    He was only expected to be out for a matter of weeks but then our medical team got hold of him..........

    Or

    Maybe he’s a union member and he’s been made fully aware of his entitlement.

    I still can't quite comprehend how **** our medical team is... If they're going to lie to us, they should do it where we'd have forgotten about it. Saying he's back for next week, week after week looks totally tinpot. If they said he will be out for the next two months, we can accept that and move on with the team we know is currently available.

    I wouldn't blame the medical team now. The club have got its act together after an appalling 18 months, which they even admitted to.

    How many injuries have we had this season? Look at the high intensity game we play, and not one player has been injured. Deulofeu's injury was carried over from last season, he had an op and now he's slowly coming back.

    So far, the medical team are doing a much better job.

    I agree with Hb1 on that. apart from Deeney’s broken toes, we’ve been lucky so far this season (touch wood). Just Gerry and Cleverly out. It’s just fun to keep joking about the medical dept

    I agree with HB1. But in saying that, it’s still worrying that they literally cannot put any timeframe at all on Del’s return.

    Surely it's Gracia who is refusing to put a timeframe on it? He's the spokesman and no doubt also influences the urgency/risk taking around return schedules. If he's happy to wait, they presumably wait. Plus, there's sometimes a difference between the way his comments come across on paper and how they actually sound when you watch the press conference vid.

    Where have I suggested any different to what you say? I remember before our first game, he said he would be out for ‘1 day, 2, 3...maybe 5 days’. Weeks later and he’s still saying that. So what I’m saying is that I agree with HB1 and others that we are doing better with injuries. But the situation with Deulofeu is a worry given that they don’t seem to be any further forward with it. It’s not a criticism, it’s a viewpoint.

    I took your 'they' to mean the medical team. If it didn't mean that then fair enough.

    I'm just saying Javi's the front man, his English isn't great and he tends to blather on a bit in answering questions. That said, he said last week that the next step was Deulofeu joining the first team training and he said today he had, so that's slightly further forward.

    As soon as they have worked out what's wrong with him I sure they will !

    They clearly don't have a clue. If they did don't you think they'd tell Gracia. His return has been imminent since the start if the season. It seems far away as ever.

    Looking forward to next seeing Delefeou play ... which will be at his testimonial at The Vic in 2023 when his contract expires .

    Yes, very close now. Closer and closer.

    Only a week or so away now.

    Seven short days-ish.

    We're saying about a week.

    Probably.

    For training at the very least.

    I've just calculated we've paid him £1.7m per minute he's played for us. Staggering.

    Unfortunately, no one passed to him on the left for 10 mins so he had to wander off to the right.

    He took the last corner.

    The only non Holebas set piece?
