Aguero's Injuries Are far Too Frequent & Worrying

Aguero's Injuries Are far Too Frequent & Worrying

I am a little fed up for want of a better word with Sergio and his hamstring saga. How many times is he going to be out this season??? This is the time we need him most. As well as the limited goals we are managing to scrape without him it seems his absences have had a knock on effect with Negredo (whose he I hear you ask). He just seems to have gone into hiding along with Jovetic and his injury syndrome.  Dzeko seems to have purchased a sat-nav to show him where the back of the net is (looking back at his Hull goal). Again, I find us relying on the likes of Silva, Nasri and Fernandinho to come up with a goal or two. It just isn't right!!
 
I will admit we are extremely patient of Aguero as his time on the pitch earns plaudits and praise but eventually patience has to run out. Yes I know he has scored a vast amount of goals and this adds strength to the 'mess' we find ourselves in when he is not around.
 
I suppose we have gotten used to him being absent but that doesn't necessarily mean we have to like it. 
 
As it stands at the moment my patience with Dzeko has gone way out of the window but last season I have to admit that Dzeko even out scored Aguero - now that is some mean feat plus Dzeko made fewer starts than Aguero!. Then when you look back to December / January, Aguero was out for a month and then when he came back he was then absent for the whole of February and now he is out again. I cannot express how much we need him back and fast. I accept Pellegrini and even Aguero himself has said it isn't serious but please it seems pretty serious to me to be absent for so long.  For something that is seemingly minor has turned out to be something that is extremely major and one illness / injury leads to another ad infinitum.
 
So again, I ask 'how long can we patiently wait for him to come back and start scoring again'?? and as Aguero has extended his contract through to 2017 I don't want this extension to be riddled with hamstring injuries and the like.
 
I don't sound too harsh do I?? but to my way of thinking if you have the likes of Real Madrid begging for his services then if the fitness side of things doesn't drastically improve then I would say sell him to the highest bidder and buy someone else in. He may be able to perform better as there are not so many games to play in La Liga compared to the EPL plus the pressure isn't as bad.
 
Pellegrini has some hard facts to face if Aguero's fitness does not improve because we cant keep going through the pressure of will he wont he play, its just too distressing.
 
I am not purposely having a dig at Aguero as we only have to look at Jovetic, his injury syndrome is as frustrating as Aguero's and neither Dzeko nor Negredo are half the footballer Aguero is but if we want to succeed in any of the Leagues we have to stack that central defence / forwards and that will come at a fine price I guarantee but it will be money well spent if we are to firmly make our mark on either the European Leagues or the English League and if the likes of Real Madrid want to buy him then I would say we should seriously look at the offer, the fitness and the money's worth of Aguero, in fact, all our strikers!!!.
 
Now if per chance Aguero does a Tevez (after his 6 month absence) and barnstorms the league and we win with ease then I shall fall on my sword.

I personally think he has been returned to the fray too soon - twice. The decision to confirm whether a player is fit to play is partly down to the medical/physio staff but also relies upon the player himself. I am sure that the players are measured every which way against benchmark tests which can assist in the decisions before they are given the medical 'all clear' but the player can sometimes not admit when something isn't right and may be desperate to get back for various reasons - desire to play; big game coming up and even 'unspoken' pressure from a manager........ We have had a lot more muscular related injuries this season than last & I do wonder whether there are training/fitness regime issues at play here.

Needs to be brought back slowly and only when he's 100 in the past he was rushed back too soon.

In light of the continued injuries, this is the sort of time when you should mix it up and go with another option. dzeko is a confidence player who needs service, he tends not to create his own opportunities but he CAN finish. So, play him up top, move Toure forward as he's been our main attacking force for the last two months, and bring Milner in to partner Fernandinho. I think Milner has been unfortunate not to get more game time, yet he's rock solid and this two in there would help protect the back four, still be mobile to get forward, and Nasri, Silva and Toure can all interchange bringing Kolarov and Zaba in to service Dzeko. That's still one heck of a side!

i agree Skoorb...the injuries we have had of late are massive. aguero is awesome but to me he is so finely tuned the slightest knock or over extended stretch means trouble. i imagine this time out is making him anxious etc and despite my article maybe sounding harsh i would hate to lose aguero. i also agree with comments regarding dzeko, you either love him or hate him i tolerate him ha ha because he does step up when we need him and the look on his face v Hull was lovely he seemed so happy to end his drought of no goals. I also agree with the ;brining aguero back to soon' syndrome. i think Mr P did and this is the end result. i hope we can hold it together till the end of the league and stay in the top four and negredo comes out of hiding and dzeko gets confidence and jovetic scores a hat trick......lol. its not good for the health being a city fan but it sure as hell keeps you on your toes :)
