Alec Foster

Post by Mysterio » Fri Jul 31, 2020 7:36 pm

Is there anyone in the know on this kid? Is he fit? Is his career in danger?

He looked outstanding for us a while ago and I’d love to see him hit his straps and take over from Cookie as our impact bench forward if Cook is leaving

Shame if he's not ready to go must have had a setback told me he was nearly ready that was back in March!

Agree, on his day he’s a great player to have in the squad. However, wasted if always injured

There speaks a bloke who wakes up some mornings feeling like I do, hips shot,shouders shagged and knees that creak like a rusty gate,went on far too long (Shouldnt have started according to some) And the saddest bit of all is when you get one of those sunny winter Sunday mornings and for half a second you just think...

Ditto.

I’ve just gone over on my knee having already had an ACL reconstruction at 29, & having already had 5 (10 in total) ops on both knees already

Saddest thing of all is al I did was roll off the sofa and I’ve torn my meniscus again. Tragic thing is no more medical insurance and relying on nhs. At least I’ll bein in 2 weeks as urgent

Is he really injured.?
Seen a picture of him in training.
Not one l accessed as l am not good with the social media.
So let's not consign him to the scrapheap.

No, but he's more versatile than them all and that makes him an asset, not only that, but he is a genuinely good player also.

If cookie is being let go based on fitness concerns, when he potentially could do another 2 years for me, I’d expect foster to follow soon out of the door.

Unless the sum of injuries repairs equals a long run injury free..in which case it would be fair to tell the fans, and get word out for fozzy himself that’s he not made of porcelain
