Guys I keep hearing artificial surfaces cause injury.
But so does grass.
Tynecastle has grass and Berra is out for the season.

I will say I prefer grass but many leagues do use it. Places like Russian and so forth.

Used by thousands of people on a weekly basis in scotland alone. Let the people who enjoy them use them. The people who don't like them stay at home don't use them. Problem solved. Serial moaners in this country!

Aye Kev and how long have they been playing on them over 15 years? didn't hear anyone moaning about the surface at Spartak when Hartley scored that peach of a header.

It's the lack of a too standard that's issue. Plus Scottish teams no watering them correctly before celtic play. That will cause injurys. Think killie said water was broking when they beat us. If watered correctly like most leagues that use them demand then injurys and playing conditions will be substantially better.

You're correct Madyin, if they type of pitches are heavily watered then there's not a problem with them. Seems to be when we come calling they don't see a bit of water and they become similar to trying to play on a piece of tacky rubber. There should be a ruling that refs should make sure pitch is heavily watered at start and half time to ensure safety to players.

Mally to be honest how often do you hear of a serious injury on one of them?

Over the years we hear of loads of major injuries when studs catch in turf.

Madyin and Stevie are right it's the preparation or lack of watering that makes the modern artifical pitch so dangerous .

In the good old days the head Groundsman and ( his staff if had any ) took great pride on getting the pitch as good as possible . Sometimes in wet weather the pitch looked like a ploughed field at the end of match . However ground staff did their best and wouldn't have left grass so long that ball could hardly run along the ground and be dangerous.

Out of curiosity I wonder what type of stud most pros use on the Astro
The modern bladed stud that is common on most hard ground boot should never be worn on Astro as it restricts movement and often sticks in the ground this is the most common cause. Most boots now come with a small stud that has been developed for ag.

Good point that Markom, each player definitely has to wear different boots to suit each surface. On 2G i wear Puma moudies which have 13 very small studs on each boot. I've seen some people use the traditional old boots with 6 longer screw in studs. personic really. As i said sometimes injuries are down to the person not the surface.

Am sure professional teams will know this lads, most players will have boot deals anyway and their sponsors will most likely supply the right boots for each surface. I would say a pro puts much more effort than us fatties on a Wednesday nite and that would most likely be the cause of more frequent injuries. Speaking for myself when I play 5's it's always in the back of my mind that if I get injured it means no wages. Just ma 2 pennies worth.

Of course it isn't just the increased risk of injury that makes artifical pitches unpopular by most players and teams, it is the irregular run of the ball and different bounce coming off surface . It's a great leveller.

Looking at a pic of him on a stretcher it looks like a bladed sole Nike mercurials firm ground
Not recommended for 4g wonder what they will say to that.
