries a multiplier effect. A little like a car once the head comes off the likelihood of the head coming off again increases exponentially. Time to weigh in and cut your losses ! 

 

Problem is fans, like car owners develop an attachment. The mistake only dawns on you once you are pounds out of pocket.

Not forgetting ‘Ironsides who wasn’t allowed to take corners to save his legs.

 

And Jim Holton wasn’t fit when we signed him either was he?

Our medical consists of watching a player being able to walk from his car into the training ground. If he manages that, then we sign him. 

That's way too stringent mate..

Players turn up with a doctor's note and say I've been put on panel for 2 weeks...

I'll be back after that..

All very strange.

 

Watford fans loved him.

 

Played 32 times in the Prem.

 

Nothing in his career to suggest he was a bad egg, unprofessional etc.

 

And then he came to us. Wonder if one day we will find out the truth.

Heard James Herriot had a good look at Big Dave, Winnall and Rhodes. Strange considering his familiarity with cows arses, he didn’t spot any of them couldn’t hit one with a banjo.

Sure there’s been times where players fail the medical and clubs still sign them. Plus we knew about Hutchinson before signing him with him nearly retiring at Chelsea.
