Injuries over the decades

I been watching Palace for just over 40 years, now I’m sure there must have been worse injuries (numbers of players) in a
Season but I’m struggling to think of the season ?

60 odd years for me, and I don't think we've witnessed a season with so many injuries. With those old leather boots an long studs, plus plenty of cloggers around it may sound surprising. I put it down to the modern game and its physicality and pace. Many of the injuries are ligament injuries caused by studs sticking in the lush turf that most clubs have. Mud heaps were the norm, particulary in winter, which were more forgiving but particularly fun for Jack Edwards and his sliding tackle.

Our Cup Final season in 2016 after New Year was pretty horrendous. Think every player in midfield and up front were out injured at one point or another. Quite a few long term. Think this season beats it though.

The worst I remember was back in 82/83 season with Mullery at the helm. We were so depleted that before one game at home to Carlisle I think, there was talk of our keeper George Wood playing up front. We ended up bringing in two youth players to make their debuts instead.

As it was, Mullery and coach Harry Cripps, both in their 40’s, made themselves available for the reserves as their numbers were down as most of the players were drafted into the first team. Think Cripps actually played.

Players are bigger fitter and more finely honed than in the old days. This applies to all sport. Look how many cricketers break down with injury,this hardly happened in the past.
Mind you medical treatment is better . A torn cartliege was a season if not career ending injury. Now they seem to be back in 6 weeks or less.

Question I always wonder about is what would players like Don Rogers be like if they had to days fitness?

I was wondering last night why the sport now seems to have so many injuries. Maybe my memory is playing tricks but my recollection from the seventies to the nineties is that there was a definitive first eleven and barely two or three other players you really got to know in the entire squad. If a single player was injured in the first team it was considered a bit unlucky and a fully fit first eleven was considered a distinctly normal thing.

I do seem to remember our 97-98 season relegation team seemed to have its midfield ravaged by injuries. We had Edworthy playing there for some games.

But this is a season where injuries seem worse than I can ever remember.

The 1989-90 season was particularly affected by injuries as well. Whilst the squad was not as large as this season's squad, I think that we were down to about 14-15 fit players by the Liverpool semi-final, with Rudi Hedman being on the bench - only 2 subs named and could be used in those days - and Garry Thompson being cup-tied.

97-98 was very bad and we lost Lewington as well which affected the day to day coaching significantly too. Not easy to compare because the squad is much deeper this year.
