Good to see him back in action.  Really feel for him as he was doing well for us, and has now returned to see that even when fit he'll be very much number two behind Martinez.

It showed real ambition to originally pay for Tom, i think £8mil for a 33 year old, then see him crocked and pay a further £20m for Martinez knowing full well that the wages paid out to Steer and Kalinic would be pretty much wasted when Tom was fit again.

Would have been easier to persevere with what we had and save the pennies

I think these guys are deadly serious.

Who else has a good GK team as us?

we need rid of one of thenm in Januaruy, especially if the wages couldf go on another forward, as I'm not sure Wesley is going to feature much this season.

Iím sure ,Iíve recently seen a film on instagram ofWesley running ,and kicking a ball which would suggest all things being well he will be back be the end of next month.

His latest video which I think was posted in the last week or two is of him training (at Bodymoor I think) with coaches, receiving the ball, running to training dummies, then shooting into small training nets.  All promising, but he may still be a way off being involved with proper contact with other players, then building up actual match fitness, which is obviously when he'll be closer to playing an actual game.  My completely wild guess is we'll see him in January at some point.

I might have imagined this, but I think the Ďinjuryí feature they did on C&B podcast, the injury stat nerd from Newcastle said likely Jan return for Wes- given the nature of the injury and thereís no immediate pressure  (I.e a current injury to Watkins) for him to return.

It would be good to have him involved at the end of December when there's more games on.
