Says his still a long ways away from playing.. Not very specific and no estimate.. Perhaps sometime soon after the new year..
Just in time to play the hero by helping keep them in the EPL.
I hope that's what they have in mind-- I don't want him rushed back and hurt again.
I think Gibbs is good enough to turn a couple of draws into wins and a couple of losses into draws. That may be enough to keep them up, if nothing else falls apart.
This news is music to my ears. For Cory and the Nats.
Get out there soon Gibbs, everyone needs ya!
I hope Gibbs takes it easy for awhile since he has time to rest now (he's not in a race to get fit for any major tournament). If he's ready by December, i hope he takes the extra month(s) to wait to make sure that he's 100%.
He expects a December return to playing:
GIBBS CONFIDENT OF DECEMBER DEBUT
Importasntly, he aslo might take part in some upsoming reserve matches. If he good to go by Dec. I'll be elated. I would love to see him command the backline for Charlton and help pull them into the sAfety zone. Their defense has been shaky, though its been better recently but they could still use Cory asap!
Am I the only one who is a bit concerned that he may be pressed into service without adequate time to get up to speed by Charltons terrible form this season?
I'd rather they were in a comfortable position right now...
Point well-taken, nothing more onerous in pro sports than seeing athletes "forced" back to work before their bodies are ready. Gibbs has already suffered two serious knee injuries. The fine line between performance and being considered "damaged goods" is worth weighing on the side of caution IMO.
There been numerous ststements by Charlton's management, Gibb's and his agent that he's taking him time and no one is pressing him. Plus, the reserve games going to serve him well. Charlton went out on a limb and signed him despite injury and I don't think they would throw him by the weigh side or throw him to the sharks without being 100% healthy!
