It’s like a game of Where’s Wally.
And given how important he has been to the team this year, leading them in a number of defensive categories (via WhoScored), I think it’s fair to say that the fans are probably right in wondering when he’ll be back in action. I’m of course talking about Samba Sow.
The 30-year-old Malian international has been out of the squad since the start of October with a hamstring injury, and although boss Sabri Lamouchi said that he would be back to training during the international break, but that didn’t seem to be the case. At least according to the Nottingham Forest Twitter feed.
They posted a photo of two other players who are coming back from injury, Carl Jenkinson and Alfa Semedo, but it was the absence of Sow that got a lot of fans talking, so much so that they didn’t really seem to care about the other two (except for one fan who seemed rather happy to see Semedo back), and it left all the fans asking precisely the same question.
Glad to see Semedo but no sow ???? pic.twitter.com/NFzgbh3Tsj

Should Sow's return mean a change in formation?
Seems like it might be in the club’s best interests to post a photo of him the second he comes back on the training ground, just to give people a little bit more peace of mind.
