Helander - Injury

Helander has always had injury issues with us and it's a shame because he is a quality defender.

If we get the switched on Balogun from the Old Firm then I've not got any worries. If he plays like he did against Malmo then we could be in a bit of bother. Hopefully the big man steps up.

Potentially a chance for Jack Simpson to show what he's about in the domestic games as I'm sure this will mean he'll get a few now. Has a lot of doubters so it's now or never for him, I think.

Hope his recovery goes well. I'm sure I read that we have to option to recall Katic in January which might be useful as he'll have some minutes under his belt by then.

Well an option for later perhaps. I suppose it will depend on where Gerrard wants to strengthen in the new year and the injury situation with the squad.

Big loss early in the season though, hopefully someone will take the challenge and step up.

Would hope we're looking at potential free agents as Simpson as 3rd choice for a minimum of 3 and a half months playing 3 games a week isnt going to end well

Patiently waiting for someone to post the list of them.

Crazy decision to let Katic go and its already biting us on the arse

Going through the next few months with Goldson/Balogun & Simpson as our CBs is shocking management

If Katic was going out then we should've had another in as we all know Simpson isn't good enough & Balogun has fitness issues of his own

Not really, Katic needed to go and play games it’s unfortunate that a CB is out for a while but having Katic wouldn’t have made much difference.

Our EL squad is so unbalanced that we can only register 17 non Scottish players. High possibility that Katic wouldn’t have been in the squad either and if he was, we’d need to drop someone else out. 

Not having one Scottish CB has done us, we should be looking at someone like Soutter on a free in the summer or for buttons in January. Decent enough cover for 4th choice and helps with the homegrown quota.

It's no really and I don't think there was much said about that decision until this injury.

Goldson, Helander, Simpson and Balougun all available for two positions with the back up of Bassey and youth players. Not to mention saving all that money on wages for a full season where he would probably not have played.
