Why do our players take so long to recover from injury? Recently I spoke with a renowned expert who told me that recovery timescales in Premier League are recorded to assess medical performance. As this person pointed out, the cost of having highly paid players on the sidelines is astronomical and the drive to get them back is key. As far as I know, recovery figures are not in the public domain but I would love to see how we compare. This 'expert' said he had visited Finch Farm and Everton have all the equipment but nobody knows how to use it. Getting players back quickly gives clubs an edge but we seem to be lagging. Baz Rathbone got the heave ho but who oversees our medical process? Mirallas comes back for a game & is struggling again, Gibson out for months with a groin injury and I dare not mention big Vic. It is an important area but is it one that fans consider?
