    Looks like he went down , got back up , walked off then got told to go back on.


    Must have been after they used all their subs as he didn’t go off .

    Do clubs get any compensation when a player is injured on International Duty? If not they should :mad:

    I'm well pissed off by this, he hasn't played for us for weeks then he makes his comeback from injury for his International team Chile!!! Surely we could have refused to let him go as he was lacking match fitness, or is that not the case and were we obliged to?

    Having on the bench v Arsenal probably made it look like he was fit .

    He wants to play for Chile and why shouldn’t he? He had a storming season last year and so for the club seems to prefer dreadful Cathcart to him. No wonder he wants some action. I don’t blame him.

    Ffs, he’ll be out for a while then.

    Why was he allowed to go when he’s just missed our last few games with a hamstring injury?!
  12. wfc4ever

    wfc4ever First Team Captain

    Probably because we did that before and he kicked off ?

    Because as others have said, he very likely wants to play for his country. And with a World Cup coming up and him being withdrawn (rather unhappily) from a previous international window, he probably wants to fight for his international starting place.

    Also, after the agreement clubs came to with FIFA, I don’t think clubs can withdraw players anymore - a player must be inspected by (or liaise with) his international medical team before an agreement to release from the squad is made.

    Injuries happen on international duty - it’s fu*king frustrating this one due to him being one of our better CB’s - but I don’t blame Chile for the injury….it’s the keeping him on when he asked to come off that just terrible from them.

    But let’s face it, he would have only been on the bench at best anyway.

    Yeah but our moronic support basically think that Watford is the bestest and our players have to be dragged over hot coals to play for their football-mad countries in order to play in a major tournament and hopefully get a bigger club move.

    AFCON is going to be hilarious amongst our fanbase.

    Depends on how many games he misses and how serious the injury turns out to be. What would the situation be if WFC complained to FIFA about Chile knowingly risking causing more serious damage to him by refusing to take him off?

    100% certain FIFA wouldn’t care.

    Also suspect Sierralta wouldn’t want his club at loggerheads with his national team in a World Cup year.

    I want to sack off my day job to watch Netflix or go for a run. Doubt I’d be allowed though.

    If the place that regulates your companies working conditions makes that allowance, then by all means do that.

    Out for 2 more weeks according to the Watford Observer.

    Not too bad considering Sierralta described himself as "broken".

    He's quite lucky to miss getting embarrassed by City and Chelsea. Even if we play really well, they will put 3 or 4 past us.

    No, if it's at all true/accurate (which with our medical team and reportage is far from a given) then indeed, it's not too bad.

    At the same time, it might be nice for one of our theoretically first-choice pairing to be able to develop some actual match fitness ever, ready for some games we might actually have a chance in, and similarly develop any kind of understanding or relationship at all with the other of our theoretical first-choice pairing.

    Without getting into further endless arguments about what the Pozzo can or cannot and will or will not afford, it's starting to seem like a new/further reason to consider it prudent to bring in another centre back in January might just be the injury-prone nature of El Gaucho.
