It doesn’t make for very good reading does it?
And there’s a little bit of me that is awfully suspicious, purely because of the wording of the whole thing. Almost makes me feel like they’re covering something else up (just my view though).
Speaking ahead of tonight’s match against Charlton Athletic, caretaker head coach Steve Spooner said that defenders Jake Clarke-Slater and Kristian Pedersen will both miss the game with groin injuries, both of them whilst playing long balls by the sounds of things.
With Blues already down to the bare bones as it is, forcing academy graduate Nico Gordon forced to start the game against Stoke City and a change in formation to boot, we really are going to have to stay in this division the hard way given what we’re dealing with.
Do the players need to take some blame for the situation we're in?
And this news didn’t exactly go down well with Blues fans on social media, indeed there were a few who came up with their own conspiracy theories.
Can see why we're so effective going forwards when two of our defensive players have injured themselves by… pinging long balls in training.

That's them two not wanting to play then and off in the summer, should just say it 👍🏼

Amazing how many players pick up injuries when you're in a relegation scrap

Hard not to be cynical at this point

Can’t take anything that comes out of the club seriously any more, shambles
