He's never going to be the same player is he? He's started games, come on as sub and has consistently looked spectacularly nervous. I suspect his passing stats since returning will show that he's given the ball away as much as to his own teammates. Not a criticism of him - I can't begin to think how difficult it must be to overcome the mental scars of such a horrible injury. Completely different level (and injury) obviously but when I broke my leg many years ago, I was physically recovered in 9 months but it took probably 3 years to recover mentally to the point that I was able to throw myself into tackles. (Interestingly enough the turning point was surviving a rather tasty "reducer" from a nasty piece of work a few years later - perhaps big Troy needs to do Nathan a favour by ploughing into him in training...) All very sad given that - for a few weeks at the end of Summer 2017, he looked like a real player. Aside from anything else, back then he was a nailed on starter alongside Doucoure but he now sits behind Doucoure, Capoue, Hughes, Cleverley and Quina in the pecking order and is facing the prospect of Wilmot overtaking him as well.
