Last night I must admit having both Bradley and Sarcevic subbed in very quick time and seeing them go off the way they did looked a big worry. Just been looking about the sites to see if I could get some scuttlebutt on what was wrong and the lowdown on recovery time etc. Start with Sarcevic. My son pointed out last night over a beer that he is probably more influential than Bradley and quite possibly would be a bigger miss if he was out long term. He is one of those players that makes things happen and gives space and time to others such as Fox to perform their stuff. When Sarcevic went off last night Fox's game did tail off and his influence wasn't as great. Sarcevic is also one of those box to box types who just seems to keep plugging away and pops up with goals so maybe Son is right. Anyway, it seems there is no long term damage or so Sarcevic was "tweeting". Perhaps the Orient No. 3 wasn't as good at crippling opponents as he thought. Nasty challenge and should have walked for it in my book. Sonny Bradley was apparently carrying a problem before the game. Allegedly it had been previously agreed that if it was a problem he would go down and be subbed rather than let something really nasty happen. Now I'm none too certain exactly what the problem was or if it was going to be anything long term. From the info available, which is a bit sketchy, it doesn't sound like it will be long term so perhaps we can breathe a sigh of relief again. The game changed when we lost both of them and we are a much better outfit with than without. We do not need key players out like last season even if we do have some cover this time.
