"...and he may be coming into the best years of his career" 08:11 - Jul 25 with 891 viewsCotty

I love David McGoldrick. By far our most talented and entertaining player over recent years, but surely nobody who knows anything about him could say this of him? His agent has done a good job there...

I really hope he does. He deserves a clear run at a season.

He may be. Likely highest salary he has ever earned, shorter commute and only having to play 15 games a year. Doesn't sound all bad.....sounds like a pretty good year to me.....

I’ll probably get abuse for this but Didz appears to be available when we have big matches or are involved in some excitement, like play off runs. His injury issues seemed to crop up when there was little to play for. It may just be that he was the reason we were up the table but I have at times questioned how bothered he was to be available for the battle to finish 14th.

To be fair to him I hope he does go on to do it for his sake.

Hes put up with a fair bit of stick from people over the last couple years, even from MM suggesting its his long drives back home that have contributed to the injury.

If he does stay fit for the season I think that will confirm that either the players simply weren't fit enough under MM or the training wasn't suitable and caused far too many injuries to our players over the last 3-4 years.

As much as I was suspicious that something going on at the club was at the root of all the long term injuries, I have to say that Didz staying fit somewhere else won't confirm anything one way or the other.

In the 38 games in which ALB played in goal for us, we averaged 1.53 points per game which, had they been over the course of a single season, would have seen us challenging for the play offs. This at a time when we were otherwise struggling against relegation. Oh, and didn't Mick Mills have terrific posture.

if you were mcgoldrick, a very very gifted player, would you bust a gut to play in a mick McCarthy defend until you die 0-0?
I wouldn't have had any desire to try and be fit for that

That’s how it came across. In a way I can’t blame him. His flair and ability was stifled under mick. Looked great in flashes but the team should be built around players like him, assuming they can stay fit. Even when he first signed and had a good run of games it wasn’t and Mcgoldrick tried to do things out of nothing.

Bit of a leap there but yes let's decide that was what McGoldrick was thinking.

So he chose to get injured in the second half of the 2014-15 season, when we were on a run to the POs?
And if memory serves, at the time he got his injury, we were a viable candidate for the top two.

Pretty obvious really that having signed for us under McCarthy, signed new contracts whilst McCarthy was still in charge and the left the club after McCarthy left, that he didn’t want to play for McCarthy

Just like when we were at the top of the table in 2014/15

And near the top of the table last year

And doing ok early on in other seasons

Maybe, and I’m going out on a limb here, but maybe he just happened to be a bit injury prone?

Yeah he probably deliberately got that massive painful hole in his groin so he wouldn't have to play at Rotherham.
