Confirming what we already mostly knew

The fallout from Tuesday's Capital One Cup game continues. We talked yesterday about what we had heard as far as Theo and Ox's injury, but today, we get little bit official word from Le Boss about it:

Nothing has changed since after the game. They are out but the scans are today - it's 48 hours afterwards. We hope they are light injuries, but they are out until after the international break.

So, there you have it. Three weeks. Ish. Which means, also according to the boss, that the right side of the park will be patrolled by...Joel Campbell and Alex Iwobi. Sayeth the man when asked who will play on the right:

Campbell and Alex Iwobi. Santi can play there as well but he has become very important centrally. The problem sometimes is that you can destroy two departments if you move one player out. We control the ball better with Santi in the middle.

So there you have it. Three weeks of the Joel Campbell Experience. Not optimal, but as I said yesterday, it's waaaaaay too early to hit the panic button. I'm hitting the "I'm not thrilled with this" button, but the panic button is still under that plexiglas dome with a lock on it.
