... Overall, he's settling in and providing some solidarity and ability to play well generally in possession and gives us options as player who can play either right or left side in the centre...
And, buried in your comment, is the key point - he's new to the league and already looks assured.
Let's hope he's not out for too long.

Yes I was looking forward to seeing how he would cope with Wilf next week.

Martinez posted a picture with him laid out on a sofa. “Recuperate pronto emigo “. So no update really. He was smiling and drinking what looked like a beer.

I am sure he will go on to be as good as Ken McNaught but just like Ken, in his early days, I thought he was very ropey yesterday and against better team and  better set of forward players he would have been in serious trouble. I guess it will take him a little while to settle down.

This is probably the most apt comment on his start so far.  He looks a bit star struck.

Sounds serious. MRI scan pending

Typical, at least we're still fairly well stocked in that area and still have time to bring someone in if needed.

Put it this way, my Dad was at the game where he made his debut for Villa and 45 years on still remembers just how bad he was.

Jeez reminds me of Okore looking decent in his first 3-4 games then walking off v Newcastle and that was his season ended and he wasn't very mobile at all when he came back.

Was hoping it would be like Konsa end of last season, people thought he'd be out for rest of the year but he was back for pre season.

Yet another new signing we make that pretty much gets injured straight away, very very frustrating.

I remember Ugo's debut. Absolute horror show. He turned out OK though.

He was being treated yesterday, got up, screamed in pain then fell back down again.
