Based on this, deila says there are no injuries. But we already know isi is unable to play ok Thurs. What's concerning is how he talks about some players like tinnerholm and maxi not playing much in preseason games but won't mention of they're injured in some way.

Tinnerholm is gonna need fitness to play the way he does. Same with maxi. I'm not sure I'd deila is being secretive about injuries or if he's going overboard with the fitness and injury management.

New training video doesn't have maxi, Anton, isi, or parks... Perhaps that injury tweet was true..

Really hope they're all good to go for Thursday
Could just be me, but I haven't seen GMS pop up in any of the recent preseason videos or photos....... could he be nursing an injury too?

Half the team hasn't appeared on the preseason videos. Does it mean they are injured? who knows. I don't think so, could just be the team is deciding to highlight certain people and not others for whatever reason...

there goes "i'm not gonna change anything right away..."

really sounds like he's tinkering :/
His most recent media call was played on Blue City Radio this week (of the voices I could recognize, Mike Anderer of BCR obviously, Glenn Crooks etc., among others) I was actually intrigued by his pragmatism. Unlike maybe some early moments with Vieira where it was super rigid, Deila seems flexible. Both because he’s only been with the team a very short time, and there’s been so much inconsistency in player minutes during preseason because of international duty and call-ups. He wants to put out the best XI possible for Leg 1 but I also think he wants to be careful about risking injuries. So if he doesn’t have the personnel to play a preferred formation or style, I think he’ll go with what works based on availability.

Also reading between the lines, I thought it means we might not see Maxi on Thursday
