Hallelujah! Fab’s back

Lukasz Fabianski is back in light training with hopes that he could make a first team return by mid-December.

The Polish international was seen in a video posted by Albian Ajeti saving balls fired from a machine today raising hopes that he is set for a rapid return.

We immediately checked with our own sources and learned that a mid December return is a genuine possibility.

We were told Fab was making better than expected progress and certainly a December return was on but probably no sooner than the Southampton match on December 14 and more likely the Boxing Day match at Crystal Palace.

It would bring an end to the disastrous Roberto era which probably more than anything else has put Pellegrini’s job under the most serious threat.

A source told us: “It’s great to see him back training – all our fingers are crossed for as early a return as possible.”

  1. Hallelujah!!!!

    • Yes yes yes brilliant news as with Antonio just hope the medical staff don’t rush him as that could be an even bigger disaster. .

  2. I swear I will lose it, if they rush him back and he cant find form, or we lose him for even longer because hes not fully healed.

    We’ve seen good players rushed buck just to add next to nothing many times over the years. Noble is one who jumps to mind in recent times.

  3. Simply irreplaceable. Comfortably in top 3 GK’s in the league. I believe Ederson and Allison are very good with their feet and elite shot stoppers, but Fabianski’s consistency, handling and reliability make him an incredible goalie. A reason he was hammer of the year!

  4. Bardzo Dobrze.Cannot happen quickly enough for me.Will Fab and Antonio save Pelle or has the dye been cast.?

  5. It still doesn’t detract from the atrocious lack of plan b and tactics from our appalling manager. Get rid now and BEG Howe to come. If we get Moyes or Hughton the revolution against the board will be broad for lack of ambition…..again.

  6. Will his return make Anderson try and Haller run? Will we suddenly pay attention to the opposition strengths and learn to move for a thrown on? Our problems run far far deeper.

  7. It would be a mistake to use this as the excuse to save Pellegrini. The goalie is a crucial part of the team, but if you are depending on him for your results-& let’s face it, on reflection that was last year’s story-you are in trouble. It is a joke if a manager can keep be kept in his job by the keeper (whose job the manager does not have much impact on). But I wouldn’t rule out the owners using this as their excuse to avoid admitting to their mistake in appointing -and over paying-Pellegrini. Get him out now.

  8. Ah sweeeet mystery of life at last Ive found you

  9. Hammer 64 total agreen my sentiments exactly. .he was obviously brilliant last season and this until. his very unfortunate injury at Bournemouth ..but it just exposes the mentality of ous squad. Loose a key member and we are shagged
