If only we were as lucky as Spurs who hardly get any injuries.

None of our players have had a full preseason
Seems we start our season in October after our players have got a bit fitter by being run around in Aug & Sept.

Re: Collins injured
This morning Lanzini was apparently a possibility for tomorrow's bench, now he might be back after the international break.
We've just had an international break haven't we?

Collins can't be old at all. After all, a "sprained ankle" is something you only get aged 12 when you can't be arsed to play rugby at school in -4 tempertures. #PrayersForPele

"I have always seen Ogbonna as being quite calm on the ball and he doesn't panic when he gets the ball in tight situations. Just plays his way out."


He has a calm and gentle face.........don't be fooled Russ.

To be fair, he often does look assured, and often does a good job laying it off to wing backs or wingers, but he just as often seems a bag of nerves to me.

Could be worse mate. As we know, after he eventually returns, people on here will bemoan the fact that 'he hasn't had a full pre-season'.

It's usually a line reserved for Carroll.

I reckon the US will invade N.Korea AFTER THE INTERNATIONAL BREAK.

Re: Collins injured
Yeah it looks like a more serious problem with Lanzini and we clearly rushed him back initially.

That's a big blow with him not available for Spurs. So potentially were looking at a return date of just under a month for Burnley away if it's going to be after the next international break now.

''we are looking at him (Lanzini) being available again after the next international break”


Ah, the old 'after the international break' line which has become SO POPULAR in modern day football. I reckon one day we will reach world peace after THE INTERNATIONAL BREAK.

One minute Lanzini is ready for Fulham at home, possibly Spuds, then today it's he could be a sub tomorrow, but now it's AFTER THE INTERNATIONAL BREAK.Which one is it??

Amazing isn't it. I have seen the bloke play and I would say absolutely the opposite.

Ogbonna, for me, is not as good at straight up defending. I think he loses his way slightly and I would much prefer Reid, Fonte or Collins for that element.

And I have always seen Ogbonna as being quite calm on the ball and he doesn't panic when he gets the ball in tight situations. Just plays his way out.

Just goes to show how football divides opinions.

James Collins has been handed a boost with the news that the ankle injury he suffered in Saturday’s 0-0 draw at West Bromwich Albion is not as serious as originally feared.

The Wales international was forced off 13 minutes into the second half at The Hawthorns, after picking up the knock just before half-time and attempting to carry on.

Collins left the stadium on crutches but a scan this morning has revealed only a sprain and the 34-year-old is likely to be back in action within two to three weeks.

Head of Medical Services Gary Lewin said: “It’s good news for James in the sense that it is not long-term or as serious as it perhaps looked at the time.

“He is the type of player who will run through brick walls for you and will be desperate to get back as quickly as he can, but we will manage him very carefully and ensure he returns when the time is right.”

Lewin also revealed further good news on the injury front, with captain Mark Noble recovered from a minor knee problem and Edimilson Fernandes and Manuel Lanzini both making good progress.

“Mark has returned to full training and is available for selection tomorrow,” he said. “Edimilson is progressing well following the ankle sprain he suffered on international duty with Switzerland, and should resume full training in the next few days.

“Manuel Lanzini is a bit further away but still on schedule in terms of his rehabilitation from the knee injury that he irritated up at Newcastle last month.

“He is back on the training pitches and working hard, and we are looking at him being available again after the next international break.”

Re: Collins injured
Ogbonna seems best when defending, racing along with an attacker, sticking a foot in, but when he's in possession he turns into a complete liability when being pressed. He often seems panic stricken, and dithers before passing.

I like the bloke, and he gave me one of my best memories with that last minute cup goal against Liverpool in 2016, but he often makes me nervous when he plays, and I suspect Bilic feels similar.

Re: Collins injured
I thought Ogbonna was our best CB?

Russ of the BML 3:17 Mon Sep 18
Re: Collins injured
Ogbonna would be perfect for a back three as he is good on the ball and offers decent distribution.
