Hello!

On the Roster tab, it appears George is listed as a midfielder. Can you confirm that's correct? I've only seen him playing defender.

He is a defender. I don't think he has ever played midfield ever, maybe in U5s.

He is definitely a defender I really love all the errors on the website. It just makes me feel all warm and cozy to know there is so much detail going into the site (Marketing rant over).

Does anyone know his expected return is? I remember seeing something about April? I really loved this pick up and I hope that he can make a full recovery.

I've heard May or April. Thing to remember is that he hasn't played for almost 18 months and it was a bad injury even if he recovers by April he will take a few months to get back into shape. If it's even possible.

Anyone hear anything on GJ yet? I haven't even heard reports of him doing light exercises yet and it's been close to 10 months since he went under the knife.

Yeah I would be shocked if we see hm this year. In fact I'm 50/50 if he just retires before ever playing for NYCFC.

was not on last games injury report either

should we expect him to? Isint he completely out of this years season anyway? I dont know much about this guy but from what i read on here he is a good prospect and maybe NT material. Sucks he is out though since we really need something out there on defense.
