No point risking him if he's not 100%

Steve Bruce always seemed to make out that injuries were worse than they actually were.  Would say that somebody is out for months with "a nasty one" then they'd turn up like a spring chicken the next week.  Complete opposite with Smith, little injuries with the player expected to be back for the next game then somehow turn into the player being out for weeks.

Hopefully he can make the bench at least


With Wolves lining up with 3 at the back and Moutinho and Neves not being the quickest they'll be plenty of space between midfield and defence so think he'd thrive against them.

Wolves fans think Neves is better than SJM ? The only player I'd like from their team is Jimenez. Maybe Doherty ?

That was bone spurs wasnt it? Basically one kick away, potentially, from a terrible fracture.

This is muscular, although calves can be tricky. I have the same fears but live in hope.

At least this time Nkamaba, McGinn and Dougie are three good quality players to step in.

In an interview with WM yesterday, Dean Smith said it was a kick on his calf rather than a pull or tear. 

He’s playing more as a wide player now so Trezeguet and El Ghazi are the replacements, with no real back up to them which is a bit of an issue really,

Shin splints perhaps? Cam had that and was out for a month.

Shin splints is what Jack had before when Smith was first appointed and was out for a few months following the Baggies game.

There has to be a link between this tendency to miss a decent chunk of every season and his fouls won stats. We wear it like a badge of honour, and it’s great banter and all that, but there has to be a consequence for his body.

Jack only 50-50 for Sunday. Sounds doubtful as he hasn't trained so far this week. Typical if he misses the dogheads game!
I watched the club video of training and couldn't see our Jack.
He was being marked by Tyrone.

What are the chances of a proper update, seeing as our chances of staying up are so obviously entirely reliant on him?

It would be good to get some realistic information on his injury, as well Heaton and Engels. We’ll struggle if those three are all out for any amount of time

Neves was decent today.

We won't know until kick off as always with Grealish injuries we are told one thing and then weeks later the total opposite appears to be true.

Sterling dropped from England squad after a fall out with Gomez. Grealish would have been a certainty to be picked if he was fit! 🙁

If you want an update on his expected return date you could always try the Meaning Evil which usually has a degree from the university of the flaming obvious when they quote expected return date ‘not known’.
