Challobah

Is it just me or is there something strange going on with Challobah? He was available as sub for some weeks but now nowhere near match day squad, have I missed something?
OK so Cleverly and Hughes back are probably less fragile and so have jumped ahead of him, but it's gone very quite lately.
Has he had a set back again??? -

He had a major knee injury. Near catastrophic. It wouldn't be a shock for it to take a full season to get back to 100% physically and mentally. Very common in these situations for the player to take a long time to trust the leg - both consciously and subconsciously. So even if he's 100% sound physically, he's likely not lpaying as freely as he did before. That's what it seems when he's out there to me.. just a bit tentative.

I thought Derek Payne was hinting at something else on 3CR last night, my impression was he was wondering if the effort is there. Might be very wrong.

What he really needs are some Reserve/Under 23s but we never seem to play any.

BTW What happened to Jamaat ….just not in the squad or injured?

I always suspected it would take all season to get Challobah back close to his previous levels of fitness, but I wonder if that messing around getting injured with the England camp was far too soon in his rehab ? My guess is that he felt fit enough by the Summer, but then feels that every bit of contact is likely to take him out ? There's clearly an issue, maybe more confidence than anything else, but I hope they are keeping him in the right frame of mind - it took Cathcart nearly two years to get over his knee issues and that didn't entail a smashed knee-kick !
