Delph And Petrov Both Close To Full Return

Delph And Petrov Both Close To Full Return


Ha, just like two new signings this! (JOKING!)

Great news though as The Official Site have declared that both Stiliyan Petrov and ... wait for it... Fabian Delph are back in full training.

Houllier said: 'The good news is that Fabian seems to be taking part in practically all our sessions, which is a good sign and a good omen. I say practically because sometimes we rest him in between. Stiliyan is back and has been full training last week and this week."

Gerard says it is good news as it gives more competition for places.

However he has admitted the Spurs game on Boxing day will probably be too early for both but he won`t fully rule it out.

then we have massive games after spuds game also, ah well competition for places is a must. our luck is bound to turn around (i hope) given the return of our club captain and a much needed return of Delph who has massive potential.

Problem with Delph is that, he's become twice the player since he was injured. I seem to remember him not scoring and diving in with two feet. Showed some nice range in his passing, but not exactly outstanding.

You've got it there. Considering the little we've seen of him here there seems to be a bit much resting on young Delphs shoulders. He looks to have some quick feet and nice passing but he's got to have the games before we can judge. Downing was in a similar situation after joining us and he had a pretty poor first season. Compare that to a 19 year old who's started 1 (maybe 2) Prem games and is coming back with no pre season and you start to worry if he really is such a big hope for us this season

Never thought Delph was the answer, and always thought of him as one for the future, but seeing as our midfield alternatives are Bannan, Hogg and Herd he'd have to be on an equal footing with them at least even if not with NRC and Petrov
