    The plain truth is that we have been fed a whole load of chicken feed on this story. His injury is non specific as are his whereabouts for the last four months, as is his progress, or lack of. Like many, I am sure, I doubt that his absence has been due to injury at all? This, his inclusion is academic to the team IMO. His desire to play is not evident and so to lay any hope of his lifting the team to new heights is both unfounded and unwarranted as far as I can see. If he does return, great, but lets not get ahead of ourselves. We have heard all this before. We have other more reading needs in the team than our so called play makers return!
    'His injury has been non-specific,' really?
    'His whereabouts for the last four months have not been specific, really?
    You doubt that he has really been injured, really?
    'His inclusion back into the team is academic,really?
    'Any hope of him lifting the team is unfounded, really?

Vicente has moved a stage closer to his Albion comeback.

The Spanish playmaker resumed training with the first team squad yesterday.

Depending on how he reacts he could be in contention for a place on the bench against Derby County at The Amex on Saturday.

Manager Gus Poyet revealed to The Argus: “He trained with us for the first time after training all last week with the development squad.

“He looked all right, normal. I don’t know how his body is going to react. As you can imagine, the intensity of training with the kids is totally different to the intensity with us.

“Tuesday is usually a very hard day so we changed it slightly because of him. The first part was nice and steady, the last part quite hard, so he is going to feel it for sure. We’ll see how he reacts.”

Thigh trouble has restricted Vicente to one brief Championship appearance as a substitute so far this season, against Cardiff back in August.
