James Garner is back on the grass at Finch Farm as he continues his recovery from a back injury that has sidelined him since before the break for the World Cup.

The young midfielder, a summer acquistion from Manchester United, has resumed light training with a targeted return of early February.

Ah well he'll be like the new signing we're all desperate for.

Haven't seen enough of him to know whether he'd be an improvement on what we have at the moment. Anybody have an opinion either way?

He is a live wire and will give us a spark, no pun intended even though it says he is doing light work.

Deserves a run ahead of Iwobi.

Is this the player Lampard signed and hasn't yet started?

It can only help us if he can get fit!
A good footballer and hard worker too!

Apparently good at set pieces so should start purely based on that as everyone else is woeful

I have admired this lad for a while now, and on his loan spell at Forest he was, I believe ' Player of the Year '. Unfortunate that when he was fit, Frank didn't play him, nothing new there, but I believe this lad, assuming we have very few incomings, can possibly be a revelation, if allowed to play.

Someone else commented a week or so ago that back injuries usually occur in the gym. A black mark against our strength coach, whoever he is.

Ed @ 10, well it isn't Samson, most probably Delilah, who by all accounts, spent more time on her back, so therefore not incurring any injuries ! 🤔😜

What is his best position? Attacking midfield? Is he strong enough for the Premier League? Could he score a goal or two for us? He looks tidy on the ball and might link well with Onana in driving the team up the field. While his performance in the league cup at Bournemouth was mediocre that was in an unfamiliar line-up. We can only hope he will be a player who will make a difference in the second half of the season. Somebody needs to.

Could be argued that he was knackered when Man Utd duped us (again!)

Another Man U reject..But hopefully he can get fit..Anything is better than some of the play we are seeing.

Tell Frank to play the kids.

Any news about when he's back playing?

Still hoping this lad can be that significant creative spark that every successful team needs. Sooner rather than later is essential!
