Angelo Ogbonna still hasn’t fully recovered from injury but the club is expecting him to be fit for the first game against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Friday June 18.
The Italian central defender has returned to training and despite posting pictures of himself on Instagram was described to CandH this morning as being close to, but not fully, fit.
Our insider revealed: “It wasn’t a serious knock and wHopes high for expect him to be fit for the start of the season.”
Oggy- probably front runner for Hammer of the Year – was one of those who missed training when the players returned to Rush Green
He and Aaron Creswell were both reported to be suffering problems whilst Michail Antonio was also absent.
All three are now back in full training as the club gears up towards the season’s return on June 17 when David Moyes is expected to have a fully fit squad at his disposal.
How do you know the wolves game is on the Friday? I haven’t seen any fixture dates at all yet? Do you have dates for the other games??
Here are the fixtures Pbo. Got it wrong we are on Friday 19th
Thanks Hugh but unless I am missing something, that link just says the games are June 19-21? I can’t see where it confirms we are on the Friday as opposed to the Saturday or Sunday. Just wondered if you had inside information on when the official dates were?
I read we are on the Friday night bud 8pm 19th
I think that like the play-offs this season’s relegation (apart probably for Norwich) will be a lottery – and part of it will be injuries – the short “pre-season” will no doubt result in a number of muscle injuries – and these could be crucial among the teams trying to avoid relegation
Let us hope that we are lucky
