Reo-Coker Set To Do Hokey-Cokey Again?

Reo-Coker Set To Do Hokey-Cokey Again?

An article today by James Nursey in The Mirror suggests that Nigel Reo-Coker could be due back from injury way ahead of schedule.

The Hokey-Cokey was meant to be out for up to 3 months but the 25-year-old midfielder is apparently due to re-start training if a specialist gives him the green light next week.

NRC running

James has good contacts so I'd certainly think this is possible. The last time NRC played was v Blackburn in the FA Cup 3rd round. I know he is a marmite player, people seem to love or hate him but he is an extra body and has got some bite.

Will he get back in the team now though? Is Fabian Delph firmly ahead of him in the 3rd choice pecking order?

NRC goal celeb

Must admit, I would be surprised if Hokey-Cokey doesn't move on this summer, his career is stalling with the lack of first team action and he can't be happy being on the bench all the time, he certainly isn't happy when he gets a chance and then is always the first to be subbed, his face says a thousand words as he walks to the bench!

I think he's a great player but MON seems to sign players then never use them - Beye, Harewood, Maloney to name a few. Reo-Cokehead is dedicated, works his socks off and can pass the ball well enough (if he gets a run of games) but because he only plays the odd few minutes he can't seem to find his rhythm or consistency. Its a shame, so for his sake I hope he gets a good move and a bit of luck.

There is something about NRC that I like but cant put my finger on it. Not in a gay way you understand but I would be sorry to see him go. He can never be faulted for his workrate, energy, passion or commitment its just when it comes to passing and contributing to the team going forward that he falls down and that is obviously a vital ingrediant in a midfielders play. Would rather see Sidwell depart than NRC if 1 had to go to balance the books. If MON used the squad he put together a bit more then he could keep everyone happy and they would all play enough games.

unlike the other in your list Mikey Reo was also very expensive so should have been and still should be given a run of games in a 451 formation with Delph in the middle and drop Petrov - sorry still not convinced by him (Don't shout at me!!!)

Martin buys players who when brought, improve the team. But the logic in letting them go if he doesn't like them doesn't always make sense. For example: selling the Ginger Ninja or hokey coker before we have replaced them on the bench would succeed In only 1 thing.. Strengthening the teams around us. Coker at fulham or sidwell at stoke, just creates stronger opposition. Martin needs to hold onto these players, at least until we can pull far enough away from the chasing pack, in terms of SQUAD quality. for players like coker and sidwell not to come back and bite us in the rear after we sell them. It's a very fine balancing act. I just wish more people understood that patience is the key to sustained success.
