Not sure how many people noticed, but he had a massive protective boot on his foot last night (during the lap of appreciation). So more ops and treatment by the looks of things.

He'll be a great addition to the squad if he can get back to a decent level of fitness. It is a worry though.

It could be with the end of the season coming, they've taken a slightly longer-term approach to his recovery.  It's been about 6 weeks since Unai confirmed he was out for the season, so it's surprising to see him still in a boot if it's genuinely a metatarsal, but maybe he had a pin inserted at the end of March to hold it in place while it healed, and that has recently been removed necessitating a boot for a while?

It's all very suspect, and though I have no doubt the club won't be issuing any updated on him before pre-season, it would be nice to see him out on the grass when everyone reports back.

I'm pretty confident this is the case, after 2 setbacks they've probably just decided to take the time and be much more careful with it, he's had a really rough year but I'd be surprised if he isn't back involved in pre-season and desperate to make up for the lost time.

He must be gutted with this season, he was our best player by the end of last season and was absolutely flying.

I reckon he'll come back like a monster next season.

I can see it being the same with Buendia, Moreno and Mings.

He was still flying in the Euros as well until the thug hacked him down.

Do you think JJ would go all Roy Keane on him if they're ever on the same pitch again?

Yep, all of them seem like the sort of personalities that will be determined to come back stronger., that attitude is all through the squad and has been a big part of why we've improved so luch since slippy got the boot.

I'd assume we're not selling him this summer then.

Who would want to buy him until they know he is match fit?

But we might still do that as Rogers seems to be fitting into that role and I can't see both on the pitch at the same time unless one plays as a striker.

We're going to need 2 quality players per position. If Ramsey can get fit, we would have that with him and Rogers.

Assuming we get CL I think we have a minimum of 48 games next season even if we go out of every cup at the first hurdle.  If we get in the top 24 (out of 36) in the CL, that's at least 2 more games.  Even just getting through a couple of rounds in the domestic cups and we're looking at well over 50 games again.  Hopefully that will be enough to keep players like Rogers and Ramsey interested.

I agree, I don't want to sell him if he is fit and back to his 22/23 form. But stating Rogers seems so much like him I wonder if the sell Ramsey for the PSR boost is actually a plan from the club.

He is a massive asset and has age on his side. Broken bones aren't the same as soft muscle damage - and should hopefully heal if they have got it right this time.

As has been said, with upwards of 55 games we need two quality options in every position.

We need a squad next season, and back-up of their quality is exactly what is required.
