    There's a lot to like about Britt. A positive character with a lot of drive and determination. A quality footballer with great potential.

    He does come across as a very down to earth guy, and doesn't seem to have the, shall we say, attitude of some of our other players.

    Hope we get to see him back in the Garibaldi for many seasons hence.

    My physio, whom I see once a week for work on my new knee, was a member of the physio team for a Premier Rugby Union club a few years ago.
    She was explaining the severity of Britt's injury, which she said he should make a full recovery from, provided he is given time.
    She packed in with the Rugby club because of the pressure to get players back on the pitch before she and the other physios thought the player was ready with, as a consequence, the inevitable recurrence of the injury, and more time on the treatment table and more pressure on the physios to get the player back on his feet.
    Recognize the pattern from our previous injury problems?
    I know that Britt will be getting daily input and the best medical input into his rehabilitation.
    I just hope that the Club recognize the need to allow their £5.5m investment recover fully before trying to get him back on the pitch in competitive games.
    We have him on a 5 year contract, and even if we lose a full year or more, surely the longer term benefits will be best served if he is allowed to recover fully.

    Couldn't agree more. The mentality of trying to get players back on the pitch prematurely seems to have largely left the club along with BD. Think I remember Reidy saying in his Post column not long after his injury that he's not putting a specific timescale on his injury as it really doesn't help recovery.

    You have to wonder how many careers have been ruined by clubs rushing players back from injury. Which begs the question; at what point does the club become liable, or even directly responsible for long-term injuries? Any employment law experts in the house?

    Dougie at least recognises that we've been rushing players back too soon and over-working the crumbly ones on the training ground.

    "I am planning for the likes of Andy Reid and Chris Cohen to be fit for the start of next season. Andy Reid definitely and Chris hopefully, at least. I have had a chat with these players and we have to manage the situation a little bit better, when it comes to when they play and how they train.

    "Modern training is very intense and, possibly, some players will not be able to train at the intensity that is required.

    "If you are training on my training ground, you are going to train with that intensity or you are not. Sometimes it is better not to train, but to keep your energy for Saturday.

    "That is something we will need to manage with Andy and Chris next season."

    One other pointer to this is that many modern players' contracts are more weighted with incentives as to when they actually play; you might get less money when not on the pitch.

    Therefore, is there an argument that financial reasons might also be a contributor?

    Does he go on to say how pleased he is with our league position and his new crutches?

    The first ten games will be Cohen and Reid's pre-season probably. Which is why it's important we don't throw them in consistently. I'd give them both one game a week, even if there's three in a week. Play them in Under 21 games a bit just to ease them back in over the course of the first month.
