Lenny the legs is on track for the hall of fame more than ever if he doesnt depart, although in all likelihood he will. I think hes turned out 23 times already and would be on track to be our first player to turn out in over 40 games a season ( including subs ) 4 times. ( 4 seasons ) pretty amazing but how come? What has Lenny got going for him in this respect?

It seems a tough feat. Over the past 9 seasons only 8 players managed to do it twice, The list is interesting.

Clohessy 92 games in 2 seasons
Francis 88 "
Barratt 86 "
Hurst 86 "
Barker 86 "
Bentley 85 "
Leonard 126 in 3 seasons
and the big surprise, the only forward.....CORR 84

I wonder if at one level its getting harder to achieve as we seem to have less players , irrespective of squad size, who manage to turn out for most of the season. If Coxy can keep going he might make the high numbers two seasons in a row and the Ox and Timmo are also currently on 23 appearances. In the past 3 seasons only 8 have achieved more than 40 appearances ( + subs ) whereas in the past, 5 players a season would more regularly achieve it and that was with large squads of between 34 and 37

Are we a bit more fragile , sheer bad luck? or is it referees ?or sheer intensity. I dont know but would welcome your views?
