    Yeah the only info I've heard on how long Etebo will be out for says he'll be out for 4-5 months. On a more positive note, his surgery was successful, though in true Watford FC fashion, I wouldn't get too excited about seeing him before the end of the season!

  7. Top 10 but not a #1.
    1980 not 70’s
    Otherwise spot on :)

    Yeah, I don't know why I put that - it's a mistake I'll remove it. If anyone does know or finds out what the extent of the injury is then please update. :) Thanks also to @Hogg-DEENEY!!! the info update on Etebo.

    I don’t know how ITK the EPL injury room website is but they said this under Sierralta s entry…

    Oct 05: "A left femoral biceps tear confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging.

    So assuming a tear is about 1 month out wasn’t someone saying ?

    Could be, but this is Watford FC recovery team we are talking about here, the get well quickly area after the hospital treatment. ;)
    That actually sounds really painful though - all the best to him.

    Didn’t even know Kabasele had an injury. Still, good news re. King and Sierralta.

    Much better than expected, especially King. Only three fit centre backs at the club now, one signed today and two only arriving back a couple of days before Liverpool.

    Good luck Claudio.

    Strange that Sierralta is only expected to be out for 3 weeks. I think it will be longer. Hamstrings are always slow to recover from. So we were suddenly down to just two fit CB' It's actually quite funny.

    I've just checked out Nkoulou's injury record, and I'm impressed. He's not missed a single match through injury since March 2015!!. He must look after himself really well.

    So...Sierralta is due to return to light training next week, any estimates for when he might be ready to play again then?

    Kabasele is in the first stage of his rehabilitation, don't know what that means or even exactly what injury it is, but it sounds serious!

    Very easily. I broke and dislocated my knee while also tearing all the ligaments away by simply jumping to head a ball with nobody near me on a perfectly flat pitch.
  27. Well they do say heading a ball is dangerous.

    Annnnd another midfield option bites the dust for x-amount of days, weeks, months (with our medical team) years.
