Nice to see some actual news regarding Malacia.

The surgery following the pain-killing injections make perfect sense, the quality of his performances dropped off considerably midway through last season.

The fallout from his absence being directed at ten Hag is a little harsh imo. I reckon ten Hag will have already given Alvaro, Williams and Telles assurances regarding their respective next steps and Shaw has for years been pretty robust and fortunate. I think ten Hag, under pressure, gambled a little and it's not paid off - certainly not with the additional problems concerning the solution of Reguilon.

Hopefully, the post-surgery, injury-free, Malacia returns soon as the player who first arrived - a combative, clever player who can again rival Shaw for the starting spot.

Certainly combative, but I haven't seen anything to suggest Malacia is anywhere near being a first-choice player. Just my opinion of course.

i wish him well, ETH wanted him when he managed Ajax and went in for him more than once . Personally I have been underwhelmed by him so far.

I don't rate him, i would rather play Reguilon ahead of him every game.

He was bought as a squad player and god knows we need players back. manager has very few options atm but to put a patched up back 4 out. Got to get to Christmas around top4/ top5 and hopefully kick on with key players back in the second half of the season.

Next 2 CL games are really big for us. A couple of wins will make a big difference and put our destiny in our own hands.

You say patched up back 4 but we finished higher up the table with McGuire and Lindleorf and Mc Fred as 1st choices then we did last season or very likely this season!

You are not going to get a bite out of me. Most of the stuff you post is incoherent. Fred and mc are not defenders.
