Nick Pope: "on track" for return before end of season (Hope)

This one is so vary odd that he would try and go out with the injured for rest of season post and then the next day we’re told he’s close. It’s just very poor.

I'm presuming he can at least do some fitness work, while he builds his shoulder back up, which should save some time.

 

As soon as that shoulder has had some workload testing, he should be good to go.

 

Controlling and passing a ball might be possible?

Only let him play if he is really healed. Do not want him to dislocate it again and miss the start of next season.

Dont know if it just was that they hadn't been in the drills during the week, but finded it positive that Hall and Livra was on the bench yesterday after their injuries. Maybe we are starting to learn and take a more cautious approach.. or was it just beaceuse they were kids [emoji38]

100%. But I suppose you can look at the injury two ways. 
 

It is concerning that it’s the same shoulder he has done again. 
 

It is positive that he’s gone 5-6 seasons with no issues with it and that he’s supposedly on track to return within a similar time frame. 
 

I think he would still be a net positive return on Dubravka. But my concern would be more about him being rusty than the injury itself.
 

His touch and passing is hardly good at the best of times :lol: plus knowing when to stick or twist with coming out is a split second decision. It must be hard to gauge when you’ve been out a while and not match sharp.

Literally can't be worse than having a keeper who is seemingly stuck in knee deep mud at all times.

was just remembering how good he was against Milan in the San Siro

 

what a pity he missed out on the return 

 

would be fitting if he made his comeback against Man U after being injured in the reverse 


Dortmund away, for me. Didn’t matter in the end. But he made 3-4 outrageous saves and managed to make them look fairly routine.
