Winning is not enough
Our counter is just not the same without Son who’s probably the best at that. So the opposition can attack more freely and aggressively without him.

Son sprints over 20 times per game with or without the ball, dragging defenders away for others and containing the opposition deep. Kane sprinted 3 times today, which may explain us only having 2 shots in the whole game and conceding 3 goals (and yes, we only had 10 players for the last 30 mins or so).
How did you get your hands on Kane's sprint stats?

Son is our best/most important player and has been for the last 3 years.
Our loss to Dinamo in Europa without him and getting dominated by CP just proves this even more.
It's clear as day.
He's one of the few players who always looked absolutely miserable when we lost any cup game, many of our other players looked like they couldn't give a fuck when we get knocked out of yet another FA cup.

Thought Nuno said we would be getting a club statement on Son?

I'm now hearing he is 50/50 for the Chelsea game. What's going on? I don't like it when the club is this quiet on a player, it usually means long term and they are trying to soften the blow.

It's always uncomfortable not knowing; but be it Poch/Nuno style non-comment or Jose style 'hahaha fooled you' after projecting the worst; we never really know until they hit the field again.

Even when the club used to put injury info on their website it was always unreliable as hell.

Agreed, its just Nuno saying there would be a club statement in his presser at the weekend that has me more worried than usual.

Nuno don't give a fuck in pressers.....

Reckon he's happy to chat any old shit to cut them off.

The difference between him In the media and him when talking to Spurs interviewers is night and day.

.....Good for him. The miraculous thing is he still has a nice guy rep in the media despite mugging them off each week.

......Skills.
 
Yeah....we're pretty much going to struggle badly without Son, our best/most important player
He does so much for this team and helps mask our clear flaws
He's also the only player on the squad that can grab the game by the scruff of the neck and win it for us
We'd have seen different results against CP and Rennes with Son
 


If given the choice, should we rush and risk him for Chavs or save him for The Scum?

Save him for sure.

The chances we beat Chelsea with him are slim to none. The worst case scenario is that we play him too early and then his injury becomes long term.

I would say there is almost no reason to play him against Chelsea unless he is 100% healthy and ready to play.
