      I don't get it. He plays again (even if without contact) which means he must be able to run (to build endurance & speed) for weeks. Why then the forecast for April? The dude looks like he needs 2 more weeks and then 2-3 weeks of games already (10-25 min. to get into rhythm again).

      Great to see Ox back in training, certainly give the side a boost, at such a critical stage of the season.

      He will be a great addition to the squad when he is fit but lets just hope he is fit and healthy for the pre season and beyond

      I agree with you, if he's able to jump about and run then surely its just about fitness and that surely can't take 8 weeks? Perhaps its the non contact thing but even that doesn't really make much sense.

      It won't be April. They just don't want to pressure it by saying February or whatever

      If he's back in team training, see the effects that has on him I'd imagine he will be back in a match day squad in the next 2-3 weeks if there is no negative reaction

      If he could give us 10 or 20 mins coming off the bench from March to the end of the season he would be such an asset and a very good option if we need to press forward.

      Awesome. I see him ready for some limited game action in 2 weeks, maybe one month away from being a real factor again if things go well.

      2 weeks and a month?! Haha you must be kidding? He’s only just started to take part in the warm up with the team.

      Maybe you’re the doctor who said I could play as soon as I did after doing my ACL and before it was fully healed back to full strength...only ended up having 2 further surgeries as a result of playing again too soon. So I’m sure Ox, who’s knee essentially exploded will be fine in 2 weeks because you’ve seen a video of him doing a light warm up with the group...

      If he’s back in the time frame you say then I will be very, very surprised.
      Mid April before he makes an appearance IMO. Being ready for full training is different to being ready for match day where the opponent won’t be holding back at all going into a challenge.
      After such a long injury, can’t see Klopp taking any chances.

      But I’m not a doctor and none of us really know what the current situation is.

      just ease him over the rest of the season with some sub appearance when ready just forget about him playing full games. Apart from anything its very unlikely he will find any form after such a long lay off he can treat all of this as a long pre season.

      Doesn’t matter if he makes the number of games to qualify for a medal, the club can request more anyway.

      Few appearances with the U23s so I still don’t think it will be until April we see him.

      Ultimately I think he’d be delighted to make 1 cameo appearance and the club request a medal given he was meant to be out until the early part of next season.

      nor is giving someone a winners medal when they have done f**k all to earn it, sort of similar to Terry getting dressed up in the players kit to lift a trophy, its a bit phony!

      He'll get plenty more winners medals in the years to come anyway ;-)

      yes but 1 minute per game doesn't really mean he contributes much does it? Its still a bit phoney and I don't like stuff like that , I'm the player wouldn't either.

      He contributes ever day he is at Melwood he is I understand hugely popular with everyone there so I reckon most of the lads will be more than happy for him to get a medal as the whole squad will do including Mignolet.

      so should the tea-lady also get a medal then? I mean seriously when it gets to that levels it gets silly. I want him back playing well and contributing to the team but I don't want to shoe horn him with a few minutes here and there just to give him a medal he hasn't really earned, I'm sure he wouldn't want that either.

      As much as we need his creative spark right now, I wouldn't want to rush him back.

      Having him fully fit for the run-in is more important than rushing him back for a few games to bring back that creative spark, it's going to take him a little time to find his rhythm again anyway.

      When he is back though and playing again as cliched as it sounds, it will be like having a new signing.

      You don't have the information Klopp has, nor have you access to his medical records and seen him train everyday, what makes you think he isn't 100% fit? You are just a bloke on the internet making a wild guess.

      Looks like one bloke on the internet knew more than the other bloke on the internet.

      “He has been training with the first-team squad for several weeks – “70% of team training then he leaves a bit early to do something else and the things he needs,” Klopp said last week."
