Season 2012/13 Injury Thread

Recommended Posts

If previous seasons are anything to go by we'll probably have loads of these again ::)


Obvious one first up Clark Robertson as he is still carrying the injury from last season.

Next up is Niall McGinn who was away for a x-ray yesterday and misses tonight's game at Elgin

If i were a betting man, my pick for next man down would be Pawlett

I would have thought this only strengthens the case for Brown to sign a striker. I fully expected to see a few more loan signings (i'm not discrediting the club for who they've brought in so far).



ABERDEEN have been hit by a double injury blow with front men Niall McGinn and Rory Fallon facing several weeks on the sidelines.


But the Dons won’t be offering former attacker Darren Mackie a short-term deal as cover.


McGinn suffered ankle ligament damage against Ross County at the weekend and faces up to two months out while Fallon is likely to be absent for a month after tearing a stomach muscle.


Mackie is still without a club after being released by the Dons at the end of last season but the Pittodrie club shot down suggestions of a return.


Boss Craig Brown will give others such as Michael Paton and Josh Magennis their chance rather than seek new recruits.


He said: “It is a huge blow to lose two strikers.


“Niall looks like he has damaged ligaments but Rory should be back a bit sooner although he is out of our game at St Johnstone this weekend.”

This also is true. Different shades of shite but there looked to be a lot more happening after Magennis came on.


I've always thought this, but he has no end product whatsoever.  I am still genuinely disappointed that he was retained at AFC. If we're relying on him to get goals, we may as well give up and watch table tennis.


I really hope Brown sees this and addresses this situation.  He's got the first bit right about signing a player that can create, now he needs to address the bit that we were (are) monumentally shite at. Scoring.

Craig Brown this afternoon gave redweb an update on the injury situation at Pittodrie.


Defender Gary Naysmith will be sent for a scan on his hamstring following the injury he picked up in yesterday's game against Hearts.


Rob Milsom is further injury worry for the manager as he seeks advice on his recurring knee problem from a specialist. It is still too early to assess the extent of the injury but Craig confirmed it will be a reasonable length of time before the midfielder returns to action.


There is, however, some positive news as Stephen Hughes has responded well to treatment on his hamstring and is likely to be considered for this weekend's game against St Mirren at Pittodrie.


Niall McGinn is continuing to make good progress and has returned to light training meanwhile long term absentee Clark Robertson is now fit and alongside Jamie Masson is back in contention.

thank fuck robertson's back as naysmith is out. other than consi i can't think of anyone who wouldn't shift goals at LB.


Really don't like the idea of Anderson or Ozzie at RB though. Ozzie's hamstring last year, Naysmith's this year. Just asking for trouble having them there. always a risk we have to take with naysmith but unlike RB, we have a promising youngster there.
