New Setback For Vincent-Young
Friday, 5th Feb 2021 08:58
Right-back Kane Vincent-Young will be out of action for a further six weeks having suffered a knee problem in training.
The 24-year-old last played a competitive game for the Blues in October last year with two groin operations ending his 2019/20 campaign early.
The former Colchester man returned in pre-season and was involved in early friendlies before suffering an achilles injury which he was close to getting over.
He was back in full training and was due to play in Wednesday’s planned friendly against Brentford’s B team which was postponed because of a waterlogged pitch.
However, he hyperextended his knee and will now spend a further six weeks on the sidelines.
Luke’s arrival mean we’re not going to see Kane Vincent-Young this season?
“Really gutted for Kane," first-team coach Matt Gill said as he stood in for manager Paul Lambert at this morning's press conference.
“He’s had a little setback in his rehab or returning to play. I’m so disappointed for Kane as he’s worked so hard to be back in and amongst it and help the squad and help the team.
“But unfortunately he’s had a bit of a setback. These things do happen when you’ve been out for a while and you’ve not played games regularly, you can pick up these little setbacks.
“I’m just really disappointed for Kane because he’s obviously a very good player when he’s playing but he’s also a really great lad.”
He added: "Kane’s setback is a knee injury, so separate to his last one. Like I said before, sometimes when you’ve been out a while you pick up these secondary injuries.
"It’s really disappointing for Kane himself let alone us, but for him, he’s worked so hard to get himself in really good shape.
"But knowing the lad, he’ll put it behind him and get on with his rehab and try and get back as quickly as possible."
Asked whether the one-time Tottenham trainee will be out for the season, Gill added: “Currently we’re looking at a few weeks and obviously we’ll take it from there.
“Obviously it takes a little bit of time to get up to speed once you’re back out on the grass. Currently it’s a few weeks and we’ll just have to manage the situation.”
The signing of another right-back, Luke Matheson, late in the afternoon on deadline day gave an indication thatVincent-Young’s long-awaited return may again have been put on hold.
The Londoner made a huge impression having joined from Colchester for £500,000 in August 2019 but managed only nine games before succumbing to his injury problems.

Now we know why we signed Matheson.

Let’s be honest, we all knew this was coming. When we signed Matheson we expected a story saying ‘KVY out for season’. Gutted for the lad, this must be mentally getting to him now.
On another note, our sports science team really needs looking at. Perhaps having our head of sport science working from home in Scotland isn’t working.... not that it was doing a lot better beforehand.

Tom Adeyemi Mark II.
Shame, he made such a difference when in the team.
|rfretwell added 09:06 - Feb 5|
Terrible luck for Kane. Great opportunity for Matheson now and though hes only 18 he seems to be excellent going forward, has boundless energy and infectious enthusiasm. He could really lift the team (assuming he doesn't get injured too!)

So sad for KVY. He made such an impact when he came here. Let's hope he can overcome these set backs and return to action next season. Good luck KVY, stay strong.

Gone beyond a joke our injury situation. Speedy recovery.
|patrickswell added 09:14 - Feb 5|
Send him a college prospectus so he can find a new career. It’s just taking the piss now.
|ringwoodblue added 09:16 - Feb 5|
Poor guy! He has had rotten luck with injuries.
Fingers crossed we seen him back and fit next season.

It's not bad luck - this has happened with too many of our players.

12 weeks he was meant to be out for!!

Ever get the feeling that this club is cursed? Is the training ground built on the site of a plague pit? Wish KVY well, to be fair he isn't missing out on much!
|Muncher added 09:19 - Feb 5|
Phil it wasn't last October that he played his last competitive game, it was the year before that, 2019...
|MonkeyAlan added 09:27 - Feb 5|
Where is Lambert again? Got his puppet standing in yet again. As for KVY, does he actually exist, or is he a figment of out imagination?
|herfie added 09:29 - Feb 5|
Such a pity - really feel for the lad. Must take a significant mental toll. Best wishes for a full and speedy recovery.
Does, however, raise all sorts of questions over the club’s medical/sports science regime - this further setback seemed almost inevitable. Seems as if he’s caught in a cycle of either appalling bad luck or, more worryingly, a fundamental weakness when training/playing at pro level. Seriously hope it’s not the latter.

Who is Kane Vincent-Young?? Is he any good?
|IpswichToon added 09:43 - Feb 5|
I genuinely believe that getting KVY fit was our only shot of promotion this season. We were a different team with him in the side.
|oioihardy added 09:49 - Feb 5|
Ive said it before ill say it again ...
Sack all the medical and sports science team one by one and hire new ones .....
Its a shambles....... we have had this problem for years as soon as the old team are out rhe door youll see improvements once hiring people who kmow what they are doing
|bobble added 09:50 - Feb 5|
bunch of overpaid over haircut-ted wimps who wouldnt know the correct end of a shovel if it was delivered on a silver platter.
i have spent the week hand digging trenches in 37c + temps with b-gger all breeze and no salary.
these blokes dont live in the real world and have never done a real days work in their lives....
i can guarantee you if i was playing for town on a salary of 2-7 grand a week i wouldnt be laughing and joking as l left the pitch after a home loss.

Same old rap from done on here. How does the sports science/medical team have any responsibility for injuries like this? He hyper extended his knee in training. Something that any one of the players could have done. Whether fully fit or otherwise. Just seems to be the kind of luck he is having right now. Hopefully, this will be the last setback for him. Must be awful for him to have been thinking he was close to getting back to playing, for this to happen. But to blame anyone else for this is ridiculous. Just hope hes not gonna turn out to be like , the likes of darren anderton and jack wilshere, just 2 examples, who just cant stay away from injuries, and that he'll come back and have a long run in the team. Hopefully this season, if not next.

No one cares about what you’ve done the past week, and no one cares about shovels so it’s a poor comparison.

Have to give up on this player...never going to get back to doing anything for us
|dirtydingusmagee added 10:07 - Feb 5|
its a shame, feel for the player,but ive said all along people are pinning their hopes on him but i doubt he will play this season . I cant see him playing for us to be honest.Great shame that a player with his skill should be dogged by injuries, but its happened with others, we have Bishop another skillfull player but you cant rely on him being fit long .GOOD LUCK with recovery Kane.
|BcarefulwhatUWish4 added 10:10 - Feb 5|
A really good player and very sorry to hear this. Hope he eventually recovers. Showed a great deal of promise in the games he played for us. Amazing that he's only played 9 times for us.
|ArnieM added 10:10 - Feb 5|
Does anyone know, did KVY have a history of injuries at Col Ewe, before he signed for us ? This is just ridiculous now. He’s not played for the Club in over a year now ....still drawing a salary though I suspect.
|Doug_The_Jug added 10:11 - Feb 5|
Kane Vincent Old by the time we see him again.
