'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fulham - Hodgson Hails Medical Staff

In the run up to our away tie on Teeside, a game in which we only have 2 injury doubts, our gaffer has taken his time to praise his back room staff on the job they do at keeping the players at peak fitness.

It is fair to say we don't have the biggest squad in the league, and we lack depth, yet we have had a fantastic season so far. This is down to a number of things, but a consistent starting 11 and a lack of injuries has been crucial to our good form.

Roy had made this point clear, and wanted to praise his staff for the super work they have been carrying out over the course of the season. The physios take their time to work individually with players, ensuring their training regime will not be altered because of niggling injuries, a tactic which has worked to great effect, and has given some stunning result.

Roy commented,

"They've done their work, and kept the players fit, without really impacting on how we want to work in training."

Roy stated that his staff were doing a brilliant job, working with individuals day in-day out to keep their fitness levels at a pristine standard.

I think it's about time the staff were applauded and noticed for the hard and brilliant work they put in. Without it, I have a feeling we wouldn't be 8th at the moment!

true, but you make your own luck, as the very least partially... the minor knocks have not escalated to anything major... kudos to the staff...
