Yes, he got injured in training last week.
****, has he recovered yet??? We need him tomorrow night
Nah, Vincent Crane will sort it for us.
Feel for the kid, what a **** time for him to get injured! The Northern Irish Cafu didn't do bad though
We must retain this guy and I think he might possibly give Kiko a run for hid money next season as despite Kiko's great season he isn't getting any younger and is beginning to look a little injury prone.
He will hope to get more chances!
Probably expected to this season.
Good job today against our old pal from South London! Could he be making an argument to be our starting RB? Honestly, for all Kiko's good relationship with Sarr, I've always rated Ngakia a much better defender, so I wouldn't mind seeing him get a go!
Was good tonight. Zaha had him on toast in the friendly a few weeks ago, but this time Ngakia played him much better. Sure Zaha beat him a couple of times, but not in dangerous areas, plus he is probably one of the toughest opponents anyone faces for a right back. He can be pleased how he played and will certainly come back into Xisco's reckoning in future team selections.
Did well against Palace/Zaha in the week by all accounts and did well when he came on today up against Bergwijn and Son. Good burst of pace and cross late on in the came going forward as well. He also had a number of good early season performances last season which some people bizarrely almost seem to want to forget.
Definitely not good enough though and should be left to rot in the under 23's rather than given a chance to grow as a footballer and in confidence.
Xisco has been very cautious with Sierralta and Rose with their far from ideal preparation for this season, Ngakia and Kiko were both injured at the end of last season, I'd imagine they are both being eased back
Not his biggest fan but what sort of a cretyn picks Cathcart at RB ahead of him. Mental
C retin is a swearword now apparently. Just lol
Seen posters claim in today’s match thread he’s good going forwards but suspect defensively.
Am I in a parallel universe here? Every time I see him it’s the opposite. Great when defending but can’t pass a ball.
Exactly this. Co-comms on the stream I watched (Tony Gale?) nailed it. Excellent defensively, lacks confidence on the ball. I'm sure that will come with game time, and he'll develop into a very decent PL full back
Gonna go somewhere down the middle and say he's a tidy passer, yet not in the same league as Kiko in terms of levels of threat, and good, yet raw at defending
He's still only 20 and has played barely 30 first team games. He's got a lot of learning to do but I'd rather he did it by playing games than have Cathcart at right back.
Settlement with West Ham agreed.
No idea how much and guess we’ll never know !.
"A club insider told Claret and Hugh “He’s not torn down trees for them, but might still turn out good, we didn’t want to leave him us”"
We don't want to leave him us either.
Do West Ham have any more talented youngsters for us to ruin?
Less than a million quid, which is something of a steal! Can't wait to sell him to QPR for £500,000!
Under a million is a great result. We could easily make that back in loan fees.
Still a better defender than Femenia. As soon as Kiko gets back in the team you’ll all see.
Happy 21st birthday Jezza!
A real non important game tonight for guys,to get game time not great defending by jezza for the 1st goal
