However, manager Gus Poyet does not want to put a precise timescale on his return.

He told the Argus: "It doesn't need to be in January, it could be in December.

"I won't have a problem if he can play on the 29th or the 22nd. If that was the case it would be great.

"He has been training last week, but with us, I don't know. He has been training more than he was a month ago.

"He has been working on his fitness in different ways, a different programme so that he can get better and maybe join the group.

"He has been doing a bit of everything, strength work, controlled training, running, the new gravity treadmill and plenty of pool exercises which could be really hard but not the same as playing.

"It is a different way of bringing him back to the first team quickly, where he can train and forget about everything. I don't want to put a date on it, because that's not fair."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
