Delph crocked

Just as it seems things might have been picking up, with some positive contract talks, so it transpires that Delph is probably out for the everton game and could be out for a month, even possibly requiring surgery after an innocuous fall in training.

I give up, we must be jinxed.
And as much as I don’t rate Delph in the England bracket just yet, if he does miss games, you just watch how much we miss him when he doesn’t play.

It could be a big loss this one and if he had to be injured, I’d have wished it was a month back, as opposed to now.

Gutted, is probably the best description for what I’m feeling at the moment, as although Everton is a tough game, it’s one where I think we might get something.
Something that might lead us to push on in the next games against weaker teams that are to follow.

As much as some of us don’t rate Delph, I believe he makes us tick in the middle.
Now who’s going to replace him?

Cole is the only one I can think of, but he’s a different type of player, who would seem to have shown nothing to the management up to now.
Likewise Gardner, who would be my next shout.

How about giving Bacuna a run out in the position he actually prefers?
I don’t know, in all honesty.

Very little threat up front combined with a weakened midfield doesn’t bode well.

We need someone to step up, big time.

    Losing Delph this term is not as big a miss as last season would have been. Even without Gardener we do have enough cover in mid field. Our major problems (cover wise) are still in defence and up top.

      Hitchen 60, lacking a goal getter, been with us for years, our front 5 are crap. I’m not on the band wagon yet with Grealish, only because club not showing us his protentinal talent people say he’s got. yet to be convicted.
