Bagged a pair again for Rangers............albeit Scotland, do we have a recall on him ?
Welbeck is due back in a couple of weeks so even if we did recall him, he'd be fourth or fifth choice striker and would get very limited minutes if at all.
Duffus and O Mahony wouldn't have had opportunities on the bench . The best thing for him and us (and perhaps the price with which we sell him ) is playing regularly for Rangers and scoring for them. (SEE ALSO UNDAV)

I'll wager heavily we don't get welbeck back on the pitch in a couple of weeks.

Welbeck will play 3 games and then be out for the season again. We need to stop ignoring certain players terrible fitness records when it comes to calculating squad depth.

I was worried last summer that the squad would not be big enough for Europe and though the numbers seem respectable of those players capable of playing at PL and EL level, we have 4 or 5 players whose injury record is such that they could not be totally relied upon, which then puts pressure on others to play more. Yes, we have had stinking luck with Solly and Enciso as well, for example, but that we would inevitably have in addition one or two out at any point was also predictable.

If Welbeck had been fit - then almost certainly Pedro, Ferguson and Ansu Fati would have had fewer minutes. Sima and Undav would have been even fewer - no good for their development or eventually our back balance when we probably cash in .
And Welbeck missed virtually no games in the 18 months leading up this injury - ie since his op . Wager away obviously but the Welbeck naysayers have come a cropper far more times than him since he was signed.

Until this current injury, which has kept him out for 5 league games, Danny Welbeck missed 7 league games out of the previous 70. Hardly the sign of a player with a terrible fitness record. Since his return from surgery which pretty much saved his career he’s been one of the most available players in the squad.

Didn’t know this re Welbeck - where’s that timeframe from?

Don’t let your facts get in the way of the myths about the likes of Welbeck that football fans have 🤣
