    I hope upon hope he can regain his old self, because I agree, he is full-on captain material. Kane is a good skipper too though.But Dier always felt like he'd be a skipper for us. Here's hoping he is ready to get playing regularly again, and isn't "broken".

    I was listening to [[[Gooner]]] Per Mertesacker on the Graham Hunter podcast yesterday. It was interesting stuff.
    One thing he said was that every player needs a break, particularly if you play Euros/World Cup during the summer.
    He said one year he hardly had a break, thought that he could 'go again' and as he jogged onto the pitch to warm up in pre-season, his knee just went scrzzlak and he was out for a couple of months.
    It was his body saying "nope" even though his mind wanted to go again. Sounds like Dier after his England heroics.

    My thoughts as well, i have been banging the drum for him to be our captain for a while now and i do believe he is made for the job.

    We also miss his drive from our M/F and i hope he is over his health problems and return into our team soon.

    I think Poch doesn't like or want on-field captains... And see himself as a spiritual one through his system

    He was not on for long last night but showed that he may be over the problems ( illness) that have troubled him for a while. It would be great to see him back in CM.

    Not perfect by any stretch tonight, but solid enough and got the clean sheet.

    He's got something about him that we lack, a precense if you will. Hope he's over his troubbles and gets back to his best. He's a leader we've sorely been missing.

    Maybe he can be the Toby replacement with his penchant for long balls to the forwards

    Could not agree more on that point, for me he deserves to keep his place at CB against Sheff Utd. He is a very good player and his attitude is first class.

    For me, that double block before Gazzas fantastic save was the best moment of the match.

    He played like someone with something to prove imo. Very pleasantly surprised.

    He seemed to move well when he needed to which is a massive plus because he will be a great asset to do some of the ‘basics’ a few of our players haven’t been doing.
    Centre back does seem to be the opportunity for him, especially if we can get Jan to stay on for a couple of years and mentor him (still think Naybet bought King up a level even though style wise they are the inverse of Dier and Verts!

    Great news that he thinks he's over it.

    Was a good read, clears things up what was going on with him - we have been missing him fully fit badly.

    I googled for possible complications of appendix removal.
    • Bleeding

    • Wound infection

    • Infection and redness and swelling (inflammation) of the belly that can occur if the appendix bursts during surgery (peritonitis)

    • Blocked bowels

    • Injury to nearby organs


      If bowel related, perhaps not someone you’d want to talk about maybe...

      Totally guessing of course.

    400% this.
    He always looks like he'll stand up to anything and you're gonna have to walk thru him first if you wanna bring any sh.it to our team.

    I just watched it again and the commentator says Dier even though it’s Foyth. Well done Juan in that case!
