      AOC comes across as an absolutely top class guy and I was completely gutted for him when he got his injury. However (controversial point of view alert, those of a sensitive disposition turn away now) I think how good he was last season and how important he could be to us going forward is slightly over stated. When he came into the team about this time last year I felt he could have good games like against Citeh but other ones where you didn’t notice him. I think absence can make the heart grow fonder and if we’re building him up to be more than he was last season that’s going to do him no good when he gets back to playing....

      It’s a fair shout, not expecting him to take Salahs spot, but the idea of having him and Shaq as “2nd choice” is a very exciting. It’s just more quality to come in to the squad when we need to push on.

      He brought something that we currently don't really have a lot of, and that is power past opponents and/or rocket one from outside the box. He brings a certain brawn to our midfield that complements this team. I still don't see how he makes any meaningful impact this season, anyways. Even after he's fit to play it'll be a while before he's in-form again.

      It's funny how you can misjudge a player, and I was certainly guilty of that.

      It's also very noticeable the difference between what Klopp has got out of him and what Wenger got out of him.

      Did he play that high up the pitch? I thought he was part of the midfield 3?

      Give him a run out in the final few minutes of the CL final when we are leading by 3 goals against Real Madrid, having already won the league in mid April. :-)

      Could be in full training end of Feb/March.  https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/46704025

      Potentially a massive boost in the last furlong!

      Even if it's just for the last montg, could be very important.

      Hope Ox recovers fast, so that can score some important goals for us, this season.

      I hate to crush your hopes but Ox won't be a factor this season. He'll need at least 10 games to get it back. Remember how long it took Lallana? And Adam's injury was cake to Ox'.

      Hope the leg injury hasn't affected his tenacity, his pace.

      Can't wait to see the lad back to be fair.
