      We now know exactly why the club had to act so quickly when the extent of his injury became clear.

      Also no chance of seeing Fab in midfield this season.

      At least Wijnaldum has made that number 6 his own now.

      Big fan of Joel's ability but sadly not a long term plan.  I might be wrong but think he may have played his final game for us.

      Hope he makes a full recovery and the time off helps with any other issues he has been having.

      Sorry for Joel, really like him and think is an amazing player but playing in the PL is clearly not for him with his physical issues.

      I also think he played his last game for Liverpool but I think it'll be the best for both if he goes to play at an easier, less physical league.

      Yep and only revealed once our business was done.

      Still not sure why we left it til the last day of the window. We lost a lot of poibts since Jan 1st and these lads will need bedding in.

      Still we have our depth and in a few weeks time they will be ready to play. Lots of hard work on the training ground now learning to play with each other.

      Yea, not having Kabak and Davies against Southampton, United and Burnley is the reason we scored a combined zero goals against them.

      Actually it could be a big factor, because if we had them in defence for some of those games it would have allowed Hendo and Fab to play in midfield. Not guaranteeing a win but it certainly would have increased the chances.

      We have now scored 6 without either in the miffield though in 2 games

      Photo on the official site  of him running outside during training yesterday. Not expecting him back this season but hopefully he is making good progress

      But how long will he last, unfortunately not fit enough to command a regular place
