It’s just a very quick one, as we don’t have weekend game and I struggle to see that there’s much to write about, apart from it’s blatantly obvious that Jack Grealish is going to Man Utd.
Except it isn’t to me, but that’s a different subject.
So John McGinn is training, but it’s only tactical stuff and he isn’t allowed any contact sessions.
Yet according to Dean Smith, McGinn will be pushing for the Chelsea game on the 14th.
To my mind this is ridiculous.
How do you go from non-contact to being ready for a game in eight days?
The answer is, you don’t, unless you’re absolutely desperate and are willing to risk a breakdown through coming back to early.
We’re talking about a broken ankle here, after all and while I know medical stuff has moved on rapidly over the last twenty to thirty years, I just think expecting McGinn back that soon is just not realistic.
And even if he does come back, surely he’ll only come on as a sub for a few minutes?
I totally understand that we need McGinn back as soon as possible.
But I wonder how much of the desire is about keeping us up, as opposed to proving that he’s ok, so that we can sell him if we get relegated?
I’m a cynic.
And I hope I’m wrong.
