Not really a surprise, I wasn't expecting any earlier. 

me neither. Not sure where this "worse than originally feared" bit comes from. He was always going to be out for the rest of this season and most likely the start of next so its just a bit of media sensationalism really and not telling us anything we dint already know.  There was maybe an outside chance that he might have been ready for the start of next season, but that was all it ever was. Anyone who thought we might be back before then was either sadly misinformed or wildly optimistic

He is such an awesome person. We are lucky to have players like Ndidi, Tielemans and Ricardo at the club; talented players who are humble and kind.

Ricardo back on the grass?
"He’s still a bit of time away. It’s great for him to be out on the grass these past few days. He’s still a period of four to five weeks away, but we’ll see how that recovery goes."

Team selection will be a headache when RP is back. In some respects id play RP at right back, JJ at left back and Castagne at right wing. It would balance the speed and overlapping play down the wings on the right side together with the left side JJ/HB.

Are you leaving out Under, then?

It seems an easy decision to leave Justin out when Ricardo is back. He's not an awful player but obviously not in the same class as Ricardo or Castagne.

Justin hasnt their age or experience....Lets see how he developes,because isnt that the idea,you Take a Pinch of Experience and Mix it along with the young

investments...

I reckon Justin will turn into a more than decent addition...

Not remotely difficult.  Castagne to the left, Jones to the bench and the FA Cup.

I think Pereira will be effective at LB, he drifts inwards a lot anyway. But Castagne obviously has more experience playing there. It's not something I'd worry about at all, I think Castagne and Pereira on the flanks in any arrangement is a seriously good thing for us.

That was a brain error by myself. Thinking of it though it maybe wouldn't be one of the worst arrangements depending on systems BR may want to resort to as matches progress.

We were told back end October .....no reason to think that’s changed. Maybe a run out in one of the EL games once he’s had a couple of U23 run outs.  Going to make an uninformed guess that his first PL outing will be away at anfield after the next int break ....

Pereira used to play LB sometimes for nice apparently

...how does that work with Ünder in the squad!!!

I am sure Ünder was not brought in to be an impact player, if so it would be a waste. We have waited years for a left footed Right Winger and you are advocating we ignore him in order to incorporate JJ in the team.
