Oggy update


Angelo Ogbonna will head for a scan tomorrow after leaving the action against Celtic inside five minutes.

Only recently back from a spell on the sidelines, it had been hoped the decision to have him leave the action was a precautionary move but it seems there may be some sort of issue.

We learned earlier this morning that the central defender will have a scan on what may be a damaged hamstring.

The news should only hasten David Moyes’ decision to add a central defender to the squad – a position we learned some tie ago was one of those the boss wanted to fill along with a striker plus of course Jesse Lingard

Issa Diop took over from Oggy very successfully yesterday but should there be a real problem for the Italian then he and Craig Dawson will be our only front line players in that role following Fabian Balbuena’s departure.

  1. I’m sorry we have been playing Russian roulette with our squad for too long and it does border on the negligent. Moyes oversaw an amazing last season but even that could have been better if we’d had slightly more squad depth. There is absolutely no excuse for allowing that to continue and our policy of letting players go without replacements identified and acquired is pure lunacy.

  2. I hear you JW, it’s a delicate balancing act that can go either way for sure.

    Anybody know how Arthur is progressing along with his rehabilitation post surgery.

  3. Alves is ready to step up but needs some game-time to ease in.

    • He’s not ready for either EPL or Europa League, may be play in League Cup but none of the youngsters other than Johnson are ready for the 2 major competitions this season. The quality of opposition we have played in pre season has been abysmal and although very good workouts for confidence building and fitness outside of that there is very little to take away other than we are already in trouble if Oggy has done his Hamstring.
