Higuains mystery ailment...

Recommended Posts

In the late hours of 29th March 2009, the Argentine striker Gonzalo Gerardo Higuain was struck down with a mystery ailment. The medical specialists of Soccer Manager namely a Dr Quincy M.E. had been puzzled for literal minutes in a daze of medical pandemonium in a bid to diagnose his condition, but unfortunately they were useless tools and could only muster a pathetic reason for an injury. Even Higuain himself is puzzled, my chest he cried falling to the ground in a spiral of confusion, whats wrong with me? Will I ever again flex my pectorals in a blaze of arrogant masculinity?!?! Only time will tell if Gonzalo will ever recover from this horrifically debilitating mystery condition.

a Chest injury - 4 weeks (back approx 25 April 2009)

I wouldn't say 4 weeks is too bad for a chest injury, he may have really bruised it or something, it must be painful. :o:rolleyes:

Re: Higuains mystery ailment...

I don't know how these lengths of time are calculated. I don't know where SM get their information from, because these lengths of time out seem pretty ridiculous for the pettyness of the injuries. Maybe they should add the ability for managers to deal with injuries simply; option to give an injection or something like that with a risk of worsening the injury.

I think most people know that the lengths of time aren't really very realistic... well maybe for the majority of players, perhaps not Michael Owen, but everyone knows his bones are made of cadburys crunchies and Ledley King with a knee made from dairylea.

Re: Higuains mystery ailment...

There are two points here:

1. The type of injury and length of injury often don't appear to tally. A broken hand, out for 7 weeks? Ever heard of plaster casts?

2. Many people feel that the injuries are just too long. I recently took over a Man Utd team in a custom setup 1 game into the season, to find Rooney was out for the entire season due to a ridiculous injury sustained in the first game.

The easiest way to sort out the first problem mentioned here is simple. Just change the name of the injury! If a player is going to be out for 7 weeks, I'd much rather it be because of a pulled groin muscle, or torn hamstring, rather than a fractured hand!

The answer to my second point is harder, as I know that some people are happy with the length of injuries as it is.

I suppose I would be happier if I had some element of control over recovery times. I know it sounds cheesy, but why can't I send a player to a "Knee specialist" etc, to take a couple of turns/weeks off the recovery time?

Small gripe, love the game
