Back for Everton?

Back for Everton?

Glen Johnson could be back within a fortnight after having a scan at Chelsea. The player had suffered a leg injury and it was feared that he would be out for the foreseeable future.

Glen will return to Portsmouth where he will be closely observed. He is thought to miss the Newcastle, Liverpool and Aston Villa match but could return for the home game with Everton on the 9th of December.

'We will have to wait and see if he suffers any reaction but hopefully he will be back much sooner than anticipated, probably inside a fortnight,' said Redknapp.

Thats good news for Glen and gives Harry options again, although i have to say that Noe's holding his own now after getting a few 90 minutes under his belt, so i'm not too bothered if Glen takes a while to heal to perfection. If Noe can keep on building on what he is achieving now, we can all see why Harry rated him as highly as he did back in January. Play up Pompey

he does well against the lower teams

He was feared to be out until chrimbo.

As long as he is ready bring him on. I see Dejan is going to play thru the pain barrier. Bl00dy painful 4 us watching him.

lol storage, your telling me, i dont think it can be used as much of an excuse. watching him just watching the player run passed him was terrifying! if he is finding it hard to run, then stop moving up the pitch so much! i dunno! newcastle match should be good! ... as long as they dont have another water logged pitch! GJ coming back will be good but as already said Noe is doing well. id rather see GJ and matty on to be honest. when was the last time we kept a clean sheet?!?!

West Ham at home was the last time we kept a clean sheet, 6 matches ago. The team have been carring Dejan for far to long now and he has more than once cost us a couple of goals. Hurry up Matty get better and match fit the squad need you. January will hopefully be the start of Dejan on the bench once a new LB has been purchased

maybe covering for ds gives matty the headaches?

An early return for GJ is fantastic news
22/11/2006 22:08:00
Since i have been saying the same thing i cant disagree with Storagematt re DJ. Or Admin re Noe, he's turning in to a good second choice but not yet up to taking on the lol ;-) Adie boothroyds other big boys". it's good news for GJ but he will take a game or two to get back to form.

GJ keeps doing this doesn't he. He picks up injuries we didn't really know about that are meant to keep him out long term then he makes a "quick" recovery. If he's ready then it will be good to have him back, in the meantime Noe has being doing well...about time...
