Wigan Athletic striker Charlie Wyke will not be available for selection for the immediate future.

 

The 28-year-old collapsed during training in the build up to Latics’ Sky Bet League One match at Cambridge United and, after receiving treatment from the Club’s medical staff, Charlie was taken to hospital where he continues to be monitored.

 

We are pleased to say Charlie is in a stable condition and is in communication with his family, hospital staff and the Club’s medical team.

 

Charlie will continue to be monitored closely by an independent medical consultant and the Club’s medical staff over the next few days.

Wigan Athletic Chief Executive, Mal Brannigan, said:

 

“First and foremost, the absolute priority for everyone associated with Wigan Athletic is Charlie’s health and wellbeing and providing support to him and his family.

 

“As a Club, we would like to place on record our sincere appreciation to all of the staff within the NHS who, within what we know are challenging times, were excellent in their response and subsequent care for Charlie, working together with our medical team.

 

“Clearly this news will cause alarm, though we would politely request that the privacy of Charlie and his family is respected. At the appropriate time, we will look to provide further updates to our supporters.”

Well, it's either Covid-19 related or something else footballers have started taking over the last 18 months. 

 

It's not vaccine related; most footballers aren't having it apparently. 

 

I'm not sure who has the authority to compare the lifestyles of John Fleck and Charlie Wyke, but it might throw up some possible answers.

If it was lifestyle related we would have been having consistent number of cases throughout the years - not a significant spike now

 

Also i'm not sure what the vaccine uptake is in footballers - but it doesn't need to be generally high - the vaccine status of those suffering these rare events need to be established - and also whether they have had covid or not

 

These are unprecedented times

I said in a previous thread.

 

High performance athletes are at such a physical level, all the supplements and energy products are putting too much strain on the hearts.

 

That’s from the mouth of a cardiologist I had a conversation with a few years ago who predicted that energy drinks will have a confound effect on this current generation of sportsmen

I'm starting to think it's covid related. Not the vaccine but I wonder if long covid or just having had it is adding a strain, we know athletes push their bodies to the limits.

 

we have no idea whether this is related or a coincidence but I guess medical professionals will already be looking at long term affects.

 

Fleck tested positive in the summer  so it does make you wonder

Depends what you mean by energy drinks - footballers by and large supplement but not so much with the caffeine/RB type drinks in my experience

 

The higher intensity forms a much higher duration of matches now (and has done for around a decade) than it did in the 90's granted

 

I just think it's too coincidental for there to suddenly be a raft of cases in regard to something that has been around for a long time - especially when a novel virus that has cardiac and other systemic problems as a known sequelae is newly on the scene

 

I'd imagine the sports medicine community is in overdrive trying to find the links - whatever they may be
