Any news on his injury? Would like to see him get a run out in pre season

According to Lambert he's in training and should play a part against Walsall. It was a video interview so unfortunately I don't have a source to show you.

Oh don't tell me it was that waste of space AVTV that you heard it on?!? That disgrace of a service....

I bet you he's absolutely gutted to score an OG. 

 

Anybody would, but it was an unlucky mistake. Played well I think, made some decent challenges and seems very composed in his play.

 

Hopefully when his fitness levels are 100% we'll see him play even better, he and Vlaar could be a good combination.

Has the potential to be an absolute beast at the back for us. Some decent challenges and very strong.

I'd probably still give Baker the nod for next week. Arsenal away isn't the easiest game to make your debut and he probably still needs a few games to get up to speed after his injury.

I think you underestimate Okore. He is a very good defender and despite the OG, I'd say less accident prone than Baker, who's not bad himself.

I think it's a bit unfair on Baker if Okore goes straight into the first 11.

Baker had a great second half of the season last year, and at times looked like our best defender.

Okore looked ok today, but much too early to judge him. In general our defence looked dodgy to be honest.

I like Okore and think he looks accomplished on the ball. I think he will do very well for us and the own goal was juat unfortunate. The problem with that goal was that the cross should have been stopped at source!

I have a feeling that Lambert will want to play a higher line too, especially with the pace of Okore and Luna. Lambert might feel that is better than sitting back on top of Guzan and inevitably caving in!

High line defending is a terrible idea. If thats his plan then its shit
