He won’t be back until the end of February, coupled with the CB situation it will no longer matter at that point as we will all be just praying for the seasons end.

Yeah, I was told today we'll be lucky to see him in February. In fact there's supposedly a worry it's much worse than originally thought.  Hoping that's bullshit, but I've no reason to suspect it it.

This is ridiculous. What exactly is wrong with him? Has he broken a leg? Getting sick of these long-term injuries to key players.

He has knee ligament issues, his leg isn't out of the brace yet. A break would like be easier and quicker.

I think the club and Jurgen have downplayed it because it didn't make any sense playing him against those cloggers around the time Jurgen was on the tv more than Philip Schofield moaning about having no rest. Also, as a general rule we are as medically forthcoming as the Chinese Covid Deflection Unit.

Interesting piece in the Athletic today. Apparently the early fear over Jota’s injury was that he would be out for the season. 
 

Fucking hell, imagine the reaction if we lost him for the season after playing in a dead rubber against those Danish cloggers. Thank fuck he’s due back in a few weeks.

There's got to be other players out there who improve our front three for sure. Hope we get a couple of them in summer.

I genuinely believe the Jota injury is THE biggest thing that has happened this season.

 

Even after Virgil went down, we were going OK and Jota was absolutely flying.

 

He stays fit, rotating through the front 3, and suddenly Bob, Mo and Mane are fresher, and our forward links up have more variety/less predictability.

 

I reckon we'd be maybe 10 points better off, and still in it.

 

It was mind boggling playing a player/new signing in the form he was in, in a glorified friendly in Jutland.

What's worse is we kept him on after the injury

Yep - Jurgen's biggest mistake of the season by a long way, all the more so because the risk was so obvious.

    • You must mean big league because there aren't many bigger clubs around than his current team 
    • His stats for stealing a fucking living are absolutely sky-high.
    • the more i watch of thiago is he looks a slightly less mobile version of gini. i know everyone says thiago's passing is great, but i am convinced that's just because he plays no look passes, i don't see any benefit over what gini contributes. maybe i am wrong, but i reckon we got thiago as gini's replacement, but we were able to fund it early by selling brewster and using lallana's wages and if barca had bid enough for gini, we'd have snatched their hands off. thank fuck they didn't. no way he's here next year though sadly. let's hope we get someone to add value using gini's wages - fuck knows where the fee will come from. 
    • I think you're right but I wish you weren't.    I don't  get why the club paid what it did for Thiago along with his wages yet not sort out a deal for Gini when there's very little age difference and he's already on the books.   He's a cracking player Gini, fit,  reliable and hard working. It doesn't make sense to me that he hasn't been offered a deal.   Because of his importance to the team, as far as I'm concerned,  it's a no brainer.
    • I've said I think if VVD stayed fit, this wouldn't be the problem it is.    As for this complete drop off, it has coincided with playing Henderson in defence and his place going to thiago - if I recall correctly Henderson's 1st game at centre back was Southampton, which was thiago's 1st start and this was our 1st defeat of the run we've had this year. That was the point our midfield stopped, except for the brief support it got from milner, when we actually picked up some points. So we dipped off when we 1st lost VVD, but the collapse went once we doubled down on destroying the midfield to support the defence. However, that didn't need to happen. We could have gone out and found someone and got it all signed and sealed like we did with VVD 3 years previous and he was ready to go. Once they waited till Gomez got injured, then everyone in the market place would fuck us. But it didn't take a genius to see he'd get injured, it's what he does.   It's massively bad planning. Going into the season the risk with vvd was there to see. We should have had plans in place in case this happened. We didn't need to act on it, but it's basic common sense if you're taking a gamble is you protect your position if it goes wrong. It shouldn't have taken both Gomez and Matip to get injured to see a reaction.    As for you comment about a rebuild - well we clearly need one soon as it's an aging squad. Assuming the players come back from injury at the level they were at before, I say carragher is right and we need 3 right through the spine. 2 of them should just be replacements for origi and Gini. The only one net new should be at centre back - and while unlikely, perhaps he's already at the club.
